Nova Scotia's Frank magazine, a mix of news, satire and humour, ceases publication

·1 min read

HALIFAX — The Halifax-based satirical magazine Frank has announced its demise after more than three decades of publication.

A notice on the publication's website says the publishers "regret to announce the death of Frank Magazine Atlantic ... which occurred on September 14, 2022."

A photo montage depicting the cartoon figure who appeared on the magazine's masthead, lying in a coffin with his eyes closed, accompanies the announcement.

The website says the publication, which is distinct from the Ottawa-based magazine of the same name, had operated for 35 years.

It was widely sold at supermarket checkouts and was available online for a subscription fee, and the announcement says subscribers will be reimbursed.

The editor of the publication, Andrew Douglas, was not immediately available for comment.
