1948 (a mere ten years after the dawn of the Golden Age and 8 full years before the Silver Age began) and going straight through to today.

Bolle started at Magazine Enterprises illustrating westerns, Tim Holt, Redmask and Best of the West. He designed and illustrated Childrens' records and albums. He worked for Western Publishing, Illustrating dozens of books from the "Golden Books" to Sherlock Holmes and other Adventure novels.

Bolle drew The Heart of Juliet Jones for King Feature from 1982 to 1999, and the long- running soap-opera strip Winnie Winkle dailies and Sundays for twenty years.


Veteran artist Frank Bolle now draws APARTMENT 3-G, one
