Joe Frank is a man from Alabama and is the father of both Andy Frank and Eddie Frank. He is introduced for the first time in Spawn Issue #29. When in public, Joe has a reputation for being an outstanding citizen and loved police officer - but behind closed doors, he is a violent man who beats his children every chance he gets. It is noted that he makes absolutely sure that him and his two boys make it to church every Sunday. His wife died years earlier, so the boys have nobody to protect them anymore. After his encounter with Spawn, Joe went crazy and began brutally beating little Andy. This resulted him being shot to death by his eldest son, Eddie.
