The Amazing Cynicalman Vol. II is coming from Matt Feazell

Cover-w-Title_2048.jpg
Mini-comics and stick-figure philosophy pioneer Matt Feazell has been turning out his delightful mini-comics since the ’80s. Now he had an Indiegogo campaign going for The Amazing Cynicalman Vol. 2, a collection of his weekly strips from 2002 on. Pledging $20 gets you a signed copy of the 160-page book, with a sketch on the title page, AND a collectible Cynicalman Thank-You card. Other perks are listed on the page, but in a note Feazell reports that the $300 perk is already gone: a set of 46 Cynicalman minicomic first printings from 1982 on… and his actual 1984 Swingline SF-15 Saddle Stapler with signed Letter of Authenticity.

The collection include not only Cynicalman but such supporting characters again like Stupid Boy, Antisocialman and CuteGirl, and new ones: Maw & Paw Headbanger, Ken Tucky, and Marlene Brando.

For those not familiar with Feazell’s work, he’s one of the purest cartoonists working, world building with a few simple lines.

Feazell has already made $1572 of his modest $850 goal—sometimes the good guys win.

    Order his movie, also from his website, if you can, and you can believe a stick figure is real!

  2. Thank you for reporting this! Pledging NOW!

    Wow! Something positive about a creator here for a change. How wonderful! Great to see some love for Matt and his work. Been a fan of his forever.

    Cynical Man is the best. I will be getting this.

  5. My favorite “collected edition” is the brown paper bag full of Cynical Man minis I got from Matt about seven years ago. I have no idea how to shelve it, but I love it.

  6. One of my all-time favorites! My favorite score during my short time in Michigan was finding a bunch of Feazell minicomics at Green Brain Comics. This might well be the best money I spend on comics all year.

    I was just thinking about Matt the other day when I stopped my car and said, “ERT!” outloud. Glad to see that he’s still makin’ them comics.

  8. Jackie Estrada says:

    I signed up!

  9. Jay Barnet says:

    Love this. Feazell is a genius.

  10. Todd VerBeek says:

    If Matt’s enthusiasm and humor could be harnessed to generate electricity, Hamtramck would be the next Dubai.

  11. Matt Feazell is a national treasure.

  12. Stewart MacWilliam says:

    There’s a reason Matt’s mentioned in the very first panel of Understanding Comics.
