For over ten years Joe Matt has been notorious in cult circles for the embarrassing frankness with which he reveals his distressing habits and predilections. Utterly shameless and completely self-absorbed, Joe Matt writes with an exhibitionist's enthusiasm for his favorite subject, himself.
In his new graphic novel, Fair Weather, Joe examines his 1970s suburban childhood. In a surprisingly tasteful and thoughtful memoir young Joe Matt is a selfish child who steals from stores, takes advantage of his friends, threatens to burn his mother's house down, teases those weaker than himself, and reveals himself to be a fairly normal child. Completely unsentimental and strangely kind of endearing, Fair Weather continues the American tradition of hilarious self-exhibitionism.

In 1987, tired of coloring dopey superhero comics for a living, Joe Matt started writing and drawing a "diary", a funny, pathetic, page-by-page account of his daily life. These single-page comics were later published in various magazines, including Drawn & Quarterly, and by 1992 Matt had his own comic book series, Peepshow, devoted to his peculiar form of autobiographical angst. Matt was born in 1963 in Philadelphia where, evidently, he never learned the meaning of shame. Peepshow is a strangely callow depiction of his failures. Matt's unflattering, although not inaccurate self-portrayal, has provoked one of the liveliest letter columns in comix. Witness a typical sentiment from readers: "No wonder you're all alone - you're just a pathetic fucking loser!".About the Author:
