If have ANY interest in this guy, start with Fair Weather It s a cool, autobiographical glimpse into his life A real set up to his books Spent and The Poor Bastard which are kind of sad, neurotic tales of hoarding and chronic masturbating With Fair Weather, you really appreciate the innocence he had as a kid And if you grew up collecting comics, it s a pretty interesting tale of a lonely fanboy It s a world of bicycles, 7 11 Slurpees and late night horror movie hosts My favorite work of his so far.
[[ FREE ]] ✓ Fair Weather ↟ 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, HimselfIn His New Graphic Novel, Fair Weather, Joe Examines His S 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 A well drawn teenage confessional from Joe Matt with his usual blunt and guilty insecure honesty Very good of its type, and Matt s drawing skill is beyond question, but really this kind of suburban adolescent coming of age saga is now a hopelessly overworked cliche in comics. It was good Not amazing, but good A small story about a small town Pretty straightforward stuff Glad I read it. There s a rule in autobiographical comics that states when you feel conflicted about whether or not something is too personal to share, share it I think Joe Matt may have taken that to heart than any other comics artist, maybe ever although I m not convinced he is ever conflicted about anything I used to think that David Heatley was the most brutally honest creator in comics but clearly the title belongs to Joe Matt Fair Weather is an unflinching flawed but worthwhile memoir of what a shitty kid he once was.Yelling at his mom, being selfish and narcissistic, stealing from his so called friends, lying, picking on the mentally disabled There s no way around it young Joe Matt is not a protagonist you feel much sympathy for There are a few hints that, like most geeky kids, he was bullied and suffered with low self esteem, but Matt doesn t apologize for, nor does he revel in, his misdeeds Instead, Fair Weather is a raw, beautifully drawn document about the difficulties some self made of growing up and the shifting alliances of childhood I found myself wanting Matt to get his act together but I also wanted to punch him in the face.At the very least, I respect anyone that can be so vulnerable and forthright about their flaws Fair Weather is not a pleasant read but it s a story worth telling. Joe Matt s autobiographical comics have never flinched from portraying himself as anything other than a flawed human being and Fair Weather is no different The story takes place over a weekend when he s a pre pubescent boy who is obsessed with comics Over the course of the book he has an argument with his mother about mowing the lawn, leading to her throwing his comic book collection out, tries to finagle an Action Comics 1 from an unknowing older boy, and tries to dodge an unhappy acquaintance who was swindled by Matt and wants revenge The Americana flavour is strong throughout Balmy Saturday afternoons spent watching horror films and wrestling, going out for slurpees, digging hideouts in the yard, it s all chronicled throughout Matt himself is portrayed as spoilt, manipulative, greedy, unpleasant, and deceitful, and like in his other books, never makes him seem a nice person, all to the good as it makes for a funny read I like Matt s drawing style and while it s not as polished as it was in Spent it is excellent in this book His exaggerated facial expressions add to the pettiness of Matt s own obsessions such as collecting comic book slurpee cups A fantastic read and an excellent comic book from an artist who produces far too few books for a man of such talents If you re interested in indie comics then Joe Matt is your man. En pit nyt Joe Mattin Fair Weatherista ihan niin paljon kuin aikaisemmin lukemastani Poor Bastardista , mutta siit huolimatta t m Peepshow n numerot 7 10 sis lt nyt albumi oli ihan positiivinen lukukokemus Fair Weather on omael m kerrallinen kuvaus 70 luvulla eletyst varhaisnuoruudesta, johon liittyiv t oleellisena osana sarjakuvalehtien ker ily, yl osattomissa aurinkoa ottavien naisten tirkistely ja kulmakunnan kovimman kundin v ltteleminen Matt ei t ll k n kertaa s stele itse n, vaan kuvaa itsens kavereitaan huijaavana, pelkurimaisena, ahneena ja jatkuvasti valittavana pikku paskiaisena Lukijan on siis v h sen vaikea samaistua p henkil n, mutta toisaalta on vaiheeksi ihan virkist v lukea omael m kerrallista sarjakuvaa, jossa tekij ei kuvaa itse n sympaattisena heppuna tai v rinymm rrettyn taiteilijana. Joe Matt s work puts me in a terrific mood Unless he can somehow benefit from being friendly or helpful, he is always exemplifying the exact opposite of those traits, and pre teen Matt, brought to vivid, unforgettable life in Fair Weather , is pure, hilarious, wonderful human evil He s a lying, baiting, snivelling coward, interested in nothing than getting his way, and God help the woeful parent who obstructs him In short, this brisk account of a mildly turbulent weekend in 70 s era suburbia perfectly encapsulates everything that rules and sucks about being a rotten little American kid I can t wait to read it again. Portraying Joe Matt in a innocent and simpler time than the porn masturbation obsessed Spent Here s brief glimpse into the early 70 s suburban childhood Joe Matt doesn t exactly try to make himself look like a kid who s very nice and sweet Instead he comes across as a mean, ungrateful, lying kid, a bed wetting coward who even threatens to burn down his mothers house if she hides his comics again Gotta love that honesty It only covers 2 days, one weekend, from his childhood and feels a little too short to leave any bigger impression But if you liked any of Joe Matt s other stuff, you ll enjoy this one too. This wasn t bad, but I didn t like it About Joe Matt s bratty youth of yelling at his mom, being a cheapskate and a bad friend, and loving hoarding comic books It was actually totally well illustrated and well imagined characters, but well, Joe Matt was always a twerp, and how much fun is that Not that much.Wooo.
