Matt Feazell is a Hamtramck, Michigan comics artist, primarily working in minicomics. He is best known for his wryly humorous The Amazing Cynicalman series and the simple “stick figure” art style he uses for it. He was also a regular contributor to Disney Adventures magazine.


Matt has appeared at multiple local comic-cons in Michigan.

The Amazing Cynicalman[edit]

In the 1980s he produced short pieces entitled “The Adventures of Zot! in Dimension 10½” which appeared as backup stories in issues of Scott McCloud’s series Zot!. Cynicalman and his supporting cast (including Antisocialman, CuteGirl, and StupidBoy) have been featured in Feazell’s minicomics, and in a weekly newspaper strip carried in a few Michigan papers from 1997–2002. Some of his work has been collected in paperbacks entitled Cynicalman, The Paperback (minicomics material), ERT! (minicomics), and The Amazing Cynicalman (the newspaper strip).

Cynicalman appears in the introduction to Scott McCloud's book Understanding Comics, in which his work is also cited as an example of “iconic” art taken to its greatest degree.

Matt has made a graphic novel called The Death of Antisocialman featuring Antisocialman and multiple characters from the cynicalman comics. There are 12 chapters in the novel series, all of which are available on Matt's site.

In 2012, Feazell released The Amazing Cynicalman, a feature-length film he wrote and directed, based on his comics work.
