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.
