The long awaited film from the stick figure master Matt Feazell
29 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matt Feazell is secretly famous, which is the best kind of fame. And thus, news of production of The Amazing Cynicalman has been greeted with joy, shock and awe by his legion of fan.

I am just kidding, this is really a great addition to the Cynicalman story, I am 100% positive! Starting out in the dim, dark past, thousands of years ago, 1981, Cynicalman took the alternative comics world by storm. Why, you may ask? Because it was (and is) just so gosh darned funny! Pee your pants funny. Fall out of your chair funny.

Not that Feazell's artwork leaves anything to be desired. The illustrations, characters and backgrounds in Feazell's comics could best be described as "efficient." This is high praise in the comics world, where, in the best works, every pen stroke counts. And now The Amazing Cynicalman (the movie) continues in this time honored tradition.
