EW's GRADE
A

Details Release Date: Aug 15, 2002; Writer: Joe Matt

''Autobiographical comics'' are often marked by boorish mopishness, but Joe Matt's hilarious self-eviscerations are an exception. Fair Weather -- collected from the cartoonist's continuing series Peepshow -- portrays the artist as a greedy young geek, incessantly warring with his mother and willing to sell out his only friend for a comic book. Richly evoking a '70s suburban childhood without sentimentality, Matt's poignant graphic novella is as refreshing as a Slurpee on a muggy afternoon.
