Peepshow (comics)

"Peepshow" is an autobiographical comic book by Joe Matt, published by Drawn and Quarterly starting in 1992. Currently 14 issues of the comic book have been published, the latest in 2006.

The story is divided into three story arcs:

*#1 to #6 — about Matt's relationship with his girlfriend Trish and their breakup; collected in the book "The Poor Bastard", 2002.

*#7 to #10 — deals with Matt's childhood and family. Collected in the book "Fair Weather", 2002.

*#11 to #14 — depicts Matt arguing with his cartoonist friends and obsessing over his addiction to pornography. A new, cleaner style of drawing was adopted for this storyline. Printed in two colors on tinted paper. Collected in the book "Spent", 2007.

"Peepshow : The Cartoon Diary of Joe Matt" collects Matt's strips from 1987 through 1992.

In 2004, it was reported that HBO was developing an animated series based on "The Poor Bastard" that would be produced by Matt and David X. Cohen [ [ "HBO Developing Joe Matt's 'The Poor Bastard': Futurama's David X. Cohen at the Helm," ICv2, April 28, 2004.] ] . This project was abandoned in 2005.
