I was announced as the Runner-Up for the DASH Grant from the Short Run Seattle comics festival
They wrote the following:
"“The American Dream & Me” will be Matt’s final mini-comic in a trilogy about the dynamic professional wrestler Dusty Rhodes, known for his common man charm. The minicomic also features poignant autobiographical vignettes about his own conspiracy and esoteric theories and small town Midwest life, all told through the device of a wrestling 'promo'."
I hope to table at Short Run this year. Here's the save the date info:
Also, the first two parts of the Dusty Rhodes Trilogy are available at my etsy store: www.etsy.com/shop/MFMatter
