Early life

Matt Fraction was born December 1, 1975 in Chicago Heights, Illinois.[1] He developed an affinity for telling stories as a child, and enjoyed reading both comic books and comic strips. The first comic he remembers buying was Batman #316 (Oct. 1979). Comic strips he enjoyed included Peanuts and Doonesbury. He became a regular, weekly comic reader around the time that the 1985–86 DC Comics storyline "Crisis on Infinite Earths" ended, though he found that storyline too bizarre and impenetrable to a new reader; as a result, he gravitated toward Marvel Comics, finding Spider-Man to be his favorite, along with other books such as Star Wars and G.I. Joe.[2]

In the late 1990s Fraction worked as an employee at the Charlotte, North Carolina-based comics retailer Heroes Aren't Hard to Find.[3][4]
