Viewotron is a two-person comics anthology, featuring 10 short stories by Sam Sharpe and Peach S Goodrich! Sam and Peach’s stories are inventive, humorous, and heartfelt. Sam’s tend to be more cerebral, revolving around an interesting premise: what if your friends invent a religion that catches on, or what if you were so lonely, your body shrank or expanded dependent on how a friend perceived you? Peach’s comics work more on a emotional level, one story focusing on the love and support of family and friends, and another about a misunderstood monster.
Sam and Peach have known each other since college (a portion of their college days are captured in one of their collaborative comics in the issue), and their comics style grew up together, influencing each other. Their stories compliment each other well, and their stylized cartooning is a lot of fun to read. Get ready to be delighted, and for a guffaw or two!

Sam and Peach self-published two minicomics titled, Viewotron No. 1 and Viewotron No. 2. Issue 2 of the self-published series was dedicated to Sam’s Ignatz- and Eisner-nominated short story, “Mom.” Issue 3 of the self-published series (which was only ever available at SPX 2017) was picked up by AdHouse Books and renamed, Viewotron: Comics and Stories No. 1 in 2018!
