i’ve answered this elsewhere but short version is when i first had published work the only attention i’d had in comics was as ‘matt fraction’ which was my user name on the old warren ellis forum. so it was marketing and now it’s just this silly thing.
and it came from a telemarketer mispronouncing my last name on a call.
