Voices

Matthew Joseph "Matt" Hargreaves (born August 15, 1989) is the voice actor for Matt and the illustrator and writer for the new Eddsworld Comics. He was close friends with Edd Gould since primary school and has been involved with Eddsworld since it's beginning, as shown in the rough sketch of the series from 2002.

History with Eddsworld

Matt provided voices, writing, and drew in-between frames for a few of the episodes, most notably Zanta Claws III. As of 2017, he is now one of the comic illustrators, his first known comic being Comic #201: Junk Sale Pt. 1.

After Tom's Departure

After Tom stepped down as showrunner in March 2016, he told fans that Matt, as well as Edd's family, may take over. Edd's mother Sue Gould confirmed that she would be continuing Eddsworld.[1] Matt confirmed he would be up for voice acting [2] and said he was not done with Eddsworld, "not by a long shot."[3]

On March 16, 2016, after Part 2 of The End was released, Matt tweeted "Today a chapter of @Eddsworld will end and new one will begin, we're not sure where the future will take us but I hope you'll join us."[4]

Starting from January 2017, Matt became the primary illustrator and writer of the Eddsworld comics.
