Julia Wertz signs Fart Party at Quimby’s!

Saturday, November 24th, 8:00PM

The Fart Party collection published by Atomic Books is available now. The book includes the 80% of comics NOT posted on the internet, interviews, funny fan letters and never before seen illustrations; plus a funny intro by Peter Bagge. Don’t buy it for yer mom.

Check out Fart Party online:

Julia is 24 and never went to art school, but she does have a bullshit BA that she will never use. Despite the fact that she is often angry and overreacting in her comics, in reality, her backwoods upbringing & hippie parents provided her with a healthy dose of west coast mentality that also cause her to still use words like “rad” “hella” and “dude” and she really doesn’t give two damp shits what you think about that. She’s fond of dance parties but thinks long walks on the beach are totally gay.

Julia is also the editor of “I Saw You…” an anthology of missed connection comics being published by Three Rivers Press/Random House that is accepting submissions until December 2007 and will be out in the fall of 2008. You can buy this for yer mom.

She will be on hand to signs books and get drunk.
