About this author

Drinking at the Movies (2010)
language
English
3.9 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Growing up can be hard to do, especially when one does not wish to. This autobiographical graphic novel covers the high and low times of the author over a period of two years. In that time she moves from San Francisco to New York, lives in several places, and gets fired from six ...

review 1: This is comics as literature at it's finest. Wertz is brilliant. Dealing with intertwining autobio topics like illness, reclusion, alcoholism, literature, family, and work, this comic is a massive piece of work, a series of shorter stories that weave together as one. Next up I ne...

review 1: This was a fun, quick read. It's as the title describes--a collection of Craigslist missed connection ads via short comics, usually a page long. The comics are by turns creepy and sad and funny. The day I finished it, I passed it along to a friend who also loved it. I rather hope...

English

review 1: This story isn't exactly what I expected, which was a series of vignettes about the adventures of a person who routinely drinks at the movies. Drinking at the movies did take place, but it was more symbolic of a life lived in limbo. Intensely funny but not without its dark side, ...
The Fart Party, Vol. 2 (2009)
language
English

review 1: I have inadvertently acquainted myself with Julia Wertz's work backwards, starting with Drinking at the Movies and working back towards The Fart Party. I really like her style, but have noticed that too much of the work is recycled. The subject matter deals with the daily insults...
