Drawing Under the Influence: New Comic from Julia Wertz

by emily dirienzo


Folks in N.Y.C, San Francisco or Baltimore better run for cover ‘cos Julia Wertz is gonna rip a big one! This September comic artist Julia Wertz, creator of the charmingly awkward comic The Fart Party and editor of I Saw You…, is set to release yet another collection of angst-wrought, potty-mouthed, visual vignettes for our viewing pleasure.

September 3rd Wertz gets drunk in public with Drinking at the Movies a hilarious full-length graphic memoir about the artist’s transition from a life on the West Coast to the friendless streets of New York City. 

In DATM, bad jobs and bad break-ups are chased with booze and wise cracks giving off an oh-too-familiar vibe that confronts the vices of  Jane Everywoman while simultaneously allowing us to see through her unique perspective.

            The Fart…err…release party begins with a reading/viewing at Brooklyn’s Desert Island followed by a mini tour with a few pit stops in Baltimore, Bethesda and back to Brooklyn, before heading to Wertz’s old stomping grounds, San Fran.

            For all the deets on upcoming readings and the free Fart Party web comic visit fartparty.org.
