The Infinite Wait and Other Stories

These are comics filled with the sometimes messy, heartbreaking and hilarious moments that make up a life.

Portrait

Julia Wertz was born in the San Francisco bay area in 1982. She is the author/illustrator of the unfortunately titled autobiographical graphic novels "The Fart Party vol 1" and "vol 2," "Drinking at the Movies" and "The Infinite Wait and Other Stories." She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and makes comics at Pizza Island (RIP). Her work appears in absolutely no other publications and she's an irregular contributor to twitter.

Zitat
Nominated for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Reality-Based Work "Each story features outrageous, insightful and painfully honest tales from various chapters of her life. Though currently spending much of her time photographing abandoned urban sites, Wertz's future in comics remains blindingly bright, evidenced by this fine, must-have collection." -- Richard Pachter, "Miami Herald" "With drawings that appear simple and child-like, Wertz disarmed me, and drew me into a story that is both sardonic and poignant. She'll probably hate that description!" -- Jeff Smith, author of "Bone "and "RASL" "I love the cute rubbery way she [Julia Wertz] draws, which belies her candor and her dark dark humor." --" "Ellen Forney, author of "Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me" (Gotham Books, 2012) "Her [Wertz's] previous books had me snorting with laughter about every other page; this one is no different. In this collection of short stories, it's easy to go for laughs when describing your long history of bad jobs, not so easy to get at the funnybone when discussing being diagnosed with lupus when you are just twenty years old." -- Cynthia Clark Harvey, "Phoenix New Times" "Wertz's sassy sense of humor was an absolute riot to read, for even during the more serious situations she still remained her usual self. Highly relatable if you're just entering into your 20's, enjoy your booze, or if you've ever had to work in the food industry, for it sucks. A lot." -- Cameron Hatheway, "Bleeding Cool" "Wertz has a sarcastic, funny quip for every situation she finds herself in. There used to be a feature in "MAD Magazine" when I was a kid called "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions." "The Infinite Wait" reads like "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions" with a plot."- Robert Boyd, "The Great God Pan is Dead" "With an internal gaze that's unflinching and unforgiving, Wertz blows all comers out of the water. Her honesty is sear
