Short Comic: Julia Wertz (I <3 NY)

Click the image for the full one-page comic.


Julia Wertz writes autobiographical cartoons, some of which are archived on her website ( and others published in her books. During the course of her comics (which spans from 2003-present), she has been based in both San Francisco and Brooklyn New York and when I was in high school I had plans to go to San Fran and stalk her like a groupie.

Julia is gross, which for me, is the best part. But despite her best efforts (or more likely because of them) her comics can be very poignant in the most irreverent ways. She has written about her childhood, her sexual experiences, her parents divorce, addictions, mental health problems, her diagnosis with lupus, all while maintaining the illusion that she just don’t give a fuck.

Please join her in not giving any.
