Fart Party vol 2

March 24, 2011

The Fart Party vol 2 (Atomic Books 2009) This edition is forever out of print, but can be seen in in full in Museum of Mistakes: The Fart Party Collection, which you can buy  directly from me.  All books come signed/doodled with various choices of extras like prints and hand drawn panels.

From the publisher: After trying and failing at a long distance relationship with her boyfriend in the original Fart Party collection, Julia quits her job and travels from coast to coast, meeting many strangers who will soon become a huge part of her world. She returns to San Francisco to wisecrack her way through a mundane minimum wage job and learns to love being single. But when her neighborhood gets increasingly violent and she comes down with a serious case of wanderlust, she begins to pack her bag for Portland. At the last minute, she changes her mind and goes to Brooklyn instead. This collection includes Fart Party #4.5 #7, plus some never before seen comics. With a foreword by Nicholas Gurewitch (Perry Bible Fellowship).

From me: A mishmash of stories about a cross country trip, work kerfuffles, bums, sketchy diary comics, moving home and getting ready to move to New York, plus a few longer stories from my childhood and San Francisco days. It’s kind of a mess, but it works! (I hope)
