Museum of Mistakes: The Fart Party Collection: 400 page omnibus of my early comics, including The Fart Party Vol 1 & 2 as well over 150 pages of previously unpublished material, some of which ostensibly would have been Fart Party Vol 3, had I done a third volume. There is also a full color section of my earliest early work (before Fart Party) as well as a process section, funny/mean fan letters and answers, collaboration pieces, random illustrations and short story comics.

The Infinite Wait & Other Stories: A collection of three short comic stories, one about shitty jobs, one about a shitty autoimmune disease (systemic lupus) I was diagnosed with, and one about my  love of public libraries, especially the one in my hometown. The title of the book is a jab at the “New York literary elite,” meaning all those writers whose books you and all your Gen X friends have on their shelves but never got around to reading. Read more info and samples. Buy it in stores, online or from me.

Foreign editions: French= L’Agrume

Drinking at the Movies: Newly re-released from Koyama Press with bonus material and a handwritten intro by Janeane Garofalo.  A graphic novel about my first year in NYC- all the apartments, jobs, roommates, etc…all that hot garbage that comes with being in your mid 20’s. It’s basically a follow up to the Fart Party Vol 1 & 2 and is mostly about what a fucking moron I was when I first moved to New York. Read more info and samples. Buy it in stores, online or from me.
