On today's episode I talk to Julia Wertz. Julia is a
professional cartoonist, amateur historian and part time urban
explorer/photographer. She made the comic books The Fart Party vol
1 and vol 2 (collected in Museum of Mistakes) and the graphic
novels Drinking at the Movies, and The Infinite Wait and Other
Stories, both of which were nominated for Eisner Awards. Her newest
book, Tenements, Towers & Trash: An Unconventional, Illustrated
History of New York City, was published by Black Dog &
Leventhal/Hachette in Oct 2017, for which she won the 2018 Brendan
Gill Prize. Julia currently does monthly comics and illustration
for the New Yorker and her work appears semi-regularly in
publications such as the New York Times, Harper’s Magazine, the
Believer, and Medium.
