Better Late Than Never, Right? The "I Saw You..." Book Signing with Julia Wertz in Brooklyn!

In celebration of the newly-released Julia Wertz-edited comics collection I Saw You...: Comics Inspired by Real-Life Missed Connections, Desert Island, a sweet indie comic store in Brooklyn, hosted a book-signing a couple of weeks ago for all the friends and fans of this amassing of hilarity.

In case you're one of those n00bs who happen to read my blog, Julia Wertz is the genius behind the hard-to-say-because-I'm-giggling title Fart Party, the hilarious, quirky autobio of a misplaced San Franciscoan in New York (check it out here, and of course pick up a copy at FPNYC).

Despite the barrage of hipster-types in attendance (and who am I too judge, really?), the signing went swimmingly, and the contributors seemed both pleased and slightly buzzed from the free beer.

And,*ahem*, did I mention I received my very own Missed Connection on Craigslist just last month? I feel so desired.

You can find out more about I Saw You...: Comics Inspired by Real-Life Missed Connections here and grab a copy here on Amazon.
