In 2004, Julia Wertz began a series of funny, irreverent autobiographical comics she called “The Fart Party.” After posting these comics online at to acclaim and controversy. She eventually started collecting these comics as self-published minis which found their way to Atomic Books in Baltimore who thought they ought to be collected into a proper book so as to garner Julia more laughs and hate mail.

As these things go, the first volume was so successful, there was a second volume. Both are out of print, but Museum of Mistakes collects them into one book, plus numerous pages of Julia’s early comic work, unpublished and/or previously uncollected comics, short stories, illustrations, process pages, hate mail, sketchbook pages, tear stains and more.
