The Fart Party


The Fart Party by Julia Wertz, collects the acclaimed and controversial web comic and zine. The foul-mouthed and hilarious stories here follow the life of Julia, a twentysomething woman living in San Francisco. Includes an introduction by Peter Bagge.

'If you're wondering what it's like to be a smart, self-aware young woman living in San Francisco in 2006, Wertz's comic has all the answers.' -THE ONION


'When I saw the title of Wertz's zine, I didn't expect much beyond raunchy toilet humor, so what I found inside was all the more surprising! Julia's drawings are awesome and her comic timing is perfect... underneath all the drunken craziness, there's a secret heart to the comic that is warm, and dare I say, innocent.' - JOHN PORCELLINO (King-Cat)

The Future Generation

by China Martens

The Zine-Book For Subculture Parents, Kids, Friends And Others!

'The original punk parent zine.' - Ariel Gore

'Future Generation is a must read for anyone who wants to understand Adrienne Rich's idea of mothering (Of Woman Born) based on the mother's own experience, not the patriarchal definition of motherhood in which mothers must be surveilled, controlled, advised, and punished. For here is an evolution of mothering, a memoir of a conscious mother. Get it. Read it. Pass it on.' - Katherine Arnoldi, author of The Amazing True Story of a Teenage Single Mom and All Things Are Labor

'Without a doubt, this book will go down as a parenting classic for the
future generations.' - Jessica Mills/MRR, author of My Mother Wears Combat Boots

'Martens has been writing since long before the mommy wars were a media trope, but her work is a powerful response to punditry casting institutional and political problems as personal issues of "work-life balance" for mothers (notably, not fathers).' - Lisa Jervis, Bitch Magazine
