Nominated for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Reality-Based Work Each story features outrageous, insightful and painfully honest tales from various chapters of her life. Though currently spending much of her time photographing abandoned urban sites, Wertz's future
in comics remains blindingly bright, evidenced by this fine, must-have collection. -- Richard Pachter, Miami Herald With drawings that appear simple and child-like, Wertz disarmed me, and drew me into a story that is both sardonic and poignant. She'll probably hate that description! -- Jeff Smith, author of Bone and RASL I love the cute rubbery way she [Julia Wertz] draws, which belies her candor and her dark dark humor. -- Ellen Forney, author of Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me (Gotham Books, 2012) Her [Wertz's] previous books had me snorting with laughter about every other page; this one is no different. In this collection of short stories, it's easy to go for laughs when describing your long history of bad jobs, not so easy to get at the funnybone when discussing being diagnosed with lupus when you are just twenty years old. -- Cynthia Clark Harvey, Phoenix New Times Wertz's sassy sense of humor was an absolute riot to read, for even during the more serious situations she still remained her usual self. Highly relatable if you're just entering into your 20's, enjoy your booze, or if you've ever had to work in the food industry, for it sucks. A lot. -- Cameron Hatheway, Bleeding Cool Wertz has a sarcastic, funny quip for every situation she finds herself in. There used to be a feature in MAD Magazine when I was a kid called Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions. The Infinite Wait reads like Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions with a plot.- Robert Boyd, The Great God Pan is Dead With an internal gaze that's unflinching and unforgiving, Wertz blows all comers out of the water. Her honesty is searing, caustic, strengthening and yet not without fear. Her truths are coated in an equally zingy humour, a cloak that makes them less scary and more manageable. -- Zainab Akhtar, The Comics Beat Wertz has shown us her drunken side, but has never talked about her battle with Systemic Lupus like she does here in both a heart-wrenching and heart-warming way. While one of her more serious works, it's still told with that great sense of humor we've all come to love. She just gets better and better! - Jimmy Aquino, Boing Boing Wertz has grown by leaps and bounds into one of comics' best memoirists and funniest writers, and one gets the sense that the best is yet to come from her... By going over old territory with new insights, Wertz not only makes those older books better in light of what is revealed here, she has also crafted a moving and funny new work that's the best of her career to date. -- Rob Clough, The Comics Journal The Infinite Wait is a welcome leap forward for her [Julia Wertz's] storytelling skills, a book full of the small moments in life and the big fears as well. - Kiel Phegley, Comic Book Resources
