It’s been a while since I talked about Julia Wertz. Her latest comic for the New Yorker is absolutely timely and a great way to get excited to rewatch the 1989 horror classic Pet Sematary. Julia Wertz talk about her childhood reading of Stephen King’s book Pet Sematary, convincing her mother that she’s “totally old enough to handle it”. At least until something kind of creepy happens.
This is a perfect way to get to know Julia Wertz comics. It’s got her wit, humour and personal touch that makes her stories so delightful to read.
