I Saw You...

This book is a based on an interesting idea. Julia Wertz put out a call to the comic drawing community to submit comics based on "missed connections" postings on Craig's List. These were new to me -- people posting messages to others that they had seen somewhere, but failed to make the connection they wanted to -- that is, failed to secure a name or phone number. So, they post on Craig's list, hoping that somehow they might be able to have a second chance. There's a kind of poignant sadness in this, which makes for some good storytelling. Mostly, these are funny interpretations of these often bizarre messages, but some are quite sweet.

Anyway, it's a different read, and a fun one.
