Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This anthology of comics inspired by real-life missed connection ads posted on Craigslist and in local papers around the country will tug at your heartstrings and make you think. Lonely hearts, romantics, and even cynics pore over missed connection ads in search of love, to gawk and giggle, or out of curiosity. These posted stranger sightings and chance encounters lay bare the truths and oddities of real-life loneliness and attractions and bring out the voyeur in the best of us. I Saw You takes this phenomenon and makes it even better.

Julia Wertz has gathered the stars and soon-to-be-stars of the graphic art world, including Peter Bagge, Jesse Reklaw, Tom Hart, Sam Henderson, Laura Park, Emily Flake, Keith Knight, Janelle Hessig, Gabrielle Bell, Aaron Renier, Austin English, Corinne Mucha, Jeffrey Brown, Alec Longstreth, Minty Lewis, Joey Sayers, David Malki, Kazimir Strzepek, Ken Dahl, Shannon Wheeler, Shaenon Garrity, Rodd Perry, Abby Denson, Damien Jay, Sarah Glidden, and dozens more, to interpret these plaintive, hopeful postings in drawings that range from laugh-out-loud funny to disarmingly strange.

Synopsis:

Bringing together drawings by both established and up-and-coming graphic artirts and cartoonists, a hilarious anthology of comics provides a whimsical look at people searching for love through a series of chance encounters, might-have-been moments, passionate longings, and offbeat attractions. Original. 30,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Featuring drawings by a mix of the best established and up-and-coming graphic artists, this anthology of comics is inspired by real-life missed connection ads posted on Craigslist and in local papers around the country.
