Overview

Appearing in nearly 1,400 newspapers today, Zits has been a runaway success on the funny pages since its July 1997 debut. Creators Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman have won praise from fans and fellow cartoonists alike for their gently accurate portrayal of the angst, concerns, and questions that arrive during adolescence.

Creators Scott and Borgman understand the plight and subtle hilarity of being a teenager and parenting a teenager, which is why in 1998 and 1999, Zits won the Best Newspaper Comic Strip Award by the National Cartoonists Society, and the Max and Moritz Award for Best International Comic Strip in 2000. Zits strikes a universal nerve.

Zits is one of only 18 comic strips throughout history to top the thousand-newspaper mark. It appears in nearly 1,400 newspapers across the country and around the world, and is beloved by fans and fellow cartoonists alike. Zits brilliantly confronts issues affecting teens and their families, providing humor and perspective to everyone.

This Zits collection, with strips that appeared in print from April 2005 to February 2006, delivers the strip's usual mix of knowing humor and insight.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Paula Rohrlick
This latest collection of Zits comic strips has an illustration of an upside-down car on the cover, typical of the exaggerated and frequently hilarious brand of humor of this nationally syndicated series. The strips feature 15-year-old Jeremy and his long-suffering parents ("Being a disappointment to your children is the surest sign that you're doing something right," they've come to realize), his friends Hector, Pierce, and Sara, and other bit players in his all-too-recognizable suburban teen universe. Jeremy suffers through typical adolescent trials and tribulations, from teaching his father to use the DVD player ("Sometimes I wonder if they'll ever be able to survive on their own," Jeremy frets) to fantasizing about his guidance counselor to coping with high school hallway traffic hazards. A favorite read of both YAs and adults, this is great fun for public YA collections and nice for school libraries, too.
