Overview

Widely lauded by critics, colleagues, and readers, Zits is has been twice honored with the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award as the Best Newspaper Comic Strip, and received the Max and Moritz Award for Best International Comic Strip.

This treasury, Big Honkin' Zits, represents a compilation of Don't Roll Your Eyes at Me, Young Man! and Are We an "Us"?. With friends and family, Jeremy ponders life's great philosophical questions, such as, "If the universe is constantly expanding, how come the sky never gets any bigger?"

Big Honkin' Zits masterfully guides its readers through the real-life joys and heartaches of being a teenager.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
The hilarious trials and tribulations of 15-year-old Jeremy are featured in the syndicated comic strip "Zits"; this volume, a sequel to the Humongous Zits treasury, brings together two collections, Don't Roll Your Eyes at ME, Young Man, and Are We an "Us"? Jeremy's ambition is to be a "rock god," but meanwhile he must contend with high school, well-meaning but clueless parents, and the ups and down of his relationship with his girlfriend, Sara. His best friend Hector offers support, luckily, and he's always got his rock band, the rusty van he and Hector are renovating, and his fantasies to help him pull through. Cartoonists Scott and Borgman really understand the yearnings and relationships of the teen years, and convey them wittily. Visually, the strips capture Jeremy's slovenliness and the characters' endlessly varied and amusing facial expressions; most are b/w, with some in color. All teens will find something to relate to and roar with laughter at here. Category: Miscellaneous. KLIATT Codes: JSA*—Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2001, Andrews McMeel, 256p. illus., Ages 13 to adult.
