Overview

 "[Zits] is one of the most visually innovative comic strips to come along in years. Borgman's graphic pyrotechnics are the perfect complement to Scott's carefully designed layouts."—Brian Walker, The Comics Since 1945

The world is full of issues but none so pressing as those faced by a teenager. For proof, look no further than Zits, the timely teenage-focused strip that now appears in more than 1,100 newspapers worldwide. This two-time recipient of the National Cartoonists Society's Award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip follows the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, a kid bursting with questions, concerns, hormones, and insecurities. Cast adrift between the worlds of peer and parent, Jeremy survives by clinging to his sense of humor . . . the universal flotation device of the teenage years.

  Creators Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman pull all of this eating, dating, driving, and parental angst and energy together in Road Trip! Zits Sketchbook #7. This hilarious collection contains the very popular series of strips that follows Jeremy and his best amigo, Hector, as they actually (okay, and accidentally) get to test-drive their van. Yes, that van on the cover.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Duncan is the hapless hero of the Zits comic strip, which appears in over 1,100 newspapers worldwide and has twice won the National Cartoonists Society Award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip. Jeremy has a lot to contend with, from his hopelessly square parents to his outspoken girlfriend to the horrors of high school, but he usually prevails. In fact, in this collection he finally-if inadvertently-gets to test drive the rusting van he and his best friend Hector have purchased. The imaginative line drawings are a perfect match for the clever concepts and dialog that focus on the ups and downs of teenage life. This will be greatly enjoyed by teens, as well as by anyone who interacts with them. KLIATT Codes: JSA-Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Andrews McMeel, 128p. illus., Ages 12 to adult.
