Overview

Fitting in. Being different. Growing up. Staying a kid.Zits is a comic strip about the funniest, most painfully emotionally charged, physically demanding, mentally challenging, and colorful times of our lives-adolescence. Those who are living it can relate. And those who have been through it cannot remember the time without smiling, or at least wincing at the arrogance and ignorance we all mistook as maturity during those few eternal years.

Zits: Sketchbook #1 is an inside look at life from the point of view of Jeremy, a private 15-year-old who is desperately hacking his way out of childhood and into maturity. He labors in the shadow of Chad, his perfect older brother who is away at college. Jeremy is a freshman in high school whose main pastimes are hanging out with his best friend, Hector Garcia, forming a garage band, and being amazed at his parents' spectacular ignorance about almost everything. Impatient, self-absorbed, emotional, and bored silly, Jeremy is the essence of adolescence. Zits resonates with its fans because the strip contains so much truth and insight, wrapped in an uproarious context that's all too familiar to everyone who's been 15 or has parented a teenager.

    Zits: Great and Funny Comics for People of All Ages

    Some comic books people read are just plain dumb. Others are too gory, and some are just so darn confusing! Zits is NOT any of these things. People of all ages can enjoy this funny and realistic cartoon of a bored fifteen-year-old living with two dorky parents. He struggles with things we teenagers struggle with and has hilarious adventures that you are probably familiar with! These sketchbooks introduce Jeremy and his family and give you a good idea of what's going on by adding humor and good drawings to the book.
