Meet the Author

Jerry Scott has been a professional cartoonist (aka getting paid to do a comic strip) for almost thirty years, and has been the corecipient of the National Cartoonists Society's Best Comic Strip of the Year honor four times. Sweet! In 1997 (the nineties rock!), and along with the artistic genius of Jim Borgman, Zits the comic strip was born. Jerry is a total overachiever, the recipient of many prestigious awards, which are too numerous and we're too lazy to list—just trust us, he's awesome. He's currently livin' the dream in California with his family.

Jim Borgman has been a cartoonist since kindergarten. An overachiever like Jerry, he has been voted the Best Editorial Cartoonist in America five times (whoa!), been the corecipient (with Jerry) of the Best Comic Strip of the Year Award three times, and he's won most of the top cartooning awards ever presented. Jim's cartoons have hung in some pretty serious places, like the Smithsonian, the National Archives, and various presidential libraries—and above the president of the United States' personal toilet (okay, that one's pretty cool). Jim lives in Colorado with his family.

Zits: Shredded 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

From this book, you can see why tweens really like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. Rarely do you find a YA book that takes comics and novels and puts them together well. It is usually one or the other. However, tweens have obviously devoured this hybrid genre, so why wouldn’t other age groups? Skeptical at first, it only took a few pages to be genuinely hooked. Not only is this book funny, but the comics themselves pair perfectly with the written test and tell a story of their own. Various topics from using Groupons, eating awful, vinyl records and even a social media junky hippie can be found here. “We have a Groupon”…”(groan) Of course you do…” Although a quick read, Zits: Shredded is the perfect book to consider when you need something light to just hold you over while on the hunt for your next great novel. The characters are easy to relate too and page after page, your mouth just might start hurting from all of the grinning you’ll do. This is a no-brainer, so go ahead and pick this book up! *This book was provided in exchange for an honest review *You can view the original review at San Francisco Book Review
