    This is a collection of Zits comics.

    Contrary to the title, it is not primarily about zombies or Halloween focused.

    The humor can lead to the dry, reality based side of life, but this can still be enjoyable. As with many comics, some frames are more humorous than others. The animations/drawings also lend a hand in the humor and character development.

    Overall, a fun read.
