Just about every teen will find something to relate to and laugh at in this new collection. . . . Smart dialogues and one-liners match the clever and imaginative drawings."Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Duncan is bored with school. His mom talks his ear off. His dad's jokes are lame on a world-class level. But while Jeremy may believe much of his life is a big yawn, parent and teen readers of the comics pages from more than 1,000 different newspapers eagerly embrace the real-life humor and clever stories of Zits every day.
Zits: Super-Sized marks the third anxiously awaited treasury of the hilarious trials and tribulations of Jeremy and a dynamic cast of characters that includes girlfriend Sara, best-friends Hector and Pierce, and parents Connie and Walt. The strip is such a funny pages staple that it's hard to believe it was only six years ago that creators Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman were pondering whether Zits was the right name for their soon-to-debut strip. Charles Schulz told Borgman that it was "the worst name for a comic strip since Peanuts." It only stands to reason that the strip would go on to Peanuts-like notoriety. Today, it's impossible to imagine that the humorous, edgy strip could be known by any other name.
Complete with brilliant four-color illustrations, Zits: Super-Sized chronicles more than two years' worth of the wildly popular strip that's twice been honored with the award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip by the National Cartoonists Society.
