Publisher Comments:

Though voices may raise or doors may slam from time to time, the world of Zits is always an environment of an overarching love and care for each other within the Duncan family."

Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Duncan is the heart and soul of puberty. A typical teen, Jeremy is shy, self-absorbed, and bored. He loves hanging out and playing the guitar. He lives in the shadow of his older brother's perfect 4.0 grade-point-average, athletic talents, and flawless complexion. Jeremy's girlfriend, Sara, loves that she can get him to do anything for her. His best friends are Hector and Pierce, whom he's known for-almost-ever. His parents? Uncool baby boomers. (Unless you're a parent, then they are two suburban professionals just trying to do the best they can with a teenager going through that "awkward" phase.)

The enormously popular comic strip Zits depicts teenage and parental angst like no other. Teenage Tales is a cornucopia of Zits for die-hard fans everywhere.

Zits can be seen in more than 1,100 newspapers, which is almost unheard of-only 18 other comic strips have achieved that extraordinary milestone. Zits has also won the National Cartoonists Society's Best Comic Strip of the Year award for two years in a row.

Synopsis:

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.
