Widely lauded by critics, colleagues, and readers, Zits
is has been twice honored with the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award as the Best Newspaper Comic Strip, and received the Max and Moritz Award for Best International Comic Strip.
This treasury, Big Honkin' Zits, represents a compilation of Don't Roll Your Eyes at Me, Young Man! and Are We an "Us"?. With friends and family, Jeremy ponders life's great philosophical questions, such as, "If the universe is constantly expanding, how come the sky never gets any bigger?" He tackles serious issues, too, deciding with his buddy, Hector, to shave his head to support a friend's mom who's battling cancer.
Big Honkin' Zits masterfully guides its readers through the real-life joys and heartaches of being a teenager.
"Zits" appealingly portrays the humorous ups and downs of being 15 when your older brother is perfect. Now Scott and Borgman's humor is captured in this anthology of full-color Sunday comic strips.
