is one of the most visually innovative comic strips to come along in years. Borgman's graphic pyrotechnics are the perfect complement to Scott's carefully designed layouts.""-Brian Walker, The Comics Since 1945
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. This two-time recipient of the National Cartoonists Society's Award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip follows the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, a kid bursting with questions, concerns, hormones, and insecurities. Cast adrift between the worlds of peer and parent, Jeremy survives by clinging to his sense of humor . . . the universal flotation device of the teenage years.
Creators Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman pull all of this eating, dating, driving, and parental angst and energy together in Road Trip Zits Sketchbook #7. This hilarious collection contains the very popular series of strips that follows Jeremy and his best amigo, Hector, as they actually (okay, and accidentally) get to test-drive their van. Yes, that van on the cover.
Jim Borgman and his wife are the proud parents of five children. They live in Cincinnati, Ohio.
