Crack of Noon
A Zits Treasury
By Jim Borgman, Jerry Scott
One of only 18 comic strips in history to top the thousand-newspaper mark, Zits now appears in more than 1,200 papers across the country and around the world. Though it displays a middle-class American teenager and his family, Zits‘ humor, its struggles with youth angst and issues, and its family situations strike a universal nerve.
I am Jeremy and I am, unfortunately, 15 years old. A high school freshman with, thank God, four good friends but other than that a seriously boring life in a seriously boring town made livable only by the knowledge that someday in the far-off future at least this will all be over and I’ll turn 16 and get a driver’s license, which I so richly deserve, and then life will finally be good. Which it isn’t now, although it isn’t completely bad since I’ve got best friends (Hector and Pierce) that I can totally trust (seriously), Sara, a girlfriend (sort of) that loves me (sort of), a band that’s beginning to come together, no joke, and sounds fairly okay but would sound even better if everybody would just show up for practice for once on the same day at the same time, which, by the way has only happened once. Oh, and my parents are seriously ruining my life.
This Zits treasury combines strips from Thrashed and Pimp My Lunch. That means fans can once again enjoy such Zits classic moments as the joys of instant messaging, the proper way to apply deodorant, how to put on an attitude, and much, much more. This is Zits at its best.
