Why is that all of us at one time in our lives are/or will be teenagers and yet when we grow up and have kids of our own and they become teenagers we are completely baffled by them?
Speaking as a parent of two kids: one boy and one girl, who (thankfully are grown up) I dealt with teenagers. I even taught high school so I dealt with a plethora of teenagers of all temperaments and types.
Teenagers are confusing, compulsive, contradictory in their behavior, sometimes callous and always, always, a conundrum.
And yet they can be the most loving, caring, thoughtful and compassionate people at times. They drive you crazy!
For 20 years Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman have examined, sweat over and portrayed teenagers with all their foibles, faults and strengths in their awesome ‘Zits’ comic strip.
The star of the strip: Jeremy Duncan, is the perfect vehicle by which Scott and Borgman were, and are, able to demonstrate the complexity and contradictions of a typical teenager.
Join Jeremy and his friends as they confuse their parents, confound their teachers and offer insight into the minds of teenagers.
In ‘What Was That All About?’ the creative team offers readers the very best of ‘Zits!’ over the past 20 years and a very personal and up-front look at their own lives.
Readers will discover where the duo met, how they came up with the idea for ’Zits!’, the teenagers in their own lives, the strips publishing history, its up and downs and excerpts from their sketchbooks.
The deluxe hardbound book with die-cut front panel, spotlighting Jeremy, is a real treasure that ‘Zits!’ fans will love and cherish, from Andrews McMeel Publishing.
