Book Review: My Bad: A Zits Treasury

Book Review: My Bad: A Zits Treasury

Zits is one of my favourite newspaper cartoons, right up there with Calvin and Hobbes. It's created by cartoonist Jim Borgman and writer Jerry Scott, who is also the creator of Baby Blues.

If you're a parent, this book is for you. This book is going to help you find out what your teenager is thinking, and how they think.

If you're a teenager, this jokes in the strips strike so close to home it's impossible not to laugh. For example, having high school fantasies about someone, arguing with parents on phone bills, sleeping (too) late, explaining why exam results are so bad, etc.

Every teenager and parent can relate to Zits. It's almost like a documentary, told in panels, to the point of déjà vu.

I've every Zits treasury, and will buy if there are more in the future.

It seems that with Jeremy and Mom: A Zits Retrospective You Should Definitely Buy for Your Mom and Pierced: A Zits Close-Up, and Lust and Other Uses for Spare Hormones: A Zits Look At Relationships, Andrews McMeel Publishing has stopped putting out the yearly sketchbooks, going for theme based books.

The treasuries are now the best way to get every single comic strip without duplication.

I absolutely hate comic strip duplication when buying a book of cartoons. It's really bad that some publishers don't mention anything about comic strip duplication and putting out these theme based books.
