Great for laughs, especially if you have a teenager!

This is a very funny book about a very funny comic strip which is right up there with Calvin and Hobbes and Peanuts which is my favorite.

Format: Paperback
He is your son, your brother, your neighbor's kid, and your kid's best friend. He is Jeremy Duncan, the sullen star of the hit comic strip "Zits." In the third treasury, "Zits Supersized," Jeremy continues with the typical troubles of a teen -- clueless parents, a longing for freedom, hijinks with pal Hector, and a commitment-phobic girlfriend.

Living in the suburbs with his orthodontist dad Walt and child-shrink mom Connie, Jeremy longs for the wild, dangerous life of a rock star. Unfortunately, he's mired in a relatively quiet life. But even if he's not a rocker, Jeremy has plenty of excitement in his life -- he makes the mistake of sleeping nude on the roof, starts calling his dad "Walt," and gets a summer job digging koi ponds. If only he knew what a koi was.

A new guy arrives at school -- Pierce, who lives up to his name by having several pounds of metal sticking through various body parts. Jeremy makes the mistake of having an all-night horror-movie marathon... while his parents are out of the house. And Jeremy has a bad breakup, then encounters a beautiful orthodontist's daughter at a convention, but he still can't forget Sara.

Remember "Calvin and Hobbes," which so aptly showed the inner thoughts of a six-year-old? Fast forward about nine years, and Calvin has transformed into Jeremy Duncan. (Hobbes has turned into a stocky Hispanic teenager) With the same sort of whimsical realism, "Zits" appeals to all age groups by spoofing both teens and parents at once.

Jim Borgman and Jerry Scott (of "Baby Blues" fame) also add in the unedited "Good Night Dude" spoof of the classic kids' book. It's a few stanzas longer, with some wink-nudge naughty material ("And a picture of.../a girl with some big bazooms").

Format: Paperback
Zits is fast becoming a modern classic comic strip, and with good reason. It is consistently funny. The authors, Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman, use every humor tool available to them to get their point across. And, no matter whether it's exaggeration, sarcasm, understatement, or a hilarious sight gag, this book is sure to entertain.
The collection starts with the "director's cut" of "Good Night Dude." The original strip appears later in the collection, but here we get a full spoof of the classic picture book.
From there, we launch into the daily strip. This book contains strips from sketchbooks #5 and 6, "Unzipped" and "Busted." As an added bonus, the Sunday comics are in color. We get about a year and a half of strips all in one place. Not only do we get the latest on Jeremy and Sara's rocky relationship, but we get to see Jeremy and Hector start their own summer business for no fun and little profit. Pierce also joins the band this time around, with the most amazing intro to the most amazing drum solo you've ever heard. Along the way, gentle fun is poked at teens, parents, peers, and school equally.
Actually, the peers seem to have come into their own this go around. I don't remember enjoying Jeremy's friends from school so much. And Hector's put downs remind me of Hobbes from "Calvin and Hobbes." I especially loved his stuff from the week about the internet intelligence quiz.
Any teen or anyone living with a teen will love this strip. If you aren't careful, you might even starting laughing at yourself a little more.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on March 5, 2006
Format: Paperback
There are multiple problems with the Zits series, mainly pertaining to Jeremy's mother (I mentioned this in my review of Random Zits) but this edition gets it pretty well. However, both Big Honkin' Zits and Random Zits were better in terms of plot. Regardless, there are some funny strips here.

It has always been blatantly obvious that the situations in the strip were inspired by real teenagers somewhere, and here it doesn't get any better. Sadly, this treasury probably has the highest number of undoubtedly real situations. Despite that, there is not a total absence of plot. Another reviewer said that the buddies come into their own more this time. This is very true- Hector has some pretty awesome comebacks here (yes, even better than his ones during the Amber incident in the last book) and Pierce is introduced. Pierce would be better developed later, but I like to think of this book as the Last Stand of Tim, the one where quiet Tim Olsen left the scene in favor of Pierce for a while.

Anyway, not much else to say. Out of the four currently out (haven't gotten Crack of Noon yet), probably the third best. Not a good introduction like Big Honking Zits, or with the sheer comedic value of Random Zits, but a welcome addition to your collection.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection pales in comparison to the two earlier Zits' treasuries, and some of the jokes in this collection are duplicates of earlier strips with only minor changes. The Richandamy character has gotten extremely tired at this point in the strip, and Pierce isn't the most engaging of supporting characters.

As ever though, the strip hits close to home with its depiction of teen/parent relationships, and the biggest laughs come from Jeremy's mother's attempts to bond with her son.

Worth a read, but maybe not a reread.
