Book Description

Oct. 19 2010 Zits Sketchbook (Book 13)
From hormones to how-come-I’m-not-like-everyone-else questions and insecurities, Borgman and Scott continue to successfully tell teenage horror stories since the strips debut in newspapers in 1997. Readers and fans can find Zits in 1,600 newspapers worldwide, an achievement only 18 comic strips have ever earned.

Lauded by the Los Angeles Times "as one of the freshest and most imaginative comic strips" and designated as Best Newspaper Comic Strip twice by the National Cartoonists Society, Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman's Zits chronicles many of the scenes that play out under the rooftops of more than 80.5 million homes across the country.

Artfully exploring insecurities, societal pressures, and just plain teenage goofiness, Scott and Borgman contrast the experiences of adolescence and parenthood. Sixteen-year-old Jeremy Duncan is learning to navigate residential byways and high school hallways while the parentals, a.k.a. Connie and Walt Duncan, try to keep pace and find a little peace.

Jim Borgman is AMAZING!!! You can NOT read this book in silence. It is a "Laugh Out Loud" event, as all of his books are. I have purchased all of his books to give to my grand kids {who are now in their early 20's} but I always end up buying doubles, as I have been keeping these for my own enjoyment, OVER AND OVER!!! Honestly!! I kid you not. I have lent out some of these to friends to read, and they are now also buying the "Zits" books to pass on {or to keep for themselves}.

By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
YOU'RE MAKING THAT FACE AGAIN is the 13th "Zits" Sketchbook featuring the lovable Duncan clan: Dad Walter, Mom Connie, and their crazy teenage son Jeremy. The strips featured in the book ran in newspapers from July 2008-April 2009. "Zits" is more of a gag-a-day strip, but it does occasional feature a short running story or a weeklong themed strip. A few of the stories in the book include Jeremy and Becker dating, Walt fixing the Internet, Jeremy getting a math tutor, Jeremy and his mom painting his bedroom, and a week where Walt and Jeremy are left alone as Connie visits her sister. Some of the themed strips include the Field Guide for Encountering the Teenager in Its Natural Habitat, Field Guide for Encountering the Grownup in Its Natural Habitat, 101 Things You Should Do Before You're 16, and Usually Means. YOU'RE MAKING THAT FACE AGAIN is a good range of comics of what "Zits" does best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh until your sides hurt! March 4 2011
By Mr. Dana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Zits is my new favorite, since Fox Trot stopped making daily strips. The hilarity comes in all forms, from subtle adolescent references, to laugh out-loud silliness, all which bring back some memory from our own adolescence! Jeremy is your typical male teenager, who manages to occasionally bring home an essence of a lesson hidden within the humor, without being "preachy" about it. Each day brings some new humous event, and this book brings them all together in one portable package!

However, from now on, I think I will opt for the larger "Treasury" books, as they contain more comics(usually from the previous two "Sketchbooks"), which seems to make more economical sense to me, plus the fact that your reading enjoyment is extended. It only took me couple of night of browsing to finish this little treasure. In my view, the more comics, the better, the bigger the book, all the better.

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS Jan. 7 2011
By A&D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This cartoon book will make you laugh, laugh, laugh! It's so funny! the authors and illustrators do know how the teenagers and their parents interact,what problems there are and how funny situations there can be.

This book starts with the difficulties of teenagers getting up... It's Saturday, no matter how much noise you make you can't get your teenage son to wake up. Then suddenly, he wakes up and is looking for food!

And when the teenager is missing for 5 hours at a time you start wondering where he is, is he in trouble or brooding over something... and when you go to find out where he is, he has been taking a shower for the past 5 hours!

Teenagers in love is another popular theme in this book. How they don't talk, just stare and how the other people react to their love around them.
5.0 out of 5 stars Enthusiastically recommended for anyone who needs a bit of humor to help cope with changing times Dec 13 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
You're Making That Face Again is the thirteenth collection of "Zits" newspaper comic strips, mostly in black-and-white but with color for the Sunday strips. The jokes center on coping with life as a teenager with overbearing parents - or as parents with an overbearing teenaged son; both sides of the dilemma are thoroughly explored! The manner in which modern technology (especially texting and camera phones) continues to shape human interaction further enhances the fodder for side-splitting gags. "'Okay, I forgot your birthday. What's the big deal?' 'I'm your mother, Jeremy! Show me a little respect!' 'Okay. Welcome to the top 100 on my speed dial list.' 'Show me a little more.'" You're Making That Face Again is a breath of fresh laughter, an excellent giftbook, and enthusiastically recommended for anyone who needs a bit of humor to help cope with changing times.
