Road trip. To many people this phrase means long hours cooped up with family in a car. In Zits: Shredded, by Jim Borgman and Jerry Scott for Jeremy Duncan, this phrase means freedom.
Road trip. To many people this phrase means long hours cooped up with family in a car. In Zits: Shredded, by Jim Borgman and Jerry Scott for Jeremy Duncan, this phrase means freedom. Jeremy and his friends Hector and Pierce have been planning a road trip since they first bought their van, and now the perfect opportunity has arisen for their dreams to finally come true. When Jeremy’s girlfriend Sara and her friends decide to fundraise to support Sunscreen for Freckled Children, and his friend Pierce finds a coupon for half off recording a song, they decide that they could make a record on vinyl to promote Sunscreen for Freckled Children. But to make a record, they have to travel all the way Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Road trip. There is only one thing stopping them. An excuse. They need a reason to leave, and fortunately, one comes around in the form of an orthodontist convention. His parents leave for the convention believing that Jeremy, Hector and Pierce are delivering a pilates machine to Jeremy’s grandma. Little do they know that they are actually driving cross-country to make a record and support Sunscreen for Freckled Children. True to form, Zits: Shredded loses none of the humor and sarcasm of the comics, and keeps the hilarious drawings as well.
Though Shredded comes after their first book, Zits: Chillax, it is not necessary to read Chillax first. Based on the comic strip Zits, Shredded is a novel that turns what could be one comic, into a fully blown out book.
