Zits, by Jerry Scott

Jerry Scott was born in South Bend, Indiana. He started cartooning professionally in the mid-1970s by submitting gag cartoons to magazines, and he sold one from his first batch to the Saturday Evening Post. In 1983, he was asked to take over the 'Nancy' comic strip, originally by Ernie Bushmiller, which he continued to create for twelve years. In 1988, he got together with long-time friend Rick Kirkman and started kicking around ideas for a new strip.

The result was 'Baby Blues', which was first released by Creators Syndicate on January 7, 1990. King Features Syndicate now distributes the daily strip to 700 newspapers in 25 countries and fourteen languages. Scott created the 'Zits' comic strip in collaboration with cartoonist Jim Borgman. 'Zits' debuted in July, 1997 in more than 200 newspapers - one of the strongest strip introductions in years. Jerry, his wife, Kim, and their daughter live in California.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
