Pulitzer Prize winner Jim Borgman is among the most respected cartoonists in America. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Borgman graduated summa cum laude from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he is known to the community for his tenure as staff artist and editorial cartoonist for the Kenyon Collegian from 1974 to 1976. On the basis of his college cartoons, The Cincinnati Enquirer hired him in 1976 to begin work immediately following his graduation. His editorial cartoons were syndicated by King Features between 1980 and 2007, and by Universal Press Syndicate since 2007.

His first comic was the weekly feature 'Wonk City', that ran from 1994 to 1996 in The Washington Post. He created his first comic strip 'Zits', about sixteen-year-old Jeremy Duncan, in collaboration with cartoonist Jerry Scott, who also scripts 'Baby Blues'. 'Zits' debuted in July 1997 in more than 200 newspapers - one of the strongest comic strip introductions in years. King Features now distributes 'Zits' to about 1500 newspapers worldwide.
