Today’s Guest: Jerry Scott, Jim Borgman, Rick Kirkman, comic strip co-creators, “Zits,” “Baby Blues”
Not too surprisingly, when my son Charlie was born, it didn’t take long for me to see the humor in the “Baby Blues” comic strip by Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott.
It was so relatable!
And when Charlie hit 6 or 7, he started reading it himself and thought it was hysterical. He was sooo cute then!
What? You’re interrupting my introduction!
CHARLIE: Yeah, well, you’re embarrassing me! AGAIN!
Here’s a plotline I’ve never seen in a comic strip: Dad invites son to co-host his international, hit podcast and all he does is whine!
CHARLIE: You’re hardly an international hit! I don’t even think Mrs. Logan knows about this show and she knows everything about us!
Thanks kid. Do you mind if I continue?
CHARLIE: If you must… Actually, let me finish, okay?
CHARLIE: My Dad’s right about one thing – I really do like “Baby Blues.” And one of my other favorite strips is “Zits,” which I found out is written by the same man who writes “Baby Blues,” Jerry Scott. He and artist Jim Borgman produce the daily adventures of Jeremy, his parents, and Jeremy’s best friends Hector and Pierce.
We’re really excited to welcome to Mr. Media all three creators of these two strips – artists Rick Kirkman and Jim Borgman and writer Jerry Scott.
