In the comic world, 2002 is the year of Jerry Scott.
The cartoonist has just received the Swedish Academy of Comic Art’s Adamson Statuette as “Best International Comic-Strip Artist” for his work on “Baby Blues,” which Scott co-creates with Rick Kirkman.
Scott, who also co-creates the “Zits” strip with Jim Borgman, previously won the National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben Award as “Cartoonist of the Year” this spring.
“Zits” this year reached the 1,000-client mark, while “Baby Blues” runs in nearly 800 newspapers. Both comics are distributed by King Features Syndicate.
