The Amazing Zitman!

Ahh, the Amazing Zitman……….

Well, the Zitman’s origins go back almost as far as WonderBrat’s… I created him when I was a kid, and he was inspired by my oldest brother Mike, who was known to have a zit or two in his day.

I became a “zitman” myself in my teens, but you can only have one zit-powered superhero per comic strip, as a general rule…

And since I brought back WonderBrat for Hamster Tails, it only made sense to bring back his good crime-fighting buddy.  And Zitman was too good a character to not use again!

He’s a little like Jimmy, in that he’s not the brightest bulb, but he means well.  In this webcomic, his alter-ego is the kids’ teacher, Mr. Whittle, who’s also loosely inspired by my brother Mike.

I’ve got some vintage Zitman cartoons in my desk that I’m sure I’ll pull out and display here at some point… stay tuned!

Want to BUY this cartoon to use on your website, newsletter, as an illustration for your book, or for any print or digital project you’re working? Just email me at

    I hope that dust has an antidote. Otherwise, every crook would get off scott free when the witness couldn’t identify them.

    Does this mean every teenager is zitman?

    Drewbie, I can honestly say I’ve never thought of that before….

    And Mr. Hoisington, I doubt it. But I know a few of us were!
