Number 1196: A is for Airboy, Zz is for Zzed
Zzed was a villain who fought Airboy more than once. This story is Zzed's first appearance.Zzed is an immortal who has been around a couple of thousand years. He cannot die until the world ends, an event he's trying to bring about. That's pretty heavy stuff!
Ernie Schroeder drew the stories Zzed appeared in. I've shown a two-part story featuring this character, which appeared a few months after this issue. In the bass-ackwards way things work in this blog, they are in Pappy's #1120 and Pappy's #1121.
