About Buz Sawyer

Buz Sawyer was a popular comic strip created by Roy Crane, one of the innovators of the adventure comic strip. The strip, which originated in 1943 and ran in syndication until 1989, features the globe-spanning adventures of John Buz Sawyer. A chivalrous adventurer, Buz Sawyer was initially a fighter pilot for the U.S. Navy in the Pacific Theatre of World War II. When the war ended, Buz became a troubleshooter for an oil company. However, civilian life didnrsquot suit Buz Sawyer all that much, so he re-enlisted in the Navy as a jet pilot in the 1950s, leading to many exciting Cold-War adventures.
