Buz Sawyer by Roy Crane (0250-) 1st Appearance November 1st, 1943, 1st sunday November 28th, 1943 - Buz Sawyer was the strip Roy Crane created when he decided to switch syndicates in 1943 and leave behind Wash Tubbs and Captain Easy. Set in the Navy, the strip was adventurous and a delight but was never the visual triumph that Captain Easy was.   The Strip Debuted on November 1, 1943 with the Sunday feature starting November 28 of that same year. The star of the strip was Buz, but the more popular character was actually his rotund pal Roscoe Sweeney. In some papers in the 50’s Roscoe would actually share with title billing. Their escapades brought them wherever the navy would go and into the conflicts of the times.  The demand for Buz Sawyer is moderately strong probably due to the popularity of Roy Crane among collectors.  Early pages can be found in Tab or Half-size, but the strip was soon relegated to third-size in most papers. These thirds sell well only in the absence of available halfs.  Dailies have a loyal following as well.
