'Zits' Character Looks Like Late King Editor Jay Kennedy

By: E&P Staff "Zits" paid tribute to late King Features Syndicate Editor in Chief Jay Kennedy by recently picturing him as the blond-haired manager of a movie-theater concession stand at which the Pierce character works.

The "Zits" comic is by Jim Borgman and Jerry Scott of King. Another King cartoonist, "Rhymes With Orange" creator Hilary Price, tipped off E&P to the Kennedy resemblance, which she confirmed with Borgman.

Kennedy died March 15 in a drowning accident at the age of 50.

The strips showing the Kennedy-like character can be seen here and here.
