Billy Whizz

Billy Whizz is a comic strip in the long running UK comic theBeano. Billy Whizz, which started in 1964 (issue 1139, May 16th) as a replacement for The Country Cuzzins[?], was created by Malcolm Judge[?]. He had previously drawn Colonel Crackpot's Circus[?], but Whizz was a far more interesting and enduring creation.

Judge stopped drawing the strip in the late 1980s and has been replaced by various artists; primarily Vic Neill[?], but also Trevor Metcalfe[?] and David Parkins[?] (possibly!). The strip is currently drawn in a rather slapdash style by G. Hall[?]. It is about a boy who can run extremely fast. He has a younger brother called Alfie Whizz who has no unusual powers.
