Jones, Zig. Zig Jones was created by Dex Volney and appeared in five stories in Sea Stories from 1927 to 1929, beginning with “The Port Boiler” (Sea Stories, Mar. 1927).

Zig Jones is the first mate on the Steel Bobolink, and in that position gets into a variety of nautical adventures. Jones is a hot-tempered, roly-poly, bristly-whiskered man with a bald head and a number of scars from knives and broken bottles. His best friend is “Bolshevik” Sparks, the radio operator of the ship, a “pot-bellied, short-legged Jiji Islander struck with colic.”
