Zay Escobar, commonly abbreviated to ZE, is an ongoing web comic created by Mr.Zaya. Created back in 2013, It records the exploits and antics of the eponymous character, Zion "Zay" Escobar, and his two best friends Shabba Clay and Vic Shiggy. The series is set in fictional Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Zay Escobar was born out of an inside joke and over time the comic would begin to take itself more seriously to the point where the universe they belong to is continuously being expanded upon to this day.
Team Escobar, the collective name of ZE's writers, cite several other forms of media as inspiration for the comics which helped them shape it. The creator Mr.Zaya often refers to Cyanide and Happiness as well as South Park.
Main article: List of Zay Escobar Characters
Zay is the main character, the man with the plan, and the leader de facto of Escogang. He is the quarterback of the Darien Condors football team, and his love for sports is deep rooted. A passionate Packers fan made him what he is today. His two best friends are Shabba and Vic.
Shabba is Zay's right-hand man. He's made a great name for himself by always having a laid-back, cool disposition. He is another of the three central (Escogang) characters, however Shabba has switched roles between himself, Zay and Vic as an installment's primary focus.
Vic Shiggy is what completes the Zay Escobar trio of main characters. He is the oldest brother of Varnius and Victoria, and although he should be a model for them, Vic finds himself in quagmires with Zay and Shabba both, usually unwittingly.
