FIZOG was a modern children’s comic created, written and designed by Dean Wilkinson who had previously been editor of Acne comic in 1982.
Fizog comic was financed by Wilkinson and artists Lee Healey and Mervyn Johnston in 1994 and lasted 3 issues. The humour was typically English and Python-esque – dark, surreal and often blood thirsty and violent. It was distributed nationally and was sold in WH Smiths and Menzies, also in Australia. It was building up a steady fan-base until a world paper shortage caused printing costs to sky-rocket and financially cripple the magazine.

As well as writing for the children’s television shows ‘Bad Penny’ and ‘Stupid’, Dean is also a novelist having written the ‘Arthur King’ books.
