Blong is the main character of the Wizzo comic. He started off in the comic in Issue 1 and has never missed out on an issue.


Blong was designed by Harry Rickard in early 2008 while he was on holiday, he was going to be in a comic made up by Harry called the Galaxy, this also featured Maddie Bout Money and Nora Penny, Chav (Without Jim ) and Zappy. Originally the Wizzo comic was going to be called the Hero comic, with Blong as the bad guy, this idea was then scrapped. Blong was always planned to be a silent comic and originally all Blong could say was bad language, all the words appearing in funny pictures signs. However this idea to was soon scrapped as well. In January 2010, Hannes drew Blong as a dog, it was then decided that this should be Blong's pet dog. Many names were suggested, the final name being Rover. At one point in the comic, Dan Riley decided there should be a narrator, however it didn't prove to be very popular and after only one comic strip, it was changed back to normal. Wizzo fans, James Hamilton and Chay Whiston designed their own Blong stories which were then redrawn by Harry Rickard and were to be put in another Issue.


Blong has a notable, big nose and beady eyes. Harry believes that he is "probably one of the most easiest characters to draw", although according to others, he's very hard to draw. Blong's outfit has notably changed throughout the months. At first he wore a long-sleeved green shirt and had brown trousers on. But soon after he changed to a red long-sleeved shirt and wore blue jeans. Hannes then changed his look in a comic strip he'd done, giving Blong a short-sleeved blue t-shirt with a red stripe down one side of it and the same blue jeans. Harry liking the look a lot more than his current look, decided to change him to Hannes's style. As a joke, Harry designed a new, nerdy-looing Blong, giving him a bowlcut, massive eyes, massive teeth, a nostril, some freckles and an ear, He then also changed his clothing to a blue shirt with black trousers with braces. It was then changed back, another time his appearance changed rapidly was when Kieren Gillespie was drawing a Blong Halloween story, he wanted to make Blong look different, giving him circular, beady eyes, small spikes of hair, an ear and odd-looking muscles. Harry not liking the look reverted him back to normal, since then he has stayed the same.
