World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 14
Dare to gaze upon the most notorious villains, creeps, bullies, monsters, ghosts and ghouls to darken the pages of IPC’s comics of the 1970s and 1980s. On my Twitter pages I’m running a World Cup series of polls to determine who is the nastiest of them all, so pop over there to vote – and I’ll post a picture of each of them here on the blog to remind you of who’s who.
There are 64 baddies in total, divided at random into 16 groups of 4. The winner of each group progresses into Round 2, and I hope we’ll discover the Baddest of Bads sometime in the New Year!
Group 14 features:
DR & Quinch, like totally unfairly listed here amongst all these nutjobs and ne’er-do-wells, man. S’right.
The Really-Ghastly family, a darkly British spin on The Addams Family, this popular Fiends and Neighbours strip featured Mr and Mrs Really-Ghastly and their offspring Bella and ‘Orrid, and ran in Cor!! and Buster and was later reprinted in Scream!
The Traitor General, focus of Rogue Trooper’s lonely quest in the earliest days of this classic 2000AD serial, the General was responsible for the massacre of Rogue’s GI buddies;
Evil Eye, the mysterious floating eyeball represented something scarily accurate about human nature, as one zap from Eye would bring our very worst instincts to the fore.
Who's the most despicable? Go to @GNFARcomics on Twitter and you decide! #WorldCupOfBaddies
