World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 5
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 5 features:
Jasper the Grasper, Victorian-styled, pound-pinching miser from the pages of Cor!!;
Sweeny Toddler, the demon baby, spawn of Shiver and Shake, later to terrorise the pages of Whoopee! and Whizzer and Chips;
Angus McScrimp, another tightwad – this time the Scottish uncle of orphan Jeannie Jackson, from Sandie;
Jed and Gert,another evil uncle and aunt (genuinely, these characters were drawn together at random), this time of orphan and talented gymnast Bella Barlow, from Tammy.
