World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 7

World Cup of Baddies: Round 1, Group 7

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 7 features:

Tom Thug, juvenile hooligan from Oink! and Buster;

Joe Darkie, from Battle – his personal war against the Japanese pushed his squadron further than they could take, but did his backstory justify his means?;

The Innkeeper of Scream Inn in Shiver and Shake and then Whoopee!, who each week welcomed a brave guest to his horrific hostelry with creepy glee;

Nelson Bunker Kreelman, father of Strontium Dog Johnny Alpha and leader of an attempted extermination of Britain’s mutant community.

Who's the most despicable? Go to @GNFARcomics on Twitter and you decide! #WorldCupOfBaddies
