FEBRUARY FANTASY MONTH I’ve toyed with the notion of writing a fantasy short story from time-to-time but as yet haven’t produced one. I’m curious what readers of this site would like to see my protagonist pitted against. I’m sidelining Dragons for this poll as they are already so well-represented in countless other tales. Below is […]Read More FANTASY CREATURE POLL
With Halloween just days away, it’s time to close the voting for Horror Delve’s Scariest Obscure Supervillain Poll. My own choice would have been for Belarac Marcosa from the classic Werewolf By Night run. I was also a big fan of The Dweller-In-Darkness manipulating his Fear Lords agains Doctor Strange. Rom the Spaceknight’s encounter against […]Read More THE SCARIEST OBSCURE MARVEL SUPER VILLAIN POLL RESULTS

The poll for your favorite COBRA agent is now closed. Nine different candidates received votes but there can only be one winner. In this case, Destro edged out Storm Shadow and Zartan to take the prize. A few brief thoughts about the top three vote getters: DESTRO: He was always my personal favorite ever since […]Read More DESTRO WINS!
As a child, I was a huge G.I. Joe fan. I collected the action figures, watched the cartoons and read the comics (which were excellent, by the way). As with most properties, I tend to find myself drawn to the villains more often than the heroes. So, I’d be interested in which of the bad […]Read More CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE COBRA AGENT
A total of 139 votes were cast over the last few weeks for favorite vintage horror writer from a pre-selected list of ten, and the winner is… ALGERNON BLACKWOOD! It was a close fight between him and M.R. James with the lead teetering back-and forth a few times before Algernon ultimately won out. Look for […]Read More AND THE WINNER IS…
