From a reader:
Is the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth a reference to Dr. Strange? I cannot EVER remember hearing or reading the word ‘hoary’ unless it was either said by him or in one of his comix.
If it WAS a comic-book reference, you are perhaps the ‘most courageous human being on the face of the earth’, to paraphrase-quote Lionel Hutz, esq.
Have a good day and for pete’s sake, keep up the fine work!
Me: Well, By the Ruby Rings of Raggadorr! and by the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak! of course it’s from Dr. Strange.
Question: Could you introduce a character like Dr. Strange — who dresses like that, talks that way, sports a young Asian man-servant and has a really fabulous mustache — and have anyone believe he wasn’t gay? I mean — By the Mystic Moons of Munnopor! — would anyone even try?
Update: Right. Forgot to mention this, from a reader:
Don’t forget – his Sanctum Sanctorum was located in Greenwich Village. Make of that what you will.
