Yes, you read that right, loyal DE reader. No, it’s not an April Fool’s joke. I hate April Fool’s jokes, so I won’t pull your leg. Alas, it’s a fact. I, Phil Fasso, will make my return to Icons of Fright this month.
Given the rocky ending of my tenure there, I never thought I would say those words. But time—though it may not heal all—sometimes takes care of the bruises and scratches and machete wounds. Now that I’ve moved on to Death Ensemble and gone solo, it’s easy at a distance to appreciate my tenure at Icons of Fright, where I started off reviewing DVD’s, and eventually moved up to editor-in-chief. Yeah, things got a little ugly at the end, but Icons offered me my “in” as an internet horror blogger, and I wouldn’t have DE without my experience there. So I’m grateful the guys gave me a chance.
So I’ll be heading back over there this month, with at least one piece and maybe a few more. This doesn’t mean I’m abandoning DE. I’ve spent the last three years building it from scratch, and hopefully we’ll end up with some new loyal readers from our exposure at Icons. And just to tease the Icons of Fright audience, I’ve got a big announcement. I’m debuting the next Hell of Fame inductee on Icons.
Hey, I like making a big entrance, and so I’ll ride into Icons of Fright on the newest Hell of Famer’s broad, hairy shoulders.
I’m also making an offer to the Icons writers to write a piece for DE if they want. Reciprocating is only gentlemanly, and I am, after all, one Big Evil gentleman.
I’ll provide links to the articles as they appear on Icons. I just hope Icons is ready to Face the Slayer. Because Hell awaits their audience, and I’m bringing it.
