I have also reread The Fear Machine and The Family Man relatively recently so that leaves only the Golden Boy storyline from Delano's run. I am now rereading Garth Ennis' opening storyline, Dangerous Habits. Those were the days when a lot of monthly comics were of consistently high quality in writing and visuals.
Delano's high points:
Vietnamerica - prayers bring the dead soldiers back and they attack their home town;
the demon Nergal wonders, "Why is it always the most primitive, stupid zones that are strategically important. Earth is such a provoking place...";
a prophecy is engraved on a stone dredged up from Hell!;
Ritchie tries to get back in his body after it has spontaneously combusted!
