PART TWO OF SCREAM! COVER GALLERY...
Welcome to part two of our SCREAM! cover gallery. As
revealed in part one, Scream! lasted for 15 issues before being
cancelled due to an industrial strike. The comic contained such
stories as The DRACULA FILES, The NIGHTCOMERS, The
THIRTEENTH FLOOR, TALES From The GRAVE, LIBRARY
Of DEATH (a different tale every week), FIENDS And NEIGH-
BOURS (a humour strip, looks like a reprint), MONSTER, and
A GHASTLY TALE (again, a different tale every issue).
IPC decided that, after eight weeks of absence from news-
agents due to the printers' strike, the title had lost momentum
and wasn't worth continuing. However, given the immense cost
of launching a comic, this suggests that the sales figures had been
less than encouraging. Had it been a runaway hit, it would surely
have been kept going. After all, nobody cancels a sure-fire
Another part still to come, chums! Be sure not to miss it -
on this, the absolutely best blog in the history of best blogs
that most people have never heard of!
