SCREAM! COVER GALLERY - PART ONE...
The first issue of SCREAM! hit newsagents' shelves in
Britain on Saturday, March 17th (dated 24th) 1984. Hard for
me to believe that was over 30 years ago, but then, when I think
how my home town has changed in that period, it seems like a life-
time away. However, you're not here to read about that, I'm sure.
Contrary to popular misconception, Scream! was discontinued after
a mere 15 issues because of an industrial strike by printers, and not
because of complaints from concerned parents about the alleged
'horrific' content. The name was later added to the masthead of
EAGLE weekly and there were 5 Summer Specials to con-
tinue the legend of one of Britain's shortest-lived and
Here, then, is the first part of a gallery of Scream!
covers for you to salivate and swoon over. Enjoy!
(Incidentally, the six back pages combine into one large
poster. Why not print them out and put them together?)
