Scream they last Scream
This is a poster that you had to collect from the 1980s comic, Scream. I have had this wrapped up and hidden away. I’ve only recently dug it out. I did a little internet research on the comic and discovered a few interesting facts about its heritage.
It was published by ( low and behold ) IPC in 1985, and was published in the good old Kings Reach Tower. The comic only lasted 15 issues and a few websites claim various reasons for its short life. One being down to its grizzly nature and another, blaming the 1980s writers/publishing strikes. However, a few of its characters survived and lived on in the re-vamped Eagle. It’s a similar story, and dare I say it, to the Wickerman film.
