‘It’s Ghastly’ The untimely demise of Scream!

by Ghastly McNasty

An absolute must for Scream! fans:

Scream! comic appeared on the newsagents shelves for just 15 issues in 1984 but managed to leave a fearsome reputation behind.

Featuring the work of, to name a few, John Wagner, Alan Grant, Simon Furman, Alan Moore, José Ortiz, Eric Bradbury Brendan McCarthy, Scream’s sudden disappearance from the newsagents led to rumours of it being removed because of parents complaints, or being the victim of a strike.
‘Its Ghastly’ delves into the murky world of Scream with contributions from all of its editors, Barrie Tomlinson, Ian Rimmer and Simon Furman to uncover the truth of its demise.

Scream’s six Holiday Specials come under scrutiny and uncovers the origins of such stories as ‘Black Beth’ and Dave Gibbons ‘The Nightcomer’ and also included is a cover recreation to issue 16, and the actual covers to 17,18, and 19.
The highlight is a complete 16 page Nightcomer’s tale that was due to start probably in issue 18 of Scream! but lay unpublished until now. Join Rick and Beth for one last supernatural adventure by Simon Furman and José Gonzales and much more in ‘Its Ghastly’, the ultimate Scream companion.

64 pages (10 in colour)

You can purchase this glorious tome from Hibernia Press.
