On 24th March 1984 Scream! hit the shelves of newsagents around the world. The fantastic stories within its pages had a generation of comic loving kids shaking in their shoes in a way they had never experienced before. Then, after only 15 issues, Scream! mysteriously ended. Rumours of strikes at IPC Magazines, the comic’s creators, could have been the cause. Declining comic sales in the UK another. Possibly the grizzly nature of Scream! caused hordes of desperate mothers to get the comic banned. Who knows? Maybe a darker mystery lies at the heart of this puzzle, a bizarre twist that no one has the answer to.
In 2001 backfromthedepths.co.uk was created to keep the memory of this much loved comic alive and to bring Scream fans together. Originally the site included a selection of the juiciest most horrible stories. Now, a recent update means you can read all 15 issues of Scream! online.
Scream survived as part of the Eagle masthead until March 85 then it was dropped for ever. Scream did emerge for 5 holiday specials. Check them out in the cover art section.
Visit the extensive Scream! gallery on Back from the Depths to read all 15 issues. You can also read the entire of The Thirteenth Floor and Monster as they appeared in Scream! along with a whole load of other creepy comic tales.
