Archive's Sunday Comics - and now the screaming starts

In 1984 a new comic was launched by IPC home of the mega successful 2000AD. In fact Scream was modeled on 2000AD, but instead of being SF based it would concentrate on the horror genre. There were only 15 issues  published before the title was canceled due to a combination of controversy over its horror content, and production strikes at IPC. The cancellation was at such short notice that the final issue's strips contained previews for the next installment.  

Scream! was absorbed by Eagle.

It's a pity the comic was so short lived and in memory of this great title we present a strip from the title's anthology series of stand alone stories collected together under the title, Tales from the Grave. Remember you can click on any image for a larger version and the entire 15 issue run can be read online HERE
