Fondly remembered from the 70s, classic British comics Misty and Scream! have been stitched together and reanimated just in time for Halloween with all new stories designed to shock and scare from some of the UK’s brightest talents appearing in this special edition one-shot.
Max the crazy computer makes a welcome return in The Thirteenth Floor by Guy Adams, John Stokes and Frazer Irving; the fangs are out in The Dracula Fileby Grainne McEntee and Tristan Jones; weirdos, warriors and weasels plucked from the pages of various 70s and 80s British comics congregate in Death-Man: The Gathering by Henry Flint; Kek-W and Simon Coleby collaborate on Black Max, the German WWI fighter pilot that’s descended from a race of bat-people; the high-rise horrors of Birdwood are back in Return of the Sentinelsby Hannah Berry and Ben Willsher; and fairies can be frightening in Fate of the Fairy Hunter by Alec Worley and DaNi.
And, if you’re able to snatch up the variant cover by Glenn Fabry, do be reminded that both Fabry and Frazer Irving, who illustrates The Thirteenth Floor strip, will be on hand to sign your spooktacular copy this coming Saturday the 21st of October at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in that there fancy London Town from 1pm.
The Scream! & Misty Special is out now in both the UK and the USA from 2000AD, although I imagine you’ll have to wait a bit, my American chums, for your floppy copies.
