2000AD Thrill-Cast celebrates Scream!

A new episode of the 2000AD Thrill-Cast dropped recently, celebrating the disinterment of Scream!, the creepy – if short-lived – IPC comic from back in the mists of time. The horror title’s 40th anniversary is being marked with the release of 40 Years of Scream!, a massive 464-page collection of strips, on 22nd May.

The Thrillcast team dug up editor Ian Rimmer, sub-editor and writer Simon Furman, and SFX editor and Scream! reader Darren Scott to talk about the history of the short-lived title and its enduring influence, “and waffle on we did”, says Simon.
