Rebellion Publishing are to publish a limited edition hardback version of their first The Thirteenth Floor collection, out next month.
In this new Treasury of British Comics title featuring strips from Scream! by John Wagner, Alan Grant, with art by José Ortiz, Maxwell Tower is a state-of-the art tower block: a bold, experimental council tenement, run by an A.I. called Max. As building superintendent, Max’s primary function is the welfare of his tenants, a duty which he takes very very seriously.
If anyone threatens his precious residents or the building itself, they can expect a visit to the thirteenth floor… A place where nightmare and reality become one!
The iconic series from classic British anthologies Scream! and The Eagle returns in this terrifying collection, and of course Max also makes an appearance in The Vigilant, the new British superhero revival title also published by Rebellion.
While Scream! was a short-lived title, “The Thirteenth Floor” was easily its most popular strip, jumping to Eagle when the titles merged in 1984 along with “Monster“, also collected by Rebellion. Thanks to Max’s mysterious “Thirteenth Floor” which can conjure horrors to terrify even the toughest of men., the strip is a memorable one for British comic fans, with great art by Ortiz.
