Apologies if mentioned elsewhere, but Down The Tubes is reporting that kiddie horror comics Scream! and Misty will have a co-ed special published later this year, featuring new material from 2000ad alum.

There's a good talent line-up in there, and I hope they go for an all-ages audience as I wouldn't mind seeing this sell to a wider audience than... well, us.

This is the best comic related news I've heard all year.
I will be purchasing multiple copies as gifts for nephews & nieces.

"It’s fantastic – apart from Misty having a poor relation smaller logo," [ Mills ] noted in a social media post, his partner Lisa raising similar concerns in the same thread. "That’s a pity. I hope it doesn’t indicate that this is aimed primarily at blokes…"

…Or it might indicate that Henry didn't leave enough room for it, as he said on social media just this morning.

Wow!  :o

That cover is all kinds of amazing, and the contents sound pretty stunning too.

They should do a Scream/Minty edition.

Something to cater to that untapped 60-something disillusioned Judge and horror market.

Mmmm, is this just nostalgia?

A shame we couldn't get one of each rather than merging them.

Scream! is a better name and logo. It's probably not a misogynist conspiracy.
