I thought this news deserved its own topic, rather than being hidden in the Rebellion thread. Scream and Misty return for Halloween in a combined special one-off. Even better, it'll contain all-new stories!

You can see more info and the cover here:

Fascinating! I wonder if this is the first time in British comics history that a Girls' comic has combined with a Boys' comic?

There was the 'Smash! Pow!It's Fantastic! Summer Special' published in 1968.

There was Smash! and Pow! incorporating Fantastic for several weeks in 1968, and I seem to remember that Egmont's Thunderbirds, Stingray, and Captain Scarlet (or Joe 90) merged into one mouthful of a title in the 1990s.

Considering this special features Black Max, perhaps it should have been called Scream! and Misty incorporating Thunder. :lol:

I can't wait. It's the next best thing to a new regular comic. :D

I'm also glad Rebellion will be including a strip from Thunder - a very underappreciated comic in the 70s, especially how it reshaped Lion after the merger.

Now will the strips be faithful to their originals or will they be revamps like what was done with the 2000AD Action Special? I think it will be the former which I would prefer.

what was the 2000ad action special? i didn't know it was old characters i thought it was 2000ad characters.and why didn't it work that time as rebellion must have had ideas back when this was released.

Hi, bri.

From memory, back in the 80s, IPC (who was running the show) released two Action Specials.

First was the Classic Action Special which featured all new stories of classic characters from the likes of Lion and Valiant (e.g. Kelly's Eye).

Then they released a 2000AD Action Special where those classic characters were re-imagined (for instance Tim Kelly's stone had grown and was grafted into his chest).

I don't know if IPC had an agenda. I do know that I didn't like what they did to the characters in the 2000AD Action Special and maybe that was the reaction in general?

The only thing to come out of it was that the re-imagined Tim Kelly went on and joined the Universal Soldier series in 2000AD.

I wonder if the follow up to The Sentinels will be a complete story (a few pages) or something in a mini-serial length?

I think I wrote an article for that special but I've misplaced my copy.

I wasn't too keen on the updated, darker, characters either, as I recall.
