Even though the Halloween game poster came free with Eagle #238 (11th October 1986), it will be of interest to those familiar with IPC's 'Scream' comic from 1984. After Scream's last issue #15, the comic then merged with 'Eagle' for a number of issues.'Scream' readers will probally recognise artwork from the Halloween poster here which came from issues of Scream. Those that I can make out include images from The Thirteenth Floor [Grim Reaper],Library of death ['At death's door','Spiders can't scream' and 'Ghost Dance'],Monster [house from isssue 6 and Zombies from issue 7], The Nightcomers [Issue 9], Cover of issue 9 [Skeleton Bride], The Dracula File and last but not least Ghastly McNasty. The cover of Eagle #238 uses images from the back cover of Scream #9. The next 4 issues of Eagle would contain free cards [2 of which are featured below] that can be used with the Halloween game poster and for another 2 games.
