AAIIEEE!!! It's a new horror comic from Dave Candish and Matthew McLaughlin!

Aaiieee Issue 1
Inspired by their love of the 1970s magazine Tomb of Dracula and 1980s comics Scream and Misty, Paragon editor Dave Candlish and Matthew McLaughlin – creator of El Bigote, the undead Mexican bandit – combine to bring a new indie horror anthology comic to life – AAIIEEE!!!

Offering 36 pages of creepy tales including The Major by Tom Proudfoot and George Colman (left) and a host of other short stories to chill your bones, the first issue includes an exclusive interview with Ghastly McNasty himself – the editor of Scream comic Ian Rimmer, telling the story behind the production (and demise) of the short-lived comic that included stories from the likes of Alan Moore and Simon Furman.

Launching on Hallowe'en (when else?), AAIIEEE!!! will be available to order in print or download from
