Indexer Notes

Continued in next issue. For five episodes the girls went on a nightmarish rollercoaster ride through virtually every horror cliché one could imagine. Hewetson stated that his goal was to write a horror story that nobody could figure out the ending to ahead of time. Then Scream was cancelled with a single episode left unpublished and fans would spend years wondering how Hewetson had planned {or even if he could have planned} to tie it all up. Finally, in the spring of 2004, British small press publisher John Gallagher of Chimera Arts, with the permission of the late Al Hewetson & artist Jesus Suso Rego, would publish the entire saga, including the previously unpublished 17 page final chapter {with Gallagher himself filling in a few missing panels}. Lo and behold, Hewetson & Suso had come up with an ending that actually worked... and fulfilled Hewetson’s desire to lead the reader down unfamiliar paths.
