Skywald's SCREAM #1 according to Al Hewetson’s introduction, was in response to readers’ opinions as
expressed in the Bunch Of Questions survey and was first published as a black-and-white comic magazine
in August 1973. If you're brave enough take a peek, we’ve got 'The Strange Painting Of Jay Crumb'
a spoof on underground cartoonists Jay Lynch & Robert Crumb by Felipe de la Rosa.
'The Comics Macabre' by Al Hewetson and Maelo Cintron featured characters based on ‘Seduction Of The
Innocent’ author Fredric Wertham & Comics Code Authority president Len Darvin as well as Hewetson,
Herschel Waldman & other Skywald staffers. In the story Darvin and Wertham visit the Skywald offices to
complain about the horror comics, get into an argument and kill Hewetson, whereupon tiny versions of
Skywald’s Heap, Frankenstein’s Monster and others come off comic pages and kill Wertham and Darvin.
Hewetson sent a copy of the story to Wertham, with whom he corresponded for a number of years but,
according to Hewetson, Wertham didn’t get the point. Don’t hang around - these horror’s will be gone by
