Privatisation has never been so deadly – the homicidal computer Max returns in the second collection of The Thirteenth Floor, featuring never-before-reprinted classic horror comics! Max is being packed off to the private sector in the second volume of The Thirteenth Floor – one of the most iconic comics of the 1980s! Perhaps the most fondly remembered of all the strips to originate in the short-lived British horror weekly Scream!, The Thirteenth Floor was created by John Wagner and Alan Grant, with spookily atmospheric art from José Ortiz. Max is an artificial intelligence created to be superintendent of council tower block Maxwell Tower. Max was determined to make sure that all of his tenants were safe and happy – even if it meant sending humans he didn’t like to his thirteenth floor – a nightmarish virtual world where their worst dreams became a fitting punishment, whether it was zombies, giant cockroaches, medieval executioners, or sharks! But, after being exposed as a homicidal killer, Max the computer has been shut down and removed from Maxwell Tower – but the unscrupulous council has sold the computer to fancy Oxford Street department store, Pringles. Now, Max has a new hunting ground and a whole host of potential ‘victims’, including shop-lifters, obnoxious customers and even secret agents!Available in print from: book stores, Amazon, and UK comic book stores via Diamond
