    Max has a fault, but it means he can create a thirteenth floor at Maxwell Towers, where anything he thinks of, can happen.

    Anyone that threatens his tenants, or him, gets sent there. To learn the error of their ways or die. It's all the same to Max, who justifies all of the deaths for the good of his tenants.

    Written by John Wagner and Alan Grant (using the pseudonym 'Ian Holland'), the Thirteenth Floor ran in all 15 issues of Scream! before transfering to Eagle (from issue 128) and running continuously until issue 258 (a total of 146 episodes).

    Jose Ortiz was the main series artist from start to finish, however, the three one-off stories in the annuals and specials were scripted and illustrated by different creative teams - the artists are known, but not the writer (or writers).
