FIRST LOOK: a Stranger Things comic is coming

June 19th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Well, the Stranger Things train just keeps on rolling, doesn’t it?

First came the books news (here), then came the Tell Tale Game news and now… Dark Horse are bringing us a comic series and it’s going to fill a big missing chapter of the story so far: what happened Will when he was in the Upside Down?

Coming in September, Dark Horse President Mike Richardson had this to say: “Dark Horse is known for championing stories and storytellers. We are so excited to work with Netflix to bring the world of Stranger Things to comics.”

Check out a preview below, along with covers by Aleksi Briclot, Rafael Albuquerque, and Kyle Lambert.

The statement said it would be a multi-year deal (presumably a series each season?) and will explore the mystery of Hawkins, Indiana. It went on:

The first series in the line, launching this fall, will explore the adventures of Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) after he was transported to the horrific extra-dimensional Upside Down at the beginning of season 1. Viewers only saw Will reappear in that season’s finale when he was finally found by his mother Joyce (Winona Ryder), but obviously a lot happened in the interim. This four-issue Stranger Things miniseries — written by Jody Houser, illustrated by Stefano Martino, inked by Keith Champagne, colored by Lauren Affe, and lettered by Nate Piekos — will finally give fans a look at what happened to Will in the Upside Down.

Stranger Things #1 hits comic shops Sep. 26.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
