New STRANGER THINGS Comic To Tell The Story Of What Happened To Will in The Upside Down
Dark Horse Comics and Netflix are teaming up for a new Stranger Things comic book series. It will provide the opportunity to explore more of the mysterious world of Hawkins, Indiana, which is where the series takes place. Dark Horse President and Founder Mike Richardson had this to say in a statement:
"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."
One of the first stories that they will dive into is Will and what exactly happened to him in the Upside Down while everyone was trying to save him in the real world. This will tell us the story of his horrific adventure, which we didn't get to see in the first season of the series.
Stranger Things #1 follows Will Byers as he enters a dimension of decay and destruction where he must use his wits and resolve to dodge the pursuit of the Demogorgon and escape the Upside Down.
There are four issues in this story and they will be written by Award-winning writer Jody Houser (Faith, Orphan Black, Mother Panic). The art for the comic will be provided by penciller Stefano Martino (Legs Weaver, Nathan Never), inker Keith Champagne (JSA, Superboy), colorist Lauren Affe (Rebels, Five Ghosts), and letterer Nate Piekos (Briggs Land, Green Arrow).
Below you'll find some cover art from Aleksi Briclot (New Avengers, Maskemane) with three variant covers, one each from Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire, Blue Beetle), visual artist Kyle Lambert, and a photo-variant cover designed by Patrick Satterfield and Netflix.
Stranger Things #1 goes on sale September 26, 2018.
