Stranger Things comic book to debut at Comic-Con


The 48th Annual San Diego Comic-Con will take place this weekend and Stranger Things will be there.

Ever wonder what Will Byers from Stranger Things was thinking when the Demogorgon snatched him to whisk him away to the Upside Down? Well so did Dark Horse Comics.

That’s why they are bringing the first season of Stranger Things to comics.

More from Stranger Things

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Dark Horse Comics will preview its new four-issue miniseries at this week’s Comic-Con in San Diego. It will tell the first season from the point-of-view of young Will.

So, we can assume we will get to find out more about what went on in the Upside Down while Will’s friends, mom, and brother were looking for him in the… downside up.

Jody Houser wrote the comics and Stefano Martino, Keith Champagne, and Lauren Affe provided the artwork. While the fans at Comic-Con will get a glimpse, the series will debut on September 26.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the publisher’s official statement for the first issue is, “The nostalgia-igniting hit Netflix original series comes to comic shelves. Follow Will Byers into 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.”

The Hollywood Reporter was also able to reveal some pages from the first issue. Check them out; they’re pretty cool! I think the artist did a great job capturing Will’s looks. Will, of course, is played by Noah Schnapp. I think he deserved an Emmy nod this year.

If you happen to be at San Diego Comic-Con, you can meet Jody Houser, who will be signing autographs at the Dark Horse booth #2615 on Thursday and Saturday this weekend.

There is no word whether or not they will release more comics based on the hit Netflix series, but if this one is successful, maybe we’ll see more adventures from Will Byers.
