Netflix & Dark Horse announce Stranger Things comic books

It was only a matter of time before Netflix's STRANGER THINGS became a comic book series and today we have confirmation via EW that Dark Horse and Netflix have joined forces to bring us just that. The first series will launch this fall and explore just what the hell happened to little Will Byers when he was trapped in the Upside Down during season one. 

The four-issue miniseries is written by Jody Houser, illustrated by Stefano Martino, inked by Keith Champagne, colored by Lauren Affe, and lettered by Nate Piekos. This partnership is set to consist of "a multi-year publishing line" that will give Stranger Things fans "an opportunity to explore the mysterious world of Hawkins, Indiana," according to Dark Horse. 

Dark Horse President Mike Richardson:

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.

Stranger Things #1 hits comic shops September 26th and today you can check out an early preview below, along with covers by Aleksi Briclot, Rafael Albuquerque, and Kyle Lambert. I guess I'm excited to read this new series. Mostly I'm 'meh' on this particular storyline, but once they start putting out mini-series based on Dustin and Dart, or Dustin and Steve, or Steve and Nancy, I'm going to be all over those. This comic idea could really open up the series for even more fun on the off seasons. Let's hope so!
