Who doesn’t LOVE Stranger things? a comic was the next logical step for this phenomenon of a programme to cross into.

When I read about a stranger things comic I initially thought that it would be just the programme written down like the Walking Dead comics which of course would have been awesome but this is a little different it’s like a filler for the story that complements the tv show.

In the show we see Will disappear and then follow the story mainly from his mums and friends vantage points but this comic fills in the gals from wills perspective as he deals with being in the upside-down alongside the Demogorgon which is really cool. As the story unfolds we get Wills version of events that coincide with what we saw on the tv show so it’s really cool to read and a brilliant idea. I loved finally getting to experience Wills side of the story and it will be really interesting to see how the rest of his time in the upside-down play out.

The artwork matches the creepiness of the show perfectly and the urgency of Wills situation comes cross clearly and beautifully. An awesome looking comic.

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
