It seems that Eleven was a bit of a success story compared to some unfortunate others.

Marcy and Ricky are trying to stay low and blend in while also trying to hunt down any others that have survived and escaped the program and try to help them in any way they can. Unfortunately for Marcy, this means that at the drop of a hat she has to leave her friends just as she was beginning to fit in. Ricky clearly cares for Marcy and looks to want to help care for any others with powers that he can but with stranger things not everything is as it seems.

Its good to see 8 again looking as badass as ever with a bombshell that rocks Marcy’s world. It looks like it was Marcy’s twin that got all the power but I think if pushed hard enough Marcy could develop powers just when she needs them and if her sister’s power has 8 scared then hers could be just as powerful.

I really like how this has kept the feel of the tv programme while still exploring completely different aspects of the problems faced by the test subjects in the outside world!

About Martin Cameron

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
