As tensions rise and fractures begin to form in the group, a new kid shows up to AV club with a Betamax Camcorder and an idea. The new Spielberg-wannabe friend, Joey Kim, wants to make a horror movie about a local legend, but when he sees Will's drawings, he discovers that his new friends are local legends.Written by best-selling author Greg Pak (Mech Cadet Yu, The Incredible Hulk, Star Wars: Age of Rebellion) and drawn by Valeria Favoccia (Assassin Creed: Reflections, Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor).

Stranger Things Review

    A very simplistic comic taking place between seasons 1 and 2 of the show. The entire plot is Will being mopey while the boys make a horror movie. This felt like it was geared towards younger readers. I've read 2 of these Stranger Things comics now and they both felt very limited in scope, never giving me what I want. I want to see the boys investigating stranger things, not doing inane, boring things.Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss.

    This little tale takes place between season 1 & season 2, Will Byers is still recovering from what happened to him in the Underworld. The kids on his school behave like schoolkids do and are awful. The club gets a new kid with the latest video-camera and they all decide on making a horror movie and they decide on the subject Zombies. The making of the movie proves to be a healthy way for the boys and girl to get rid of their negative feelings. Not quite up to the series standard but This little tale takes place between season 1 & season 2, Will Byers is still recovering from what happened to him in the Underworld.

The making of the movie proves to be a healthy way for the boys and girl to get rid of their negative feelings. Not quite up to the series standard but enjoyable nonetheless it feels like it is aimed at the younger generation watching the popular series "Stranger Things".

    "My name is Will Byers. I live in Hawkins, Indiana. I'm twelve years old. I like drawing and D&D and hanging out with my friends...but last year...last year...things got bad."

    This is quick, fun romp with our favorite male protagonists set between season 1 & 2. My only complaint is... where is Joey in season 2 & 3?

    I would like to thank Edelweiss and the publisher for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review. I have been a fan of the show Stranger Things ever since it came out and as soon as I saw this, I wanted to read it. The boys are back in school and need to do work for extra credit. When a new boy arrives in town, complete with a fancy new betamax camcorder, the stage is set to film a zombie movie for extra credit. With colourful drawings, this is a great tie-in to the show.

    A fun, quick read that would have been much better had it been fleshed out into a full-length story. The first half is great but the second half feels almost rushed. Like the author had a page limit to reach and he was just trying to get the second half of the story told within the allotted amount of remaining pages.

    Pretty simplistic, but fun and not a challenge of wading through rehash like the other Stranger Things comics have been.This takes place between season 1 and 2 and is a small character exploration moment for one of the boys and the group as a whole.

    Awesome artwork and cute storyline, but that's pretty much it. This is Stranger Things fluff that's not particularly great or inspiring, just something to keep us crazy nerds quiet until the next season or novel comes out. You'll enjoy it if you're a big fan of the franchise, not so much if you're looking for a good story.
