The hit Netflix series from the Duffer Brothers is now a spine-tingling comic that recounts Will Beyers’ harrowing survival in the treacherous Upside Down!
When Will Byers finds himself in the Upside Down, an impossible dark parody of his own world, he’s understandably frightened. But that’s nothing compared with the fear that takes hold when he realizes what’s in that world with him!
Follow Will’s struggle through the season one events of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things! Written by Jody Houser (Mother Panic, Faith) and illustrated by Stefano Martino (Doctor Who, Catwoman)
I love the show Stranger Things, so I’m excited about the new books about the show that are coming out.
This graphic novel is about Will’s time spent in the Upside Down. It wasn’t a very exciting story, especially if you’ve already watched the show. There were some flashbacks to him playing dungeons and dragons with his friends, but most of the story wasn’t new.
The illustrations could have been more detailed. The characters faces looked flat, without realistic details. I could tell who the characters were just based on their clothes from the show, but they didn’t really look like the real actors.
I was a little disappointed in this graphic novel. I hope the novels about Stranger Things are better.
