Netflix supernatural drama is branching out.
Netflix phenomenon, Stranger Things has kept audiences captivated over two seasons with stories of the supernatural à la cheesy 1980s style with an impressive troupe of young actors and actresses.
Capitalizing on the show’s success and tapping its fan base, Netflix has teamed up with Dark Horse to publish a line of comics and graphic novels based on the show delving deeper into the world of Hawkins, Indiana.
“Dark Horse is known for championing stories and storytellers,” Dark Horse President Mike Richardson said in a statement. “We are so excited to work with Netflix to bring the world of Stranger Things to comics.”
The multi-year publishing line is set to launch its first series this fall. According to EW it will explore the adventures of Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) after he was transported to the Upside Down at the beginning of season 1. This means readers will get to know a lot more about Will’s time at the Upside Down, which was not explored during the season itself (he reappeared in that season’s finale when he was finally found by his mother).
Stranger Things #1 hits comic shops September 26.
