Dark Horse and Netflix have announced a new multi-year team up to publish comics based on the show Stranger Things. The series is set to debut this September and is an officially licensed look further into the world of Hawkins, Indiana. The plans for publishing include not only comics for adults, but graphic novels for young adults as well.
“Dark Horse is known for championing stories and storytellers,” explained Dark Horse President and Founder Mike Richardson. “We are so excited to work with Netflix to bring the world of Stranger Things to comics.”
Jody Houser will write, with Stefano Martino as the penciler, Keith Champagne as the inker, and Lauren Affe as colorist.
