It’s January 1985 the Hawkins crew survived their battle with the mind flayer, but Will and Joyce are still reeling from the recent death of Bob Newby. Will’s friends have been too busy with their girlfriends to notice how much he is struggling. After he and Mr. Clarke discover a mysterious map Bob left in a box of old nerdy memorabilia, Will rallies the crew to investigate.
Is there a secret hidden in the hills of Hawkins?
The book just garnered a rave review from AIPT Comics that says it “has all the makings of the perfect Halloween story with your favorite Netflix characters.” Read the whole thing here!
I first pitched this series over a year ago, long before the death of my mother. But the way these characters struggle with loss has special resonance for me now, and I’m tremendously grateful to the incredible creative team for making the story sing.
Please feel free to ask your local comic shop to hold a copy for you today! Hope you enjoy, and all the best.
