Over the past few years, I’ve written or co-written three middle grade Stranger Things comic book stories that have now been compiled in one big volume called the Stranger Things Afterschool Adventures Omnibus — which hits comic book shops on October 19!
The stories include “Zombie Boys,” “The Bully,” and “Erica the Great,” the last of which was co-written by Danny Lore. Dan Chan drew the cover, Valeria Favoccia provided line art, Dan Jackson colored, and Nate Piekos lettered.
All of these stories were a blast to write and all have a ton of heart, telling stories in between pivotal moments and seasons of the show. Please do feel free to check out the preview pages and ask your local comic shop to hold a copy for you today!
