Excited to report that starting this September, Dark Horse is publishing a four issue comic book miniseries called STRANGER THINGS: TOMB OF YBWEN, written by yours truly with line art by Diego Galindo, colors by Franceso Segala, letters by Nate Piekos, and covers by Galindo, Marc Aspinall, Kyle Lambert, and Irvin Rodriguez!

Here’s the official blurb:

It’s January 1985. The Hawkins crew survived their battle with the terrible Mind Flayer, but Will is 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. However, Will finds a way to bring the team back together again when he and Mr. Clarke discover a mysterious map Bob left in a box of old nerdy memorabilia. Will rallies the crew to investigate and they find more than they could have imagined. Stranger Things: Tomb of Ybwen explores grief and friendship all while capturing the Stranger Things’ sense of adventure.

And here’s my quote from the io9 announcement:

“I’m so thrilled to be working with such an amazing team on a story that combines classic ‘80s treasure hunt hijinks with impending natural disaster and a high-stakes emotional story as Will grapples with the aftermath of the death of Bob Newby,” Pak said in a press release. “Diego, Francesco, and Nate are capturing the wonder, danger, and emotion in every page and every panel. And as always, it’s a thrill to be working on a story that fills in key emotional context for our heroes while giving unexpected characters a chance to really shine. I’ll just say if you like Mr. Clarke, you’re gonna LOVE this book!”

Huge high five as always to our Dark Horse editors Spencer Cushing and Konner Knudsen.
