I was thrilled to discover that STRANGER THINGS: TOMB OF YBWEN was the 13th best selling trade on the NPD BookScan Top 20 “Superheroes” Graphic Novel list for September!
The book was written by yours truly with interior art by Diego Galindo, colors by Francesco Segala, letters by Nate Piekos, and a lovely cover by Kyle Lambert (which you can read about more on Kyle’s site).
Writing this book meant a lot to me — on the surface, it’s a hugely fun ’80s treasure hunt, but under the surface it’s about grappling with bereavement, and it’s all heart, all the time. I loved working with editors Spencer Cushing and Konner Knudsen and the entire creative team and am so gratified the book’s resonated with readers.
Here’s the official solicit:
It’s January 1985, and 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. Collects the four-issue miniseries.
Please do feel free to ask your local comic shop to hold a copy of the book for you today or pick it up via Bookshop.org!
