Christmas is coming…even to Hawkins, Indiana.
While anxious fans of the Netflix hit series Stranger Things await the debut of Season 4–slated to hit the streamer next summer–they still have to get through the winter. And Dark Horse Comics has rolled out something to keep them busy.
A special one-shot comic–Stranger Things: Winter Special–hit comic book shelves last week, according to the publisher’s website (darkhorse.com), and the issue’s cover can be seen on this page.
The 48-page comic–priced at $6.99–was written by Chris Roberson, illustrated by ABEL and lettered by Nate Piekos. Steve Morris drew the cover, and Jonathan Case supplied a variant cover.
The comic is set during the winter holidays, according to the synopsis, “and the kids of Hawkins are in full spirit. As they recall stories from their childhood to teach Eleven about Christmas, tensions run high as Dustin swears he saw something lurking in the forest outside.”
Explaining the storyline, Roberson said he was the same age of the younger children on Stranger Things in the time the comic is set, “and I’m now the age of the adult characters, so every time I rewatch the series, I find myself in a strange echo chamber–remembering what it was like to be those kids, while understanding what their parents are now going through.”
