The first Stranger Things miniseries will come from the creative team of writer Jody Houser and artists Stefano Martino, Keith Champagne, Lauren Affe and Nate Piekos, and will reveal what happened to Will Byers after he was taken to the Upside Down in Season 1. Since Will spent the majority of the first season stuck in the Upside Down, the new miniseries will provide fans with their first look at what type of dangers and creatures the young boy experienced during his time away.
Stranger Things #1 from Jody Houser, Stefano Martino, Keith Champagne, Lauren Affe and Nate Piekos will arrive on September 26 from Dark Horse Comics.
