Dark Horse Comics and Netflix are expanding the world of Stranger Things in the newest Stranger Things comic series, Stranger Things: Into the Fire, written by Jody Houser.
Writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things: SIX, Doctor Who), line artist Ryan Kelly (Lucifer, Saucer Country), inker Le Beau Underwood (Stormwatch, Batwing), colourist Triona Farrell (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Crowded), and letterer Nate Piekos (Black Hammer, The Mask: Pledge Allegiance to The Mask), explore the true effects of Dr. Brenner’s meddling experiments in Stranger Things: Into the Fire.
Set in 1984, in Stranger Things: Into the Fire, years after escaping Hawkins Lab, two of Dr. Brenner’s former subjects try to return to their live normal lives. When news reaches them that the lab was shut down they go on a harrowing search for Nine, a powerful pyrokinetic, whose shattered psyche threatens to burn them all to ashes if they can’t find her and free her from her own malevolent imagination.
When Will Byers finds himself in the Upside Down, an impossible dark parody of his own world, he’s understandably frightened. But that’s nothing compared with the fear that takes hold when he realises what’s in that world with him. Follow Will’s struggle through the season one events of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things.
Francine, a teenage girl with precognition, has struggled through a lifetime of exploitation: first by her parents, then by Dr. Brenner of Hawkins Laboratory. Dr. Brenner wants to harness her powers as well as those of the other gifted children that they hold captive at the lab. Wracked by increasingly disturbing visions, she sees an opportunity for her and all the children to escape. But at what cost?
Written by Jody Houser, SIX features art from Edgar Salazar and Keith Champagne (Black Panther).
