With Netflix giving us the official “Stranger Things Season 4 is happening” teaser this past week, fans all over are wanting more. While we still don’t know the release date of this popular hit series, the one thing we do know is when the next comic series is coming at us. That’s right, today Dark Horse Comics announced during NYCC 2019 that Jody Houser will be writing another Stranger Things Series and it will be here in January 2020. Here is what Dark Horse had to say:
Stranger Things Press Release
Dark Horse Comics and Netflix are expanding the world of Stranger Things in the newest Stranger Things comic series, Stranger Things: Into the Fire! In 1984, several years after escaping Hawkins, two survivors of Dr. Brenner’s experiments seek out their lost fellow experiment, number Nine, who needs their help now more than ever. Writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things: SIX, Critical Role), line artist Ryan Kelly (Lucifer, Saucer Country), inker Le Beau Underwood (Stormwatch, Batwing), colorist 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.
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.
The Comic Series
Dark Horse is no stranger to this comic series. First, they brought us The Other Side. There, writer Jody Houser gave us the story of Will Byers struggle in the Upside Down during the first season of the show on Netflix. Then they released Stranger Things: Six. This series took us back before the Netflix series to tell the story of some of Brenner’s test subjects and their time at the Hawkins Lab.
