Dark Horse Announces "Stranger Things" Prequel Comic
Feb 20, 2019
Attention Stranger Things fans! Are you curious about the origins of Project MKUltra and Dr. Brenner’s Hawkins Laboratory? Writer Jody Houser (StarCraft, Orphan Black), penciller Edgar Salazar (Constantine, Smallville), inker Keith Champagne (JSA, Superboy), colorist Triona Farrell (Mech Cadet Yu, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and letterer Nate Piekos (Fight Club 3, Doctor Star & The Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows) are signed on to introduce us to the other subjects trapped in the Hawkins Laboratory in Stranger Things: SIX. Dark Horse and Netflix are excited to release Stranger Things: SIX, the first prequel comic series to the Netflix Original series with covers by Aleksi Bricolt, Kyle Lambert, and David Mack.
Stranger Things: SIX follows Francine, a teenage girl with precognition. She's 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 to change her life. But at what cost?
Stranger Things: SIX #1 (of four) goes on sale May 29, 2019, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
