Oct 04, 2019
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.
