‘Stranger Things’ Prequel Halloween Comic Announced

Dark Horse Comics has announced the brand new Stranger Things Halloween Special One-Shot, which serves as prequel the first season of the Netflix original series and is set on Halloween night.

The one-shot comic takes place in the days before Season 1 of the hit Netflix original series Stranger Things, less than a week before Will Byers disappears.

The official synopsis: It’s Halloween night in Hawkins, Indiana and Will, Mike, Lucas, and Dustin gather in Castle Byers to eat candy and scare each other with spooky stories. Little do they know, they’ll reveal the quaint town’s deepest kept secret – the Child-Eater of Hawkins.

The comic features the work of Michael Moreci (Wasted Space, Star Wars), Todor Hristov (The Forever Maps, Soul Trader), Chris O’Halloran (Ice Cream Man, Immortal Hulk), and Nate Piekos.

The Stranger Things Halloween Special One-Shot arrives October 21, and is available for pre-order now through your local comic shop.
