New Stranger Things Graphic Novel Arrives
Netflix’s Stranger Things gets a second middle-grade graphic novel in ‘Stranger Things: The Bully’
Best-selling author Greg Pak (Star Wars: Darth Vader, Ronin Island) and artist Valeria Favoccia (Assassin's Creed: Reflections, Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor) return to the Stranger Things universe with the middle-grade graphic novel Stranger Things: The Bully, along with colorist Dan Jackson and letterer Nate Piekos. Troy and James from season one of the series try to uncover the mystery of Eleven’s supernatural powers in this younger-reader comic!
Troy has been having nightmares about El ever since she embarrassed him and broke his arm in season one. Powerless and anxious, Troy is determined to convince himself that what happened was only some form of trickery and now he is obsessed with getting even. That is, until he and James encounter a pack of Demodogs!
Praise for Stranger Things: Zombie Boys:
“The artwork is just lovely. It’s crisp and clean with some impressive shading, especially when emotions are running high and the artist gives characters striking shades and colors.” – Fanbase Press
“The book plays out with an emphasis on post traumatic bits of the gang’s situation …a well-voiced focus on the dynamic of the group.”—iHorror
