The collection Stranger Things: Dungeons and Dragons from Dark Horse Comics is now available for pre-order and we’ve got a first look at the cover.
In Netflix’s Stranger Things, the young boys of Hawkins’ love of Dungeons & Dragons is apparent. Before meeting Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will ran their own magical campaigns and imagined some wild missions long before a Demogorgon ever visited their town. Stranger Things and Dungeons and Dragons follow their adventures rolling the dice and Screen Rant has the exclusive cover reveal for the upcoming collected edition.
The Stranger Things and Dungeons & Dragons comic launched last week from Dark Horse Comics and featured a star-studded creative team of Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Critical Role: Vox Machina), Jim Zub (Critical Role, Rick and Morty), Diego Galindo (Power Rangers), Nate Piekos (BANG!, X-Ray Robot), Msassyk (Isola), and E.M. Gist (Conan The Barbarian). The first issue followed the quests that not only helped the young boys become closer but to build up courage in their real lives. The series is a prequel to the Netflix series and follows the main characters of Stranger Things before things got truly weird in Hawkins, Indiana.
The series is set to be collected in an upcoming edition which will feature a brand new cover that showcases the boys in their DnD roles. Dustin can be seen wielding a battle axe, Mike and Lucas are both wielding swords (with the latter duel-wielding) and Will has a wizard cap and a staff. In the background, a red dragon can be seen breathing fire. Meanwhile, the boys’ characters can be seen in the very bottom right corner of the image.
Here’s the solicit for the upcoming issue, which teases some fun adventures ahead for the entire Stranger Things crew.
Follow the crew from Hawkins, Indiana, as they discover the legendary monsters and epic adventures of the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop role-playing game together.
Long before the dreaded Demogorgon took one of them to the Upside Down, watch Mike, Lucas, and Will bond with Dustin for the first time over the game that would define their childhood. See the party come together as a team through communal stories and perilous quests to learn important lessons about friendship and find the courage to stand up to the bullies that challenge their everyday.
The first issue of Stranger Things and Dungeons and Dragons is in stores now. The collected edition with this brand-new cover will available June 29, 2021, and is now available to be pre-ordered through your local comic book store or via Amazon.com. For fans jonesing for some more Stranger Things content ahead of the show’s fourth season (the release date is TBD with the COVID-19 pandemic halting production), picking up this series and the subsequent collection should quench your thirst until the show comes back.
