it was ok

As a huge fan of Stranger Things, I was really excited for this and was looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately, it’s rather disappointing. The story of what Will experiences while trapped in the Upside Down isn’t particularly compelling (as one might guess, it’s mostly just him running and hiding from the monster). There’s honestly just not that much story there — there’s maybe enough content for two issues, and dragging it out into four was a bad choice. The fact that it was mostly just art and narration also brought down the book. I was looking for an expansion of Will’a character, but all we got was text boxes describing what we could see happening in the panels. Honestly, it pains me to say this but I’d give this one a pass. Even for a die hard fan it’s barely worth it.
