Three exciting standalone comics stories from the world of Stranger Things! Each focuses on younger characters from the Netflix hit, making this the perfect gift for any young fan.
Collects: Stanger Things: Zombie Boys, Stanger Things: The Bully, and Stanger Things: Erica The Great
In Zombie Boys: It’s spring in the normally quiet town of Hawkins, Indiana. Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and Will grapple with the traumatic encounters they had with the Demogorgon–the stress building tension in their crew. Just in time to distract them, Spielberg-wannabe, Joey Kim, joins their AV club with a Betamax Camcorder and a vision—to make the scariest movie Hawkins Middle School has ever seen.
In The Bully: Troy has been having nightmares about El ever since she embarrassed him in front of the school and broke his arm with telekinesis. Powerless and anxious, Troy is determined to prove that what happened between him and El is only some form of trickery. That is until he and his friend James encounter demodogs!
In Erica The Great: With the Starcourt Mall’s recent destruction, Erica has lost her favorite hangout spot and her “free ice cream for life” deal at Scoops-Ahoy. To make matters worse, her brother is too busy for her and her mom won’t let her play Dungeons & Dragons anymore. This is the story of an ambitious, bossy, brilliant ten-year-old dealing with the complexities of maintaining friendships and learning how to compromise.
