Dark Horse, who publish Stranger Things comics based on the hit Netflix show; and IDW who publish Dungeons & Dragons comics based on the popular tabletop roleplaying game; are teaming up to craft a comic miniseries combining the two properties. The team-up was announced during the D&D Live online event today. Jim Zub and Jody Houser will be writing the 4-issue story and from the cover to the first issue, it looks Diego Galindo, MSASSYK, and Nate Piekos round out the creative team.
Zub says that the comic mini-series:
“… shows how Dungeons & Dragons has defined and strengthened the friendships in Stranger Things. This story is filled with adventure, heart and a few supernatural surprises.”
Stranger Things is no stranger to the Dungeons & Dragons franchise. The characters played a game in the show, and a Stranger Things-themed Dungeons & Dragons starter set was released by Wizards of the Coast in 2019.
Stranger Things and Dungeons & Dragons #1 will roll onto shelves in November.
