‘Stranger Things’ Anthology Comic Series Arriving from Dark Horse Comics in 2023

Comic writer Jody Houser, who has penned most of the “Stranger Things” comic books to date, is returning to Hawkins, Indiana in 2023 with an all-new anthology comic series set in the world of “Stranger Things.”

Titled “Stranger Things: Tales From Hawkins,” Houser will be joined by artists Caio Filipe (“Stranger Things: Summer Special”), Sunando C (“End After End”), Giorgia Gio Esposito (“Lunar Room”) colorist Dan Jackson (“The Strain”), and letterer Nate Piekos (“The Umbrella Academy”) to help bring the story to life.


On the surface, Hawkins, Indiana seems like the kind of town where nothing too out of the ordinary ever happens, but in the fall of ’83, it is anything but safe. In Issue #1 of Tales from Hawkins, two friends head out into the woods with their rifles and a six-pack. These would-be hunters find themselves the prey of a nightmarish beast that has claimed the wilderness around town and everything inside it, including them.

Issue one of the four-part series will arrive in comic shops on February 8, 2023. Artists Kyle Lambert, Diego Galindo, and Danny Luckert each contributed a variant cover for issue #1. All four variants are available for pre-order at your local comic shop.

  • Stranger Things: Tales From Hawkins Cover A by Marc Aspinall featuring a pair of hunters in a red and orange silhouette of the Demogrorgon
  • Stranger Things: Tales From Hawkins Cover B by Kyle Lambert featuring several characters from the "Stranger Things" universe in a spiral image
  • Stranger Things: Tales From Hawkins cover C by Diego Galindo featuring a pair of hunters in the woods with the Demogorgon standing behind them
  • Stranger Things: Tales From Hawkins Cover D by Danny Luckert featuring an illustration of the Demogorgon bearing its mouthfull of teeth in front of a tree

“Stranger Things: Tales from Hawkins” will be the seventh “Stranger Things” comic series from Dark Horse Comics, with Houser working on four of the last six. The latest series, “Stranger Things: Kamchatka,” concluded with its fourth issue in August and centered around the Russian prison camp where Hopper was kept in Netflix’s “Stranger Things 4.”
