    But Why Tho? - Derrick Pittman Nov 4, 2020

    Stranger Things and Dungeons & Dragons #1 is an amazing issue for any fan of Stranger Things and/or Dungeons & Dragons. It shows our characters in a sense of normalcy without the real monsters. This issue also gives D&D players that nostalgic kick of when they first dove into the tabletop RPG and the excitement they felt campaigning and finishing that campaign. Stranger Things and Dungeons & Dragons #1 is a perfect amalgamation of growing up, friendship, and a passion for geek culture. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Nov 9, 2020

    OverallWriters Jody Houser and Jim Zub do a brilliant job of giving us the further adventures of Mike, Lucas, Will and Dustin as they learn to understand the world through D&D. I love how well written the accidental discovery of the game was. Additionally, the writing team does a brilliant job of capturing the playful banter that the group has. In Particular, Dustin's introduction was handled very well. Read Full Review

    I look forward to more of this bizarre mix of intellectual properties; the concept sounds insane and yet I very much enjoyed the story presented so far. Roll on the next issue" Read Full Review
