    But Why Tho? - Derrick Pittman Dec 3, 2020

    Stranger Things and Dungeon & Dragons #2 is an extremely heavy issue but can be cathartic to many readers. Houser and Zub humanize two of our main fictional characters while MSASSYK brings out raw emotions through an amazing display of facial expressions. With two more issues in this series run, I hope there are more lessons to be learned and an array of emotions to be felt. Read Full Review

    Overall. A really enjoyable issue that explores some aspects of the characters that we may not see in the actual TV show. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Dec 3, 2020

    It is a bit odd having a Stranger Things story with such little female presence, but it is just a peek into one aspect of the story and is a fun one at that. The hope is that we can get more series like these, that expand on character moments and adventures focusing on the main cast rather than using the comics to build up the mythology aspects that are often too dull to carry a series. In the end the mythology is fine but it's the friendships that bring us back to Stranger Things. Read Full Review

    It's a surprisingly deep comic, one that clearly comes from a place of love for D&D. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Calum Petrie Nov 25, 2020

    The art doesn't delve into the fantasy elements too greatly in this issue, and is instead used to recap previous events while displaying conflict and uncertainty going forward. I am interested to see where we go next – will there be another time jump between issues or will we find out more between seasons one and two? Read Full Review
