    A welcome return to the world of Hawkins, it's a setting ripe for one shot Halloween stories along these lines and fans will absolutely devour this issue. Something that can be easily picked up and read without reading any of the other Stranger Things comics it's an ideal starting point for fans looking to explore a little more of the Stranger Things world. The characters are so brilliantly brought to life, the art is another fantastic reason to pick this one-shot up. Read Full Review

    I thought this was a fun comic that captures the spirit of friendship found in the show and should be a good read for anyone who misses the Stranger Things characters during their extended hiatus. Read Full Review

    If you are waiting on the third season, this is a good appetizer. It's adult enough for the Stranger Things fan who needs something to get them over the hump, but it is kid enough to appreciate a Halloween tale this time of year! Happy Reading! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Oct 20, 2020

    I was not too excited about picking up Stranger Things Halloween Special. I really just want the tv show, but like I said, I am a sucker for certain things, and this hit all the sweet spots to get me to pick it up. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised: it delivered exactly what I wanted. It didn't really add or take away anything from the show's lore or mythos; it didn't change or add any characters. Really has zero effect on the show. It just showed the kids being kids and having fun before their world got turned "upside-down" (sorry, had to throw that in there). Read Full Review

    Stranger Things Halloween Special One-Shot is a fun, yet spooky read. Portraying everything that makes the series so memorable, from the characters to the aesthetic, this in a one-shot worth checking out. Read Full Review
