    Stranger Things: Six reminds us why the TV show was such an instant hit. Sure, there's a riveting story full of monsters from another world, but at its heart it's full of well-defined characters. I've only known Francine for a short amount of time, however that's been more than enough for me to be fully invested in her life. I'm cheering her on as she questions authority and prepares for a fight she doesn't yet realize is coming. This is some awesome stuff. Read Full Review

    As we're only halfway through the narrative, there's a lot of potential for the series to capitalize on, but after two issues, all we've really been given is something that feels like an homage to the TV series as opposed to a worthy narrative deserving of its own comic book series.
