    If you're expecting lots of brand new monsters, you may find yourself disappointed. There are certainly flashbacks to beasts, but this issue isn't about that so much as it is about eerie vibes. It sets in motion a fun adventure for Will that's worth exploring, in part because it's an adventure he deserves. It's also a way to give Bob even more credit and highlight the great work Astin did in the role. Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen has all the makings of the perfect Halloween story with your favorite Netflix characters. Read Full Review

    I think without watching the seasons on Netflix this could be a hard issue to pick up for a casual reader but for fans of the show, it's a perfect filling between the seasons, helping grow the excitement without complicating the story or adding confusing new characters or locations. For an added touch get a hold of the Goonies homage cover which I think will go up in price/demand over the years. Read Full Review
