Dark Horse Comics has announced the upcoming release of Stranger Things Summer Special, a one-shot comic which sees Hawkins P.D. Officers Powell and Callahan teaming up for a buddy cop adventure!
Officers Powell and Callahan patrol the “mean” streets of Hawkins Indiana with the enthusiasm of two hefty dachshunds pretending to be bloodhounds. Typically, they don’t have to chase down more than the occasional petty theft and teenagers smoking reefer but lately the town has been getting weirder, and while they might not get to the bottom of it, they just might be lucky enough to survive it.
Written by Keith Champagne (Stranger Things: Science Camp, Green Lantern), illustrated by Caio Filipe, colored by Dan Jackson (The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, Hellboy: Weird Tales), and lettered by Nate Piekos (Black Hammer: Reborn, The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion), the Stranger Things Summer Special arrives just in time for the summer premiere of Stranger Things 4, and features covers by Diego Galindo and Heather Vaughn!
It’s been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time – and navigating the complexities of high school hasn’t made things any easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.
