I am obsessed with anything Stranger Things and I was so happy when I get these copies in my mail. But for the purpose of this post, I will review the graphic novel first and will review the book next time 🙂
PREQUEL: A SPIN OFF
Set in the time before everything happens on Stranger Things, it tells the story of Six and how she got recruited by the Hawkins Lab. What started as a highly suspenseful storyline, ends up going nowhere and without a purpose. Now, the main counter-argument would be it is to prepare for the next volume. However, a good first volume of any graphic novel should be able to deliver both a purposeful storyline to hook the readers and to make them want to buy the rest. If no, what’s the point right?
I would give most of the stars for the beautiful art and illustrations. Whenever I can relate to the emotions of the character just by observing the details in the artwork, it’s already won my heart.
