Stranger Things, the Netflix series that helped bring Dungeons & Dragons to new heights of popularity, will be united with the classic roleplaying game in a comic miniseries co-published by IDW Publishing (which has the D&D license) and Dark Horse Comics (which has the Stranger Things license).  Jim Zub, who will co-write the series with Jody Houser, posted the news on his blog after an announcement today on D&D Live.

Also in the creator credits are artist Diego Galindo, colorist MSASSYK, and letterer Nate Piekos. Galindo did the cover pictured here.

The story "…shows how Dungeons & Dragons has defined and strengthened the friendships in Stranger Things," Zub wrote.  He also noted that he’d been researching first edition D&D for the story.

The four-issue series will launch in November.
