Dark Horse presents the Stranger Things Library Edition Volume 3

Dark Horse Books presents the next Stranger Things Library Edition Volume 3, collecting Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen by Greg Pak, Diego Galindo, Francesco Segala, and Nate Piekos, and Stranger Things: Holiday Specials by Michael Moreci, Chris Roberson, Keith Champagne, Todor Hristov, ABEL, Caio Filipe, Dan Jackson, and Nate Piekos. This oversized hardcover collection will feature cover art by Stranger Things fan-favorite artist, Kyle Lambert.

Stranger Things: The Tomb of Ybwen is set in January 1985 after the Hawkins crew survived a battle with the Mind Flayer. Will and Joyce are reeling from Bob Newby’s death, but Will’s friends have been too busy with their girlfriends to notice him struggling. After Mr. Clarke and Will discover an odd map Bob left in a box of A.V. club memorabilia, Will rallies the gang to investigate—but with a blizzard coming, they’re afraid to follow. But when Will takes off into the freezing wilds alone, they rush to stop him and just as they catch up, they discover that Bob’s map may lead to a real hidden treasure–and that turning back is no longer an option.

Stranger Things: Holiday Specials includes three separate heartwarming and terrifying stories perfect for any season. In the Winter Special, Eleven gets introduced to everyone’s favorite Christmas stories; in the Halloween Special, Will tells the other boys the scariest Hawkins Halloween story ever; and in the Summer Special, officers Powell and Callahan investigate strange events that they’ll be lucky to survive.

Stranger Things Library Edition Volume 3 will be in bookstores October 24, 2023 and in comic shops October 25, 2023. It is now available to pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop and indie bookstore.

story and art by Ryo Sumiyoshi · SRP: $12.99 ·
200 Pages · ISBN: 978-1-68497-136-7 ·  Available June 14th  

An epic fantasy adventure set in an alternate medieval Japan, where humans co-exist with the mythic half man/half horse beasts known as centaurs, or “jinba”. The centaur race was long revered as deities in ancient times; however, with the advent of the sengoku (warring states) period, humans started to enslave and use them for military purposes due to their speed, stamina, and ability to communicate in human language. Centaurs living in the plains were rapidly subjugated; in contrast, large numbers of centaurs living deep in the mountains were still free due to their relative isolation.

A wild and proud warrior jinba from the mountains named Matsukaze, known as the redheaded rock tiger, is caught while protecting his son. He is traded to a feudal lord and taken to his land. There he meets another centaur, named Kohibari, whose village was burned down as a child. He is a tame centaur, who had his arms amputated when he was captured, and has given up hope of escaping his human captors. If they can get over their differences and work together, they just might be able to return to the wilds as free centaurs.

Barbaric: Hell to Pay #1 continues the off the rails adventure

Barbaric: Hell to Pay #1

Barbaric is back and headed straight to hell in an all-new arc so big and bloody, it’s getting an extra issue! Barbaric: Hell to Pay #1 kicks off a whole new chapter that has Soren and Steel crossing paths with someone else from the barbarian’s past. Who’s now carrying Axe? The off the rails adventure continues with a new mission.

Written by Michael Moreci, Barbaric: Hell to Pay #1 is not a bad place to start for new readers while it also brings together a lot of what has come in the past. Owen is somewhere… and Soren and Steel are attempting to find and rescue him. That has them dealing with rather sketchy characters that eventually leads them right into an old acquaintance of Owen’s.

Moreci keeps the familiar formula of solid action, lots of laughs, and characters you both feel a little bad for and also want to punch. They all have their quirks and none of them art particularly totally good in the hero sense. These are the characters that get out of hand when the dungeon master doesn’t have control over the game. They take things over the top with an attitude that a little violence and fighting goes a long way. Mix in some laughs and the result is a really entertaining fantasy ride that has delivered with every volume and release.

The art continues to be top notch. Nathan Gooden‘s pencils, Addison Duke‘s color, and Jim Campbell‘s lettering all come together for a comic that delivers the action visually and knows how to punch up the laughs with smart imagery. Axe particular works so well due to the exaggeration provided and the situations the axe is put in. Want to shut him up? Smash the axe into a tree. It’s a subtle joke that is pulled off due to how it’s portrayed in the panel.

Barbaric: Hell to Pay #1 continues the fantasy series with a whole new adventure and the same old attitude. If you like your fantasy tales juiced up to 11, this is a series that’s consistently for you. In a glut of extreme fantasy stories, this series has continually delivered and stood out with a great mix of action, humor, and attitude.
