Stranger Things Returns to Comics with Stranger Things: Kamchatka

From writer Michael Moreci, artist Todor Hristov, colorist Dan Jackson, and letterer Nate Piekos, presented by Dark Horse Comics, comes a new Stranger Things comic series, Stranger Things: Kamchatka!

A Russian scientist is kidnapped by Soviet troops, leaving nothing for his two teenage children but a mysterious case and a whole lot of questions. While their father is dragooned into weaponizing a monster brought back from the US, the two teenagers embark on a harrowing and perilous journey to find him, with help from an unlikely ally: an old but extremely deadly former KGB spy.

Ahead of the mid-2022 release of Stranger Things Season Four on Netflix, Stranger Things: Kamchatka #1 will be in comic shops March 23, 2022.

It’s January 1985. The Hawkins crew survived their battle with the terrible Mind Flayer, but Will is still reeling from the recent death of Bob Newby.

Baskin-Robbins Stranger Things Steve Exclusive is Seeing Price Gouging from Franchise Owners

Pop! Stranger Things Baskin-Robbins Exclusive Steve

Exclusives for shops are nothing new and Funko is no stranger to them. Their promotion with Baskin-Robbins though is leaving some collectors very angry and with a bad taste in their mouth (I avoided the lactose intolerance pun, so points for me).

Tied in to the season premiere of Stranger Things 3, Baskin-Robbins shops are receiving an Exclusive Pop! Television: Stranger Things Steve figure and stores are taking advantage of it.

While it was expected to retail for $12.99 like normal pops, stores are setting their own prices and we’ve seen up to $80. $24.99, $29.99, $49.99 are not uncommon and that’s lead to collectors voicing their displeasure and comparing Funkos to the similar “jump the shark” moment Beanie Babies experienced when stores began to jack up prices.

Is this the moment collectors rise up and some changes to exclusives are made? So far, Funko and Baskin-Robbins have been quiet about the situation but we’ll update if they make any statements.

You can see Funko’s announcement and the angry responses below.

Pop! TV Strange Things Season 3 are Coming Soon

Brace yourself because things are about to get strange with the July 4 Netflix release of Stranger Things season 3. Bring home the entire cast including Pop! Jim Hopper dressed to impress, Pop! Lucas wearing casual attire, Pop! Max ready to go to the mall, Pop! Dustin wearing camp clothes, Pop! Will the Wise dressed for a Dungeons & Dragons session, Pop! Erica looking ready for action, Pop! Steve wearing an adorable Ahoy hat and carrying an ice cream cone, Pop! Eleven dressed for the mall and Pop! Eleven ready for battle.

Pop! TV Strange Things Season 3 are coming soon from Funko.
