Dark Horse Announces ‘Minecraft 2’ and ‘Stranger Things: The Bully’
Dark Horse is announcing two new graphic novels today, both followups to earlier books.
Creators Sfé R. Monster and Sarah Graley return to the world of blocks in Minecraft Volume 2, in which the gang of real-life friends heads out for new adventures:
Minecraft Volume 2 welcomes us back into Minecraft’s EverRealm where the gang plans their latest adventure to an ocean monument! But when their grand quest gets sidetracked by bullies (in game and in real life), the players must devise a plan to rescue their new friends!
Assaulted by pirates, and then forced to reckon with an even bigger threat, all the players realize they must learn to rely on each other to face adversity.
We interviewed Monster and Graley when Minecraft Volume 1 came out. Targeted at grades 3-7, Minecraft Volume 2 is scheduled for release in October 2020.
We ran a preview of Stranger Things: Zombie Boys as well, and now Dark Horse is following it up with Stranger Things: The Bully, from the same creative team. Like Zombie Boys, this graphic novel follows up on events from the first season of the show:
The bullies from season one of hit Netflix series try to uncover the mystery of Eleven’s psychic powers in this scary all-ages comic!
Troy has been having nightmares about El ever since she embarrassed him in front of the school and broke his arm in season one. Powerless and anxious, Troy is determined to prove that what happened between him and El is only some form of trickery. That is until he and James encounter demodogs!
This book is also scheduled for publication in October 2020.
