Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and “Black Hammer” Headline Dark Horse’s FCBD 2019 Gold Offering


Visit your local comic shop May 4, 2019, for Free Comic Book Day! Dark Horse is thrilled to announce tales from two diverse worlds in our FCBD Gold Offering featuring Netflix’s Stranger Things and a spooky trip into Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s Eisner Award-winning series Black Hammer with a cover by Chun Lo.

In Stranger Things, writer Jody Houser and artist Ibrahim Moustafa bring the adventuring party back together after Eleven’s disappearance, as Nancy and Steve find a way to lift the spirits of a despondent Mike. Perhaps all it takes is a roll of the dice. Then, in the world of the Eisner Award-winning Black Hammer series creator Jeff Lemire, guest writer Ray Fawkes, and artist David Rubín, take the reader on an EC-style tour through Madame Dragonfly’s mysterious Cabin of Horrors to witness two groups of brand-new Black Hammer heroes from the past!

Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books free to anyone who comes into their shops. 

Praise for Stranger Things:

"Jody Houser is the perfect writer for this series, not only because she is clearly a fan, but also because of her well-documented love of tabletop games . . . All in all, while we were definitely marks for this book before it even launched, we’re happy to report that it serves the Strange Things mythos wonderfully." —Nerdist

"The definitive companion piece to the nostalgia-filled Netflix hit!" —Infinite Earths

"A side story worthy of the Netflix series' success, "Stranger Things" #1 blends 80s comic aesthetic with modern sensibilities to triumphant effect." —Multiversity Comics


Praise for Black Hammer:

“I didn’t think something could be thrilling and sad at the same time but now there’s Black Hammer proving me wrong. Amazing, just flat-out amazing.”—Patton Oswalt

“I don’t read many comics these days and I can’t remember the last time I read a superhero comic, but I’m loving BLACK HAMMER.”—Mike Mignola (Hellboy)

“Black Hammer is the maddest, most brilliant comic I’ve read in years.”—Mark Millar (Kick Ass)
