Stranger Reads: Graphic Novels for Fans of Stranger Things

What happened to Barb? Is Eleven safe? How will I pass the time after I watch all of Stranger Things season two this weekend?

We Stranger Things fans are as plagued by these questions as Will Byers is haunted by memories of The Upside Down. (OK, not quite, but it feels like it.)

While only the show's writers can answer our first two questions, I'm here to answer the third. Here are some graphic novels to help fill the void we'll feel when the end credits roll on the finale. They provide enough suspense, chills and laughs to tide us over until we find our next binge-worthy show.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a spin-off from Archie with a creepy paranormal twist that makes Greendale seem an awful lot like Hawkins, Ind.

Lumberjanes: Volume One, Beware the Kitten Holy is the first in a campy series about, well, a camp in which a group of smart and funny girls encounter supernatural critters and strange happenings.

The Lumberjanes series is available in eBook.

Paper Girls is as close to Stranger Things in book form as it gets. It also takes place in a Midwestern town in the 1980s and involves four quirky best friends who discover something huge, horrible and unexplainable. Be sure to check out all three volumes.

Spill Zone is a new series about a town haunted by a mysterious "spill," something like a porthole to another dimension, and a girl determined to uncover its secret.

Spill Zone is also available as an eBook.

What do you recommend to fill the Stranger Things void?
