Eddie Munson’s bravely battling beasties in the Upside Down while fueled by delectable riffs is how we all know he dies in Eddie Stranger Things Season 4’s breakthrough character. However, how did Eddie, portrayed by Joseph Quinn in the popular Netflix Series, initially become so cool? All will be there in a new companion book.
The Cover and Plot Summary for Caitlin Schneiderhan’s Eddie Stranger Things:
Flight of Icarus has been made public by Entertainment Weekly. As a Stranger Things Season 5 writer, the author saw Flight of Icarus as a prism for Eddie’s transformation into the beloved misfit. The book is set in 1984, while the 4th season of Eddie Stranger Things took place in 1986; for comparison, the 1st season was in 1983. It will be out on October 31.
The Synopsis, as Disclosed By EW, is as Follows:
For the majority, Hawkins, Indiana, is just another lovely, well-kept all-American community. Eddie Munson, though, compares it to living in a never-ending Tomb of Horrors. Fortunately, he only needs to remain at Hawkins High for a few more months. Besides band gigs and Hellfire Club D&D meetings, what else does the senior year hold?
Eddie from Stranger Things meets Paige, a woman who has performed a freaking miracle at the worst dive pub in town. She fled Hawkins and established a wickedly sophisticated life in Los Angeles, working for an album producer. She’s the only one who sees him as a talented musician, not a villain. She’s also a badass with great taste in music. The best part? If he takes a chance on himself, he can win her over by giving her a demo cassette of his band’s best songs.
There is Only One Issue
The recording is expensive. Eddie does not have any money. But he is prepared to go to any lengths, even if it means leaning on his grandfather, AI Munson. In Eddie Stranger Things, Eddie recently learned that his father had returned to his life with yet another questionable plan up his sleeve, but he is aware that this is his only means of earning enough money quickly. He will ultimately have a one-way ticket out of Hawkins if it succeeds, though it’s risky. Eddie has a gut feeling that 1984 will be his year.
The book primarily focuses on Eddie’s character development. The cover shows him in a heroic battle against Vecna, wielding metal power. However, the music industry undoubtedly has its share of nightmares. In addition, because of the occurrences of season 4, we know that Stranger Things Eddie Munson’s escape from Hawkins was never going to happen – either in 1984 or ever.
Still, it seems like an enjoyable book to read. How could it not, with the charming Mr. Munson at its core? Quinn was recently cast in A Quiet Place: Day One opposite Lupita Nyong’o, demonstrating that he has not shied away from the horror genre despite being a one-season Eddie Stranger Things wonder.
