An epic new piece of Stranger Things Season 4 art depicts Eddie Munson ruling (and shaking) Vecna’s lair in the style of Conan the Barbarian.
An epic new piece from Weird stuff Season 4 art sees Eddie rule over Vecna’s Lair, guitar in hand. First airing on Netflix in 2016, Weird stuff quickly became a huge hit, telling the story of a group of youths in the 1980s who discover a portal to another dimension at the heart of a mysterious government research facility. Weird stuff most recently, the first part of the two-part penultimate season aired, with the return of favorite characters like Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Hopper (David Harbour), as well as introducing a few newcomers.
Among the handful of new characters is Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn), the anarchist leader of the Dungeons & Dragons Hellfire club and lead guitarist in Corroded Coffin, his band. After Eddie’s rebellious attitude makes him a fan favorite, he’s wanted by the authorities for the murder of Chrissy (Grace Van Dien), for which Vecna (Jamie Campbell Bower) is actually responsible. Weird stuff Season 4 Episode 7 saw the character escape from the Upside Down and reunite with his friends, but trailers for the show’s remaining episodes tease that Eddie will have a bigger role in upcoming episodes.
In a new artwork from the Stranger Things 4 fan account on Twitter, Eddie is portrayed as ruler of what appears to be Vecna’s Mind Lair. The red sky and the Creel house in the background are reminiscent of the way the villain’s lair is depicted in the show, albeit with obvious artistic nods to 80s hits like Conan the Barbarian and Masters of the Universe. The art features Eddie with a “rock and rollhand gesture held high as lightning strikes behind him and the devil’s head is at his feet. Check out the epic fan art below:
Initially teased back in the first Weird stuff season 4 trailers and shown again in the more recent ones for the last two episodes of the season, Eddie will pick up the guitar and rock out at some point before the season is over. The trailer shows the character playing atop what appears to be his mobile home in the Upside Down as red lightning strikes behind him, a scene that seems to be at least part of the inspiration behind the impressive fan art. While the context of the scene isn’t clear yet, many fans are apparently already excited to see Eddie fight back against Vecna in a signature awesome way.
One of the reasons why Weird stuff is so popular is the obvious inspiration it takes from hit movies of the 1980s. The show’s retro vibe also allows for truly creative fan art, such as the epic He-Man-inspired Eddie art above. It remains to be seen how prominently Eddie will play in the final episodes of Weird stuff season 4 and Eleven’s ultimate fight against Vecna, but at the very least it looks like fans will finally see Quinn’s character rocking the guitar.
