With the fourth season of Stranger Things out now on Netflix, we thought it an opportune time to share this recording of actor David Harbour - Stranger Things' Jim Hopper himself - as he took part in an hour-long spotlight panel at the 2021 New York Comic Con.

Popverse will be adding great panels from the ReedPop archives each week, as well as livestreaming panels from the upcoming C2E2, Emerald City Comic Con, and New York Comic Con. These are benefits for Popverse members, so if you haven't signed up yet there's still time.

Hosted by Amanda Wirtz, the 2021 New York Comic Con spotlight panel for David Harbour featured the actor talking about the then-upcoming fourth season of Stranger Things, as well as his twin comic book roles - the Red Guardian in Black Widow and Hellboy himself in the 2019 Hellboy reboot. Harbour, who grew up in the nearby White Plains, is welcoming in his 2021 New York Comic Con chat - especially among fellow New Yorkers.
