Hasbro, Inc. and IDW Publishing have today announced their latest comic book collaboration, Clue, a brand new 5-issue series inspired by Hasbro’s classic board game of the same name (Cluedo in the UK), arriving on shelves this June.
The internationally renowned murder mystery game has already inspired a major motion picture and forthcoming stage production, and now fans will have the chance to follow the adventures of Miss Scarlet, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum and other classic characters in comic book form.
Putting a comedic spin on the classic Clue concept, Paul Allor (Guardians of the Galaxy, G.I. JOE) will be writing the series, joined by artist Nelson Dániel (Dungeons & Dragons, The Cape).
The new series opens after the doomed Mr. Boddy is murdered at his own dinner party and everyone is a suspect!
Will Boddy’s body be the last to fall, or is it just the beginning?
Readers will have to follow the clues to solve the mystery, which deepens even further as issue one will feature three alternate endings!
Depending on which variant cover comic book sleuths pick up, a unique conclusion unfolds. Is it a clue, or a red herring?
Readers can collect all the variants (and clues), as well as the main cover by Eisner award-winning artist Gabriel Rodriguez, this June to find out!
