Hasbro and IDW Publishing are teaming up for a five issue mini series adapting Hasbro’s popular detective board game. This is the first time Clue will be adapated into comic book form.
The board game that inspired a major motion picture and an upcoming stage production will take comic books by storm this June. Miss Scarlet, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and more will embark on a journey to figure out who killed Mr. Boddy!
“Clue is one of Hasbro’s most iconic brands for good reason – it’s a fun murder mystery concept filled with colorful characters,” said Michael Kelly, Director of Publishing at Hasbro. “IDW has been our trusted partner in the comic world for a long time, and we are thrilled with the way they’ve translated the property to this new medium. Readers will love following along with the story and trying to unravel the mystery of the case.”
“Ask the average person, and they can tell you who the suspects in Clue are,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW Publishing’s President and CCO. “They are household names and have provided countless hours of entertainment for audiences across the globe. We are looking forward to building an intriguing new world with these characters.”
This new miniseries will be brought to life by Paul Allor and artist Nelson Dániel.
“I am incredibly excited to be working on this project, especially with an artist as talented as Nelson Dániel,” said Allor. “In the grand tradition of the Clue franchise, we’re crafting a fun, exciting and at times completely bonkers story that will keep people guessing until the very end! I truly can’t wait for comics readers to step into the mansion and find out just what we have in store for them.”
And in true Clue tradition, there will be three alternate endings after just the first issue! Each ending may provide a clue or a possible red herring. The only way you get your hands on all three endings is to pick up the different variant covers as well as the main cover by Eisner award-winning artist Gabriel Rodriguez.
Mr. Boddy has been murdered. Will he be the last to fall, or is it just the beginning? Find out this June!
