The Board Game Clue Returns To Comics From Dash Shaw And IDW

by Oliver MacNamee

The board game Clue (or, Cluedo as it’s known here in the UK) is the inspiration for a new IDW mini-series by Dash Shaw, the comic book creator behind the animated film My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea. Called Clue: Candlestick, it’s three issues long and features all the Clue characters from Colonel Mustard to Ms. Scarlet and everyone in between. 

All of your favorite suspicious characters are back in this new brain twister based on the timeless detective game. The CLUE: Candlestick miniseries is rife with puzzles, secrets, and lies, and everyone’s a suspect! Visionary creator, Dash Shaw unleashes his murderous imagination – and writing, illustrative, coloring, and lettering prowess – on the quirky, thrilling and mysterious world of CLUE!

Along with the release of this news comes a preview, too. So, have at it readers and see what you think of this highly stylised, neat looking comic book. 

With Clue being another Hasbro partnership, it’ll be interesting to see its this series sells well enough to have IDW consider more of the same. Who knows, maybe we’ll all be reading the Mousetrap comic by the end of the year.
