For added value, each issue features extra-length story content and will feature brand new CLUE game cards based on the comic.
I’m not sure how I feel about the artwork this go around, but we shall see ...

But I can say I like setup, and weapons descriptions in the preview ... looks like a fun story!

Ugh. Don’t love the artwork. Interesting idea to include the game cards, though!

So I looked up the author on YouTube to see what type of animation does he make and founded this: https://youtu.be/oMVF-D8-yX0

Vary strange style. I feel like this and the last Clue comic try to take creative liberties with how the story is told. Can't blame em tough with what little their is to work with. Tough I'm glad this time their won't be huge amounts of fourth wall breaking. The art style is better suited in my opinion in a painting then a comic. A little to abstract and confusing.

that being said. the preview pages of Prof. Plum story wise is intersting with the detective work.

This looks promising. The artwork is reminiscent of The Clue Armchair Detective book

I'm so looking forward to this.

Maybe the artwork isn't everyone's cup of tea, but any new clue stuff is fun and adds to Cluedo's appeal.

He very well could be Dr Black !

Interesting?

Speaking of characters I'm starting to wonder who is going to be in this. Initially I thought perhaps the canonical 6. However I realise looking at the images that it isn't that straightforward.

On the cover of issue 1 it looks like we get Professor Plum, Dr Orchid & Colonel Mustard.

On the cover of issue 2 we get Dr Orchid kissing goodbye to Mustard BUT. If you look at the panel underneath issue 1 it's a very different Colonel Mustard!

Could this one be Dr Lemon ?

Plus in the same panel it appears we get Mr Green (with bald head & green tie) & a guy in a grey jacket.

Looking at the last panel it appears that "Black" is trying to complete a collection. So are these the OTHER characters from variants?

I'm suggesting that we might get a more unusual lineup.

That's Scarlett kissing Boddy goodbye, not Orchid kissing Mustard.
In the first image on top of the forum, Mustard has blonde hair.
So it's going to be the original six.
Also might I add, this might be the first time where the Clue cast is interracial (DTS, 2012, and Allor's Clue don't count)

Either way it looks like Boddy & Mustard croak in issues 1-3

Still very excited for this. Plus we get Clue cards too

vary interesting. from what pages you have found. Mustard's past is interesting. I'm not sure if I like arrows telling us if something is moving. Their are other ways to point things out in a still picture. like lines to show movement or the panels having the lighting change with the flickering sounds written near the lamps. I do kinda like the table with the chart showing who is what color.

Interesting. They’re in the style of the 1972 game, in the same poses and even the same font style. I wonder if there’s going to be a complete set, or just the suspects and the eponymous candlestick. I also wonder if we’ll get the complete 1972 vignette art in one of the issues.
