Another issue and another murder! And we are no closer to finding out who the killer (or killers?) is/are. Normally I am pretty good at who-done-its, but Paul Allor has a way of keeping things well hidden in these pages. Like I said about the last issue, I am keeping an eye on Green and Orchid, but that is not to say I think they have murder on the brain. I do have my thoughts about who is the killer, though. Of course, I am not going to discuss them in this review, we are all on this ride together. All I am going to say is that sometimes the mystery genre leans too heavy on particular characters to distract us from the real perpetrator.

A little background on me, Clue is one of my top 10, all time, favorite films. I will watch it any time it is on no matter what part it is on. Just the other day I was talking with a co-worker about Tim Curry and of course, the movie came up. I then had to bring the conversation to this comic. IDW has always had a great way of bringing existing franchises to life anew. Even though there are dramatic differences between this and the film, if you are a fan of the latter, pick these issues up!

Have you seen this:
Masters of the Universe: Revelation # 1

Even if you know nothing of the 1980s classic film or the game, you still need to see this comic. The artwork of Nelson Daniel is phenomenal. He uses a pop art feel that gives the pages age, while at the same time making them timeless. It is honestly hard to explain, you must experience it. I also recommend looking through it multiple times. At least once for the story and then other times for clues. I know Mr. Daniel is hiding something in there that I am just not seeing.
