‘Dungeons and Dragons’ is poised to return with a new four-issue comic.
The iconic cartoon – which was based on a role-playing game of the same name – originally aired on CBS between 1983 and 1985, and it’s now been confirmed that ‘Dungeons and Dragons: Saturday Morning Adventures’ will land on shelves in March 2023.
IDW – which will publish the four-issue mini-series – said: “Danger lurks at every turn, the enigmatic Dungeon Master is less than helpful, and Venger – the force of evil – will stop at nothing to get his hands on the magical weapons that the kids have come to rely on.
“To top it off, Hank has made a startling discovery: despite the dangers, Sheila, Bobby, Diana, and the others aren’t so sure they want to go home after all!”
David M Booher revealed that he jumped at the chance to write the new series.
He told CBR.com: “As a kid, I would wake up on Saturday morning, pour a bowl of cartoon-themed cereal, and plop myself in front of the ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ cartoon.
“When IDW approached me about writing ‘Saturday Morning Adventures’, there was no chance I was passing up the opportunity to help this ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ party face Venger once more.”
Sam Maggs – who is the co-writer – is also thrilled to be working on the miniseries.
Sam said: “As a lifelong ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ fan, it is an absolute dream to get to work reviving a childhood classic.
“It’s been such a blast working with IDW and the fine folks at Wizards of the Coast to home in on what made the ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ Saturday morning cartoon such a cult favourite. Setting these characters up for a whole new run of stories has truly been a career highlight.”
