As a bonafide Sparky the Stunt Dog fan, I feel it is my duty to report on this development.

https://www.plaidhatgames.com/news/790

Btw, is this a first? First comic based on a board game property (where the board game isn't itself an adaptation of another medium)?

No, Zombie Plague is one instance.

Wild West Exodus also launched with a comic - although it is technically a miniatures game and not a board game - so never mind.

To me, Dead of Winter is very much an adaptation of The Walking Dead, so this wouldn't be a first. However, it would be the first comic that's based on a board game that's based on a comic.

There are also Magic: The Gathering comic books (I know, Magic isn't a board game, but as a tabletop game, it's close).

It would be hilarious if there were an explanation on how Sparky the Stunt Dog is able to use a gun and other tools in the comic.

Really, though, hype. I adore Dead of Winter for its storytelling elements and I'm super looking forward to the story based on the game.

YES! - First comic of a board game of a comic - genius.

Nice work.
