D&D comicsIDW, the publisher of comic books based on Doctor Who, Transformers and G.I. JOE, has signed a deal with Hasbro and its subsidiary Wizards of the Coast to publish new Dungeons & Dragons comics.

The agreement also includes reprints of past D&D titles. In the ’80s and ’90s, DC held the D&D license. Comics based on the brand have also been produced at times by KenzerCo and Iron Hammer.

The new series, debuting in August with an introductory issue and launching monthly in November, will offer new stories as well as playable characters for the 4th Edition D&D roleplaying game. A series set in the expansion world of Dark Sun will debut in January 2011, and a Forgotten Realms series also is planned, as are omnibus graphic novels.

”We are delighted to partner with IDW,” Liz Schuh, brand director for Dungeons & Dragons, said in a statement on Comic Book Resources. “Together, we will bring great D&D stories to our fans, told through IDW’s high quality comics.”

Longtime D&D artist Wayne Reynolds will supply launch cover art.
