“We’re very excited to be working with the team at Asmodee on this project, and on such an iconic, global brand,” says Rich Young, vice president, creative and managing editor, Ablaze. “We are planning to deliver something unique and fun here, that I think fans of the game and graphic novel will both enjoy immensely.”
Characters from the game, including Dobbly, the anthropomorphic hand that features in the game’s logo, will appear in an original adventure story written by Derek Fridolfs and illustrated by Gabriele Bagnoli. Fridolfs is the New York Times bestselling writer of the Secret Hero Society series and the Eisner-nominated co-writer of Batman Li’l Gotham, and has worked for a range of publishers, including Scholastic, DC Comics, Disney and more.

“I am so very glad that with Rich and the Abaze team we found such a passionate partner,” says Alexander Thieme, licensing manager, Asmodee Entertainment. “Seeing the first art concepts and reading the first story bits show me that this project is going to be a very popular addition to the brand family and will bring old and new fans so much new joy.”
The Spot It! graphic novel will be available to retailers through Diamond Comics and Diamond Book Distributors and is due to launch in summer 2022.
