Add Jim Roslof to the list of Dungeon Crawl Classics cover artists. DCC #28, due in February, will feature what I believe is Roslof's series debut:



404 Not Found



Off the top of my head, that's eight covers for EO, three for Dee, and one for Roslof. It's getting so you almost need a spreadsheet to track Goodman's recruiting of old-school TSR artists ... :)

Here I was, sitting happily in my life, just started a new campaign, and selling my Magic cards.....WHEN I find this Forum and start down another road of buying Dungeons and Dragons material. I thought, "I'm safe. I don't play that E3 stuff." But no, you guys mention Erol Otus and this Dungeon Crawl Classics thing. What's that...LIKE E1?!?! Gotta get me some. Damn u Dark Elves!



And damn u Dark Elvis too!

Okay, I think I've got it:

32 DCC modules have either been printed or announced, and ... :

**Eight have Erol Otus covers (this counts the same painting twice, once each for #3 and #3.5)

**Two have Jeff Dee covers;

**One has a Jim Roslof cover;

**Jim Holloway has no covers, but has done lots of interior art.

That's kicking it OLD-SCHOOL, baby! :)

**bumpity-bump-bump**

Wow, check out the Holloway art on this upcoming Goodman release:

DCC #1 revision

He's always been my least-favorite of all the "classic era" TSR artists, but I'll give credit where it's due: that's a rockin' painting.

^^ That is very cool. He has really matured stylistically from his early days. You can still tell it is his stuff but he is trying to put more time into his stuff and polish it more. In the older days, he was one of the workhorses at TSR. They pretty much expected him to produce far more stuff than the other artists.

I think it is great he is trying some fantasy stuff. He swore it off long ago.

Here's a checklist for the upcoming DCC #34:

* Crazy helmets? Check;

* Left-handed adventurers? Check;

* Strange, gigantic, totally OTT monster? Check;

* Combat scene with at least one adventurer getting his lunch handed to him? Check;

Why, then, it must have cover art by Erol Otus! :)

And it does: check out this great EO piece.

One thing I always loved about Erol Otus was the bell bottom plate mail.

Do you mean Jeff Dee? I hadn't noticed such stylistic excesses by Erol...

Dee definitely drew some bell-bottomed stuff over the years ... not sure about Erol.

Being a lefty, I was always happy to note the large percentage of Erol's adventurers who were southpaws. What's odd is that I had him sign a bunch of stuff at GenCon and now, for the life of me, I can't remember which hand he used. I'm drawing a complete blank.

According to Jim, he has another cover coming up sometime soon! That will give him three front covers and one back cover illustration! I know some people don't really care for his humorous side of things, but I think it does set him apart. He's numero uno in my book!  8)

He did one of those for me once. Didn't sign it, tho, so I can't prove it.

Put another mark in the Jeff Dee column. He got the call to do the DCC #36 cover.

** yet another bump **

For fans of the DCC series and/or the old-school art it features, the new Goodman catalog is worth a look. There's a nice four-page section toward the front that gives a visual overview of the series.

It's available for download; tell 'em Xaxie sent ya: Goodman catalog

Since you brought it up....I received my copy of DCC #35 today.  A copy of the catalog is included in this ginormous box set.  I dont buy much 3rd edition stuff but I do like the DCC items and have been picking up what I can when I can.  The artwork definitely figures into whether I buy something or not, and with all of these old-school artists doing these you can't go wrong.

I'll say it again...this box set is huge.  It weighs about five pounds, has four gorgeous maps, two separate modules, and two 100+ page books detailing the game world.  The box is extra-heavy cardstock and has a nice gloss to it.  I have seen a couple on Ebay with pretty cheap BIN's in the last couple of days for anyone that might be looking to pick one up for less than retail.

And no...I dont work for Goodman Games.   :P
