** 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

That is a very nice service to the artists. Near as I can tell the artists themselves get paid for the originals and ship them direct. I only hope the artists receive a large portion of the proceeds to boot!

I just got my copy of DCC #35 the other day; I do agree--the maps are great, the modules (#35A & #35B) are pretty good, the gazeteer has got just enough info to start the wheels turning for more adventures, . . . and yes, I did pay retail (US$69.95 + 7% sales tax).

And it's worth every penny.

** my usual periodic bump **

So, by my count, Dee got the cover for DCC #36, but not a single old-school artist has been called on since. And Goodman has DCCs up to #42 listed on their site. That's a trend I don't like ...

BTW, the writer for DCC #41 is listed as "Smaugdragon." Does anyone know what that is about? Inside joke? Place-holder text?

Jim Holloway told me that he had one coming up. When that will be who knows? The covers are okay, but I would be happier with a Roslof, Dee, Holloway group.

Thanks for the bump. I did my first serious look at the Goodman Games site. I think I'll get one of the new ones, it's just that I'm concerned that I'll decide   to buy more, and I'm trying to stay OD&D, AD&D and Basic. Maybe just one module...

Well, it's not new art, but Erol and others will be featured in this electronic reprint:

DCC e-book collection

I also bring it up because it's an interesting idea. I mean, I would just send envelopes full of cash to Wizards if they would begin releasing ADD 1e modules in a professional CD or e-book format. And I know I'm not the only one, either ...

Okay, I can't take it any longer: the cover for DCC #45 is based on a piece of old-school AD&D 1e art, right?

It's driving me crazy

I'm at a loss; I can't seem to find it. And that's if I'm not imagining things in the first place. But I'd swear that that cover is an homage to an earlier piece of artwork.

Help ... me ...please ...

I don't think it's intentional, but it looks vaguely like the cover of the color T1 Village of Hommlet.  Pillars, green humanoidish thing reaching for someone.  Maybe that's not what you're thinking of, but it was the first thing that struck me.
