Hey, is there a really good site to see pics and descriptions of old Judge's Guild modules and things? I remember having a few items back in the day that were pretty neat. I'm pretty sure one of 'em had a description of an aardvark barbarian race (ala Cerebus the Aardvark). Anyone remember that?

The list for the most part is fairly accurate and complete.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Someone else around here knows about the short, grey obnoxious one... ;)

Anyhows; heya, bud!

You want Dungeoneer #14, I think, rather than any of the modules...
Excellent article by Paul Jacquays with Dave Sim artwork :P
Plus Steve Marsh RQ cults and other goodies... ;)

( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5169067043 is a good option, IMHO. Friendly seller, too).

"Number appearing: 1-20" *eeps* (Paul was obviously not filled in by Dave on the long-term plot!).

The Aardvarkian world from the earlier issues made for a few excellent scenarios, here; most memorably one of the sponsored 24 hour efforts I used to run at university. Was very much fun!
(Beware of the annoyance factor of "people" with tall pointy hats, though...! 8) *chuckles*)

*yay*

Been a Cerebus fan for many a year, although mostly the really early stuff. I've even got a Cerebus figure.

Hmm... maybe you're right. Kinda sounds familiar.

Still don't get why a lot of people look down on the first "phonebook".

Rough edges to begin with and definitely parody; but very wonderful parodies indeed!

The barbarian one, I presume?

Is certainly one of the more valuable minis in existence, weight-for-weight :D



(Just missed out on the set of four by under a dollar, last time; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 2293154678 )



You're welcome to the next #1 that comes up, btw. Hurt the wallet, that did...

*returns to hunt for missing issue (#4, I say)*

Agreed. In fact, when the storylines got heavier is when I started losing interest.



The only Cerebus issues I currently own are #7 and a compilation that contains 5, 6, 7 and 8. I'm not a big comics collector anymore.

Yep, that's the one. Had no idea it was valuable though.



I also have a fighter duck figure with a huge sword. Used to own the entire collection of Fineous Fingers figures too, but those got lost. :(

No, actually. I looked at the eBay entry and intended on buying it later, but when I went back it was already snatched. So I made due with a few individual issues. I did get #14 though, the one with the aardvark article! w00t!



I haven't been going overboard. But there's an auction for a City State of the World Emperor set that's currenty up to $31... I'm debating how high I wanna go with that one. I have very fond memories of that suppliment.

I thought, "oooh, two good copies I will be sure to get one...." and so I thought I was bidding high on $25 or so...

I was half-tempted by that one when it first appeared with another in a mixed lot a few weeks back.

Didn't get enough confidence-building feedback on the other items the seller had in that lot (and a couple of others), though.

Seems though it worked out OK in the end.



Would still like to know how "interesting" the 'zine is, if poss. ;)

I'll let you know when I get it David. Shame I didn't get the other one.

thx :)



Looks like neither of us was lucky with the two early titles Frank had up for sale, though :(

(Pity; since I know Steve Marsh made refs. to the Quick Quincy Gazette in the docs I've got here).
