In Your Face!

I remember coming across this awesome piece of old school post-apoc gaming art sometime back but for the life of me, I could not remember where I saw it. Then, I finally ran saw it in an edited post of Malcadon in the Mutant Future Wiki. Malcadon, did you do this piece? If so, please accept my heartfelt thanks. You did great!

As I sit here waiting for the baby to sleep and garner inspiration for my Friday Mutant Future game, my thoughts turn to Jack Kirby and Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth. I've just finished exchanging angst with a cousin who's visiting from overseas, I'm exhausted as hell, seeing double, and have a ton of stuff to tackle on the morrow.

And this piece of In-Your-Face art is the just the very thing I need to get me looking forward to a game and get me through the work week. Jack Kirby. Kamandi. And my game is going to rock harder than it ever had before!


  1. Yes, I did make that motivational.

    I been noticing the sudden popularity of the Kamandi comics with GW fans. For years, Thundarr has been the mascot for the GW fanship, but since his appearance on Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Kamandi has taken the fanship by storm. I made it, based on the famous Thundarr motivational ("Gamma World: Demon Dogs!") to express this recently uncovered gem. The words came naturally to me, and the only hard part was finding the most wild-ass cover to convey the wackiness of the fiction - not so much finding a good one, but settling on just one. ;P

    I'm trying to full-out the wiki with inspirational materials, so I can introduce players to obscure or overlooked fiction. The Wiki is a bit of a clutter, but I'm working as best as I can to square it up. Its good to see my effort is paying off.

    I'm glad you really enjoyed it, thanks! =D
