Granted, they do look worse and less detailed than Edwards' original paintings, but at least they got the horizontal extension going for them. The ROTWL artwork is signed "Talbot", anybody know which artist that is? From the looks of it I'd say he painted the (US-)KK artwork as well.



I believe that was Jim Talbot. He was an illustrator for Milton Bradley in the late 80s to mid 90s. But don't quote me, short of asking him directly I don't know for certain.

Ah, sounds like it could be him. Thanks for the info!

I was hoping they'd be in there, but unfortunately only those three above are.

And HERE is the uncompressed PNG of that image. No poster-sized image yet.

I had a huge HeroQuest poster as a kid, and like an idiot I just threw it away when I grew older :( :x :oops: :cry:
It was mint condition in a glassed frame. And I replaced it with a Britney Spears poster.

Me 20 years later:
