Checker RPG Floods the World with Superheroes


From Checker Book Publishing —


Checker Book Publishing Group has released 70 new images from a projected total of 700 images to appear in the new edition of fan favorite rpg, Superhero 2044. Superhero 2044 was the first comic book themed role playing game at the dawn of the role-playing industry and the artists that Checkerbook is bringing to the table are impressive. Sean Chen (Avengers, Captain America) Herb Trimpe (The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine) Jamie Tyndale (Assasin’s Creed, Godzilla), Ernie Chan (Conan, Dr. Strange), Daniel Kamarudin (Whill of Agora) Bob McLeod (Wonder Woman, New Titans),and dozens more are included.
“Our goal is to upgrade the entire system and game to be the pinnacle of super hero gaming art included”, said Publisher Mark Thompson. “To bring back a legend is no easy task and today’s art in every aspect of pop culture is drop dead gorgeous. We know we have to bring our A game. We were well into production when I had to put the company on hold to take care of my family. Much of the production is already complete and it’s all too awesome to keep to myself.”
Superhero 2044 will be crowdfunding production for both a role playing game and card game based on the world. The first campaign should launch in August 2017.
Contact sheets attached while normal sized imagery will be available for viewing and dissemination on Checker BPG pages located on Facebook, Twitter, Deviant Art, Pinterest, and Instagram.
