GOODMAN GAMES TO PUBLISH OFFICIALLY LICENSED ADVENTURE MODULE ADAPTATION
OF “FRANK FRAZETTA’S DEATH DEALER: SHADOWS OF MIRAHAN”
Goodman Games is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with
the creators of the hit Image comic book series Frank Frazetta’s Death
Dealer to publish an adventure module adaptation entitled The Adventures
of Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan. The adventure
module will be published under the GSL license from Wizards of the Coast,
utilizing the Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition mechanics. The full-color
adventure module will feature cover art by Frank Frazetta as well as an
alternate-cover edition by Nat Jones and Jay Fotos. It is scheduled for
release in Spring 2009.
“Every fantasy fan knows Frank Frazetta’s work,” said Joseph Goodman,
President of Goodman Games. “When I first saw Frank Frazetta’s Death
Dealer on the stands last year, I had to pick it up. It is a powerful
story that’s beautifully illustrated, and it translates perfectly to the
action of a D&D game.”
“This is cool,” said Jay Fotos, co-creator of the series. “Being able
to play along on what we created in the comic series is another way for
fans to be more immersed in the Frazettaverse.”
“Frazatta’s works have never been equaled for their raw, visceral
power,” said Harley Stroh, staff writer for Goodman Games and author of
Adventures of Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan. “Many
have tried to tell the story behind his most iconic character, but they’ve
always fallen short. Jones and Fotos were the first to succeed. The Shadows
of Mirahan adventures make it possible for players to experience the
world of the Death Dealer, and – in a small way – live into Frazetta’s
powerful images. This is ‘sword and sorcery’ at its finest.”
Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer was Image Comics’ #1 best-selling
title in 2008, surpassing established brands to gain an instant fan base.
Based on the Death Dealer character created by Frank Frazetta, and created
by Jay Fotos, Nat Jones, and Joshua Ortega, the comic introduces a new
world of shadowed mystery and dangerous adventures. Its success has led
to several additional titles set in the same world of Mirahan. More information
on the comic can be found at www.myspace.com/frazettacomics,

Scheduled for release in Spring 2009, The Adventures of Frank Frazetta’s
Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan takes the players through the first
chapter of the Death Dealer saga, bringing them face to face with the demonic
armies of Mirahan as they race to save an empire.
Retailers will be able to order The Adventures of Frank Frazetta’s
Death Dealer: Shadows of Mirahan early next year under the Goodman
Games listing as SKU code GMG5371.
