Capes, Cowls and Villains Foul -- Quick Bio — Cliffhanger

Capes, Cowls and Villains Foul -- Quick Bio — Cliffhanger

Watermarked PDF

The iconic comicbook artist, Herb Trimpe, passed away on April 13, 2015. In addition to all the stellar work he unleashed upon the comicbook world, Mr. Trimpe drew an illustration for our long-since out of print Silver Age superhero setting book, Omlevex back in '03. He was an amazing artist and a true gentleman.

To honor him and his impressive body of work, we have statted up Cliffhanger (the character he illustrated in Omlevex) for Capes, Cowls and Villains Foul. They are presented here in a free PDF mini-supplement, along with a summary of the Omlevex Universe.

Great tribute, excellent write-up. Makes me want to see more CCVF products, in fact. Like, maybe all of the Omlevex setting converted over? :)

Many thanks. Omlevex will eventually be converted over to CC&VF. We've even discussed doing full "decade" books, so fans can watch the setting evolve as it goes throughout the years.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
