Crom the GameBook


Have you ever wanted to be a barbarian in the times of legend? With this first book, you can! Either make your own character using the simple game system included, or play as Crom himself. 

This book is designed as a solo game experience using the restored art of Gardner Fox from the original Crom book, first published in 1950 in Out of this World #1. It is a linear adventure, in the style of choosing your own adventures.

If this does well, there will be more books like this from the Golden Age of comics, including space, detectives, and of course superheroes! The system is set up so that you can take the character you use here in the other books, in any order. Your barbarian can become a war hero!

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.
