Having bought two other Image Portfolios from this company and been very happy with the product, this one came as something of a disappointment.

I can't moan too much. I bought it because I was able to browse it on the RPGNOW preview (thanks for that feature, guys!) and it had an image I needed for a project I was working on. For this price, it's worth it even if you can only use a single picture. So I still got my money's worth.

The problem with the pack is two-fold. Firstly it is made up of a selection of drawings from various artists in vastly different styles. Some of these are not - in my opinion - up to the standard of other artists' work sold by this company. One in particular seems to have a desire to draw limbs in perspective but overdoes things making the figures distorted. The impression is that the company had a handful of pictures "left over" from other products and just lumped them all in together regardless of quality. I am unsure what the cartoon picture of the Fox with the zap-gun is doing in there!

Given this, we come to the second issue. You'd expect to either get more pictures than usual in such a "grab bag" or for the product to be cheaper. You actually seem to get fewer pictures for the same money.

If you're reading this to decide whether to buy it or not I'd say it's still worth the money if you've got it to spend. If you're producing Superhero stuff buy ALL the image portfolios - it's worth it. If you're on a budget, skip this one and buy one of the others - 1.03 and 1.21 are both good.

Good points: A few EXCELLENT pictures. Thse are worth the price alone. The open-ended license.

Areas to improve: A grab-bag of disparate styles with some pictures being virtually unusable. Fewer pictures for your money than other portfolios in the same range.
