Space Gamer / Fantasy Gamer #79

I recently stumbled over the book "Space Gamer / Fantasy Gamer #79" and couldn't find anything in the forums here, so I decided to open a new thread for this book.




It was published by "Diverse Talents" in August/September 1987 and has a Kevin Eastman Cover which was also used on one of Kev's 25th anniversary editions.

I couldn't find any more details on the book, which belongs to the TMNT RPG series.

Here is all details I was able to find out about the book:

http://rifts.wikia.com/wiki/Space_Ga...ntasy_Gamer_79

and

https://index.rpg.net/display-entry.phtml?mainid=7856


Does someone have any more infos about this book? I think the book is quite interesting (like the Cowabungs Comics - TMNT Benefit book for example), because there is as good as no infos about it, as far as I can say.

That cover was first used for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures!" the second TMNT book published by Palladium Games; and also for the Palladium TMNT "Game Shield." Got any scans or pictures of the interior contents?

I'm super fortunate to own the original painting of this cover. It's been used for a number of things. To see a pic of the painting, check my gallery http://cafurl.com?i=20069. I wish I could get a scan but too large. One of my favorite all time images.

I took some pics of the TMNT content.
You can click on the pics for a bigger version.
I don't recall seeing some of this Eastman artwork at any other place than in this book. Especially the art on page 26 and 27.
The back cover is not a wraparound cover (like the awesome (!) picture scan which OA was posting above).

The art on pages 26 & 27 were printed as full page pin-ups in the first two TMNT RPG books from Palladium:
Spoiler:
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures!" & "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness"

Interesting that the Space Gamer contained original official Palladium RPG content. Cool find.
