Dead Ball Cover Spotted

Amazon.com now boasts a cover for Dead Ball, the second in my trilogy of novels based on the Blood Bowl board game from Games Workshop. You can see a tiny copy it below and find a larger version by clicking on it.
Dead Ball
Ironically, while Googling for “Matt Forbeck” and “Dead Ball,” I stumbled upon some pages that mention Fast Break, a basketball CCG I designed for WildStorm Productions back in the mid-’90s. One card in the set was “Dead Ball,” and another was “Matt Forbeck.” We put a lot of the design and production team in the game as players, which makes me one of the few game designers I know of to have my own sports trading card, complete with an artist’s rendition of me taking it hard to the hoop.

  1. Hi Matt,

    I found your blog and just wanted to say hello! I’m the cover artist of the three blood bowl novels you wrote for Black Library. I had a lot of fun drawing them, hope you liked them as I did! Take a look to the rest of my art if you have a few moments, http://www.maxbertolini.com, I’ve also built a new guestbook and it would be great if you will sign it!

    All the best

    I signed your guestbook and checked out your site. Amazing stuff there. I’m thrilled to have such wonderful covers on the books. I haven’t seen the cover to the third book yet, but the first two are amazing. Thanks!
