Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Monster Cards (1982)
Sets 1, 2, and 4 are in the shop – for now at least – so I took the opportunity to take photos of the cards that caught my eye. Unlike most TSR art commissions, these monster renderings weren’t copied to death in other TSR publications. Some of these are quite good, which makes me wonder why they weren’t used in future Monster Manuals.

Each set had a monster or two that were not in the Monster Manual. Most of the new creatures are fairly obscure, and never caught on. But some did.
Below are the pics, with artist noted if I see their logo.
