10 Cult Classic Post Apocalyptic Cover Art Pieces As Inspiration For Your Old School Campaigns

So here's what a recent Google image search turned up for vintage Post Apocalyptic  cover art.Most of this stuff is very iconic and as a result is no way meant as a challenge or as a theft of the copyrights or trademarks of the original holders. 
There's some great stuff here and its gold for mining for your next POA adventure!

 Added bonus for today!
Can you dig it?


  1. Keep up the great blogging, Needles. I remember how that Def-con 4 cover struck me back in the day when my family was working its way through the Sci-Fi rack at the local Beta rental store. Only later did I realise that it was because I had seen something much like it in one of my favourite books, Spacewreck: Ghostships and Derelicts of Space (Stewart Cowley, 1979). I think the untitled Angus Mckie piece was probably just ripped off for the movie, but who can blame them as it is one of the most evocative skeletal spacemen in the genre!

  2. Thanks Rainswept!
    That same piece by Angus Mckie also appeared in Space, Wars, Worlds, and Weapons. Also another couple of Stewart Crowley style books from the Seventies and early Eighties as well. I saw it I'd swear more then a few times on a couple of different sci fi and post apocalyptic movie VHS cover sleeves as cover art.
    Its a very evocative piece and personally its become something of a popculture icon to me in the early Nineties. I swear I should do an adventure with a bunch of random origins for that skeletal spacemen.
    Thanks for the comment and the idea. More to come!
