Amongst the vast sea of designer and customized playing cards that have been released, John Littleboy has one of the most intriguing ones both in terms of artwork and concept.

John Littleboy is a talented artist who has customized a series of playing decks that can be enjoyed for all. The artwork itself is fantastic as it has that rough, gritty cartoon aesthetic that you'd often see in graphic novels. But what is it about the art that sets itself apart?

If you put these cards in sequence, they will actually tell a story. Each of the visuals have been designed specifically as a lead-in to the next card. So before you unwrap these and use them in a game of poker, take the time to go through the deck in order and watch the story unfold. Stats for Storytelling Game Decks Trending: Older & Mild
