Recent trading card art includes the Star Wars Galaxy sets, Universal Monsters’ Incredible Shrinking Man subset, a Robin subset in the Batman: Saga of the Dark Knight trading card series, a complete set of 98 painted trading cards for the Skybox Masterseries: Malibu Ultraverse, nine cards in the Skybox/DC Masterseries, a 25 card subset in the Skybox Masterseries: Creators Edition and artwork for the accompanying CD-ROM game, and a card set of his art called The Best of Dave Dorman: Chromium.

Aliens: Tribes, an award-winning illustrated novel featuring 24 of his full paintings is available in hardcover and has been released as a trade paperback.
