Marvel Vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works Now In-Stores!

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM®: OFFICIAL COMPLETE WORKS

 Two Titanic Universes Collide In This Spectacular New Artbook!

SOFT COVER EDITION NOW AVAILABLE

TORONTO, CANADA: An amazing collection nearly 20 years in the making, UDON Entertainment proudly announces that Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works is now available! This is a brand-new art book collecting all of the official artwork, sketches, and bonus material from all of Marvel and Capcom’s video game collaborations—from 1993’s The Punisher arcade game right up to 2012’s smash-hit Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for the PLAYSTATION 3, PSP, and X-BOX 360 platforms!

Compiled by UDON with the help of Capcom and Marvel, this is the first time this material has ever been collected in one place — on either side of the Pacific! Weighing in at nearly 200 pages, Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works has been a labour of love for the UDON production team. Working closely with Capcom creative head Shoei Okano, UDON has dug deep through CAPCOM’s archives to find extremely rare high-resolution art and materials to put together for this project — no easy task considering no Marvel vs. Capcomart book was ever printed in Japan!

Includes stunning artworks by Akiman, Bengus, Shinkiro, Joe Madureira, Adi Granov, and more! Complementing the classic pieces are an all-new gallery of stunning Marvel vs. Capcom illustrations by comics superstars including Joe Ng, Long Vo, Chamba, Adam Warren, and Takeshi Miyazawa!

“This book means a lot to UDON,” says Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Erik Ko. “It was back 10 years ago that Joe Quesada at Marvel Comics gave UDON our first freelance job, and kick-started our creative services department. Then just a few years later, we became our own publisher, working closely with Capcom to publish original Street Fighter® comics! Being able to publish a book containing amazing work from both Marvel and Capcom is like a big ‘thank you’ from us to the folks who helped make us what we are today. Thank you Marvel, thank you Capcom!”
