One of our comics-retailer-pals got their invoices for next week, and the following UDON products are confirmed to be shipping:
DEC121258F ART OF BRUTAL LEGEND HC 49.99
DEC121259F GROWLANSER ART WORKS SC 39.99
JAN131294F MIDORI FOO BOOK OF PICTURES SC 44.99
JAN131297F TAKEHITO HARADA ART WORKS SC 39.99
That means better comic book stores everywhere will have these books in stock and ready for sale on March 27th!
These were delayed from the beginning of the month due to some pretty heinous shipping problems involving Chinese New Year and a flood of new materials being shipped from overseas all at the same time. We’re happy they’re ready to go now, and all of these books look AMAZING!
The Art of Brutal Legend is the most elaborate and largest art book we’ve ever produced!
Growlanser Art Works features stunning reproductions of illustrations by Satoshi Urushihara!
Midori Foo Book of Pictures is one of our most surprising and beautiful releases ever!
Takehito Harada Art Works 1 features tons of new illustrations by the famed DISGAEA illustrator, and amazing behind-the-scenes looks into how he creates his artwork!
To answer your questions before they come: No, Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Art Works is not listed. Because this book missed its shipping window, it had to go through a process called “Order Adjustment” at our distributor. This should only take a week, maybe 2 at most, and fingers crossed it will arrive in stores the first or second week of April. We’ll update the blog when we know for sure.
So for the next 4 days get ready for some amazing book previews as we try to prepare you for the awesome onslaught of artbook goodness coming your way next week…!
