An amazing collection nearly 20 years in the making, UDON Entertainment proudly presents Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works! 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 Xbox 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 labor 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 this project — no easy task, considering no Marvel vs. Capcom art book was ever printed in Japan!
Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works includes stunning artworks by Akiman, Bengus, Shinkiro, Joe Madureira, Adi Granov, and more! Complementing the classic pieces is an all-new gallery of stunning Marvel vs. Capcom illustrations by several comics superstars, including Joe Ng, Long Vo, Chamba, Adam Warren, and Takeshi Miyazawa!
“This book means a lot to UDON,” says UDON 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!”
Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works made its international debut at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Wednesday, July 11th, in an exclusive hardcover edition that quickly sold out! The hardcover features an exclusive wrap-around cover drawn by UDON and Marvel vs. Capcom artist Alvin Lee and digitally painted by UDON`s Genzoman. A standard-format soft cover release will follow in November 2012, distributed by Diamond to comic and bookstores everywhere.
