mm25_print_proof_stack

As we announced at PAX East, UDON will be releasing MM25: MEGA MAN AND MEGA MAN X OFFICIAL COMPLETE WORKS this summer! The book is laid out and at the printers, and this week we got the printing proofs–essentially, a hi-res, laser colour printout of the entire book for us to look over for errors–and it’s a monster! UDON chief Erik Ko says this is the biggest printing stack ever, and I believe him!

While the final book won’t measure the 3 or 4 inches tall that this print stack does, it does hopefully give you an idea of just how BIG a deal MM25 is going to be! Replacing our Mega Man Official Complete Works and Mega Man X Official Complete Works, this 430+ page MONSTER faithfully reproduces the recently released Japanese edition, R20+5!

MM25: MEGA MAN AND MEGA MAN X OFFICIAL COMPLETE WORKS is a book that’s going to need to be on the shelf of every fan of the Blue Bomber, so make sure not to miss out! MM25 is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, and BarnesandNoble.com. It will be offered in the June DIAMOND PREVIEWS catalogue, code JUN131309, for items shipping to comic stores in August.
