Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works

mvcocw-032There are only a few books that have come along in our 10 year career that have made us as excited as Marvel vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works. Taking over five years to put together, this original UDON production has no Japanese counterpart, and was sourced and assembled by us (with the help of the good folks at Capcom and Marvel, of course). Containing rare and never-before-seen artworks from all of Marvel’s and Capcom’s game collaborations, this book was met with thunderous support from the entire gaming community.

As UDON’s founder and Editor-in-Chief Erik Ko stated: “This book means a lot to us. 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!”

Debuting at San Diego Comic-Con with an exclusive hard cover edition featuring wrap-around artwork from Alvin Lee and Genzoman, the book sold out on Thursday–the first full day of the show! Picked as one of the must-have books of Comic-Con, fans ran into the exhibit hall first thing every morning to get one of the few copies we’d held back for daily sales… one guy even hid in the washroom! The few remaining copies of this print run continued to make a splash at PAX PRIME in September, and in UDON’s online store… just in time for the soft cover version to appear!

As a reminder, this book features include:

  • An original art book compiled by UDON, with no Japanese counterpart!
  • Includes all of the promotional artwork, a complete art archive of all Marvel vs. Capcom character drawings, and rare, never-before-seen artwork, sketches, and bonus material!
  • Contains artwork from the Capcom games The Punisher, X-Men: Children of the Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men VS Street Fighter™, Marvel Super Heroes VS Street Fighter™, Marvel VS Capcom, Marvel VS Capcom 2, Marvel VS Capcom 3, and Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3!
  • Includes 17 new illustrations exclusive to this book!
