An amazing collection nearly 20 years in the making, UDON Entertainment proudly announces the impending release of 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! 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
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. Capcom art
book was ever printed in Japan! 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 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!”
