Marvel vs Capcom is one of the most epic crossovers ever. I like the idea of two universe of characters pitting against each other.

When I first saw the game at the arcade, I was amazed by the team roster, the number of characters you can choose from. It was crazy. It still is. All of them have epic special moves you'll never see in comics.

This is a 192-page artbook published by Udon. It's available in both paperback and hardcover. The hardcover edition is available only on Udon store, and it cost more than twice. The hardcover edition is limited to 500 copies and 200 were sold out on the first day at San Diego Comic Con 2012.

Udon has generously mailed me both the paperback and hardcover editions to review. The paper they use is quite thick. For the paperback edition, be careful not to open it too wide so as not to crack the spine. The hardcover comes with a dustjacket whose art is different from the paperback.

Unlike most other Udon artbooks, this is an original that's not translated from any Japanese edition.

The video game titles featured are:

- 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
- Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom

There's a tribute gallery drawn by fans, splash pages, promotional art, character designs from all the different games, trailer screenshots, sketches, character profiles and ability card designs (not sure what are those).

The book is packed with great art. Almost all the splash pages are illustrations of characters battling out with one another.

The artwork in this book really make's me remember the good old times at the arcades in school.
I'm a fan of Street Fighter art especially the Alpha series which I grew up with. I really recommend this artbook if you're a fan of the series or if you just love artbooks.

I own three books published by UDON ENTERTAINMENT, and this one compared to the others is bad actually, the paper they choose for the interiores it's too thick, it's at least twice as thick as the one used in Darkstalkers Official Comlete Works for example. wich makes it hard to go throug. There is not as much official artwork like in The Darkstalkers series or The Stree Fighter series, so they use a lot of filler to reach the 190 pages the book is made of. Theres a big section of tribute art, that in all honesty it's very subpar, there are some very amateurish pieces that just don't belong next to SHINKIROS'S perfectly polished work. And sadly they decided not go full spread with the few good artwork pieces they had unlike other titles previously mentioned, theres a thick white margin around them that just make the images look even smaller when they could of dix this so easily, they hace done it before.

On the good side, there is a good section of never seen before production designs and sketches that i can't get enough. They are the most interesting to me.

Can't recommend it too much, buy if cheaper than regular price.

This was a gift for my son as he is quite a collector and illustrator. He was thrilled. The book's illustrations are amazing.

Everything about this book was awesome for a MvC player like me to go through. The art was superb, and it was interesting to see what was going through the developer's minds as they came up with ideas for the games (I was surprised to see a Punisher game in there!) However, my only complaint was that movelists for all of the characters should have also been included in this book. I know it's an art book first and foremost, but it's the only thing keeping this otherwise great book from feeling complete.

Do recommend!

When Udon puts together the format, the layout of their art books, graphic novels and such it's usually pretty good. I just wish they physically put it together well. This is the second book I have received from Udons line up with a spine that holds up as well as a wet noodle!

Great art. This is my favorite videogame franchise. I love Marvel and Capcom. It has artwork from almost every Marvel game that Capcom has produced, including some rare works, and older works. The artist Bengus is the man. Shinkiro is totally freaking amazing as well.
