5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible team roster and art
Customer Video Review     Length:: 1:14 Mins
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible team roster and art, September 19, 2012
This review is from: Marvel VS Capcom: Official Complete Works (Paperback)
Length:: 1:14 Mins

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. They are drawn by artists like Akiman, Joe Madureira, Kinu Nishimura, Shinkiro, Gouda Cheese (Bengus), Miho Mori and others.

The character art from each game differs in style and that's quite interesting to see and compare. The character profiles have short descriptions for each character and the games they appeared in. Wolverine actually appeared in all the games. Unfortunately, they didn't show many battle ground environment art.

Unless you're a serious collector, the paperback edition should suffice and is a good deal for the money.

It's a wonderful artbook for fans of the Marvel vs Capcom games, fighting games.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

This review is from: Marvel VS Capcom: Official Complete Works (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, thorough book!, March 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Marvel VS Capcom: Official Complete Works (Paperback)
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!
