This is one fine artbook to accompany the second Captain America movie. It's as good as the first artbook The Art of Captain America: The First Avenger. I like both books.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The Art of the Movie still comes with a slipcase. Inside, the 232-page hardcover book has the Winter Soldier facing off Captain America on the cover. That's the art for the limited edition poster released at San Diego Comic Con 2013, and it's in the book.

And just like the earlier artbook, this is also packed with lots of artwork.

You'll get to see Captain America with his new suits, the stealth one he used on The Lemurian Star ship, the old (but updated) suit he stole from his own memorial while Stan Lee was working a security guard there, and also the other suit variations.

The other characters with more coverage would be The Winter Soldier and Falcon. These two have more pages dedicated to their costume designs. Together with Captain America, they have the best costumes. As for Black Widow, Nick Fury, the pirates, mercenaries, they only have too few pages among themselves.

There are quite a lot of scene paintings, and those look great. Many are double page spreads.

Environment art are for The Triskelion, the offices inside, Helicarrier Bay and Camp Lehigh. There aren't a lot of prop art. Strangely, there's no overall shot of the Helicarrier, although we have Nick Fury's awesome SUV.

There is substantial amount of storyboards included for several key scenes, but they will leave you wanting more because the sequences are quite long and the full length storyboards cannot be included. They are real cool to look at though, to relive the moment.

The first Captain America art of book surprised me in how well designed and interesting it was. It incorporated a lot of comic history into not only the concept art, but the final film design. This book continues that, but with less emphasis on the comic origins; that is, there's not as much "history" included.

Just like Marvel's Thor: The Dark World - The Art of the Movie, this one is laid out chronologically vis-á-vis the film. Cap's redesigned costume is given an overview, as is Black Widow's, but where the book really shines is with the Winter Soldier and Falcon. Bucky's section is especially interesting because he's the only modern character in the film. The Winter Soldier was created in the late 2000's, unlike Cap and Falcon who have been around for 50+ years. In the comics, he has a domino mask and the concept artists pay homage to that with the military ant-glare paint around his eyes under the goggles. The design and physical implementation of his metal arm was very cool. Falcon also gets a lot of pages devoted to his design, and deservedly so. The various concepts for his wings are incredibly interesting as well as how the SFX render them in the film.

The other really strong point of the book is how physical locations, like the Triskellion and Smithsoneon, were conceptualized to fit real-world locations. The section on the museum has full page spreads of the murals drawn for the film, and has a beautiful fold-out rendering.

The best part of this book are the drawings.

The still images from the movie are great, but hey - I have already seen the movie. It is the drawings that make this book truly spectacular, the comic history they depict and explore. I adore the center fold-out, and the cover is simply AMAZING (features Bucky and Steve, metal arm slamming against shield scene). Very inspiring for the artist in all of us!

Comes very well packaged, inside a hard cover that protects yet another, drawn, hardcover.

Definitely get the hardcover version. Much more durable - and beautiful!

Format: Hardcover
This book is great at showing how Marvel went about creating the look and feel for this film. It has a lot of stuff on The Winter Soldier, Falcon, and Cap and even answered my question of "why didn't they just use the First Avenger uniform" in the ending of the movie. Unfortunately we don't get anything on Hydra in particular, and the storyboards while cool felt a little overused. The marketing section for the First Avenger was much more filled out and I wish they had at least included Paolo Rivera's poster like the first one did. These minor problems aside this is still a 5 Star book. Everything from the Helicarriers and the Lemurian Star to Fury's SUV to Widow's Stingers look fantastic. Oh and I almost forgot - the chapter on the Cap Exhibit in the museum was one of my favourites and has a fold out page of the murals. This book is full of awesome :)

As some one else has said there is quite a few pages dedicated to storyboard, but there's also a lot of concept art, photos from the movie itself, and information on everything done throughout the movie. It's a gorgeous book and comes in a great slipcover case, with beautiful artwork everywhere. I love it.
