Includes all the information of how characters came to be through the minds of the creators themselves!

Chalk full of colorful official art, I couldn't put it down, and had to read all the developer comments on the irregular hunters and irregulars.

I've been a Mega Man fan since the Nintendo days, but I became a HUGE Mega Man fan once I played Mega Man X on the SNES!

Mega Man X: Official Complete Works is actually a half of the 336-page Japanese art book "R20" which was published in March 2008 to celebrate Mega Man's 20th anniversary. It's nice to have Capcom translate the book into English. The other half is Mega Man: Official Complete Works

This book retains the paperback format, low gloss pages and layout. The cover has a glossy embossed Mega Man X printed against a matte cover. It's very beautiful and X pops out nicely. This book has 144 pages compared to the Mega Man volume which has 200 pages.

There are both good and bad in releasing the original book as two volumes in English. The bad, of course, is the higher price. The good is the it's thinner and more friendly to the book spine. By comparison, my 320-page "SF20: The Art of Street Fighter", also from Capcom, has slight creases when I open the book wide.

The art inside is arranged by chronological order. The book is filled with colourful character designs, sketches and illustrations from game covers, manga and other merchandise. The variety is amazing. The pages are packed with so many versions of powered up Mega Man X, the bosses and enemies.

The designs are beautiful and detailed. I've never actually played Mega Man X before so this book isn't as nostalgic as the other volume, but whatever you can think of is probably found in this book.

Accompanying the designs are lots of quotes from the Japanese artists. They talk about the characters, ideas, and you can gain some interesting insight into their working environment.

Format: Paperback
This book is not rare nor should cost this much, this entire book is being flaunted as a rarity, these sellers should be ashamed.

Don't believe me? I went out and bought it at this week for $45 along with the classic collection for $26.

Here's proof of the fake rarity these sellers are using but its all false.
Link was removed, but google "SOLD OUT: Art of Darksiders, Mega Man X: OCW, Monster Hunter Illustrations" and see the truth yourself.

The company is reprinting more, and they even admit surprise to such high prices, Do yourself a favor and wait. The Shops selling this as a rarity will soon sob in realizing their secret is out and prices will fall to normal levels. So just go out away from big company names selling books, and go to comic, anime, or other stores and buy it at a normal $45 dollars.

The book itself is actually quite good from designs and history with good info, love the book hate the price hikers.

This thing is chock full of information, art, and commentary. It's really cool! There's a lot of blurbage from Inafune and you can see and feel how much love he put into the X series (until 6, hah). Any Megaman X fan is sure to love and enjoy this. It packs so much into a 144 pager! I highly recommend getting it with Mega Man: Official Complete Works, as originally they were part of the same book, like other reviewers have said.

How a big fan I love all games and concepts about MegaMan. Since I was a kid, MegaMan created a new perpective to make characters and this would be maked with robots. The X series demand adult questions and governent lessons about Mavericks and Reploids.

I'm a cosplayer so this book is definitely a huge help to me. I'm planning on doing Black Armor Zero and the drawings have given me great ideas for how to pull it all off.

This art book is amazing! It has a lot of illustrations notes from the artist. There are more sketches drawings to finish art works. It mentioned all the X series from different platform game systems. The layout design of the covers from front to back and inside the book is beautiful detail work. It's worth getting this book to have in the bookshelf, since it has amazing and beautiful art!
