I like the Tribute series from Udon. This one's as good as Street Fighter Tribute and Darkstalkers Tribute.

The book is 304 pages thick. No dust jacket. The paper is thick low gloss type, thicker than Darkstalkers Tribute. Binding is good (thankfully).

Due to the success of earlier Tribute series, there are over 2500 entries submitted for this book but only close to 300 are selected.

The variety is incredible, from vector to manga, to 3D model to actual handmade dolls and paper toys. I like the Tribute series because I enjoy looking at the different interpretation by different artist. In a fan art book like this, there are lots of pleasant surprises, artistic style that are wildly different from official game art.

The quality of art is also very high. All the artists and their website are just below their illustrations which is really convenient if you want to learn more about the artist.

I used to play the game, the earlier series, so this book sure brings back some memories. It features art mainly from the original series, but there are also some art for Mega Man X, Zero, ZX and Legends. The other series probably can have a tribute book on their own.

This is a fantastic art book for fans and art lovers.

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

Truly, who doesn't love Mega Man? The Mega Man brand name has produced some of the most exciting, excellently designed titles in the entirety of video game history, regardless of which series you consider. Everyone has some sort of special memory in their heart for Mega Man, and for those who consider him to be one of their most beloved video game franchises, buy this book immediately! It is, in its entirety, a real masterpiece of an art book.

First off, this book has about 300 pages, most of which have one big piece of fanart devoted to Mega Man. It's a very nice format that puts the focus purely on the art, with a small bit of text at the bottom with a little info on the artist. The variety of art styles here is amazing, and when you consider these 300 people were selected from over 2,500 submissions for the book, rest assured you are going to be treated to some incredible pieces of visual wonderment. You can expect to find some pieces you'll love more than others, but almost all bring something meaningful to the table in terms of artistic merit. I can't help but have a huge smile plastered over my face while going through this book. It's obvious each artist truly has a passion for the blue bomber, and it showed in their art. This is a book by fans for fans, and for that, it is one of the best art books I have ever seen. No joke. The printing done was fantastic too. The paper is high-quality and the colors are so vivid, it truly compliments and fulfills the original vision each artist had in mind when crafting their submissions. Bravo Udon!

There's also a fairly impressive variety of series that are represented in this book as well. A huge portion is devoted to the classic Mega Man series, obviously.

The art work in here is unquestionably beautiful. I spent about 2+ hours enjoying the different takes of the Blue Bomber. When I received the book it was in immaculate condition. HOWEVER the binding is very weak to hold such a massive collection of art work and the pages are of top quality giving each page some weight, thus the pages will, your first time through break away from the spine. The book stays together, it's not leaving the cover but it did break away from it a bit and more so as you look through it over and over again.

I highly recommend this book for any art fan and especially any Mega Man fan, just be aware that the binding will break first time through with this soft cover edition. I should have spent the extra money one the hardcover library binder edition and will for future books of this magnitude in the future.

Bought this for my 13 year old son for Christmas and it was an immediate hit! Once he opened it, he looked through the entire book before opening any other gift. And now he is going back through it again, this time more slowly ;-). There are images that he loves and some he's not so crazy about, but he is getting the biggest thrill telling me what he thinks about them all. While not everyone would appreciate the various artists' take on their favorite Megaman character, most fans will enjoy this book for what it is...seeing the classic video game hero through another fan's eyes. Pretty spectacular.

My son likes the manga and classic images like the 1st two pics below. He laughs at "distorted" images like the 3rd pic.
