Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The quality of the paperback editions is terrible. The printing quality is fine, but the paper weight is horrendous. It is thin and flimsy (both the covers and interior pages) and the books collapse under their own weight because of this. You can't hold the books up to read without them flopping and curling over. I'm afraid to handle them because I fear I will tear the tissue-thin pages! I've had plenty of paperback how-to books that are about the same size (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Photographic Journal, the Making of the Indiana Jones Movies are the most recent ones I got) and bigger, and they are much more sturdy as they are made with a heavier cover and interior pages stock.

My advice is to spring for the hardcover editions even though they are much more expensive. The paperbacks are very disappointing since they are practically impossible to handle.

This is a set of four art books from Marvel movies. Each of the books was sold separately, although you'll find that it probably cheapest to buy them together in this bundle. Also, the thick outer slip box is exclusive to this set, as is a folded poster that's included as well. I own the Hardcover Editions, and would recommend that version - although a bit more expensive, it's higher quality and will be easier to control.

These books are big and heavy, and the pages are full of vibrant colors. Photos are mostly high quality. The images used in the books includes conceptual artwork, paintings, and CG models. You will also find plenty of set photos and stills from the movies. There are also marketing/promotional materials, such as movie posters. One of the great things about these books is that there are a lot of alternate designs/art that did not make it into the movie - so you can see how the production design progressed over time.

*****

Below is a detailed list of the imagery you'll find in the books:

IRON MAN - Iron Man: The Art of Iron Man the Movie (Graphic Novel Pb)
- Iron Man suit concept art
- Photos of the Iron Man helmet and other pieces of armor
- Iron Monger concept art
- Jarvis/HUD
- Tony's Workshop & Malibu Home
- Stark's cars/jet
- Storyboards from various sequences in the movie

IRON MAN 2 -

That's right! Don't pay those inflated secondary market prices for the Art of Iron-man books. Both original hardcovers for "The Art of Iron-Man" and "The Art of Iron-man 2" are included in this set! Note that the individual slip covers for the Thor and Captain America art books are not included.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is great! It is the way these Marvel comic movies should have been made all along. I wish so bad that Marvel would get the film rights back for X-Men, Spiderman and Fantastic Four and reboot them. Fox has done ok with some of these films but they are very inconsistent and often times horribly miscast or horrible written...with a few exceptions.

The reason Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America work so well is the great casting (Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Edward Norton Bruce Banner....on and on), Awesome Sci-Fi Effects and top quality graphics, great stories, adapt comics to film well, and the great sense of humor.

These films aren't like the Christopher Nolan Batman series. You can't take that angle with these films. They are a different kind of story, to grand to be brought down to our level, so why not embrace the sci-fi element and make them more fantastical. That's why I think these films are so successful. What these books display is how great the art and design are, which is one of the things I love most about these films. This set is a must have! It collects all these great books in hardcover editions in one beautiful set. This is the best way to get all these books in one shot for a great price...this will no doubt be a collectors set that will be highly valued when out of print...so get two!

I collect "art of" books for films and this set is at the top of my collection for quality. Great concept art, writing, all the behind the scenes stuff artists like to look at...Don't miss out on this set!

MARVELOUS. That's what this collection of MARVELS movie art books should have been titled. It is truly GREAT. Iron Man I & II, Captain America, Thor; If you liked those movies and you enjoy movie art books then this a collection for you.

Right now, Marvel Studios is on a roll. Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America are three of the best comic book movies ever. Iron Man 2 has its problems but it is still a strong sequel in many ways. The Art of Marvel Studios gives insight into the world and production of these movies. There are reviews of the books individually so I won't go into details. What isn't mentioned in the book's description is that it includes an almost movie sized "bonus" poster of the slipcase artwork that is approximately 36" x 22". As the Art of Iron Man and the Art of Iron Man 2 are out of print and very expensive. This collection is a really good deal at the price Amazon is now offering. The books are basically must haves for fans of the films and the lead up to The Avengers.
