The cover looks great and it's actually a slipcase.
Almost all aspects of the movie are covered. There are the Avengers themselves with their new costume designs, Loki, The Chitauri, flying leviathans and other characters like soldiers, Nick Fury, etc. The art is great and these are all printed big. The characters are mainly drawn by Andy Park and Charlie Wen. Most look very much like the actors. The Iron Man design is, as usual, amazing. There are also a few pages of Hulk art which are new obviously since there are no Hulk movie art books.
Many locations, props and vehicles are featured as concept art. You'll see Bruce Banner's hideout home, Tony Stark's tower a breakdown of the technology that suit him into Iron Man or un-suit him, the warehouse where Black Widow was held, the Helicarrier and its interiors and even the tunnel Loki escaped in. The props are all sort of gadgetry shown in the movie, stuff like Hawkeye's bow, other weaponry, a sequence of Tony Stark suiting up into Man VII in mid-air. There is a lot to see because some pictures are filled with details. The visuals are spectacular.
I think the layout is slightly chaotic because there's a lot going on with so many characters and big set pieces. The content is presented chronologically as they appear in the movie.Read more ›
The only thing about this book is that it seems to skimp a bit on art for the alien race: The Chitauri. Some of the best work in the book are the designs for these creatures...I wish they would have given us a bit more. I love the renderings for the character "The Other"....very creepy! I also wished they would have had some sketches of "The Mystery Villain" from the mid credits scene (I don't want to spoil the surprise for anybody who hasn't seen the film).
If you have any of the previous art of Marvel books and enjoy them, there is no reason you shouldn't love this book. Like the others, this book comes in a high quality sturdy slipcase. The design and quality of the book is really nice, although I wish the pages were a little thicker. All this stuff is pretty nit picky. If you love the design and art of movies or Marvel movies you will love this book!
The production values for the book are top notch. The book comes in a hard slipcase with the cover art printed onto it, without dust jacket, as issued. The pages are thick and glossy, and the book is well laid out. The designers were careful not to have images broken across pages (one of my biggest gripes with art books), and there's a nice balance of screen shots from the film to contrast against the artist images. This turns out to be a great book for film fans and art fans alike. And I fully intend to get The Art of Marvel Studios, which collects the art books from the previous films in one set. Highly recommended!
Please see my pictures of the actual book I received, with slipcase.
