Seriously, you guys. If you're a fan of Marvel Vs. Capcom or any of Capcom's Marvel games, you're going to want to have a tissue handy when you read this.
UDON Entertainment has just announced the publication of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works, which will debut at Comic-Con on July 11. This nearly 200-page art book will collect all kinds of artwork, sketches and bonus material from all of Marvel and Capcom's collaborations from The Punisher arcade game right up to Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. That includes stuff like X-Men: Children of the Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men Vs. Street Fighter, and more!
"This book means a lot to UDON," says Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Erik Ko. "It was back 10 years ago that Joe Quesada at Marvel Comics gave UDON our first freelance job, and kick-started our creative services department. Then just a few years later, we became our own publisher, working closely with Capcom to publish original Street Fighter®comics! Being able to publish a book containing amazing work from both Marvel and Capcom is like a big 'thank you' from us to the folks who helped make us what we are today. Thank you Marvel, thank you Capcom!"
Marvel Vs. Capcom: Official Complete Works will first be available at Comic-Con, but the catch is that it's a special exclusive hardcover edition that won't be sold in stores. It's $100, and only 200 of them will be available during the show. So for those of you unable to attend Comic-Con with an extra Benjamin in your pocket, you'll have to wait until November, when the $44.99 softcover is released to stores. Sorry!
