By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 9 Oct. 2014
Format: Hardcover
UDON's Art of Capcom: Complete Edition is quite an artbook to behold. This is the largest artbook ever from Udon at 600 pages. Very impressive indeed.

The first thing to note is this is actually the compilation of two earlier artbooks from Udon, namely Udon's Art of Capcom (304 pages) released in 2007 and UDON's Art of Capcom 2 (284 pages) released in 2010. So if you have those two artbooks, you're going to see mostly duplicated artworks, and hence it's not going to be worth buying it again. If you don't have those two artbooks, then this is a great collection to get into Capcom art.

Unlike most of Udon's artbooks, this is a hardcover edition. The cover art is beautiful. Binding is great for a book this thick. The book looks and feels great overall. However, I feel that the paper is slightly thinner but not really a major issue. The reproduction quality is still top notch with good colours and sharpness.

The content in the book are arranged by the games, namely Street Fighter (342 pages), Darkstalkers (64 pages), Rival Schools (22 pages), World of Capcom (48 pages) and other game projects (119 pages). The edge of the pages are colour coded to these five sections.

The last section on other game projects is actually also based on the main games such as Street Fighter, Darkstalkers etc. The main difference is here the artworks aren't splash art pages but miscellaneous art like game sprites, ending cut scenes, environment art for the stages, comic panels based off the games, and other stuff.

The book is great, it has nice artwork and colour styles from various artists. It doesn't just contain street fighter characters and the quality and binding is amazing. It had even arrived much quicker than I had anticipated.

HASH(0x9c521360) out of 5 stars Udon's biggest artbook ever 9 Oct. 2014

So what's new?

Well, the new artworks are the ones created after 2010 when UDON's Art of Capcom 2 came out. It can be difficult to spot the new ones because artworks in the books are credited with the artist names and purpose but the year is usually left out. But from the few I know are new, they are the box art for Marvel vs Capcom 3 Collector's Edition, cover art for the hardcover limited editions artbooks, Marvel vs Capcom 2 promo art and storyboards, and a handful of others.

All in all, this is an amazing artbook. The art is fantastic and it's definitely value for money. Highly recommended.

If you're shipping this book out of USA, watch out for the additional weight surcharge just before you confirm your purchase. For overseas buyers, you might want to compare prices with your local bookstore and consider getting it locally, or get it from Book Depository where the shipping cost is included in the price.

HASH(0x9c5214bc) out of 5 stars Typical Udon Quality: Another Must-Have in the Collection! 1 Oct. 2014
By slateman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This and the recently-released SF:25 present buyers with a conundrum. Should I purchase this if I already have an earlier entry into the book series?

For many people, this purchase is simple. If you do not own Udon’s Art Of Capcom or Udon’s Art Of Capcom 2, run, do not walk, and purchase this. This hardcover collection is almost 600 pages in length, is presented on high-quality paper and is an anthology of a decade of wonderful artwork. I’m so glad Udon was given the helm of so much Capcom artwork, as their output is among the best art the gaming world has ever seen. There’s no question this is a must-have in your collection if you are fond on Street Fighter or Capcom games. And for perspective, Street Fighter comprises about 350 of those 600 pages.

The paper is just like the original versions and is printed on a thinner stock than SF:25. The binding is great but loose enough to enjoy flipping through. Some books I own are too tight to open up without worry. Not this one.

I highly recommend this if you don’t own a prior book. However, some of us already have one of those aforementioned Udon collections. What to do?

I own the first Udon’s Art Of Capcom but failed to purchase the second and then it went out of print and became awfully costly. Having seen the second collection, I will admit I prefer the art quality of the first book, but without owning it, I purchased this Complete Edition day 1. I do not regret it.

The same would go if you already had the second book but not the first. Buy this. The amount of art included is incredible.

However, if you have both, there are several noteworthy additions (and just a few drawbacks). First, the good:

The Complete Edition has 75 pages of brand-new material, including nine 25th Anniversary pieces that appear in neither. Those are all great, new, never-before-seen pieces. All this new art was organized in proper order, with SF, Darkstalkers, Rival Schools, World Of Capcom and Game Projects sections. Also, this is a hardcover and getting the originals in hardcover were harder to find. This looks *great* on my bookshelf. And it’s huge too.

The downside: In only a handful of cases, the art presented in the original books has been shrunk down. What was a pair of images on a page originally now is four in the Complete Edition. Very few times was this done. Also, the original first book had a Cover Illustration Tutorial about how it was made in Photoshop. This does not carry over. Also absent is the tribute art commentary of the originals. Each had a new piece with the artist’s comments on inspiration and technique. These are lost. I quite liked those (like the details in Darkstalkers: Official Complete Works) but they aren’t here. While that’s a drawback, no art is missing from this edition.

There is almost no question you need this in your library. The only reason to avoid this is if you have both Udon books already. While I think the first was superior in quality and content, the second had some amazing artwork and the Complete Edition’s layout, presentation, paper, binding and overall quality is typical Udon: top-notch. It’s nice feeling your dollars are going towards something you love and when that love is returned in such a high-caliber, glorious presentation.

HASH(0x9c521af8) out of 5 stars The best capcom and Street fighter artbook ever 9 Oct. 2014
By ARTBOOK PASSION - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
++++ FIND ALL MY REVIEWS ON MY SITE ARTBOOK-PASSION.COM - lots of picture, video and review ;) - Link towards my site in my profile. If you think of buying this book or something on amazon, use the amazonlinks of my site, thank you ++++

As well tell you right now, UDON's Art of Capcom: Complete Edition is surely one of the most beautiful art book of 2014 for several reasons.

First Udon has finally understood that art books are better with a hard cover. The problem with art books from the publisher Udon was its soft covers and also that the pages were stuck together. Unfortunately, after some time, they were taking off, which is not the case here because they are connected. So the first good point!

Second, the quality of the illustrations, in 10 years, has seen in Udon artists, and it is not less than 70 illustrators who are gathered here. It was enough to make us less an awesome 600-page artbook! I still can not 600 pages, in fact I thought the artbook would be a huge pile, but as the paper is thin enough without tearing when you turn the page, do not worry, we have an artbook of reasonable size that will not drop your shelf Swedish woods!

Great news but content in this! Well in the book UDON's Art of Capcom: Complete Edition, are together the two artbooks UDON's Art of Capcom Vol 1 and 2, plus a few new illustrations. Which is great because these 2 artbooks have not been reissued, and those who missed out, do not need to spend more than 100 dollars for dishonest sellers to get them.

As Udon did a lot of comics on the Street Fighter saga, more than half of the artbook, or 350 out of 600 pages devoted to it. All have their personal pages of glory, no problem with that. After we Darkstalker, Rival School, artworks with a mixture of different worlds ... Btw Pages are different colors depending on software treaties, to easily find them.

In short this artbook is really excellent, and with 600 pages (yes you must have known, given the number of times I've said), you'll have enough to leaf through. Same with 600 pages there is much to say and as I had problem to choose photo after photo to illustrate this criticism. If I put listened, there would be at least a hundred. So as usual with Doktor-Artbook, here's a video that will show you that this artbook is really excellent.

And if I were you, I would order quickly, because it is certain that in some time it will sell double the price!
