As it does every year, comic and videogame art book publisher UDON Entertainment will be attending San Diego Comic-Con with a bunch of event-exclusive goodies in tow. Technically, all these books will be available elsewhere in standard editions, but if you want the privilege of spending out the nose for fancy covers, you'll have to brave the sweaty SDCC crowds.
UDON's Street Fighter comic series is getting three hardcover compilations with special dust jackets, featuring a character face-off on one side and a "Street Fighter lady on the beach" spread on the reverse. Street Fighter Classic Vol. 1 and Street Fighter Origins: Akuma are $40 each, while Super Street Fighter Vol. 1: New Generationis $60.
MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works is supposed to arrive in September, but show attendees can snag a blue laser foil hardcover edition for an insane $100 (WHAAAAAAT!?). Also priced at $100 is a hardcover World of Warcraft Tribute, which collects fan art submissions from around the world. Finally, there's The Art of Brütal Legend, available for $80 in a silver metallic slip case.
If these books sell out at the show, that's it. But if there are leftovers, UDON editor Matt Moylan promises they will appear on UDON's web store.
