(The limited edition is the same as the regualr edition in contents. the only different is the limited editon is hard cover with a sleeve and with different cover arts.)

Sorry if the picture is a bit blur, im using my cell phone for taking pics.

Hello everyone!!! im back for another book review, and its also another megaman book review. This time is the megaman Tribute artbook by Udon. The copy i got is the Special hard cover Limited Edition which is available from Udon store.

The cover of the limited edition is done by none other than Hitoshi Ariga, the artist of Megaman Megamix and Gigamix manga.

As a big megaman fan, when i know there will be a special edition for the book and the cover is done by Ariga, i know thats the version i will get. i have to say i really like it.

The cover is like many hard cover books that come with sleeve. It have a smooth surface to it and the titles from other front and back also some pics have a light gloss surface. As for the cover inside it seen to be the same as the regualr edition except with no title.

If you seen a Tribute artbook (Street fighter tribute) from udon before then you will know what to expect from this one. Its an artbook that contains art by various artist from around the world, in this case all the works here is about megaman. The book have a foreword by Ariga-san and afterword by Matt Motlan, Udon's Managing editor and an Index with all artist's name and page numbers. That also pretty much what this book have, lots just arts about megaman. Under each piece of artwork is the name of the artist and his/her website about the works also what job they have such as Illustrator or colorist.

If you are a megaman fan then all i can say is that you need to get it, the book will be a great collection to you. If you are not a fan of megaman, but if you like art then get this book a look maybe you will end up like it, specially the book have so many styles of art and i can say that no artist's work in this book looks the same.

You can buy the book from amazon for the regular edition -
