Preorder: $23.76 with FSSS!


  • Hardcover: 160 pages
  • Publisher: Disney Editions (September 6, 2011)

Well folks, here's what we've all been waiting for.

Remember all that glorious concept art for Epic Mickey? The nightmarish characters? The stylized worlds? Scrapper Mickey?

Y'know, all that stuff that wasn't in the game.

It was a great game, but let's be honest. The concept art rocked our worlds.

Finally, after much pining, Disney Editions (not Chronicle Books, but still good) is giving us the art of talented Disney artists.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get going and preorder! Or else...

Only 160 pages for that price? Seems a little steep. I mean, that's a decent amount and all but if I'm going to buy an art book for a game that's separate from the CE, I'm expecting 200+ pages.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

Only 200? That's a little low. I demand 600 pages! No sale unless it rivals Underworld or Infinite Jest.

Here's what i don't get: preorder for September? Damn, I haven't preordered anything this early since Dead Space 2 in 2009. But I'm tempted.

Haha, that's just my minimum. I will concede that the concept art for this game was wicked sweet, but I'm not really a Mickey fan.

I remember alot of people talking about the concept art so this looks pretty intriguing. I still don't really get the fuss over "scrapper mickey" though, looks just like mickey but with angry eyes.

ooo, it's hardcover too? Think I'll have to bite on this one. The game had so much promise too, it's too bad it didn't turn out as great as it sounded.

UPDATE #2: The book has now dropped to the ridiculously low price of $23.76. Even by art book standards! (Usual Disney art books are $26.40.)

You have no excuse not to lock in your purchase at this price. :hot::hot::hot:

Got my book yesterday. It's quite big, and it looks really great. Only skimmed through it but the artwork looked great, and it's printed on some nice high quality paper too. Really nice coffee table style book.

2nd this, I've had mine for a week, Amazon zipped it out, and I totally forgot I bought it.

LOL to the 40 dollar price.

It's really a good book, alot of pages.
