I've seen the Mega Man books at Borders and they are really neat. The MSRP for the Mega Man books is $39.99

...not sure about the other ones, but it looks like quite a few of them are on sale.

Mega Man: The Official Complete Works (Art Book) $14.99 [Mega Man 1-8]
http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_sim_b_2

Mega Man X: The Official Complete Works (Art Book) $14.99
http://www.amazon.co...ref=oss_product

SF: 20 The Art of Street Fighter $14.99
http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_sim_b_4

Darkstalkers $14.99
http://www.amazon.co...3/ref=pd_cp_b_3

Okami $14.99
http://www.amazon.co...ref=pd_sim_b_11

Edit:
Many Marvel Omnibuses are also $14.99 (some have dropped to $8.24), along with Powers Definitives. All credit to slickdeals on the marvel books!

Nice find. Over at SD someone posted many of the Marvel Comics Omnibus HC Books at the same price. Maybe Amazon is having a big sale?

Damn, I just ordered the two Mega Man ones for $26.39 each last week. Guess it's time to shoot an email to Amazon CS to see if they can get me a difference refund...

Oh man... I picked up the Daredevil Volume 1 & 2 Omnibus, the Invincible Iron Man Omnibus, the Death of Captain America Omnibus, Utopia and the Ultimates Omnibus.

Thanks man! I love Marvel's Omnibus hardcovers! :whee:

No spider man omnibus :( Are omnibus's just a collection of the first comics in the series?

Nah, not all the time. Sometimes they're collections of a mini series and all the tie-ins (Secret Wars) or they're collections that start when a new creator team comes in (the two Daredevil omnibuses by Brubaker).

I picked up Wolverine, X-Men, and Fantastic Four. I also ordered Howard the Duck but it's sold out. I wanted a few more but I really shouldn't be spending money at all right now. I never planned on buying an omnibus before but at these prices? I couldn't justify not buying them.

Ha this review and the other posts about the book convinced me to choose the Okami art book over the rest. My first choice was actually the Art of Capcom book but its out of stock already.

Also, Bone: The Complete Epic is $14.99
http://www.amazon.co...67946089&sr=1-1

...I know I shouldn't because I just bought a ton of trades (I still need to pick up my comics for this week too).... Guess I'll sleep on it and hope it's there tomorrow.

Edit: I caved... I could not resist Bone.

Thanks OP. I had to order the Okami artbook, it's one of my favorite games of all time. I really love the art style.

It looks like Dark Horse omnibuses are on sale as well. I'm not a big fan but if you're a Star Wars nerd, they publish Star Wars comics.

The Mega Man ones are each halves of a whole book.
That's lame, but I want the Okami one and the Mega Man ones just because i love the blue man.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

If any of you pick up the Golden Age Marvel Comics Omnibus, let me know what you think of the color restoration. I spent half a year working on that beast :)

Picked up the okami artbook. Looks beautiful. Although I probably shouldn't look at it until I actually play it...

Not picking up the Phoenix Wright artbook since I have the Japanese versions that I picked up from AX a while back.

Dangit... I was hoping the "Darkstalkers" was referring "Darkstalkers Graphic File". I already picked up "Darkstalkers Tribute" when it originally dropped.

It's actually two different arcs. The volume that's on sale isn't the one the preceeds the volume 2 that's on sale. It's actually another story arc by another writer.

So it goes

Daredevil Omnibus Volume 1 (Bendis run, out of print and not on sale)
Daredevil Omnibus Volume 2 (on sale for $15)


Then

Daredevil Omnibus Volume 1 (Brubaker run, On sale for $15)

Awesome. Freakin' awesome.

I think I paid $35, and I feel like I ripped Capcom off. For $15, this is an absolute steal.

Not sure how it compares to Street Fighter Tribute, but it apparently got about 2-3 times the submissions that SFT did - so, I'd imagine it has better quality than SFT on the whole.

Plus, the Darkstalker characters have a lot more room for creativity than Street Fighter... and practically any other property, for that matter.

I bought five of the Capcom books. Thanks. I wish I could find the Megaman Zero book for under $100.
