    Here we have another spectacular entry in the "Art of" series for the MCU, chock full of amazing art and behind-the-scenes info. This was the Spider-man movie I've been waiting for since the first one was announced way back in 1999. It only took them 6 tries to get it right, but better late than never. My very first comic book was an Amazing Spider-man I bought in 1971 or '72, so I've been a fan for 45 years. Seeing the love and care put into this film matching the passion I had for this characte Here we have another spectacular entry in the "Art of" series for the MCU, chock full of amazing art and behind-the-scenes info. This was the Spider-man movie I've been waiting for since the first one was announced way back in 1999. It only took them 6 tries to get it right, but better late than never. My very first comic book was an Amazing Spider-man I bought in 1971 or '72, so I've been a fan for 45 years. Seeing the love and care put into this film matching the passion I had for this character in my youth is terrific. The book itself is set up as a pseudo high school yearbook, which perfectly matches the tone of the film. Fortunately they restrained themselves from going all-out and just sprinkled the various sections with intro paragraphs to set the tone. Just as Marvel did with the movie, it strikes a perfect balance as a framing device. The various iterations of the characters show the evolution of the concepts, bridging both the comics and previous Spidey flicks to the MCU. The two key characters are, of course, Spider-man and the Vulture, and they've chosen a great number of passes to illustrate the iterations the artists went through to hone in on the final designs. Any book like this is going to leave out 90% of the artwork created for the film, because so much is generated during the brainstorming sessions. Choosing what to include becomes a chore, since some of the designs have excruciating minute differences between them. They've managed to include just enough variety that we can see the process without bogging us down in an avalanche of minutiae. If you follow MCU artists like Andy Park and Ryan Meinerding (https://www.instagram.com/ryan_meiner...) on Instagram and suchlike, you'll see alternate takes of designs not included in these art books. But the differences are often so tiny that you're hard-pressed to spot them. So kudos to the team for choosing the right amount for flavor. I particularly liked the evolution of the Vulture. In the comics his outfit is ludicrously cringe-worthy. It's basically a geriatric guy in a green leotard with a feather boa around his neck. As we see here, the first idea for the film was to riff off of the Falcon's suit, but they quickly moved on to essentially a one-man vehicle that he straps into while wearing a flight helmet and lined jacket. It preserves the *concept* from the comic while utilizing a combination of real-world and imagined superhero geegaws. Such a great idea, and I love seeing that progression. There are also some really great technical drawings included, because the heart of this story is very tech-heavy. As you can tell from the trailers, Tony Stark has designed Peter's suit, so there are a ton of microcircuits and miniature tech throughout, and the Vulture's crew is likewise scavenging forgotten alien tech (and Stark tech) to repurpose as villain gadgets. Showing the various devices each of these different groups comes up with was a key part of the movie, and there are plenty of cool iterations of those designs in the book. I vastly prefer that sort of thing over pages of storyboards that we've seen in previous installments. The layout of this collection is also extremely good. There are a few double-page spreads which cross the valley, thus losing parts of the scene, but they are few and far between. All the high-density pictures are kept to single pages. The book designers seem to be learning! Yay them!

    Como he dicho y he pensado durante toda la lectura, es una libro maravilloso. Tener algo así entre mis manos me hace muy feliz ya que gracias a él he podido aprender lo que hay detrás de la película y el proceso creativo. Si bien tuviese que ponerle una pega sería que, a mi parecer, debería de contener un poco más de texto ya que apenas hay. Sin embargo, es un libro de arte y predominan los bocetos, diseños, trajes, etc. Otro punto a hablar es que me esperaba que hablase también de otros persona Como he dicho y he pensado durante toda la lectura, es una libro maravilloso.

Sin embargo, es un libro de arte y predominan los bocetos, diseños, trajes, etc. Otro punto a hablar es que me esperaba que hablase también de otros personajes secundarios como Ned o Michelle. Pero a pesar de ello me ha parecido un libro fantástico para todo fan de Marvel. Es el primer Artbook que tengo pero ha conseguido que quiera empezar a coleccionar todos los relativos al MCU.

    Depending on the team doing the movie, each artbook is different. This one was laid out to look like a high school year book, and it had little spiderman doodles all over it which was probably my favorite part of all. Lots of full/double page art spreads and even a small chapter dedicated to the ending credits. Lots of pictures and actually very few blurbs, made to look like written comments in various ink colors. I can't believe I'm saying this but I would have liked just a tiny bit more words Depending on the team doing the movie, each artbook is different.

    I usually love making-of books, but something about this one didn't really do it for me. There's enough art but not a lot in the way of writing or explanations. It's written as if it's Peter's Midtown High yearbook and that gets old pretty fast. It's fine, I guess. I suppose I just wanted more in the way of the production and writing, as well as some more info on Spider-Man's inclusion in Civil War.

    I'm a Spider-Man nerd boy so I definitely loved looking at and reading about all the art that was created in the process of making this movie. I'm a Spider-Man nerd boy so I definitely loved looking at and reading about all the art that was created in the process of making this movie.

    Could have used more information and text, but the art is gorgeously presented, many spreads over both pages.

    This book has really opened my eyes to the behind the scenes of film making and just how much thought and time goes into every minute detail of movies.
