Udon Readies Mega Man and Akuma Hardcovers

Udon is readying the release of MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works, showing off the cover, a mega stack of pages, and an 8-page preview. Both the previously released Mega Man: Official Complete Works and Mega Man X: Official Complete Works are combined into one giant tome, plus has an additional 100 pages of new material. I have the Mega Man book, but missed out on Mega Man X, so I will definitely upgrade to this. The mega 432-page book will be out in softcover in August for $59.99. However, Udon also mentioned that there will be an exclusive hardcover for summer conventions, which means it'll be available at SDCC.

Mega Man and Mega Man X together in one mega-stacked tome.

Udon's next original hardcover Street Fighter comic will be feature the origin of Akuma. This is an original, previously untold tale of how Akuma became the raging demon we all know today. Street Fighter Origins: Akuma is 128-pages of pure rage and will be out in August for $34.95.

Know the man behind the demon.

Meanwhile, if you never got around to getting Udon's original Street Fighter comics, or missed out on the big hardcovers collections, Udon is re-releasing them in a new oversized hardcover containing Street Fighter #1-10, plus the bonus stories and covers. The 304-page Street Fighter Classic Volume 1: Hadoken will be out in July/August for $49.99.

The classic Hadokens are back.
