There's always been a seamless crossover between video games and comic books, and odds are if you're a fan of one, you're a fan of the other. Comics have been adapted into video games and vice-versa for almost as long as video games have been "a thing," and as both mediums have evolved, so too has the quality of those crossovers. With the holidays around the corner, we've put together a selection of some of the best video game related comics and art books for the gamer in your life.
Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney
Say there would-be lawmakers, have you longed for they day when you could go behind the scenes of the best virtual court room drama video games have ever seen? Are you the armchair litigator that finds herself constantly objecting to every motion or line of questioning the prosecution takes? Do you have a penchant for wild hairstyles, find your self attracting the attentions of weirdo attorneys on the other side of the court room, and generally appreciate the hard work of a good gumshoe detective? Then Udon and Capcom might just have the one thing to tide you over until recess is over.
After already publishing a comprehensive art book focused on the creation of the first four Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney games, Udon has returned with a new tome focused on fifth entry in the popular and successful series. The Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is packed with materials used to develop the characters, look and style of the most recent courtroom simulator. The interior features 240 pages of original art work used by Capcom's art team when developing the game, including sketches of characters like Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, Miles Edgeworth, and Athena Cykes in all manner of poses and emotions.
