Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases for July 20 2016

bce720

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Udon Rereleases ‘Refreshed’ Versions of Capcom Tribute Art Books, Including Mega Man, Street Fighter And More

Mega Man Tribute, Udon Entertainment

Ah, art books! They're like comics, but without some goofball writer showing up and running his mouth all over the real attraction, and if you're looking for a good one, you can't find a whole lot that are better than Udon Entertainment's line of Capcom Tribute books. Unfortunately, they've been out of print for a while, but now, following up the release of the Fighting Game Tribute, Udon's earlier offerings are coming back in print in a series of new hardcovers.

The "Refreshed" editions of Mega Man Tribute, Street Fighter Tribute and Darkstalkers Tribute are available now, and if you're the kind of person who buys art books based on Capcom video games, that's probably all you need to know. If, however, you'd like to see what's in store --- including art by Bryan Lee O'Malley, Adam Hughes and more --- check out a sample below!

Udon Unveils New Hardcovers Of Osamu Tezuka Character Designs

OSAMU TEZUKA: ANIME CHARACTER ILLUSTRATIONS

To say that we could all learn a few things from Osamu Tezuka is underselling it quite a bit. In a 40-year career that saw him become one of the world's most prolific and beloved comics creators --- not to mention one that was so influential that he earned the nickname "The God of Manga" from readers across the world --- he produced some of the most memorable stories in the medium. Now, it seems like there's a push to get more of his work published on this side of the Pacific, and the latest part of that is coming from Udon Entertainment with two hardcover collections of his sketches and designs.

This week, Udon released Osamu Tezuka: Anime Character Illustrations and Osamu Tezuka: Manga and Anime Character Sketchbook, totaling 368 pages of his designs for projects like Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, and more. The books are available now, but if you want to see what's involved, check out a preview of both below!

Udon’s ‘Kill la Kill’ Manga Translation Cuts to the Chase [Preview]

UDON
UDON

They say clothes make the man, but what they don't tell you is that sometimes clothes make you into an unstoppable bad-ass. Such is the case for Ryoko Matoi, who discovers a sentient school uniform comprised of Life Fibers that, when activated, give her incredible powers of durability, strength and agility, provided she doesn't slip into a berserker rage.

Of course the school uniform also transforms from a humble outfit into battle armor that leaves so little to the imagination it would make an exotic dancer blush. But that kind of fan service is part of Kill la Kill's gimmick, and it's a bit of what makes the anime-turned-manga such ridiculous fun. Check out an excert from Udon's just-released English translation of the official manga.
