Udon Announces Mega Man Tribute Art Project

Dec 8th 2010
Toronto, ON – Dec 8, 2010 – Since his debut in 1987, Megaman has remained a video game icon, having starred in more than 140 titles. In his 23 year history, the connection he's made with pop culture at large has extended beyond games and into cartoons, toys, clothing, comics, and more. Now, Megaman fans everywhere can become a part of that history with an all-new art book from Udon Entertainment - get ready for MEGA MAN™ TRIBUTE!

UDON is sending out a call to comic artists, video game artists, freelance illustrators, and fan artists all around the world to show us your artistic tribute to Megaman! Give us your best artwork featuring the cast of Megaman®, Megaman® X, Megaman® Zero, Megaman® ZX, and Megaman® Legends. All styles are welcome – anime, western comic style, cartoon, pixel-based, sculptures – whatever you can come up with as your tribute to the blue bomber!

The best pieces submitted will be included in Megaman Tribute, which will premiere as a special 300-page limited-edition hardcover book at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con. UDON's past tribute books have had a huge artist turnout, with Street Fighter™ Tribute and Darkstalkers™ Tribute each receiving thousands of entries. As one of the most beloved characters in video game history, and with hundreds of characters to work with from across the Megaman franchise, Megaman Tribute is poised to be UDON's most diverse and exciting art book yet!
