On Saturday, UDON Entertainment announced at its San Diego Comic Con panel that it will be publishing Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Art, a collection of Yu-Gi-Oh! artwork by Kazuki Takahashi. The 127-page art book includes sketches, line art, and full-color illustrations of characters, monsters, and settings from the original Yu-Gi-Oh!, GX, 5D’s, and ZEXAL series. It also includes commentary from Takahashi about the creation of some of his artwork. The book will be released sometime in 2015.
The original Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Art book was released on December 16, 2011 by Shueisha under its V Jump Special Book line. The first printing promptly sold out, leading the publisher to reprint the book for its second run a mere one month later. To celebrate the release of the book, Konami gave away 10,000 copies of the OCG card The Creator God of Light, Horakhty in a lottery. The card has yet to be released anywhere else in the world.
UDON is an art collective and publisher of comics, manga, and art books based in Canada. It is probably most well known for its numerous books of Capcom properties, like Street Fighter and Mega Man.
