    This looks great. Thanks for the heads-up on this. Out of curiosity, has anybody here bought any of their previous books? They come across as being pretty high quality.

    I have three books from them, all top notch. Good quality covers, spines, paper and ink. No regrets whatsoever.

    Really interested in seeing as much of the behind the scenes and concept stuff as possible... that sega saturn art section remains one of the more intriguing little extras - be nice to see that really expanded upon and given a top notch treatment.

    Kind of wary of the post neo-geo content... hopefully it's heavy on the early stuff, and suitably light on the stuff that basically ripped off the original content...

    From what I've seen of their books in the past they use too many pages just showing basic stuff like game covers, basic sprite art in huge size etc. Maybe I'm wrong here and this will be awesome though. I really do like those geek line books and wish they had them in English too, those are just insanely packed!

    Bitmap books are more coffee table art books than compendiums. The strength of this is that the emphasis is on presentation - this is what the people behind it are all about, and it generally shows. They aren't writers. To a certain extent this is totally style over (prose) substance - but that's kind of the joy when you just want to communicate how/why something like this is so compulsive.

    Geekline's offerings are a bit more like an offline hg101 or something. The strength of this is approach is that they are quite comprehensive, and offer a fuller (subjective) explanation of their subject. The downside is if you don't quite 'agree' with their interview choices, or editorials, it can kind of spoil things.

    This metal slug book is hopefully the kind of second bite of the apple that bitmap earn when they strike up a relationship... we'll see what they can do with it.

    I went to order Fully Loaded Edition today and it was sold out. There were 1000 copies available. It sold more copies than the original AES Metal Slug!

    Just got confirmation that my pre-order shipped! Look forward to reading this with a glass of whiskey and sitting in my favorite rocket lawnchair.

    Got mine yesterday - came with a postcard and a poster. Noice.

    Not going to happen."

    Actually I've glued those pages together with apoxy resin so you literally skip from 3 to 5.

    I was tempted to tear out the page which pimps Kraut Buster... ng.dev has no place in Metal Slug history
