Marvel fans, Titan Books has a new art book that may be of interest to you, especially if you’re a longtime player of Contest of Champions. The recently released Marvel Contest of Champions: The Art of the Battlerealm art book is the new Titan Books book that I speak of, and after getting a review copy, I can confirm it’s a fantastic companion for the game and fans of the Marvel universe.

The book is authored by Paul Davies with other anecdotes provided from developers from Kabam, who developed the game and continue to support it. It’s broken down into multiple chapters that cover each stage of the game’s development. It starts with the game’s conception, and covers every major update it has gotten since it released, at least through the Infinity War event.

The book offers up fantastic looking concept art for every character in the game, as well as final renders of the characters and other aspects of the Battlerealm. The art really pops off the thick glossy pages, of which there are 208 total to flip through.

I do think this book is best suited for players of the game itself, but like I said earlier, it can be appreciated by Marvel comics fans too. This is due to all of the Marvel art packed in, as well as the information provided by all of the players involved in the game.

You can pick up a copy for yourself from Amazon for just over $30.
