5.0 out of 5 stars
great series, and equally great artbook, May 27 2010
I love this book! It's great for anyone with passion for the series or anyone with artistic interests. There are many stories from the creators depicting the long process of creation starting from the very beginning. There are some stunning finished pieces of art, as well as a lots of pre-production sketches, series bible bits, and even animation tests and studies. The text isn't boring at all either, to me, it seems as if the creators are telling the story of their adventure instead of just writing an article about it. They also point out their inspiration which, in return, gives great inspiration and ideas.
Another thing I really liked is that they didn't put anything about the upcoming live action movie in it. I love the series, but I have doubts on the movie, so I wanted something from the SERIES, and I got what I wanted. There's not even a promotional page!
As a graduated animation student and as a big fan of the series, I definitely recommend it!!!!
