The Art of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Preorders Are Now Live And Already Discounted

Go behind the web design of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 with these stunning art books.


Like every video game, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 was built on a foundation of art that helped inform its design. Developer Insomniac Games has put its own spin on its world of friendly neighborhood Spider-Men, and if you wanted a look at the behind-the-scenes process of creating this spider-sequel, then you can now grab a preorder of The Art of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 ahead of its April 2024 release.

This art book will be available in two editions--a standard and a deluxe version--and is packed with never-before-seen concept art, creator commentary, and storyboards across 248 pages that show just how the game came together. The regular edition is priced at $45 on Amazon (normally $50) and is an oversized hardcover book that celebrates the art and artistry behind this game.

The deluxe version is pricier at $90 (although its MSRP is $100) but it comes with some fantastic extras. In addition to the art book, you'll get a different cover, a slick slipcase, and a gallery-quality print that you can have framed. For Spider-Fans looking to expand their time with the excellent sequel, this is a must-have book, and for anyone looking to pick up a gift for someone special next year, this makes for a thoughtful present for any Spider-Man fan in your home.

For something more immediate, Amazon currently has a big sale on video game art books and guides. Right now, you can pick up The Art of Dead Space for just $24, The Art of God of War Ragnarok for $29, and the Final Fantasy VII Remake: Material Ultimania book for $25. Many of these books are also eligible for the current Buy One Get One Free promotion at Amazon, giving you a great opportunity to expand your gaming art book library.
