Volume 3 - 1st printing. "Ballistics!" By Shirow Masamune. Dark Horse Comics is proud to present the third volume of Masamune Shirow's best-selling art book series Intron Depot. Ballistics features a treasure trove of spectacular full-color illustrations featuring high-caliber treatments. Often a sci-fi military theme is evoked, with special emphasis on detailed weaponry, but there is also a healthy batch of fantasy themes and outer space action. In addition to his traditional drawing and painting expertise, Shirow is also one of the foremost talents in computer graphics. Not only does he create exceptionally realistic backgrounds and vehicles, but in this volume presents alternate "takes" on the main image, presenting different color combinations, daytime/nightime versions and other variations on the primary theme. Softcover, 9 1/2-in. x 13-in., 128 pages, full color. Cover price $49.95.
Volume 4 - 1st printing. "Bullets!" By Shirow Masamune. The next volume in Masamune Shirow's best-selling art book series is orbiting cyberspace and preparing to touch down onto bookstore shelves in late summer. This volume concentrates primarily on Shirow's character, robot, and vehicle designs for interactive games. Shirow is world famous for being equally skilled and creative in the realms of computer-generated graphics and traditional drawing and painting. It is logical then that his unique and imaginative studies are among the most interesting being done in the high-tech game field. With commentary in both English and Japanese, this new collection provides a fascinating insight into the creative process of one of Japan's premiere talents. ?
