    DescriptionDreamWorks Animation presents "Megamind," starring Will Ferrell as Evil Genius Megamind and Tina Fey as Roxanne Ritchi, the Lois Lane-esque love interest, and Brad Pitt as Metro Man in the only animated film to cast the super hero genre in an entirely new light. In its own interpretation of the superhero comic book genre, "Megamind" takes the familiar characters found on the paneled page - the brainy villain with an oversized head, the independent female reporter who never lacks a snappy comeback, the hero with great hair and a V-shaped torso - and puts them in a radically new configuration in which the villain turns out to be a good guy. On screen, Megamind's journey is one of the moral maturation, but just as inspiring is the film's visual evolution during the developmental process. Inside "The Art of Megamind" you'll find how the talented crew at DreamWorks Animation combined Silver Age comics with heavy metal aesthetics, dramatic spaces like those found in high-concept spy films with visions of blighted urban outskirts, and real-world technology with classic car designs to create one of the most inventive movie experiences this side of Metro City.

    Review quote
    "The season's hot new 3-D superhero feature stands out from other similar types of books. First, the wealth of exquisite sketches, paintings and CG renders created in preparation for the movie is really astounding. Second, I love the way von Busack has organized the book in three distinct sections devoted to characters, locations and technology. Third, it's great to see the visual evolution of the characters throughout the production." -Animation Magazine "A godsend to those of us who appreciate the hand drawn artistry that never makes it to screen. Sketches, paintings, boards and much more from names you should know like Tony Siruno, Craig Kellman, Andy Bialk, Kory Heinzen and Tim Lamb (and many others) fill the pages." - CartoonBrew
