Dark Horse to Publish a Concrete Genie Art Book

Concrete Genie may be a Playstation EX-X-XCLUSIVE, but that EX-X-XCLUSIVITY applies only to video games. When it comes to art books, you can play those on any console at all because books are played in the console of the mind! And so, Dark Horse Comics will publish an art book for the upcoming video game, aptly titled The Art of Concrete Genie, this December.

A press release from the publisher reveals more details:

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (August 14, 2019)—Dark Horse Books and Pixelopus are delighted to present The Art of Concrete Genie: an art book full of heartwarming, magnificent illustrations fans of Ash and his wildly varied ‘living paint’ creations within Concrete Genie will adore.

Walk among the mysterious streets of Denska and collect the real pages of artwork behind Pixelopus’ endearing video game Concrete Genie, available exclusively on PlayStation 4! The Art of Concrete Genie studies the power of self-expression, creativity, and the philosophy at the game’s core: the belief that anyone can be an artist.

In The Art of Concrete Genie you can explore the characters, monsters, and lore of Denska to uncover the secrets behind Pixelopus’ ‘living paint’ mechanics that allow the walls of Denska to come alive with player creations. Experience a special, behind the scenes look at the development of Concrete Genie from the small and passionate team that brought it to life in 160 pages of full color.

The Art of Concrete Genie goes on sale December 10, 2019, and is available for pre-order now through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and at your local comic shop for $29.99

Concrete Genie will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4 on October 8, 2019.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
