But then, in a world where Dragons and Vikings do not coexist peacefully, Hiccup encounters and ultimately befriends an injured dragon, at which point his world is turned upside down. The Art of How to Train Your Dragon is a spectacularly designed, full-color insider's guide to the creative process that went into turning Cressida Cowell's popular book into a feature-length, animated film. Featuring more than 350 pieces of development artwork, including early character designs, story sketches, and concept paintings never before released by the studio, the book provides an in-depth look at the process involved in bringing mythical Dragon and Viking worlds to life.

This second standalone graphic novel based on the film series is a new adventure that takes place shortly after the events in How to Train Your Dragon 2, during the period in which Hiccup is desperately trying to fill his father's role as the chief of Berk. Created with the help of the film's writer, director, and producer, Dean DeBlois, it bridges the gap between the second and third films. Hiccup, Toothless, and the rest of the dragon riders encounter two deadly yet mysteriously linked threats: One is an island consumed by Dragonvine, an uncontrollable force of nature that's poisonous to humans and deadly to dragons. The other is an all-new, all-terrifying dragon species--the web-spitting Silkspanners!

For fascinating insights into how a major Hollywood action film of gigantic scope and complexity is made—especially one shot entirely on location in Hungary with sets, kingdoms, costumes, weapons, horses, chariots, and warriors that transport us to a world never before seen on film—go to The Art & Making of Hercules, which celebrates the artists, actors, and filmmakers behind the Brett Ratner epic film, starring the incredible Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson and featuring distinguished British actors Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, and John Hurt. Lavishly illustrated, the book features more than 300 production photos, sketches, storyboards, pre-visualization stills, computer graphics, costume drawings, 3-D renderings, set decorations, digital photo compositions, Weta Workshop concept paintings, and comic book panels and artwork. Laced throughout are cast and crew commentaries, script excerpts, and extracts from the Radical Studios graphic novel that became the inspiration for director Brett Ratner's new vision. "Every aspect of our movie was meant to deemphasize the use of visual effects and focus instead on tangible in-camera execution….Visually, we wanted to demystify ancient Greece…. Our tale is different from any prior incarnation of Hercules," Ratner explains in his introduction. "No gods. No overt superhuman powers, a complete deconstruction of the myth…Our Hercules is mortal. He is not alone. He wanders about ancient Greece, a world-weary mercenary, haunted by his past, joined by five loyal companions with individuality, specific skill sets, and, most importantly, purpose." The making of Hercules was as unprecedented as the 3,000-year-old legend itself, and all that excitement is brilliantly captured here for fans and collectors alike.
