UDON Brings Back Monthly Street Fighter Series


Like an opponent counter your move with a combo breaker, UDON is poised with a big surprise: they're bringing the Street Fighter universe to comic books in a new monthly series called Street Fighter Unlimited. The series will be helmed by Ken Siu-chong and penciled by Joe Ng and Edwin Huang (in four-issue story arcs) and will combine fighters from all eras of Street Fighter’s nearly 30-year history in a Canon Spiking, Sonic Booming, Hadoken-throwing martial arts melee. Fan favorites Ryu, Chun-li, Guile, Ken, Alex, Cammy clash with not only the villainous Shadaloo organization, but also the invincible Gill and his cult-like Secret Society. It’s all leading up to a new Street Fighter Tournament featuring more World Warriors than ever before!

Also returning with the new monthly comics are UDON’s trademark 4-page bonus stories in every issue. These action-packed short stories will feature a rotating team of talented writers and artists such as Jim Zub, Adam Warren, Chris Sarracini, Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz, Omar Dogan and more. As Capcom nears the release of the Playstation 4 exclusive Street Fighter V in 2016, fans can expect even more new Street Fighter comics to be announced.

Street Fighter Unlimited #1 arrives in December 2015, and the series continues monthly through 2016. Full press release below.
