Street Fighter Unlimited #1 Kicks Off New Monthly Series


Street Fighter Unlimited is winding down as a series for UDON Entertainment. That doesn't mean such a good thing will end though, as Street Fighter Unlimited #1 is now available for purchase. And it's the first-ever UDON comic to receive a “day-and-date” digital release alongside the physical book. UDON has also partnered with several comic and video game stores to provide a slew of retailer-exclusive variant covers for Street Fighter Unlimited #1, giving fans who opt for the physical book plenty of gorgeous art to choose from. The retailers who will be offering these exciting variant covers include Amazing Comic Cons, AOD Collectables, Books-A-Million, GAME, GameStop, Heroes Haven, Newbury Comics and Strange Adventures.

Street Fighter Unlimited #1 – and every issue of the ongoing series thereafter – will ship with two standard covers courtesy of fan-favorite digital painter Genzoman and beloved UDON artist Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz. Even more excitingly, Chamba’s covers will all connect to form one massive 12-part image showcasing all the playable characters from every Street Fighter game ever – over 60 characters in total!. The release of Street Fighter Unlimited #1 kicks off a thrilling, all-new story for the beloved World Warriors, brought to you by the main creative team of writer Ken Siu-chong and artist Joe Ng. This first issue also features a bonus backup story by fan-favorite writer/artist duo Jim Zub and Edwin Huang.
