Udon Comics launches new Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors comic series

Darkstalkers is a fighting game that has kind of been forgotten. Sure, some of the characters made a return appearance in this past summer's re-release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, but for those fans of Morrigan, Felicia and others probably won't be satisfied with that game for their Darkstalkers fix. So now's a good a time as any to re-introduce the characters into a comic. Coming January 2010 is Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors, which will pick up the stories of Morrigan, Donovan, Demitri and Pyron as they return to their battling ways with Earth at stake. The series won't be limited to those characters, as Q-Bee, Anakaris, Sasquatch, Huitzill and more will also be making an appearance or two. Fans will recognize the art from Alvin Lee, who will be creating three covers that will connect into one piece of art awesomeness. Each issue will feature a variant cover by Emily Warren, capitalizing on the sex appeal of the women of Darkstalkers. Ken Siu-Chang is writing alonside art by Joe Vriens and Eric Vedder. Full press release after the jump.
