Street Fighter Classic Vol.1
Street Fighter Classic Vol.2
These two volumes collect UDON’s first Street Fighter comics – Street Fighter #0-14 and Street Fighter II #0-6. It’s the foundation of the comic universe, where many classic characters meet for the first time, rivalries are formed, alliances forged, and the threat of Shadaloo becomes apparent. A few of the main focuses are Ryu’s quest to avenge Master Gouken and overcome the Dark Hadou, Chun-li and Guile’s search for the missing Charlie, and the origin of Cammy and the Dolls. These stories combine elements of both the Street Fighter II and Street Fighter Alpha era games. So, alongside classic SFII fighters like Ken, Dhalsim, Vega and Sagat, you’ll also find plenty of Alpha cast like Sakura, Adon, Dan, Gen, and more.
