Enter… the DARKSTALKERS! Now on Comixology!
In Darkstalkers, the fate of the world seems to have taken a bleak and ominous turn. Slowly, but steadily, increasing numbers of supernatural, inhuman creatures have inexplicably begun to walk the Earth. Coming in numerous shapes and sizes — as vampires, werewolves, zombies and ghosts — these beings that have brought fear to the night have come to be known by one name: The Darkstalkers. Some Darkstalkers prey on humans, while others try to live in peace with them. Still, others are too busy fighting amongst themselves to even care what humans do. Based on the fan-favourite video game series from CAPCOM!

In August 2003, UDON Entertainment made its first foray into publishing with the release of Street Fighter #0. The realization of UDON founder Erik Ko’s desire to pay tribute to the video game series he loved, Street Fighter quickly became one of the bestselling comics in the industry and marked UDON as a company with a strong commitment to top-quality art and writing.
That commitment now culminates in UDON’s newest release, its 150th published book, and the 10th Anniversary of UDON’s Street Fighter comics: STREET FIGHTER ORIGINS: AKUMA!
Akuma! The world’s most feared martial artist, mentioned only in whispers. Few have dared to challenge him, and even fewer have survived to speak of the nightmare! Master of the Fist, wielder of the Dark Hado… but he was not always trapped on the path of chaos. Featuring story by Chris Sarracini and art by Joe Ng, this original graphic novel mixes a surprising and intense coming-of-age story with the all-out action that Street Fighter fans love! Street Fighter Origins: Akuma reveals the secrets of this dark figure’s past for the first time, and shows how a frustrated young man grew into the mad demon!
Check out a preview of the first chapter at ComicsAlliance.com!
Over the last 10 years, UDON has worked closely with CAPCOM, the shepherds of the Street Fighter franchise, to bring to life the continuing adventures of Chun-Li, Ryu, Ken, and all of the World Warriors! Working with past publishing partners Image Comics, Devil’s Due, and then finally striking out on their own, UDON has chronicled these adventures through over 1000 pages of various Street Fighter comic series, and now has moved into a new phase of producing original hardcover graphic novels! Following up on this spring’s all-new Super Street Fighter Volume 1: New Generation, today’s release of Street Fighter Origins: Akuma cements this new, oversized, hardcover format as the ultimate version of these new adventures!
Street Fighter Origins: Akuma is a 128 page, hardcover original graphic novel retailing for $34.95. It is available in comic stores, book stores, and wherever comics are sold. To find a comic book store near you, visit http://www.comicshoplocator.com.

Captain Commando Volume 2 (Manga)
The manga adventures of the heroes of justice continue!
The Commando Team faces frightening new foes like the evil genius of Dr. T.W. and his murderous Monster, the nefarious ninja Yamato, and the mysterious Lord Blood! Can even Captain Commando’s new “Captain Gauntlet” give him the power to defeat this never-ending array of almighty adversaries?
We’re thrilled to bring you the conclusion of Captain Commando’s manga adventure, from allllll the way in the 90s. It’s a great property and a really fun manga, and we hope you enjoyed reading it as much as we did publishing it.
We’d like to give a special shout-out to the awesome Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz, who came through with 2 amazing covers for our editions of the Captain Commando manga.
Manga fans take note, we also published the excellent Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes this year in 2 volumes, and we’ll begin publishing Disgaea 3: School of Demons in May! There’s more manga goodness on the way too. Thanks for your continued support…!
