Get Street Fighter #0 and Manga Classics: Les Miserables #0 free!
UDON Entertainment is proud to announce that we will be participating in FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014!
This is UDON’s first time ever participating in the Free Comic Book Day event, and we’re going all-out with two amazing comics that will speak to a wide variety of our comics and manga fans! First up, Street Fighter returns to single-issue comics with the new Street Fighter #0 2014, a collection of brand new Street Fighter stories, and a preview of Street Fighter Origins: Akuma! Then, UDON launches it’s ‘Manga Classics’ line with Les Miserables: The Fall of Fantine, a special self-contained story to whet-your-whistle for our 2014 graphic novel release Les Miserables!
Free Comic Book Day is a single day – the first Saturday in May each year – when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their stores.

18th Century France-REVOLUTION! The Monarchy has been overthrown, society has collapsed, the people are destitute… and desperate!
