Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noel! Feliz Navidad! Mele Kalikimaka! However you want to say it, we want to send some warm wishes and good feelings your way this holiday season. So, since our little Halloween countdown was so successful, we’re sending 25 days of holiday-themed artwork your way, from across our comics, manga, and translated art books.
For those of you that don’t know or don’t have this tradition where you’re from, an Advent Calendar is a special calendar that counts down to Christmas. Each day from December 1st to 25th, you open a little flap on the calendar to reveal a treat… in olden days it was a little picture, when I was growing up it was chocolate, and these days there are over-the-top Advent Calendars filled with LEGO or Playmobil figures, or other sorts of toys. At UDON? We’re all about the art, going old, old-school, and we hope you enjoy some of the festive treats headed your way!
Day One: First up is a true rarity, it’s a variant cover to Street Fighter #4 from 2002–11 years ago! We made it as a retailer exclusive, a thank you for the huge orders comic book retailers had placed for our then brand-new Street Fighter series! It’s illustrated by Arnold Tsang, and features a pretty cool alt-costume for Chun-Li.
If you want to buy a copy for yourself, we have a very limited number left at the UDONstore, http://www.udonstore.com/Street-Fighter-4-Holiday-Cover-p/street-fighter-4-holiday.htm. Buy it before end-of-day on Monday December 2nd, and get 50% off thanks to Cyber-Monday deals!
See you tomorrow with more holiday fun!
