NOTES and ERRATA:

– The final, official reading order of the series is the one presented in Street Fighter Classic Volumes 1-3, followed by Street Fighter IV, and Super Street Fighter.

– The original comic series had back up and bonus stories that appeared in a different order than the Street Fighter Classic volumes. In addition, short stories appeared in various one-shots, special issues, and magazines, and they have been shuffled into the final order presented in Street Fighter Classic Volumes 1-3.

– This is a breakdown of how you can buy and read all of UDON’s Street Fighter comic books, not a hyper-detailed list of where each short story appeared and when. Maybe we’ll do one of those later…!
