STREET FIGHTER: SHADALOO SPECIAL #1

SF Shadaloo Special #1_CVRA

THE KINGS OF SHADALOO RETURN IN A STREET FIGHTER ONE-SHOT PACKED WITH PSYCHO POWER!

This December evil takes center stage, as UDON presents the STREET FIGHTER: SHADALOO SPECIAL #1! This one-shot comic features four short stories, previously only available in UDON’s hardcover Street Fighter collections.

This villainous collection of rare tales includes two stories by writer Ken Siu-Chong and artist Hanzo Steinbach, and two stories both written and drawn by Omar Dogan. Balrog and Vega fight as only kings can! Juri and Crimson Viper hunt Decapre! Cammy teams up with Delta Red against Shadaloo, and the poisonous F.A.N.G causes mayhem!

STREET FIGHTER: SHADALOO SPECIAL #1 sports two standard covers by Hanzo Steinbach (CVR A) and Ryan Kinnaird (CVR B). Also available in comic shops is a special Incentive CVR C by artist Panzer, which homages an x-citing comic cover from the 1990’s.

UDON is also producing its own online exclusive variant to the one-shot, showcasing the former Shadaloo operative turned MI6 agent – Cammy! This limited cover, illustrated by painter Warren Louw, is available for pre-order now exclusively through FocusAttack.com. Two versions are available – Cammy in her iconic Delta Red colors, and the EXTRA-limited (only 250 copies available!) Delta Blue version.

STREET FIGHTER: SHADALOO SPECIAL #1 arrives in comic shows everywhere December 6, 2017.

STREET FIGHTER VS. DARKSTALKERS comic series

201702_sfvsds0_cvra_story

The World Warriors clash with the Night Warriors in a Capcom crossover comic of epic proportions, courtesy of UDON.

After a tantalizing tease at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, UDON Entertainment is thrilled to officially announce Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers, an all-new comic series that sees Capcom’s legendary World Warriors and fan-favorite Night Warriors facing off in an action-packed, fan service-fueled comic adventure!

The series will kick off in February 2017 with Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers #0, a special prelude issue brought to you by mainstay UDON crew members Matt Moylan (story) and Hanzo Steinbach (art). The series proper will then launch soon thereafter with Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers #1, the first of an epic 8-issue series whose main creative team consists of beloved UDON veterans Ken Siu-chong (story) and Edwin Huang (art). And starting with issue #2, the series will also feature 4-page backup stories from a variety of creators!

There’s simply no understating the significance of a Capcom crossover as bone-crunchingly exciting as Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers. Fortunately, UDON could not be more poised to deliver on the promise of a hard-hitting, action-packed comic that will delight and surprise fans of both beloved franchises. After all, we brought Street Fighter comics back in a big way in 2016 with Street Fighter Unlimited, Street Fighter Legends: Cammy, and the Street Fighter Swimsuit Special, all of which have proven to be incredibly popular with and well-received by fans!

So get ready – these time-tested warriors may have already met in arcades and on your game consoles, but nothing can prepare you for their impending comic book clash! When the likes of Ken, Chun-Li, Rashid, Sagat, and Akuma face off against Morrigan, Felicia, Jon Talbain, Bishamon, and Donovan, who will be left standing in the end? The answer to that question and more lie in wait within the pages of Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers!

Full ordering information and variant covers are still to be announced, but retailers interested in producing their own store-exclusive variant for Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers #1 can contact press@UDONentertainment.com. Meanwhile, Street Fighter Unlimited #0 will be available at local comic book stores as well as various physical and online retailers in February 2017. Every issue of Street Fighter VS. Darkstalkers will also be made available digitally via ComiXology. Media inquiries and/or requests for review copies should be directed to Jenny Myung at press@udonentertainment.com.
