Darkstalkers: The Ultimate Edition

The Darkstalkers! Morrigan, Demitri, Felicia, Donovan, Victor, Talbain, and more battle it out for control of the night! Darkstalkers: The Ultimate Edition collects all of UDON’s original comics adapting and inspired by the fan-favourite Darkstalkers video game series in one massive, oversized-volume!

In the world on Darkstalkers, the fate of the world has taken a bleak and ominous turn. Slowly and steadily inhuman and supernatural characters have awoken and are roaming the earth. Vampires, zombies, ghosts, and succubae torment the mortal world—when not engaging in vicious struggles for power amongst themselves! Created by CAPCOM, Darkstalkers is dark reflection of the Street Fighter video games, a surreal and supernatural fighting game with fan-favourite characters that have gone on to star in other CAPCOM games, including the smash-hit Marvel vs. Capcom 3!

Darkstalkers was adapted comics by UDON from 2005 to 2009, and these stories feature some of the company’s greatest talents including writer Ken Siu-Chong, and artists Alvin Lee, Kevin Lau, Eric Vedder, Joe Vriens, and many more! These stories remain amongst UDON’s most popular works, and Darkstalkers fans among the most passionate!

The latest installment in UDON’s fantastic Ultimate Edition line, Darkstalkers: The Ultimate Edition collects the entirety of UDON’s Darkstalkers and Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors comic series in a 8.25” x 11.75” format. In addition, this book contains every Darkstalkers short-story from across UDON’s publishing history, and every Darkstalkers variant cover!

In addition to the regular softcover edition, a special limited edition hardcover was created, available direct from UDON at conventions or online at the UdonStore.com! This deluxe binding features two all-new pieces of wrap-around artwork by fan favorites Alvin Lee and Omar Dogan. These exclusive pieces were created specifically for the limited edition hardcover and can’t be found anywhere else!
