The Press Release:
STREET FIGHTER™ UNLIMITED #1 is pre-orderable now at comic specialty retailers everywhere, and will feature a bevy of exciting variant covers! The all-new monthly comics series from UDON Entertainment arrives in December 2015, and launch a whole new era for the World Warriors! Featuring the main creative team of writer Ken Siu-chong and artist Joe Ng (Street Fighter™ Origins: Akuma), the first issue also sports a bonus back-up story by the duo of Jim Zub (Wayward) and Edwin Huang (Skullkickers).
Each issue of the ongoing series will ship with two standard covers. CVR A (Story cover) features the art of digital painter Genzoman. Each issue’s CVR B (Ultra Jam variant), drawn by Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz, will connect to form one massive 12-part image featuring all the playable characters from every Street Fighter game – over 60 characters!

Street Fighter™ Unlimited #1 will also ship with several limited run retailer incentive covers. The first of these is the “Street Wars” homage variant, honoring one of the most famous comic covers of the 1980s. More homage variants will follow on subsequent issues, paying tribute to both retro and modern comic book covers and series. Additional Street Fighter™ Unlimited #1 incentive covers include a “Street Fighter™ V variant” showcasing the cover art of the upcoming Capcom game, as well as an extremely limited variant cover by legendary Capcom artist Bengus!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since we don’t really read or follow the “Street Fighter” franchise at all there isn’t much that I can add to the mix here but with it being a very popular game series among the geek-minded readers AND considering that there is a “Ken” character in this I had to share it for our Comic Book features area. I love showcasing the assorted variant covers but that being said when I buy a first issue its usually only the standard edition cover. What about you readers? Does this new series interest you at all, or any of the variant covers? Chime in down below.
