2004 marks the 15^th anniversary of STREET FIGHTER and by summer, UDON
will be publishing its 10^th issue of the acclaimed STREET FIGHTER comic book series! However, that is not all that UDON has in store for 2004.
With the success of the STREET FIGHTER comic, UDON is now planning to expand the Capcom comic line to include two more blockbuster Capcom titles DARKSTALKERS and RIVAL SCHOOLS! DARKSTALKERS, with its classic cast of horror-themed characters including MORRIGAN and FELICIA, has had a dedicated fan base for years, spawning anime OAVs, manga and countless other successful licensed products. RIVAL SCHOOLS, one of Capcoms most beloved 3-D fighting games, expands the STREET FIGHTER universe with a massive cast of new and familiar faces in a tale that is equal parts kung-fu and comedic high school drama. These two titles are planned to debut 4^th quarter 2004 as monthly on-going titles and will feature the same quality of artwork and storytelling as Street Fighter.
To promote the expansion of the Capcom comic line, UDON will be releasing a CAPCOM SUMMER SPECIAL comic exclusively for the San Diego Comicon. Much like the highly sought-after surprise hit STREET FIGHTER #0 of 2003, this special 32 page, full color comic will be available to attendees of the largest summer convention San Diego Comic-Con International. The book will contain three all-new original stories from the three respective Capcom titles: STREET FIGHTER (featuring a CHUN-LI story by Ken Siu-Chong, Arnold Tsang and Andrew Hou), DARKSTALKERS (featuring the origin of MORRIGAN by Ken Siu-Chong and Alvin Lee), and RIVAL SCHOOLS (featuring Street Fighter’s Sakura and her friends Hinata and Natsu in a story by Erik Ko and Omar Dogan). That means a full comic size of original story for the Capcom fans!!
