Got my hands on issue 2.
I liked the main story, the Ryu/Sagat/Dhalsim stuff really reminded me of SF2V where Dhalsim trained both. Didn’t think Ryu would lose this time against Sagat, I suppose he’ll have to rise to the occasion during the SF2 Tourney. T.Hawk chasing both Noembulu and Juli, that rocks! I liked Chun-Li’s second player Zero/Alpha clothes. Great pencils as usual!
Wasn’t too crazy about the back up. The artwork was nice but I wasn’t digging the storytelling images from the artist too much. When Sagat got all vein-y and caught a nose bleed, was that because he was angry or did Dhalsim do something to him, like, I dunno, make him stand still or something like he did to E.Honda in the SF2 Animated Movie? Either/or it was kind of… bizarre, because when people catch nose bleeds in Anime / Manga, um, it means that they’ve been sexually aroused. I know this comic isn’t Anime / Manga but much of it’s look usually is, right down to the beads of sweat on the back of people’s heads… seemed wierd. Dhalsim stretchng the mid section of his body was really bizarre as well. He’d have to like… unhinge his spinal cord to do that I’d imagine… well, maybe I shouldn’t think about it a lot. The story itself was cool and all.
More and more Rey’s look on RS is growing on me. Daigo vs. Hyo was great, loved seeing Daigo get all bloody, and Hyo’s slice, really cool! Sakura training Hinata is a nice touch. Can’t wait for RS 1!
Shinkiro interview - good stuff!
Great issue overall!
