Made a few fixes -

SF3 Back up by Kevin Lau.

Also added info on 9 & 10 back up.


#3

I personally think its just a martial arts comp set in America, rather then being only open to Americans.

I more of wonder since when has Wrestling been considered a martial art? But thats neither here nor there.


#4

im hoping for Jim Lee in the future to be a guest star:eek:


#5

Jim Lee would be amazing! :eek:

I also wish Campbell would’ve done an actual back-up story instead of just a cover.


#6

Updated guest artist information for issue 11.

For those who saw the cover preview for issue 11, you may recall that the colouring on the Josh Middleton cover appeared incomplete. You can find a newly coloured version of that cover

Udoneko: Thanks for the corrections and additions:)

Man, when are Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun-Li gonna meet up? I’m still waiting for the all important meeting of the SF2 Core Four… I’m trying to remain patient here… ah, least they were all in the same restaurant in Issue 1.:cool:


#8

Wow, colors really do make all the difference. When I first saw the Middleton cover, I found it to be really plain, now it’s amazing, although I still don’t like how Blank and Ken look.

Thanks for the link!!

Good job V! I went ahead and make this thread sticky. I think it’d be a good idea to list issue 06 also, even if just to state that there was no backup story because they needed the extra pages to wrap up the story arc.


#10

Thanks Majestros.

Updated issue 6 information.

This list will eventually grow too large. When this happens, I was thinking of archiving older list entries as a text attachment. This will reduce the size of the post and people can still have access to older entries if they want it.

To udoneko / Udon people

Hey! Please try to ask Bengus, Akiman or other classic Street Fighter character designers/illustrators for covers/guest works. The Shinkirou covers/illustrations for the comics are great!

It also would be great include some “forbidden” draft sketches of the Street Fighter games, with early versions of Ryu, Blanka, and the other guys, and other rough designs of some characters that finally don’t appeared in the games.

I have some of they in some japanese artbooks like “Capcom Illustrations”. I think that it would be great for the outside Japan people, that they also could see them. :slight_smile:

P.S. Excuse me, I don’t speak english very well.
And can you also add to that thread list the authors of the covers, nope?

Issue 12 backup artist information now up.

Info is from this month’s Previews. The character featured for issue 12’s Powerfoil is Rose.

There was also an ad for Darkstalkers (DS). It seems DS will follow the same format as the SF book; i.e, it’ll have 2 regular covers, a foil cover and a backup story. The Joe Mad cover was previewed and it’ll be the foil cover. Mark Brooks contributes cover B and the backup story.


#13

any chance Greg Horn or Shinkiro gonna do a backup story? :slight_smile:


#14

Preferably Shinkiro! :slight_smile:
And I cannot wait for another back-up from MAD!
I would like to see an Issue of DS done by MAD!..just one at least… I wanna see his pages of Morrigan! =p


#15

Updated issue 13 information.

All info is from this month’s Previews.

Powerfoil for issue 13 features Dhalsim. Joe Mad contributes cover A and Keron Grant contributes cover B.

The Darkstalkers Powerfoil features Donovan. Cannon Buster’s LeSean provides cover B and backup story.


#16

I would love to see guest back-up story by Pat Lee or Don(Dreamwave)


#17

All info is from this link:

Pat has bailed… he said he will do it, but never did one so far… I will keep trying…


#19

Too bad… I hope it has nothing to do with you Udon guys getting the Darkstalkers license :confused:
Keep up the good work! :clap:


#20

Say I wanted to submit some artwork…

How do I go about doing this?
