4.0 out of 5 stars Nice art and an enjoyable story 23 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
True this book isnt exactly Lord of the Rings in its literary content but I would recommend it for darkstalkers and manga comics fans. The art is pretty cool and the story is enjoyable enough. Basically its just a bit of fun and a good addition to your darkstalkers/graphic novel collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars This sheds some light on the Darkstalker's universe... 14 April 2003
By Amber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Felicia and Morrigan are two of my favorite characters, and they are featured prominently in this book. We also get to know the vampire lord Demitri Maximoff, the werewolf Jon Talbain, the zombie Lord Raptor, and the Vampire Hunter Donovan. There are hints that Demitri and Morrigan are attracted to each other, as well as suggestions of deeper feelings between Jon and Felicia (at least that's what I am reading between the lines).
The art is simply gorgeous, and the characters and their troubles evoke powerful feelings from the reader. The story around each character is a deep and interesting one.
If you have ever played the games or watch the anime, then I suggest you give this a try. Maybe you'll like it as much as I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is there just this one book?! There must be more! 30 April 2003
By "mangaqueen16" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I LOVE this book. This is one of my favorites in my vast collection, and I never get tired of reading it. Felicia is just adorable in her kitten form (I love how she talks in a childish scribble as a kitten!) and she is beautiful as a humanoid; Morrigan kicks major butt in more ways than one; and the other characters add a flavor to this manga that you don't often see. My question is, why did the publishers print this one volume? Surely there must be more! Please, bring over the other books (If they exist)!

3.0 out of 5 stars Darkstalkers: Lite 7 Nov 2005
By Aubrey Ward III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's a nice little read. The stories are well done but the book is a real quick read. I was expecting the same detail and expansive storyline that "Super Street Fighter: Cammy" had but I guess that would've been difficult to do with so many characters in just one book. The stories are: Morrigan challenges Demitri, Felicia struggles to become an actress and ends up teaming with Jon Tailbain to hunt down a murderer, and Donavan seeks a mystic sword to defeat Morrigan. Though the stories are good and the art is beautiful it didn't really meet all my expectations. I suggest reading "Darkstalkers" by Udon Comics. The art is spectacular and the storyline is much bigger. I recommend this books for the Darkstalker fans. If you're looking for meatier manga storylines you might want to try somewhere else.
4.0 out of 5 stars Things that go "BUMP-DE-BUMP" in the night! 22 July 2014
By J. Alford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Despite the title, this was the only full on Darkstalkers manga to get an English printing. Viz first released it as a 6-issue mini-series, and then as a collected trade paperback, unlike some of their other video game-based manga releases which were originally printed in Game On! magazine. There have been other manga based on the Darkstalkers games, including one of Vampire Savior(or Darkstalkers 3), plus a compilation of stories from this series and Red Earth titled Maleficarum was released in English. There were also two American mini-series created by Capcom Comics to coincide with their successful Street Fighter comics. This manga was on its own done by Run Ishida who had also worked on the Warrior Nun Areala one-shot comic. It was probably given the title of Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge instead of just Darkstalkers to coincide with Viz'a release of the OVA series of the same name, which they used to differentiate between the anime series and the American Darkstalkers cartoon.

This is set up in three sections all set in the same world where monsters are referred to as "Darkstalkers". The first one is a short one where the succubus Morrigan confronts the vampire lord Demitri. The next one is a 3-part story featuring the catwoman Felicia where she frees her "owner" from some kidnappers, teams up with the werewolf Jon Talbain, and the two of them then stop the zombie rocker Lord Raptor from stealing someone's soul. The last segment is another 3-parter about the Darkstalker hunter Donovan(who is half-Darkstalker himself)as he crusades to stop Morrigan from stealing the souls of innocent men.

This was a fair collection of stories that works better than the mish-mash that was the OVA series adaptation of the video games. If you were a big enough fan of the original Darkstalkers video game trilogy, than this is totally down your dark alley.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the anime or video game... 29 Mar 2000
By Marcelo Andrade Teixeira - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First I watched the anime... It was awesome! But I wanted more! So I got this manga. The illustrations in this book aren't so good like the anime but the story is pretty good! If you like the Darkstalkers then you have to get this book!
