Akuma Origins is the newest entry in the Udon series of Street fighter graphic novels.

The story focuses on Akuma's journey from a child to adult and how he comes to embrace the Satsui-no-hado(the murderous intent) or the dark hadou. As the story progresses, it highlights Akuma's relationship with Gouken and his tutelage under master Goutetsu. Along the line, we are treated to a very very brief cameo appearance by a very young Ryu and how he was adopted by Gotetsu.
Now I must say that I am really impressed with this book.WOW! The story is brilliant, the artwork illustration is big, bold and consistent with one artist (big-ups to Joe Ng) while the art colouring is topnotch! I got this book a week before the UK release date and I must confess that I still find myself flipping through to digest the illustration and story over and over. Did I mention that the book consists of about 128 pages and THANKFULLY, only 8 pages were of artwork designs/comic board sketches.

Now my only gripe with the story is that...even as a child, the central character was addressed as Akuma! The story writer should have at least given him a more logical name then illustrated on how he adopted the name 'Akuma'.

With the less than stellar 'Street fighter: new generations', I must say, Udon has really redeemed itself with Akuma origins. Well done!
Even non street fighter fans will enjoy this!

I eagerly look forward to Street fighter volume 2: Hyper fighting.

I'm out!!

I really enjoyed the comic. The art work is great. The story is great. I starts from Akuma's childhood till he grows into the raging damon we all know. The story espically highlights the differences between Akuma and Gouken from the begining. The only reason I could not give this 5 stars is because out of the 5 stories 3 of them are amazing where as 2 of them are just ok. I guess the did their job as filers. I love the big pannel art work, the brutally fight scenes are perfectly in keeping with Akuma's legend. The moves in the fight are straight out of the game even a couple from Street Fighter 4. Young Ryu makes an appearance as well and we learn his link to the cycle of violence that Akuma has made his life.
