5.0 out of 5 stars Round One....FIGHT!!!!!!!, 19 Nov 2006

This review is from: Street Fighter Volume 1: v. 1 (Paperback)
Often fans of a computer game series are left disappointed when their cherished icons of gaming are transferred from the computer screen to the comic book...Fans of Street fighter owe Udon comics a great debt for the fantastic effort they have produced in making the current run of street fighter comics.

The artwork is first rate, based very much on the "alpha" games style, but with a firm recognition of the character designs from Street fighter II. The colouration is bright and perhaps more in tune with the games than some of the recent anime offerings.

The storyline is another strength of this title, collecting issues 1-6 of Udon's comic series, the plot is based upon the core characters of the streetfighter universe; Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile (Cammy and Sakura) whilst the use of bosses (Akuma/M.Bison/Vega/Sagat/Balrog) and support characters (mainly from the Alpha universe) is well handled and feels appropriate to the storyline and not just fan service (always a danger with computer game adaptations).

All in all, a fantastic acheivement, as a street fighter fan of two decades, I was concerned that that this may have been another anniversary cash-in on the franchise, but I have been impressed by what is a fantastically produced product and an essential part of any street fighter fans collection...
