This book is quite amazing. The story centres on Ryu who is on a quest to become a true martial artist reluctantly under the guidance of Oro from street fighter 3. Along his quest he engages characters like Hugo, yin, yan and dudley in battles. Other characters like sagat, Akuma,elena, ken and Gill make appearances in flashbacks.
The interesting about this book is that it does not make Ryu the typical hero you see in other comics who comes out victorious in every battle without sustaining injuries. Ryu actually suffers defeats....well almost-his battle with hugo ended in a draw but Ryu suffers bruises and he actually bleeds! Even at the hands of the twins and british puglist Dudley!
The artwork is very well drawn and stays true to the udon style however it is in black and white.
I highly recommend this book especially if you are a Street fighter fan but be warned though, the book is in manga format meaning it is read from right to left but itwont hamper your reading.
Saving up for the next volume.
