Street Fighter: Sci-Fi & Fantasy Special #1
Cover Artist(s): C. F. Villa, Ryan Kinnaird
Publisher: Udon Entertainment
Synopsis: “The World Warriors explore fantastic and cosmic new settings in the Street Fighter 2021 Sci-Fi & Fantasy Special! See Chun-li, Cammy, Juri, Guile, Ken and friends cross into the worlds of cyberpunk, swords & sorcery, horror, mecha, outer space, and more in this pin-up collection by the artists of UDON.”
The iconic characters of Street Fighter are epic and amazing in of themselves. Now, with them suddenly being thrust into a myriad of worlds and settings such as cyberpunk, horror, and space realities, well, the epic-ness has just increased a hundredfold as a result! Start off this summer right with all our favorite World Warriors getting caught in midst of new and interesting situations in worlds aplenty. Personally for me I’m looking forward to them if the cover art is any indication of where Chun-Li and/or Cammy are going. I mean, one giving off strong Savage Land vibes and the other a straight Battletech approach. What’s not to love?!
And there we have it for the week, folks! Lots of expression and background combined with gorgeous aesthetics for all you lovers out there, whether you be a fan of the World Warriors or classic Providence! These tales and so many more await you at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a screen on your tablets and/or phones. But since I know you all love supporting local businesses, I encourage you to head down to your comic stores this week to pick up the hardcopy issues themselves. Read on and share with your friends. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
