The art book, comic and graphic novel publishing company UDON announces that its books are on the way to the biggest digital comic reading platform on Earth.
Not that it’s all that they publish, but if you’re a Street Fighter or Capcom fan, then you probably know and more than likely love UDON. The company has created some of the finest comics and art books based on Capcom’s properties in existence – and now they’re going to be available digitally.
Adding their stable of books to comiXology’s forty thousand some odd comics already available, UDON is opening up seven full length comic and graphic novels right now for download on the platform. The books are available right this very moment on iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 8 & the Web- all through comiXology’s platform. And if you’re reading on an iDevice with Retina, then you’re in for a treat as you’ll get the books in hi-def with comiXology’s CMX-HD technology.
Here’s what’s available out of the gates:
- Street Fighter #0 story by Ken Siu-Chong & art by Arnold Tsang, Alvin Lee, Rob Ross, Andrew Hou – Free title!

Much more of UDON’s work is on the way for digital readers too, including their hotly anticipated Street Fighter Origins: Akuma original graphic novel. That one will be ready for a day and date physical/digital release this Autumn. You can expect to see the publisher’s complete slate of releases follow suit moving forward, with ‘same day as print’ being the norm more than the exception.
