After seeing it cancelled last year, Free Comic Book Day is back, and publisher Udon has a special Street Fighter comic coming to celebrate.
Comics are going back to school. As in the upcoming Street Fighter: Back To School Special from Udon. The book will be arriving on FCBD, which is August 14th this year, as it returns from Covid oblivion in 2020. Clocking in at 32 pages, the Back to School Special should be a good one.
But even though this new book has Street Fighter in the title, it actually crosses the legendary fighting game series’ characters over with another game.
If you guessed Rival Schools, you’re on the money.
UDON Entertainment is moving to the head of the class with an all new Free Comic Book Day Comic! Street Fighter heads back to school, as the world’s young fighters flex both their academic and martial arts prowess! Fan favorites Sakura, Ibuki, Karin, Makoto, and Elena come face-to-face with a new challenger – the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding Akira! It’s a square-off of (rival) schools in this action-packed one-shot!Udon
Udon’s Director of Publishing himself, Matt Moylan will be penning the tale here, and he’ll be joined by some stellar artists. Genzoman will be providing the interiors, with cover art from Hanzo Steinbach.
