It’s set to be Street Fighter action aplenty this spring from Udon

There’s a tournament’s worth of Street Fighter comics both available and coming up soon from Udon, including the SF6 tie-in series.

Round… 6

Fighting game fans are champing at the bit to get to Capcom’s sixth numbered Street Fighter title. The latest in the series, SF6 changes up quite a few elements for the long running fighter, including an avatar system, and revamped online play and overall look.

But while the video game might be the main event, don’t forget that there’s a slew of comics starring the World Warriors as well. Those hail from publisher Udon, which will be continuing its fighting-game dominance this spring (and summer).

It all starts with… well actually it started already. Udon has a Sagat graphic novel, as well as a Cammy one-shot out in stores as you read this. The Sagat book is notable too as it’s the first story to focus on one of Street Fighter’s most complex charters. It’s also a 120 page hardcover, which is always nice.

Street Fighter Origins: Sagat

“He is a man obsessed with victory, one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Shadaloo, and the God of Muay Thai. Sagat is among the world’s fiercest and most dedicated fighters. But before the martial arts world learned to fear his name, Sagat struggled to find his place in his home nation of Thailand. Street Fighter Origins: Sagat reveals the secrets of this dark figure’s past for the first time in a tale of kings and dictators… of monks and assassins… of men and gods.”

Udon press release

The age of SF6 begins

Past the above, which again you can nab right now, there’s a little Street Fighter 6 mini-series to talk about. That will kick off on Free Comic Book Day, with a gratis one-shot, though the actually series is going to start a little later than scheduled.

Don’t worry, it’s still this month (May 2023), but Udon is moving the release of issue #1 down a few weeks, to May 24th. Why the shift? According to the company, it’s to make sure the debut “was as high-quality as we could make it”. Then after that hits, you can expect the next three issues to arrive weekly, through June 14th.

That’ll mean some overlap between this prequel tale and Street Fighter 6 itself (debuting June 2nd), but it is what it is. After that too, there’s even more to come.

Udon is planning out that Swimsuit Special, plus has even more Street Fighter on tap for this summer. And that’s not even mentioning Darkstalkers. Don’t forget that Felicia #1 is out right now.
