This new Street Fighter series introducing new characters and conflicts will synchronizes with the just released video game. Abel, a brash martial artist is seeking Shadaloo informants so he can infiltrate and stop them. Crimson Viper, a spy and master thief accepts to infiltrate Shadaloo to do the same. Will the new Street Fighter characters be a match for Shadoloo?


Honeslty, the only reason I picked up this issue was because the artwork looked good. From past Street Fighter comic books, I am fully aware that the stories are poor if non non-existent. This issue didn’t surprise me. It’s not even necessary to read the caption or get the back story to hop along for the ride. These comic books are starting to feel like bad Jean-Claude Van Damme movies. How long until they reach Chuck Norris status?

While the art is beautiful the storytelling is poor. It helps a reader a lot when he knows what’s going on in a panel. So not only are the stories poor, now the artwork is just as irrelevant. The colouring really gives an animé look to the comic book. There’s a lot of action in this comic book. However, the artist is not very good at fight choreography, which is a prerequisite for a comic book highlighting martial arts.

Rating: 4 /10
