Udon's been doing its best to satisfy Street Fighter
fandom's craving for comics by posting its archive of its previously published material daily online
, but given that it's been more than two years since the last printed SF title from the publisher, those cravings have been intensifying. Fortunately for the famished, Udon's delivering big time on January 30 with the release of Super Street Fighter Volume 1: New Generation
. The 8.25" X 11.75" hardcover graphic novel includes 144-pages of all-new comics by creators like Ken Siu-Chong, Jim Zubkavich, Jeffrey Chamba Cruz, Sean Galloway, Joe Ng, Gonzalo Ordonez Arias, Long Vo, Omar Dogan, Edwin Huang and none other than our very own Chris Sims. You can get an early look inside the upcoming HC, after the cut.
