Street Fighter (2003) # 1 Special Power Foil Variant
(W) Ken Siu-Chong (A) Alvin Lee, Arnold Tsang, and Andrew Hou
THE CONCEPT: In the universe of Street Fighter, fighters of every size, shape and color collide in a global battle for supremacy. From every corner of the world, martial artists, boxers, wrestlers and fighters of every conceivable sort perform superhuman acts in their willing (or unwilling) participation in the Street Fighter Tournament-the contest being hosted by M. Bison, the sadistic dictator and leader of the underground Shadaloo criminal organization. Some contestants fight for reasons as diverse as their nationalities... some fight for money, answers, or vengeance, while others fight for reasons completely shrouded in mystery. Street Fighter, the legendary franchise by Capcom that revolutionized gaming and entertained players and fans for over a decade with its unforgettable cast of World Warriors, finally hits the printed page with every pulse- pounding Dragon Punch and bone-crushing Sonic Boom intact, just like it was meant to be! THIS ISSUE: "Round One! Fight!" In part 1 of the first 6-issue introductory story arc, Ryu makes a solemn journey from Japan to San Francisco to deliver grave news to his old friend and sparring partner, Ken - that their master has been murdered by an unknown enemy. Meanwhile, Guile, fueled by his need for vengeance as much as his sense of duty, delves into Interpol's investigation of Shadaloo, the criminal organization responsible for the mysterious disappearance of his comrade and closest friend, Charlie. PLUS! Fan- favorite artist extraordinaire, JOE "MAD!" MADUREIRA returns to the drawing board, contributes a classic bonus prequel story detailing Ryu's first fateful encounter with Sagat!
