I wish there was more information about their new Korean titles! Street Fighter fans will certainly get their fill of titles next year.
UDON ENTERTAINMENT PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release
NEW MANGA! NEW MANHWA! NEW STREET FIGHTER COMICS!
UDON announces new titles from their 2008 publishing line up
Toronto, ON – Dec 10, 2007 – This past weekend at the 2007 New York Anime
Festival UDON Entertainment unveiled a swath of exciting announcements to a
room full of thrilled anime and comic book fans. Just in time for Street
Fighter’s 20th anniversary (highlighted by the all-new Street Fighter IV
video game and the upcoming live action movie), UDON plans to release three
pulse-pounding Street Fighter comic book series in 2008.
First up, Street Fighter II Turbo will be a 12 issue maxi-series continuing
the core story of UDON’s Street Fighter universe. Featuring the dynamic and
energetic artwork of Chamba (Sinbad: Rogue of Mars), this latest arc pits
the World Warriors against each other in an epic tournament-style slugfest.
Secondly, artist Omar Dogan (Sakura, Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles)
follows up his run on the popular Sakura mini-series with Street Fighter
Legends: Chun-Li. This new 4 issue mini-series focuses on a young Chun-Li,
revealing how she grew up to become the world’s most famous female fighter.
Finally, Joe Ng (Red Sonya: Sonya Goes East, Transformers, G.I. Joe VS
Transformers) brings his skilled line work to the pages of Street Fighter
III: New Generation. This 6-issue series will not only explore the new
characters introduced in the Street Fighter III video games, it will also
show fans for the first time what classic characters like Guile, Sakura and
others are up to during the SF3 era!
Beyond Street Fighter, UDON is diving back into other publishing projects
in 2008. The studio will be expanding their successful Capcom Manga line
with several new titles including Onimusha: Twilight of Desire and Devil
Kings Basara. Fans can also look forward to more Capcom art books including
Onimusha Dawn of Dreams: Official Complete Works and the Darkstalkers
In addition, UDON is also kicking its Korean Manhwa line into high gear
with new titles including Daring Students’ Association, Dear Waltz, Reading
Club, Evyione and Chronicles of the Grim Peddler.
Release dates and more detailed information will be forthcoming in future
press releases, so stay tuned to the blog section of
