Comic News:
Image's Street Fighter Sells Out
By Brian Jacks

08.25.03


Image Comics has announced that Diamond has completely sold out of STREET FIGHTER #1 by Ken Siu-Chong, Alvin Lee, Arnold Tsang and Andrew Hou, two weeks prior to its in-store date of September 4.

A second printing of STREET FIGHTER #1 has already been scheduled and will be in stores September 10. The second printing is available for order now.

"I think it's safe to say that many retailers underestimated the demand for the all-new STREET FIGHTER," said Image Director of Marketing Eric Stephenson. "Since STREET FIGHTER #0 debuted at Comic-Con International in San Diego last month, though, there's been a huge swell of interest in this title. People want this book."

STREET FIGHTER #1 was originally solicited with three covers: Cover A by Joe Madureira, Cover B by Arnold Tsang and Cover C by Jo Chen. In addition to the variant covers, STREET FIGHTER #1 also includes a bonus prequel story by fan-favorite artists Joe Madureira, perhaps best known for his creator-owned series, BATTLE CHASERS.

"We want to make sure that everyone that wants a Street Fighter comic book will have the opportunity to get one, and so have gone back to print right away, in an effort to make the second printing available as quickly as possible," said Erik Ko, Chief of Operations of UDON.

Stephenson was also quick to point out that while STREET FIGHTER has its roots in the '80s, it's appeal is not nostalgia based.

"I don't think there's anything 'retro' about STREET FIGHTER, because unlike the many '80s properties that have experienced a resurgence over the last couple years, STREET FIGHTER has remained an ongoing concern," he said. "People are still playing the video game and there's still an interest in the incredibly rich world these characters exist in. This is book very firmly rooted in the 'now.'"

STREET FIGHTER #2 also features three covers: Cover A by Arnold Tsang, Cover B by Adam Warren and Cover C by J. Scott Campbell. Adam Warren also contributes an action-packed backup story pitting STREET FIGHTER's two leading ladies -- Chun-Li and Cammy -- against one another.

STREET FIGHTER #2 hits store shelves on October 1.
