The other day I talked with a co-worker about how Capcom really needs to crossover Street Fighter and Darkstalkers in order to bring Darkstalkers more into the spotlight. The next day, I found out that that is exactly what they are almost sort of doing?
That next day I learned that at some point this month, UDON is releasing issue 0 of Street Fighter vs. Darkstalkers, and it will hit with issue #1 (of 8) hitting in April. What makes this even more interesting, is that the first 4 issues will have alternate covers that when put together feature a large image of Demitri’s gender bending attack ‘The Midnight Bliss.’ Since these are variant covers though… good luck finding them for cover price. Hopefully Udon makes these a poster later down the road. http://www.udonentertainment.com/blog/news/street-fighter-vs-darkstalkers-covers-reve aled
Oh, also there is a fan art cover contest going on there too. http://www.udonentertainment.com/blog/news/street-fighter-vs-darkstalkers-fan-art
That should be fun… maybe Zoe Crockett/Clue Dog/Smooch, who I have showcased some of her art, interviewed before, and will hopefully soon have some commissioned work from will enter some fan art? Ya never know.
Deadlines for that contest is March 1st.
