Ryu and the Street Fighter II gang made it look easy when they were destroying cars with their fists and bare feet.
Q: Which video game series would you love to pitch a comic series for? -- @rrob_IV
A: I'm not going to lie to you, Rob: I have always wanted to make comics about video games. I think I've talked about this before, but the first memory I have of actually trying to make comics was laying on the floor of a hotel room at Myrtle Beach one summer vacation, drawing a version of the junkyard scene from Batman #425 that had Blanka and Dhalsim from Street Fighter in place of the standard thugs. It was actually a pretty big dream of mine, and a few years ago, I actually got the chance to pitch a comic based on one of my all-time favorite games. I even ended up writing a pretty big chunk of the script.
So, since you asked, let's talk about the time that I almost wrote a comic based on Final Fight.
All you Vega and Oro fans out there are going to be pleased with Pop Culture's upcoming addition to its Street Fighter line of statues. Wait, there are Oro fans out there?
Pop Culture Shock Collectible has announced that its E. Honda 1:4 scale statue can now pre-ordered.
Capcom is partnering with Dimps once again to make another fighting game. Could it mark the return of the World Warriors?
Ryu, Guile, Blanka, Chun-Li and Sagat are gearing up for an impressive debut at Comic-Con.
Not even Ryu's mastery of the Shotokan-style of martial arts can match up to the meth-induced awesomeness that is 'Breaking Bad.'
The infamous live streaming website partners up with the true king of fighters in order to create the first ever fighting game league completely devoted to Street Fighter.
Looks like famed Street Fighter Ryu is appearing in a commercials for a Turkish car insurance company these days.
Street Fighter just never seems to go out of style. That said, few companies have been able to sustain similar success to the video game with a toy franchise. Since NECA's attempt to revitalize the line SOTA abandoned in 2009, there hasn't been much in the way of Capcom-related combat sports figures. That's something Capo Toys hopes to rectify in 2014.
