STREET FIGHTER 6 #0
ON FREE COMIC BOOK DAY
MAY 6, 2023
November 17, 2022: Today UDON and CAPCOM are proud to announce that the official Street Fighter 6 prelude comics will make their debut on Saturday May 6th, 2023, as part of the Comic Industry-wide celebration and promotion FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. The first release will be Street Fighter 6 #0!
This book will be a legendary release for Street Fighter fans, acting as a direct prelude to the story and lore of the upcoming Street Fighter 6 game from Capcom! This #0 will kick off the four-issue limited series (now five issues!) with art and story by Capcom and the UDON crew, including Edwin Huang, Matt Moylan, and Genzoman on issue #0. The release schedule for following issues will be announced soon!
"This is the first time that we're doing this kind of comic book series that's closely tied to the story of the main game," says Street Fighter 6 game director Takayuki Nakayama in an exclusive interview at GameInformer.com. "We're working very closely with our partners at UDON. We're providing the script and the storyline of what to expect before the events of Street Fighter 6. They're going to be helping us to create the storylines. Beyond that, they're even working into possible spin-offs as well, and collaborating with the scriptwriters on the team, so there may be more stuff beyond just the initial comic book series."
Free Comic Book Day is an annual event that takes place at comic book specialty shops on the first Saturday in May each year, where a selection of different comics are ordered by retail stores and given away free that day to fans who attend in person. Not every comic book is available at every store, so fans are encouraged to let their local comic book retailer know that they want Street Fighter 6 on Free Comic Book Day!
