Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am the biggest half behind this website and love to write about my deep love for fighting games, (J)RPG's and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and absolutely love pizza.
IDW has been working on a crossover comic that brings the world’s most popular fighting game and America’s fighting elite together in Street Fighter X G.I. Joe, which will release in stores later this month.
Capcom has released a couple pages for you to sneak a peek at and more info on the six-issue series below. The pages feature fiery fights between C. Viper and Snake Eyes, Rufus getting roughed up, and Ryu delivering a bunch of hadoukens.
Street Fighter X G.I. Joe will be a six-issue miniseries beginning in February 2016. On a hidden island in international waters, 16 combatants enter a secret tournament… one that pits Street Fighter vs. G.I. Joe! M. Bison and Destro have joined forces, and taking them down will require the world’s finest warriors: Ryu, Snake Eyes, Guile, Scarlett, Chun-Li and Duke.
New challengers Aubrey Sitterson (Hulk, Superman, Tech Jacket, Worth) and Emilio Laiso (Hack/Slash: Son of Samhain) bring the visceral combat of the world’s most popular fighting game series and the real world military action of America’s fighting elite together for the first time.
The first issue of the six-part series drops later this month, with a trade paperback expected by the end of the year. Each issue will run for $3.99, and will be available at all comic book shops, as well as IDW’s online shop, starting February 24, 2016.
