The comic debuted in 1993, where the ''Street Fighter'' storyline was nothing more than an ExcusePlot [[AllThereInTheManual tucked away in the instruction manual]] of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''. Despite this, Malibu chose not to use most of it and instead made their own story only keeping certain details. These changes included making Ryu and Chun-Li training partners and a romantic couple, having Ken retire from fighting, becoming Ryu's manager as well as a TV star and [[spoiler: [[DeathByAdaptation getting killed and scalped]] in the second issue]]. Due to these changes, Capcom themselves pulled the plug on the series after three issues.

* AscendedMeme: [[UrbanLegendOfZelda Sheng Long]] being the name of Ryu and Ken's master. Sheng Long is actually another way of saying {{Shoryuken}} or the Dragon Punch.
* BarBrawl: Guile gets into one after a dork has the [[SarcasmMode brilliant idea]] of spilling beer on his hair. Despite being vastly outnumbered, [[ConservationOfNinjutsu he kicks every single one of their arses.]]

* CatchPhrase: After a fashion. Some of the characters always find a way to use their in-game win quotes in their dialogue. Within the comic only, Vega says his ''twice''.



* ContinuityNod: Despite a few inconsistencies with the source material, the comics follow certain parts of the game's canon

* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:Ken, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen had the comic continued]]]].

** Still in that soda commercial: when Ken has a disgusted look in his face, you'd think they drew him to look just like Creator/RobinWilliams for that frame. From there you can have an idea of the art level...
