* [[DuelingShows Dueling Comics]]: An interesting example: Malibu also did a number of comics based off of Street Fighter's most infamous competitor, ''MortalKombat''. That series ironically lasted far longer.

Also an interesting note: these comics were published in Brazil (in the mid-[[TheNineties Nineties]], during the height of fighting arcades), but after the series ended, the publisher decided to carry on with local artists while continuing the numbering), by adapting ''Super Street Fighter II'' instead. Issues 4 and 5 tried to pick up the slack, with stories alluding to the American comics' events (hinting that Ken could really be NotQuiteDead during a conversation between Chun-Li and Ryu), but from 6 onwards, new editor Alexandre Nagado decided to just throw everything Malibu had done to the license into the trashcan and start anew, with Ken alive and well, characterization closer to the games (except Sagat wasn't much of a NobleDemon, as later issues would show) and a TournamentArc based on ''SSFII'' in the first three issues (i.e. 6, 7 and 8). This series then followed through with a few multi-issue stories, going through some hectic {{Schedule Slip}}s until it stopped publishing in issue 20, with an AbortedArc centered around Akuma that ended in a CliffHanger.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: {{Creator/Capcom}}'s [[DisownedAdaptation dislike of this adaptation]], and [[ComicBook/StreetFighter Udon's own comic]], makes chances of reprints pretty low.
