Trivia / Malibu Comics' Street Fighter



Interestingly, these comics were published in Brazil (in the mid-1990s, 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 Not Quite Dead during a conversation between Chun-Li and Ryu) but already straying from the canon they established in Fei Long and Cammy's introductions. 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 being alive and well, characterization closer to the games (except Sagat wasn't much of a Noble Demon, as later issues would show) and a Tournament Arc 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 Slips until it stopped publishing in issue 20, with an Aborted Arc centered around Akuma that ended in a Cliffhanger.
