In order to celebrate their 10th anniversary and continuing relationship with Capcom, as well as mark the publishing of their 150th original book, UDON Entertainment has released Street Fighter Origins: Akuma.

One of the most feared fighters in the world, Akuma, Master of the Fist and wielder of the Dark Hado, has always been a Street Fighter fan favorite. Never before though have we been able to learn just how Akuma came to be and what drove him down his sinister path. Following him from his youth in rural Japan, we see how this once innocent boy becomes trapped on the path of chaos.

Even if you’re not a big fan of Street Fighter, at the very least you can always appreciate UDON’s high quality work. Artist Joe Ng delivers the kind of breathtaking visuals that define UDON books, and Chris Sarracini’s story makes sure there’s plenty of action, which you’d expect would punctuate the early life of someone as destructive as Akuma.

Street Fighter Origins: Akuma is a 128-page, 8” x 11” hardcover graphic novel retailing for $34.95. The title is available now wherever comic books are sold.
