Udon To Compile Their Darkstalkers Comics Into One Large Graphic Novel

By Ishaan . May 8, 2012 . 2:30pm

From 2005 to 2009, Udon published a series of Darkstalkers comics, which they’re now compiling into a large 264-page book. Titled Darkstalkers: The Ultimate Edition, the graphic novel contains every Darkstalkers and Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors comic, along with variant covers and rare illustrations.


The Darkstalkers: The Ultimate Edition book is listed for a price of $50 on Udon’s website. Amazon, of course, have it available for cheaper—you can grab it off their store for $30.29. Here’s a few lo-res preview pages:

    Oh wow that’s great! I’m not really into Darkstalkers, honestly, the only character I’m really familiar with is Morrigan! She’s awesome. Such a great sample page! ღ(‘∀’ღ●)♡

    My only concern with the omnibus, or anthology collections, is the sheer size of the comic. They are often difficult to read, and they are quite heavy. Though, at 264 pages, I’m sure it wont be a problem! 

    I’m always amazed at the steep discounts on Amazon! I’ll have to pick it up there! (◕‿◕✿)

  • *Gasp* Yeahhhhhh!!! Oh god each page is just exploding with some much awesomeness that it ridiculous like that upper cut that felicia did to that wolf dude priceless.

  • Nice!

    I might just get this once i get some extra cash, i got some Udon Street Fighter comics and i wanted to see how they did with Darkstalkers so this might be a good way to get my hands on them.

  • I have had it preordered for quite a while in Amazon. I really love the way Udon does their stories and respect the already established lore but builds upon it. Plus I just love Darkstalkers.

  • Nice, might pick this up.

    I actually have this and its amazing, the art looks wonderful. Which is something I always worry about when they print these larger books. Just in case anyone is wondering its the same size as many traditional artbooks.

    Felicia’s standing in for Capcom uppercutting Talbain out of every crossover he should of been in. 

  • I used to buy the DarkStalkers comics they sold as singles. Just so you people know they discontinued it in the middle – it has no ending.

    So if they have the time and resources to release this then why has their not been a Robot translation in years? I would legitimately like to know why.
