Colors that pop on top of some nice looking artwork make this a good looking book. While you get that fun Manga style I think that the colors help balance it out to where people who aren’t fans may take notice. I looked up the character designs from the game and the characters are all true to those designs. They stay nice and fluid from pages to page, and at times it does make me think I am sitting on the couch watching an Anime.
Story: 3.0 out of 5.0
I will admit I knew what to expect going into this issue, without having read any other Darkstalker comic before. I mean it’s based off of a fighting game, but the dialogue is good enough to sustain an intriguing storyline on top of the fighting. I will want to go back and check out the first volume to get a better idea of what is going on here, but for the most part it wasn’t too bad.
