    How much you enjoy this series depends on what you want to read. If you simply want to see Capcom's fighters beating the hell out of each other, you'll get that. However without a decent story to back that up, I wonder why interested parties wouldn't simply fire up one of the videogames (particularly the soon-to-be-released Street Fighter II HD game that's nearly here). Yes, it is true that comics can go after a singular purpose, say action with little or no reason, but it has to do it well, and Siu-Chong's script is not effective at setting the fighting stage, nor does it simply aspire to be that. He tries to add depth, and his attempts fall completely flat, marring what could be a simple beat 'em up. Moreoever, these characters could certainly benefit from more in-depth histories. They're practically blank slates at the moment, begging for a capable writer to develop them into engaging, three-dimensional creations. Thus far, fans of the franchise aren't so lucky.
