Bizarro Back Issues: Malibu’s Ultraviolent ‘Street Fighter’ Comic (1992)

Street Fighter, Malibu Comics

I've never been good at playing fighting games, but when I was growing up, there were few things in this world I loved more than Street Fighter. I think I've mentioned this before, but my first memory of actually trying to make a comic was when I was ten years old and I drew the junkyard fight scene from Batman #425 and replaced the bad guys with Blanka and Dhalsim, and really, you can draw a pretty straight line from that to where I am today. I've even written a tiny little bit of Street Fighter comics myself, and I am still very much a person who thinks karate guys throwing fireballs at each other is the highest form of art.

Of course, they didn't exactly make it easy for us to like Street Fighter back then. The games were great, sure, but if you wanted a little more story about it on this side of the Pacific, your options were pretty slim. There was the movie in 1994, and the cartoon that was somehow a sequel to it, but if you wanted to see those characters in comics, you had only one choice: Malibu's Street Fighter --- the comic so legendarily rough that it was canceled after three issues with an apology from the publisher.

‘Wolverine: Top Secret’ Takes That Lovable Grump To The Prom

animated wolverine

In 1994, X-Men: The Animated Series was still going strong, and X-Men comics were buoyant. Things were going pretty poorly for Wolverine on both counts; season three of the cartoon began with his delicate ex returning as Lady Deathstrike and moved quickly into the Phoenix Saga, whilst March brought the wedding of Scott and Jean into the pages of X-Men. That poor sad gravelly muscle beast! Marvel took pity on him, I suppose, and farmed out publication of Francine Hughes’ Wolverine: Top Secret. It’s a novel. It’s for young readers. The first chapter is called Chapter 1: The Prom.

Comics, Everybody: The History of The Vision Explained!


Thanks to Avengers: Age of Ultron, the movie-going world has now been introduced to one of the stranger Marvel heroes, the synthetic android Vision, played onscreen by Paul Bettany. A sightly spooky kinda-robot with feel feelings (sometimes) and a crush on a witch, and a mechanical dad and magic babies (but not really), he's a confusing character to get to grips with, which makes him the idea subject for the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again and colorist Jordan Gibson are here to educate you about Vision's complicated history of upgrades, downgrades, and reboots.
