Darkstalkers Return...To Comics

UDON Entertainment can take a hint. After the tremendous response to the recently release Darkstalkers Tribute art book, the publisher is bringing Capcom's monster fighters back to comic book stands this January.

At least one company realizes how much fans of the Darkstalkers series are aching for more. A new Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors three-issue limited series kicks off in the beginning of 2010, featuring the continuing tales of Morrigan, Pyron, Donovan, and Demitri as they battle for control of the world. Expect appearances by comic newcomers Q-Bee, Anakaris, Sasquatch, Huitzil, and more throughout the course of the three books.

The series feature three connecting covers from series artist Alvin Lee, which can be seen above, as well as variant covers for each issue from Emily Warren featuring the lovely ladies and female-things of Darkstalkers. The book proper is written by Ken Siu-Chong, with artwork from UDON's Joe Vriens and Eric Vedder.

Now if only Capcom would follow UDON's lead...
