Foot-tastic cover for Streetfighter Legends: Ibuki issue 1.
This bit of news made me jump for joy! Udon comics has just announced Streetfighter Legends: Ibuki, a 4-issue limited series starring our favorite barefoot ninja girl! Like the previous SFL series which took on Sakura and Chun-Li, this upcoming title will reveal more about the super-cute kunoichi than ever before. Even better, the comic will also feature the spunky karate girl, Makoto! Two barefoot SF3 hotties in one book!?! AWESOME!!!
The above image, Cover B of issue 1 (done by awesome artist Jay Axer), is obviously made for our tastes (What a royal view of Ibuki's nicely-drawn feet, if I do say so myself) and bodes well for the ninja girl goodness to come. Though I have to say that artist Omar Dogan portrays a squeezably cute Ibuki, he's not the greatest at drawing bare feet- I hope he does his homework this time as his star spends most of her time shoeless after all. In any case, this is totally awesome and any ninja fan, Streetfighter fan AND foot fan has got to look forward to this when issue 1 drops on March 2010 (incidentally the same time I think that Super Streetfighter IV comes out).
Now, if this isn't a sign that Ibuki (and Makoto) are indeed slated to come out in the upcoming SSFIV, I don't know what is. Anyway, Ibuki's almost totally confirmed anyway, so all we can do is cross our fingers to have SF3 barefoot babe love in spades this coming March.
