UDON is proud to announce that its latest series, DARKSTALKERS, has continued its strong retail-level sales, leading to its complete sell-out at UDON and Devil’s Due!  To meet demand, the issue will immediately go back to press with DARKSTALKERS #2 Second Printing (OCT048191) and feature a brand new cover.  

Darkstalkers is based on the classic CAPCOM action/horror franchise (most recently featured in the 2004 PS2 game CAPCOM FIGHTING EVOLUTION) that has maintained a strong following in the gaming and anime community for years and features the same creative team behind the hit Street Fighter comic series.  CAPCOM has also confirmed that a new game, DARKSTALKERS CHRONICLE: THE CHAOS TOWER, will be a launch title for the upcoming Playstation Portable (PSP) system, further exposing the franchise to the mainstream public.  To take advantage of this exposure, a print ad for the Darkstalkers comic series (which will feature the Comic Shop Locater Service information) will be included in EVERY instruction manual packed with the new Darkstalkers PSP game, as well as the upcoming X-BOX version of CAPCOM FIGHTING EVOLUTION. 
“We are extremely pleased with the really positive fan feedback we’ve received,” says UDON’s Erik Ko.  “We knew were putting together a pretty cool book and hope that with the good word-of-mouth and the print ads in the upcoming new Darkstalkers and CFE games, the readership can only continue to grow.”
“To accommodate new readers, we are keeping the first and second issues in print so that the series will be easily accessible and anyone can jump on board without missing a beat,” says Ko.  “Of course, we are also encouraging retailers to take advantage of this and increase their orders for upcoming issues accordingly. ”
