UDON Entertainment is putting together a Street Fighter-themed comic book in celebration of Free Comic Book day. In it, notable players from the fighting game community make guest appearances.

Entitled "Street Fighter: Sakura vs. Karin #1," the two combatants take their challenge from the streets to the sticks as early previews show these ladies going head-to-head in what is likely Street Fighter 5.

Sakura and Karin, though from the Street Fighter Alpha series, appear to be sporting their Street Fighter 5 character designs in this book. UDON has shared a handful of preview panels of the upcoming issue on Twitter, as well as the cover.

"Do martial arts skills transfer to eSports skills?? Find out when you pick up STREET FIGHTER: SAKURA VS KARIN #1, UDON'S 2019 Free Comic Book Day title!" the official UDON Twitter account writes. "Stop by your local comic shop on Saturday, May 4 and grab your copy! #FCBD"

The company has also shown us a glimpse of some very familiar faces from the FGC within this book's pages. Apparently, REC|Punk and Tempo|Alex Meyers act as eSports judges in this story.

Additionally, CYG|Daigo The Beast Umehara also makes an appearance as the person who aims to hand the trophy over to the winner of the bout.

Hit up your local comic book store this Saturday to snag a copy of Street Fighter: Sakura vs. Karin #1.
