Here’s a Peek at Streetfighter Legends: Ibuki#3 Cover Art!
Streetfighter Legends: Ibuki Issue 3 Cover B by Adam Warren.
Okay, here’s a small look at the cover art for Issue 3 of Streetfighter Legends: Ibuki from UDON Comics. While the ‘Cover A’ art is always done by the comics’ main artist Omar Dogan, a guest artist is always taken on to do an alternate Cover B. This time it’s from US mangaka Adam Warren, known for his work in Dark Horse Comics for Dirty Pair and most recently for his own original character, Empowered.
While I’m usually a fan of Warren’s works, I have to say I’m not that hot with his cover. While it has his customary flair for action, I find various elements of it iffy- I mean, what’s with Ibuki’s pants? Yeah, they’re supposed to be baggy but making them look like a Shar Pei’s skin is a bit overdone. Plus why is Ibuki in the background as well as being in the foreground? Odd bit of composition there… perhaps it would have been better if the character looking ominously from the back is someone else- either the Geki ninja antagonists or perhaps Oro, who is supposedly Ibuki’s final test in the issue. Oh well.
Anyway… that said, I’ll probably still pick this alternate cover over Omar Dogan’s usual minimalist white background regular cover. I liked Issue 1, even if it was much too damn short, so I’ll be picking up the rest of the issues as well. Hopefully issue 2 will be out this month, and perhaps I’ll do a back-to-back review for the meantime. More as I get it, then.
Series’ main artist Omar Dogan does Cover A.
