Iwa's Run-in: Same time.
Publisher: Happy Comics Ltd
Total Issues: 32 single issues. Not too sure if there is a compliation series as I didn't check.
Extras: none that I'm aware of.
Altrnative thing: Chen Zhuo Hua, Ye Ming Fa, Shen Kwang Ming and folks worked on this series. The dual cover of issue 5. CL one side and Mai on the other. Issue 8's cover of Ryu and Kyo smacks of a Martix poster. 28 and 29 makes up Gouki vs Mr Karate. Some lovely pin-ups that were taken from the then CVS and SVC card fighters series

- This is also the book with
here and there. Might confuse a little. At 32 issues it moves at a
fast pace with a few fights in each issue.
For most of the series CL was
with Terry and Kim Kwap Hwan. And if you wanna know Ryu and Chun Li
to speak to each other.
SNK vs Capcom Card Fighters
lads Shin and Cap plays a part in this series. The gals Kei and Comet
left out of this series.
Story starts like SVCC's demo with Ryu vs Kyo and Mr Karate and Gouki popping in and killing both boys. Turns out that it was some kind of premonition of the future courtesy of the Card fighters lads' Shin offering Ryu a chance to avoid the inevitable death by doing what else but fight in a specially created world.
After a Terry vs Iori, Kyo vs
and some further explanation of the story plot by the other Card
lad later we have Chun Li entering the issue 2. While in Osaka CL
the Shadowloo VTOL and followed to Vega's(Bison) new target Iori
To cut a long story short Vega blew up the whole earth. Thereby the folks who were chosen gets a free pass to the alternate world.
Chun Li wakes up and found
Guile, Terry and Mai. A Ken based flashbacks and tons of minor fights
(Ken vs Geese for one, Iori vs Riot of the blood Iori), even the
drops in. Its enough to dragged everybody into one issue of the
7). With Gouki and Mr Karate coming in on T-rexs ( giant lizards!!)
and the card fighter boys appear and gives the run down of the
One Balrog(Vega) and Vega (bison) vs Red Arremer later we have Ryu and Kyo beating each other up only to be disrupted by Chun Li and gang (alright so its more Terry and gang). There by we have a team up of sorts. Since everybody wants their family back they would have to wish that the world be restored. So why not work together? Get rid of the folks who want some manner of twsted desire. So the folks with the common wish to restore the world would eventually their wish. So everybody heads off to find their opponent. (after this CL dissappears who a couple of issue
There is a battle of the Claws with Choi vs Balrog(Vega), Ryu vs Sagat, Genjuro vs Demirti, Hugo vs Mai and Kasumi. Terry taking over Ryu's fight. A Hugo backstory and Kyo help the ladies and had to deal with Earthquake as well. Ken makes his appearance accept Vega's(Bison) offter to upgrade him into Violent Ken.
Back to Ryu who runs into Ryo. They both clash until the MIGHTIEEE SAIKYOOO MASTER!!!!(sorry. Dan can be rather infectious at times. Do visit their galleries) joins the fray and annoys the two men greatly. Eventually Ryu runs into Mr Karate and ended up going through a round or two until Dan interferes and Ryo showing up. And Ryu fights the mildly Gouki-powered Dan to point that that SnH (Satsui no Hadou) Ryu is drawn out to fight ROTB Iori and after that Geese Howard(who recently took on a whole bunch of fighters).
More fights later the best four joins Athena - Ryu, Ryo, Terry and Kyo. Up there they met Orange Chun Li. there's something about the lady though. And Orange CL and gang goes on to round two while Athena deals with Gouki.
We have SnH Ryu vs violent Ken and quite possibly the longest fight in the series and a flashback to their childhood for that matter. Orange CL going up against Demitri who makes the really big mistake of underestimating the power of Orange Chun Li. By the time Demitri discover who Orange Chun Li (not Mai nor the other ladies of the game.) really is, it was too late for him.
The regular Chun Li finally appears with Kim and teams up with Terry against Shiki. the trio seems to have such a hard time taking on Shiki so much that they lose a member in thr process. Only through the the ruse set up by Chun Li were they able to beat Shiki
Last Four now. Gouki pops up and settle Ryu's fight with Ken and takes him to the last few fight. The last four - Ryu, Kyo, Terry and Chun Li. The last four to fight each other before getting a shot at Gouki and Mr Karate.
Ryu vs Terry and Kyo vs Chun Li. And at the end of that we have Ryu and Kyo vs Mr Karate and Gouki. Took a while but eventually the leads did their job and move on for the final fight. Ryu goes on to fight Athena while Kyo goes and deal with Red Arremer.
At the end of that one Ryu and Kyo meets up with the God and the Devil. Their wish of restoring the world will still come but since there was no deciding the Ryu-Kyo fight. The wish comes at a price. One of them had to stay back.
So the one who had to stay told
who gets to go back to pass a message to his girlfriend (No prizes for
guessing who came back.). And that as they say is that.
Somewhere down the road of
comic the explanation of Chaos and Cosmic confuses me somewhat. Frankly
its still a good series to get if you're looking for a purely fight
with no RCL romance.
