Updated OP: Page 45, New Cover Arts, and Promo Art completed!
October 2015, upon completing a 9 page Street Fighter mini comic with Artist Tree-Ink(www.deviantart.com/tree-ink), I had another Chun-Li comic in working in my mind. It started with meshing together a few ideas that I had for the previous mini comic that I couldn't fit in to it. And originally, I wanted it to be a slightly larger, but manageable 30 pages. But more ideas kept coming, and what started with a 30 page outline grew into 50 pages, and then eventually 60, and then finally, I've finally placed the cap on a 90 page, three-part Chun-Li centered comic.
Chun-Li has been Street Fighter's leading lady, as well as Capcom's Poster Girl for nearly 30 years. She is an iconic video game character, and the First Lady of Fighting games. In addition to having a very striking design, she also has a very compelling story about justice, revenge, strength, and heart. And while Capcom certainly has done their portrayals of Chun-Li exacting revenge against the organization that killed her father, I wanted this comic to be my own portrayal of that story arc that has driven her for years. Chun-Li takes the spotlight in an ongoing fan comic filled with hard-hitting action, dramatic moments, and your favorite Street Fighter characters.
It may have taken a little over 5 years, and this comic had to go through switching of artists after the first milestone of 30 pages, as well as a global pandemic. But here we all everyone. We have finally made it to the half-way point. And though we have a long way to go before it's 100% completed, I'm just proud of the progress we've made, and how far we have come. Never have I imagined that this fancomic would come out like this. It's one thing to have the ideas in your head, outlined, drafted, planned out with reference pics, etc. But to see it come to life on the page, it's a feeling that resonates with you for a good while. Every page, every sketch I see feels like an additional 45 Christmases/Birthdays within the past 5 years.
Of course, non of this would've been possible without my two artists. Sergio Breseno / Tree-Ink (www.deviantart.com/tree-ink), and Widodo Pangarso / LABYLABY (www.deviantart.com/labylaby). These two artists are immensely talented, and I can not thank them enough for all of their hard work, their creativity, their artistic talents, their flexibility, and cooperation. Both have their own unique styles, and ways of working with your. But both are phenomenal artists, and you will not be disappointed with their work. Please, be sure to leave a follow on their profile and to thank them for their works.
In addition to the milestone Page 45, there are plenty of other updates to the comic as well, including a few covers as well as a Promo Art to not only celebrate this moment, but to get you readers hyped for the next part of the comic.

March 3rd, 2019, almost a little under 4 years ago, I was searching for a new artist after the first one I've worked with Tree-ink left. A humble artist on this site who goes by LABYLABY (Widodo) was one of the artists who applied to take over. And here we we are, several days into the new 2023 new year and we've finally reached the next milestone of our comic: Page 60!
I can not thank Widodo enough for his passion, his artistic ability, his understanding of the themes and direction, patience, and confidence. He really has grown as an artist since I've first started working with him. And I look forward to our continued partnership as we finish the rest of the comic. We hope that all of the readers who have been following since the start have been enjoying it, and hope you'll continue until the end. We hope to have this thrilling battle come to a conclusion, and we hope it's filled with lots of surprises.

We have reached our 60 page milestone! We have 2/3 of our comic completed! This comic has gone through quite a change since we first started. But I'm loving the direction we're going. I love working with Widodo. Every update he sends me feels like another Christmas or Birthday. And it's that excitement and passion for Chun-Li and Street Fighter that keeps us going. Thank you all so much. As a treat for reaching this massive milestone, there are an additional updates that we'd love to share, including THREE brand new cover arts!!
Hope you all are excited. Please enjoy this page. And we'll do our best for the next 30 pages.
