The art was very detailed, nice to look at, and Udon obviously put a lot of effort into drawing these comics.

Basically, this book is all the Darkstalkers comics published by Udon all in one book. Sadly they stopped at Volume 6 and it`s a cliff hanger from there.

The art was very detailed, nice to look at, and Udon obviously put a lot of effort into drawing these comics.

The story goes back and forth from one Darkstalker to another. For example, you`re first seeing Morrigan`s story then you go to Felicia`s and Jon`s story and then you go to Anita`s and Donovan`s story and etc. This might seem confusing but it`s not once you read this book. It`s more like taking a break from reading one character`s story.

Is it worth it? Yes it is unless you`re looking for a complete series but hey, it`s 28 bucks right now (as of 7/05/12) so why not get it. I got mine when it first came out and I think it was 30 to 40 dollars plus the shipping and handling. I first thought it was a good price then but now I`m thinking "man I should`nt have rushed..." haha.

If you like Darkstalkers, you should definitely get this book.

This book is excellent.

I had never read any Darkstalkers before, but i wanted it to add to my UDON ultimate Edition collection. The Art is simply stunning. I like how they integrated the characters mini stories as interlude through the main story. I though the story was very entertaining for my first experience with Darkstalkers. Those UDON Ultimate Edition books are something else.

If you are collecting them, then you definately need this one as well.

The art is awesome as always from Udon, and the comics themselves are very entertaining. It is very much Morrigan's story, with side stories devoted to Donovan and Felecia respectively, so it does overlook some of the cast in favor of having a streamlined and cohesive plot. The comics series appears to end of a cliff-hanger just prior to the story of Darkstalkers. Also included are a few amusing Sunday paper-style comics and some other Darkstalkers related artwork in the rear of the book.

Overall the content is well worth the buy for any fan of the series, or people interested in a crash course on the universe.

My big gripe is with the actual book itself. The glue which held the pages to the book's spin was awful, and the cover was separate from the pages after a single reading. It appears the problem is related to Udon specifically since I've seen complaints on the similar Street Fighter compilations, though the reviews only occasionally mention any trouble so it is possible
I simply got one with a bad batch of binding glue.

The individual Darkstalkers comic volumes, also sold on here, don't mention this problem so going with the them, about 10 dollars each, might be the more cautious way to go.

Format: Paperback
The packaging, the art and the whole collection in 1 book is simply amazing. UDON really did their job at creating such beautiful art in each page, the characters design and detailment is wonderful. It's a big book, the coloring on the outside is great and the details on the inside is great as well.

For all the comics released, either Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and any other from Japan, this one is by far the best I've seen in my opinion. For what it is worth, it is worth the price in owning. If you're a fan of Darkstalkers, what you've seen in the game, the coloring, the clothes, the attacks by each character, you'll see them in this book. This is an ultimate edition that should be looked at, you won't be disappointed.

The Darkstalkers series itself makes for a great book to read. Its exciting and filled with awesome characters. BUT the book is bound horribly within a few times of opening it, it fell apart.
