Darkstalkers Morrigan Comic Coming In March
The comics company UDON Entertainment works with a lot of video game properties, Capcom’s most prominently. They’ve published comics, art books and manga based on Street Fighter, Mega Man, Monster Hunter, Dark Souls, Persona, Bayonetta, Bloodborne, and Darkstalkers…which brings us to their latest announcement.
One of the more recognizable characters in the Darkstalkers series is the succubus Morrigan, and until now, she hasn’t had her own solo book. UDON plans to rectify that. A 32-page, one-shot comic starring the fighter will be out in early spring, written by Ken Siu-Chong (who has written other Darkstalkers comics) and illustrated by Panzer (who normally works on their Street Fighter books).
Morrigan, the sultry succubus queen of the demonic Darkstalker dimension arrives in her own 1-shot comic! Her late night escapades into the human world have accidentally unleashed a destructive force on her home dimension. Now, Morrigan must personally confront this new evil to return order to her kingdom of monsters.
Like most comics these days, Darkstalkers: Morrigan will be released in several different variant covers, with some costing more than others for no reason we can figure except they can get away with it. Here they all are:
This is the standard cover, with art by Panzer.
The first alternate has art by Hanzo Steinbach.
This one, drawn by Grnzoman, features Morrigan embracing her favorite giant syringe.
This is called “Bride Morrigan” and you can only get it through UDON’s website.
They also sell a “Dark Bride” variant, but it’s already sold out (and just as well, it cost $50).
Finally, if you don’t like any of these covers, you can draw your own with this Blank Sketch variant. Darkstalkers: Morrigan will go on sale from UDON March 30, 2022.

I wish they will make a 4th Game in the series. All these comics will do be nothing if we are not getting a new game.
