Sketch Turner from Comix Zone

Sketch Turner, a “starving artist” and freelance rock musician living in New York City, is working on his newest comic book, named the “Comix Zone.” Comix Zone is the story of the New World Empire’s attempt to defend Earth from an invasion of alien renegades, with inspiration coming from Sketch’s (oddly vivid) dreams and nightmares.

Poison

Introduced in the first Final Fight, Poison is one of the few characters from the Capcom series to move on to a minor role in the popular fighter game, Street Fighter. She has since appeared in later artworks and cross-over games and is notably one of the top female characters in video game history.

Ryu

Ryu is notably one of Street Fighters most popular characters. Premiering in the very first Street Fighter in 1987, he’s been hadoken-ing his way through a series of sequels, crossovers, and even mangas to date.
