Akuma vs. M. Bison

M. Bison: That hurt.  Hey someone tagged all over your back!
Akuma: Oh yeah?  I must've been distracted...
M. Bison: Guess so.  Haha, loser.  You look like an idiot!
Akuma: Seems I was too busy beating you to death.
M. Bison: Awwwwww.
M. Bison: ... Shut up.

Super Street Figher II Turbo HD Remix was recently released. It's basically SSFIIT with nicely redrawn high-resolution artwork. There are some minor game play tweaks as well. So... a game from 1994 for $15: apparently the going price for nostalgia.

I got to play a little on a friend's XBox 360. And by "a little" I mean hours and hours, most of which were spent struggling over and over again to beat Akuma. This inspired me to do some simple comics based on the frustrations you invite when you step to Akuma. As a big fan of Capcom fighting games and artwork, I figure it'll be fun to do some Street Fighter fan art.

So this first one plays off of three things: (1) how, upon first appearance, Akuma beats the hell out of M. Bison, (2) how a Japanese character appears on Akuma's back for one of his win poses, and (3) how M. Bison was one of my top recruits in the many futile attempts to win this battle. The speed and range of his jump and kicks seemed like one of my best bets. But it never ended well for the man in the visor cap.

BTW, I'm aware that Bison is actually Vega, Akuma is actually Gouki, the character on his back is "ten", and there are patterns that make beating Akuma very simple. I was not aware of any of these shortcuts to victory at the time.
