Street Fighter Compendium: Cover Reveal!
Here it is! The explosive cover by Rusty Shackles revealed! Featuring a ripped Ryu facing some of the series’ most iconic faces!
The book will be out this week! Just getting finishing touches done! It looks spectacular!
Sample Pages Updated!
I know this book looks great, but some of you might need convincing. Today I updated the Sample Pages section with a half dozen snapshots from the final product. There’s a bit of a mix: the DOS version of Street Fighter, Amiga 500 rendition of SFII: The World Warrior and a quick look at some interesting bits from Street Fighter EX. The Table of Contents is present too, to give you an idea of the book’s scope as well as just one of the 37-page-long appendix. Finally, some animations are covered.
It gives a varied peek at what to expect in the final product when it becomes available in early March! Go check them out now!

Street Fighter Compendium: A Definitive History – Coming Soon!
Coming in early March 2020, Street Fighter Compendium: A Definitive History is a massive tome covering the entire series.
After many months of toiling, the final product is near. With over 250 pages and thousands of images, screenshots and sprites, this is the most comprehensive coverage of the Street Fighter series ever put together.
The book, which will be available in both paperback and PDF form, has sections dedicated to every installment of every title. That includes all five SF main series, the Zero/Alpha games as well as the oft-neglected Street Fighter EX entries. Related items like soundtracks, books, videos & animation, related games are also included as well as nearly 40 pages of supplemental materials.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some samples, the full cover art (which is spectacular), I’ll be doing a video flipthrough and of course, will make it all available for purchase. Until then, here’s the logo. More coming soon!
