Artwork, cover and brackets revealed for IDW’s STREET FIGHTER X G.I. JOE!

We’ve been given an advance look at IDW’s eagerly anticipated Street Fighter X G.I. Joe miniseries, including a look at the covers, the variants and some of Emilio Laiso’s dynamic interior artwork.

The brackets break down what confrontations we can expect to see in each issue, with a proper tournament format being laid out by writer Aubrey Sitterson. Here’s how it breaks down;

ISSUE 1:
Rufus vs. The Baroness
Crimson Viper vs. Snake Eyes
Hakan vs. Roadblock
Ryu vs. Jinx

ISSUE 2:
M. Bison vs. Cammy
Storm Shadow vs. Croc Master
Dan vs. Chun-Li
Gung-Ho vs. Guile

The subsequent issues will see the field narrowed down to two finalists, and an ultimate champion being announced in the fifth and final issue. You can feast your eyes on the covers, solicitation information and some of the artwork below, and if you like what you see, make sure to register your interest at your local comic shop ahead of Monday’s retailer FOC.

The first issue of Street Fighter X G.I. Joe #1 is scheduled for release on Feb 24th.
