Delta Blue charges in for a full-throttle assault on the deadly master of poisons, F.A.N.G! Who will be saved, and who will succumb to the iron will of Shadaloo? Find out in the final issue of Street Fighter Legends: Cammy!
If there’s one thing Jim has done here is that I wish this were an ongoing series. The idea of Cammy leading an elite unit in service to England where they go after those major threats is fantastic. Of course this one settles the issue of her team having been under Shadaloo control at one point and if they can be trusted or not. He’s introduced a solid new direction for her and her team and one that incorporates their unique skill sets so that we can have all the action/adventure and intrigue that helps to keep expanding this franchise.
With the way that Omar has kept the interiors looking like a solid cartoon doesn’t hurt either. The use of page layouts with angles and perspective are used extremely well. Even the use of backgrounds here in this lair have all the feel we need for really getting into this experience as well. I like the attention to detail he puts into this and how he makes this world come alive for us. Also his action sequences are top notch here and considering that’s what the franchise is known for that’s great to see.
We get to see what F.A.N.G. wanted with all these former agents of Shadaloo this issue and that revelation shouldn’t have come as a surprise but it kind of does. I like the explanation we’re given in bringing back the biggest of the bad to life and how each one plays their role in making that happen. It’s a smart way to do it and I have to give some major props to Jim for being able to make the revelation shocking and believable in this scenario. Also with this character’s return the Delta Blue Unit is going to be needed more than ever and that’s another aspect of things that promises for an exciting future.
Jim really does an excellent job here turning this story into something larger than just an offshoot of the main title. He introduces us to another faction from another country where those we normally see in tournaments play crucial roles in keeping their country and by extension the world safe from harm. He also manages to ensure that there will be no questions about their loyalty or courage in the face of insurmountable danger. He sets a new standard for the franchise by branching out and giving them all their own unique place in an ever changing and more dangerous world.
Breaking the boundaries of the game franchise in new and exciting ways this is a must read for those wondering what the characters are all about and for those who just love to play the game!
