Volleyball! Basketball! Surfing! Swimming! The lovely ladies of Street Fighter are back for a new summer sports-themed pin-up special! Veteran World Warriors like Chun-li, Cammy, Rainbow Mika, and Sakura welcome newcomers Menat, Kolin, and more!

It’s definitely a book from another time (the summer of 1993 or thereabouts), but the art is cute and colorful throughout and I have to appreciate the coloring. It’s not for me, but the people who might want nice posters of Street Fighers in their swimming costumes won’t be disappointed.
Matthew's Thoughts
There was a time when I had no problem grabbing a special issue like this, as pinups were hard to come by, and I do like pinup art (cheesecake, beefcake, etc.), but today we have Twitter, and DeviantArt, and a hundred other places where awesome fan art is being made featuring not only the Street Fighter characters, but anyone else you can think of as well. That’s not to say this is a bad book – the art is great (and not so great at times), but I can get the same pinup art elsewhere and for free.Hard Pass.Stephen's Thoughts
