KoF MI comic

Today I made one of my irregular visits to a comic book shop near work, and since I've been asking about and buying the SvC comic that's been translated to english, the owner pointed out to me the KoF MI comics he now had there. I was aware that there were KoF2003 comics also being released in english, but I wasn't that interested, since I don't expect them to fit the continuity that well, especially on the long run, but the MI ones were a surprise. The shop owner also seemed surprised when I, after some quick browsing, pointed out that the comics he showed me were number 3 and 8 (these were much thinner issues than the SvC volumes available - pretty much like most US comics, also including ads) and were meant to be read right-to-left, which made him realise that: a) he had some of the numbers in-between at the shop, they weren't repeated after all (most of the back covers all look alike, and the front cover consist on the 3D character models for the game, one character per issue so far) b) he sent back number 4, assuming it was repeated to to said confusion c) he was missing the first 2 issues, so I wasn't going to buy anything unless I got it all from the beginning. I'm in two or three minds on whether to buy the series or not... anyone out there checked it out and wants to give an opinion? Some things I've taking into consideration: - I have little problem buying the SvC comic since it's a crossover thing with next to no continuity issues with the exception of the "everybody died sooner or later in the story". - it's money being spent on an SNK-derived product (even if partially, shared with Capcom), which is something I'd like to encourage, but not at any cost - ideally the re$ults of such sales could encourage a company like Udon to do some proper work on the SNK universe (I don't know if the poll at the S-C.com forums was serious, but [URL=http://www.snk-capcom.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=215600]it was certainly inspiring[/URL]) - comic series like these are unlikely to have much of a concern for the greater continuity of the games, so I'm weary to encouraging game-specific titles like this (especially after some atrocities seen in some anime and Hong Kong comics, like getting Tung and Todo killed) - I didn't play Maximum Impact - on the other hand, as if the Sakazaki ages, live Geese factor, KoF2000 strikers and non-aging of several characters wasn't proof enough that the KoF universe is pretty much the SNK Twilight Zone separate from AoF and FF, KoF XI now totally hammers that point home by having Athena's 11th KoF "yearly" appearance still be a schoolgirl outfit and tossing Kizuna characters which are meant to be from a relatively distant future. - the KoF Another Day pretty much officially links the MI series with the rest of the KoF universe, so that really can't be ignored now... even if Rock was a toddler a couple of KoFs ago yet he's MotW-sized in MI... Twilight Zone, really... can't take it too seriously... Your thoughts, people?...
