Re(2):KoF MI comic

I ended up buying the available issues... Noteworthy(?) stuff: - the story does consist on 8 considerably brief issues, and the actual KoF tournament involved starts only in the 2nd half of the whole series - in that tournament, we only get to see 2 fights (3 if you count the final boss battle, which involes circumstances probably impossible in the game) - Ryo is referred to as being 45 and only depicted with his alternate older-looking MI appearance - a nice wink to the AoF continuity, although KoF XI and the fact that Another Day links the MIs to the regular KoFs seems to have thrown any attempts at that out the window. - as in the SvC comics, there are labels in the comic panels mentioning which specials and supers are being used (although familiar characters' moves sometimes don't look or feel quite like themselves, so I don't know what most of the new MI characters' specials are meant to look like) - I can't say I like the labeling of moves int he middle of a comic much, but then again it's not like the characters are shouting the moves names (which to me seems silly most of the times)... thing is, in the MI comic they even label the evades and the game's "Stilish Combos", which adds to the odd feeling of the whole thing... Just about everything else are qualities and flaws in common with the SvC comic, although MI seems to keep in mind it's part of a larger story/continuity it tries not to mess with - then again, I get the feeling that near the end of the comic's development the people involved found there's be a game sequel, so their hands were tied when it came to reaching closure, and they couldn't do anything with characters like Mignon in the comic, so she just ends being annoying while doing the "cute-looking-but-not-quite-harmless-or-innocent" thing. Not quite Udon'd SF work, but considering what it had to work with it handled itself well. Considering its size it might have been better to just pack the 8 issues into a single book though.
