These full-color comics actually form a combat game nearly identical to the Lost Worlds Fantasy Combat Books. The comic book format allows the artists to insert speech bubbles for flavor, and the character sheets are smaller, but otherwise the rules are the same as in Lost Worlds. The series was introduced with the release of limited-edition "blue print" (non-colored) versions of the first nine characters; full-color versions (the "Streets of Fire" series) with different covers, along with additional characters, soon followed. After the main line of BattleBooks was discontinued, new versions of the Shi and Wolverine books were released as the "Judgment Night" series. The original Shi book actually ended up having three versions: the "blue print" version plus two different color editions, one with a Ross cover, the other with a Tucci cover. The Darkchylde book had two versions: one with a Queen cover and one with a Tucci cover.
