Shenmue Side Story is a 4-part comic that incorporates Chapter 2 of the Shenmue series. Naturally, it takes place between Shenmue and Shenmue II. It was included as an unlockable in the 2002 Xbox version of Shenmue II and it's re-release Shenmue I & II by taking snapshots of certain characters in the game.

The comics can be viewed by entering the "Secret" section of the snapshot menu. In the 2002 Xbox version, this can be done by pressing X three times and in the re-release there is conveniently a tab for it on the left side of the menu. There will be several pages that show thumbnails of the characters that you need to take photos of, and on the lower right corner of each page, there is a "present" icon which is were the comics can be viewed. Completing one page of characters will unlock one comic. However, the last two pages of characters unlock some artwork rather than comics.
