★★★★☆ (4/5)

QUICK REVIEW: 'Arcade Kings' by Dylan Burnett, Walter Baiamonte, and Sara Antonellini is a fun vibrant comic for all ages. It's a smorgasbord of cartoony art, arcade game aesthetics, and anime-style action with some pro wrestling love mixed in. With so much going on, the unbeatable Joe faces his biggest challenge yet and the mystery surrounding this "arcade king" is revealed. Joe must walk the earth to find what he's looking for. Burnett's designs are bold including nostalgic winks at classic arcade games, the brash vibrant colors of Baiamonte and Antonelli infuse it with life, and Andworld's lettering and sound effects create a video game come to life. Charming with exciting fighting action, 'Arcade Kings' wields an irresistible blend of genres into a potent funhouse for all readers.
