 QUICK REVIEW: Everything Skybound promised about 'Arcade Kings by Dylan Burnett, Sara Antonellini, and Walter Baiamonte was true. Amanda LaFranco, Editor at Skybound said, “Along with some incredible action and unique characters, Dylan has been able to weave a compelling story about family, brotherhood, and going all-in for the people you love. But really, it’s just flat-out fun! Both Walter and Sara’s colors are elevating each page with a vibrancy and emotion that’s inspired by our favorite classic arcade games but for any fan of epic fights and general awesomeness.” 

A vibrant, eye-popping experience that balances over-the-top anime-style fighting with grounded familial angst and emotion. It really delivers a fun exciting story that satisfies in just five issues. Burnett and company create a truly original and colorful world that is perfect for this video game meets wrestling come to life. 

'Arcade Kings' will make a great trade for comic book fans to consume in one sitting. Hopefully, it won't be the last volume.
