Today Skybound announced the launch of Arcade Kings, a bold new prestige series by creator/writer/artist Dylan Burnett (Cosmic Ghost Rider, Ant-Man), and colorists Walter Baiamonte and Sara Antonellini, that introduces a world of fists, family, and video game infused fighting that will leave you speechless. Arcade Kings #1 will arrive in comic book shops May 17, 2023.
Joe, a mysterious new face in Infinity City, has suddenly become the hottest new player at the Round House arcade. Anyone can challenge him, but no one can win. Joe’s secret past is about to catch up to him when his most formidable challenge yet rolls into town, forcing Joe to combo his powers with a joystick, his fists... and his fighting family legacy.
"Get ready to rumble! I cannot wait for readers to get their hands on Arcade Kings,” said Amanda LaFranco, Editor at Skybound. “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.”
Arcade Kings #1 will feature main cover art from series artist and colorist Dylan Burnett and Walter Baiamonte, along with an open to order variant from Corey Lewis. The series will also feature a 1:10 “Fighting Game” Incentive Variant program and a 1:25 “Limited Color” Incentive Variant program featuring the main cover inks by Dylan Burnett.
Arcade Kings #1 will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
