    COMICON

    Arcade Kings is the best video game adaptation of a video game that never existed.

    Arcade Kings #4 is an excellent culmination of the series thus far. It plays well on the tropes and does precisely what it intends to do. While this story feels cartoony and doesn’t have the same depth as other stories, it achieves its intended goals and fits nicely into the genre. It is not a perfect book, but I find little fault with what the creative team sets out to do.

    This action packed issue had its twists and turns making readers feel for both Joe and Ken. With one issue left in the series it’s gearing up for an insane final ride! Make sure this one is on your pull list to catch the epic conclusion next month!

    Arcade Kings takes a noticeable turn with Issue #4, stripping away most of the retro video game and anime concepts to leave the reader with a simple yet heart-wrenching argument between brothers that devolves into an intense fistfight. In the hands of a lesser team, an issue like this might’ve crippled the book and left readers with a sense of hollowness once all the iconography and references are stripped away. But Dylan Burnett and company have created a world and characters with real depth, leaving the readers just as heartbroken as Joe once the fight is over.

    ‘Arcade Kings’ continues to be an exciting and heart-rending adventure carefully and beautifully executed by a creative team that respects its characters and its audience. It’s not just about big eye-popping fights but the fragility of a brotherhood that’s been torn apart. It’s simply great storytelling.
