Fists, family, and video game-infused fighting—all that and more is promised in Arcade Kings.

The epic new trailer grants a sneak peek at Joe, the best player at the Round House arcade. Everyone wants to knock him off the leaderboard, but he always wins. However, his undefeated streak faces its biggest threat yet when a new fighter with ties to Joe’s past challenges him to his most physical battle yet!
Arcade Kings #1 debuts this May with 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 by Jordan Gibson 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.
