    The emotional aspect of this story is apparent yet it does not overtake the story. It is a good balance of emotion, action, and people coming together to support one another. Writer Dylan Burnett has written a masterpiece so far. If you have not started Arcade Kings the timing could not be better. This is a must read. Read Full Review

    Burnett is allowing the world to expand a little more as he introduces a new character on the other side of the narrative. As cool as the itinerant hero is in the first couple of issues, it's cooler to see a contrasting hero who is every bit as valorous while being much more firmly anchored in a single location.  Read Full Review
