The artistic brilliance of Burnett, along with colorists Sara Antonellini and Walter Baiamonte, elevates the series. Bright, vibrant colors not only set the tone but also guide the story’s flow. The action sequences are a visual feast, especially as Ken pulls out all the stops to rescue his brother Joe. The super saiyan-like intensity adds an extra layer of excitement, and the anime-inspired paneling keeps the pacing dynamic.

The full-page spreads are nothing short of breathtaking, showcasing the artistic prowess in its full glory. Every detail contributes to the immersive experience, making each page a visual delight. AndWorld Design’s lettering deserves applause, with onomatopoeia that practically resonates, enhancing the overall reading experience.

Final Thoughts:

Arcade Kings 5 masterfully concluded an enthralling narrative, enriched by compelling storytelling, vibrant artwork, and meticulous design. Devoted fans of the series are bound to be on the edge of their seats, eagerly anticipating the next chapter in Joe and Ken’s journey after this wickedly fun and emotionally resonant conclusion.
