Ah man, I think I'm going to be stupid and pre-order this game. I mean, Akuma... come on! As for the comic, I'll read it, but I won't pretend to be excited. I've read Tekken comics before and they were shit; now I have lowered expectations.
Titan Comics are thrilled to announce the phenomenal creative team of writer Cavan Scott (Doctor Who, Vikings: Uprising) and artist Andie Tong (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) who kick-off the exciting new TEKKEN comic series in May 2017!
Based on the smash hit video game series, Titan is working closely with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment to deliver exciting in-universe tales. Hitting stores in May 2017, sensational new comic series will tap into TEKKEN’s rich history and will feature memorable characters from the celebrated video game canon including Jin Kazama, Heihachi Mishima, Yoshimitsu, Nina Williams and Paul Phoenix.
“I’m so excited to be bringing the explosive world of TEKKEN back to comics.” said writer Cavan Scott, “I’ve been a fan of the series ever since I slipped the first game into my PlayStation back in 1995. We’re having great fun delving into the series’ history to bring back some familiar faces, along with all the fan-favorite fighters you’d expect. There’s going to be intrigue, danger and, of course, knock-out battles galore!”
This hotly anticipated debut issue comes with five art covers to collect by artists Alex Ronald (Mycroft Holmes), Andie Tong, Anton Kokarev (Evil Dead 2: Beyond Dead By Dawn), Jimbo Salgado (Assassin’s Creed® Uprising), and Nick Percival (Dark Souls).
Titan Comics’ TEKKEN #1 hits stores and digital platforms in May 2017 and is available for order from the March edition of PREVIEWS.
