Comics just announced they are launching a new TEKKEN comic series
as the King of Iron Fist 7 is about to begin. The story will be written by Cavan
Scott (Doctor Who, Vikings: Uprising) and the interior
artwork drawn by Andie Tong (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Titan
says the comic "will tap into TEKKEN's rich history, and
will feature memorable characters from the celebrated video game
canon." Below, check out some of the covers (each drawn by a
different artist) and even some interior pages.
The cover artworks above
were drawn by Alex Ronald, Andie Tong, Anton Kokarev, Jimbo Salgado, and
Nick Percival respectively.
Writer Cavan Scott stated "I'm so excited to be bringing the
explosive world of Tekken back to comics." said Scott
in a statement. "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!"
TEKKEN #1 is
planned for release in May 2017. Both physical and digital editions will
be available for purchase.
