1st Appearance of Mortal Kombat in comics?5183

Collector ComicHaulics private msg quote post Address this user
Hey guys! Does anyone know what is considered the first true appearance of Mortal Kombat in comics? We have been searching and can't find an exact answer. Then we stumbled upon this eBay listing that seemed intriguing too:




It claims the 1st appearance is in this Bruce Lee #1 as a preview.

Any info will be greatly appreciated

EDIT: Checked the CGC census and this book does have a key comment:

It looks like Blood Thunder 1 and Bruce Lee 1 came out the same month.

Blood and Thunder #1 came out July 1994
but then there this odd ball 1 shot that came out in 1992 Mortal Kombat I Collector's Edition
They are direct from Midway and were obtained by sending a money order to the address that appeared in the arcade game.

this will be hard to find i think, as it was only mail-away and only peps that cared about Mortal Kombat order it and most likely trashed it after that. happy hunting.

I can't answer the question. I like the Tekken game better.

Not the easiest book to find, though they are attainable.
There are actually two versions of this book. One with, and one without the price.
The one without the price is also missing the "Collector's Edition Comic Book" below the title.

am guessing the one with out the price, would be the mail away one, and harder to find.
