So a few things, first it seems that Joe does indeed own the www.JoeMad.com domain and is finally using it to be an online store for his work. It seems he'll sell exclusive covers to comics (much like J Scott Campbell does with www.jscottcampbell.com). So we should see variant covers for sale and perhaps this will be the storefront the new Battle Chaser's comics could be on?

Second, Joe is doing exclusive Batman #50 variant covers, which is the issue featuring Batman and Catwoman's wedding. So expect them and the Bat Family to be on the cover(s).

Third, YES, you read that right, there will be multiple covers. The new JoeMad.com Batman #50 store page has the following description.

Is DC Comics bringing back the Cliffhanger! comic label?

Over at BleedingCool.com they have received some information that DC Comics is registering the trademark 'Cliffhanger!' for comic books, graphic novels and electronic downloadable publications.


Cliffhanger! was a creator-owned imprint by Wildstorm that brought together Joe Madureira (Battle Chasers), Humberto Ramos (Crimson), and J Scott Campbell (Danger Girl). Wildstorm was bought by DC Comics years ago so they inherited the Cliffhanger imprint but it has since been phased out after Danger Girl and Crimson completed their runs and Battle Chasers ended on an actual cliffhanger.

Now that this rumour of Cliffhanger! being registered is out in the open, what is DC Comics doing with it? Is this the first step in the continuation of Battle Chaser's? Joe Madureira promised to continue the comic series with a 3-issue story arc during the Battle Chasers: Nightwar Kickstarter campaign. Fingers crossed that this is the first sign of the continuation of the series! I'll have m…

Red Monika and Zelda Breath of the Wild Sketch by Joe Madureira

In celebration of Battle Chasers: Nightwar releasing on the Nintendo Switch Joe Madureira posted a hilarious sketch of Red Monika showing Link her tri-force tattoo saying "Hey...big fan."

Battle Chasers 2 at E3 anyone? One can dream.

Watch the Battle Chasers: Nightwar Documentary by Gameumentary

The Battle Chasers: Nightwar Documentary by Gameumentary is out now!

The doc goes through the formation of Airship Syndicate and the development of the game based on Joe Madureira's classic Battle Chaser comic book series.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar Documentary Trailer

The crew over at Gameumentary is fresh off of finishing the Darksiders documentary and have released a trailer for their next project, a documentary on Battle Chasers: Nightwar. If it's anything like the Darksiders doc then expect lots of great behind the scenes insight on the development and design of the game. You'll see creative director Joe Madureira and the whole team at Airship Syndicate discussing the process of bringing their kickstarter idea to life and the hurdles they had to jump along the way.

Looking forward to this! The full documentary will be releasing on May 8th.
