Exciting news for DC Collectible fans! At Toy Fair 2019 DC has revealed their upcoming lineup of releases and one is a Batman Black and White statue by Joe Madureira! Here's what DC says about the release:

"Straight from the variant cover of JUSTICE LEAGUE: REBIRTH #1 comes Batman by Joe Madureira, in a powerful stance, ready for action. This Batman Black & White piece features Madureira’s bold and graphic lines and strong character design, all sculpted into 3-D form by Paul Harding. The Batman Black & White line brings to life interpretations of the World’s Greatest Detective and select Gotham City characters from the comics industry’s brightest stars. Limited edition of 5,000 and individually numbered."


The statue can be pre-ordered online now. Image below shows Justice League: Rebirth #1, which is the comic cover the statue is based on. Here's hoping there will be some other Joe Madureira statues released in the future.

New Joker Sketch by Joe Madureira

Another backer sketch as part of the Battle Chasers: Nightwar kickstarter campaign features the Joker! Here's what Joe had to say about the drawing:

Another fun backer reward from our BC Kickstarter campaign. Some tiers let you choose specific characters, Jared chose the Joker. Slowly but surely getting through all of these. #Kickstarter #Joker #dccomics #comics #sketch #pencils #YesNewBCcomicsAreComing


In the twitter post Joe says "Yes, new BC comics are coming." As part of the Battle Chasers: Nightwar Kickstarter campaign it was stated that Joe would finish the story of his original Battle Chaser's story by releasing issues 10-12. Fans have been patiently (and not patiently) waiting for the issues to come out. Hopefully we will learn more about them in 2019.

Joe Madureira's Unnatural #8 Cover Revealed

Coming to comic stores near you on March 6th, Mirka Andolfo's Unnatural #8 will have variant 'B' covers, one of which is by Joe Madureira. If you're not familiar with the series, here's a synopsis by Image Comics:

"Leslie is a simple pig girl. She loves sushi, she's stuck with a job she hates, and she lives under a brutal totalitarian government-one that punishes transgressors for anything deemed 'unnatural.' Leslie dreams of something different for herself. But those dreams are becoming dangerous... This Italian hit series by MIRKA ANDOLFO (Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, DC Comics Bombshells) will transport you into a colorful but terrible world-full of anthropomorphic creatures, but light on personal freedoms-by way of a breathtaking plot that travels between thriller and fantasy, with a hint of sensuality."


New Sketch by Joe Madureira Featuring Gambit and Rogue from Uncanny X-Men

Rewards are still going out from the Kickstarter campaign that helped fund Battle Chasers: Nightwar. One backer reward level got you a sketch of your choice drawn by Joe Madureira. This drawing brings back all kinds of memories from Joe's run on Uncanny X-Men. During the run, Gambit and Rogue had a budding romance and now we get to see how much Joe's art has developed since those 90's stories. Here's what Joe had to say about it:

What year is this again?! The 90’s are alive and well! One of my favorite #kickstarter backer reward sketchies. Most of you were babies the last time I drew these two. πŸ˜‚ Thanks Kin! ❤️ #gambit #rogue #XMen #25yearsLater

Unnatural #8 Variant Cover by Joe Madureira Coming March 2019

It's been a quiet six months for Joe Madureira news but snooping around the news today I see he's scheduled to draw a variant cover for issue 8 of Image Comic's bestselling series 'Unnatural' created by Mirka Andolfo.

The cover hasn't been released yet but hopefully something will be released before the March 6th release. Here is Mirka Andolfo's cover for the issue.



I'd also like to thank you all for the ongoing support and wish you a Happy Holidays! Here's a classic holiday themed Joe Madureira page from Uncanny X-Men 341!

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.
