New Interview with Joe Mad from Wizard

Over at wizard's website they have posted a new interview talking with Joe Madureira about what he's up to and his work on Ultimates 3, which is hitting in December by the way. Thankfully they asked if he would continue Battle Chasers but his answer has changed a bit,

"MADUREIRA: Hmm, everyone asks me about that… I don’t know. I feel like it’s been so long at this point I’d almost have to re-launch it just to get people back up to speed. I don’t know how much comic work I can realistically do with the game company totally taking off as it has. Early on I didn’t know if this thing was going to go anywhere so I kind of factored in a lot more time to work on the comic stuff than what I actually have. We’ll see. If I do a steady chunk of comic work at some point, I would love to do some Battle Chasers stuff even if it’s just smaller stories. I can’t believe that I’ll never work with those characters again. I’ll just say, “Yes, someday I’ll do more Battle Chasers.”

I've also heard that Joe's Ultimates 3 run maybe only be five or six issues...which is disappointing but understandable when you factor in he has two children to take care of and a video game company to run. That's all the news for now, enjoy.
