An interesting bit of information came out of Joe Madureira when IGN asked if there were any plans to continue Battle Chasers from issue 10...
"Currently, there are no such plans. I wouldn't have time to draw it, but I have entertained the idea of releasing the book with another creative team on it. I haven't ruled out the possibility, and I'm actually in discussions with some publishers about that very idea. So we will see."
I for one would be very excited if Battle Chasers continued even without Joe Mad! as the main artist. I'll leave you with this amazing new Battle Chasers piece by Joe Madureira.
I've found Diamond Publishers price listing for the book... it's quite steep so I'm hoping there will be a ton of extra goodies in the book. It also looks like there will be a signed/limited edition for $50 extra. I'll post more details once they become available.
