Introducing the Joe Madureira Fan Site Instagram Account

I've thought about doing something like this for a long time and it's finally happening! I've created a new instagram account to post Joe Madureira comic covers from my personal collection. If you'd like to give it a follow, check it out here.

The purpose of the account, besides having a nice visual way of cataloging my own personal Joe Mad collection, is to be a regular source of inspiration/nostalgia for all Joe Madureira and comic book fans.

If you’re into this I hope you follow and enjoy the content!

Thanks to everyone who have continued to follow this Joe Madureira fan site. Fingers crossed we’ll get some nice new Airship Syndicate game news in the near future, as well as some new Joe Mad! art.

Joe Madureira Draws Character From His Early Marvel Career; Cerise from Excalibur

I guess Joe Madureira has been feeling nostalgic as of late since his latest post to social media is a sketch of a character from one of his first gigs at Marvel Comics. Joe was hired right out of high school for his comic art talents and illustrated Excalibur issues 57 and 58.

Here is the tweet from Joe as well as the sketch and a screenshot of his old art. You can see how much he has refined his artwork; even in his tweet he says "Can't believe they hired me."

New Battle Chasers Artwork From Creator Joe Madureira Featuring Gully Grown up!

Give it up to Joe Madureira to set the internet a blaze with a new piece of artwork. This time around he's teased fans of his Battle Chasers comic series with a new piece of art featuring one of the protagonists, Gully, all grown up as a mature teen(?). It's a great sketch and the reaction has been positive with fans asking if the art is a tease for new comics or for a sequel to the Battle Chasers: Nightwar game. With Airship Syndicate's resent release of 'Darksiders: Genesis' on PC (console versions are due out in February) and 'Ruined King: A League of Legends Story,' there's still ONE unannounced game that's in development. Fingers crossed that it's a sequel to Battle Chasers: Nightwar.

Gully, all grown up! 💕— Joe Madureira (@JoeMadx) January 18, 2020

Gunfire Games Shares Joe Madureira Storyboard Art From Darksiders II

The crew over at Gunfire Games felt generous and posted storyboard art from Darksiders II drawn by Joe Madureira on social media. Joe was one of the founders of Vigil Games who developed Darksiders I & II, and was the creative lead for the games. After Darksiders II was released Vigil Games was shut down due to THQ going bankrupt. Gunfire Games eventually took the reins on continuing the Darksiders series. Enjoy the artwork, featuring 'Death', the protagonist of Darksiders II.
