Hollywood Reporter Interview with Joe Madureira and new Battle Chasers 10 Artwork by Ludo Lullabi

Joe Madureira did a small interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the in-progress continuation of Battle Chasers 10-12 written by Joe and drawn by Ludo Lullabi. I'll pull out some of the highlights below. About Battle Chasers 10: The new comic is due to hit by year’s end, once again from publisher Image Comics, and will be followed monthly by no. 11 and no. 12, with a goal to tell a complete story arc. Madureira is writing the comic but, as opposed to the previous issues, not drawing. Instead, he handed those duties to Ludo Lullabi, whom he discovered while making 2017’s Battle Chasers: Nightwar role playing game. He does plan on drawing variant covers , however. And to whet appetites, the return issue will be 32 pages, no ads. "I just want to make a cool comic that people talk about," Madureira says. "It may be a little more edgier, a bit more mature than before. I’m curious to see how it will be received." About Battle Chasers delays; past and present: Ma

Battle Chasers Issue #10 Announced by Joe Madureira

  The moment we've all been waiting for! Today Joe Madureira put up a teaser image for Battle Chasers #10 on his social media channels. The image depicts Red Monika, Calibretto, Garrison, and Knolan in the background with Gully front and centre. Her gauntlets are glowing red with energy and the "#10" is within the electric linework. Battle Chasers #9 was released back in September 2001, and over the years Joe has wanted to come back to the series to at least finish off the cliffhanger and story that the book ended with. In the meantime Joe has been very successful in the video game industry and even released a Battle Chasers JRPG/dungeon crawler called Battle Chasers: Nightwar that was initially funded by kickstarter. Interviews with Joe over the last 10 years, journalists asked many times about the future of Battle Chasers and whether or not he would return to the series. Those answers varied over that time and most recently he mentioned potentially getting another artis

Joe Madureira Comic Collection Checklist

I found a neat comicbook community site called 'League of Comic Geeks' that's a great resource to organize your personal collection, manage your pull list of upcoming comics as well as track your reading list. I personally love the simple and clean design of the site and it has just the right amount of information for each book as well as all the covers/variant covers of issues. There's a feature called 'Community Lists' where you can post anything from story arc reading orders, to famous cover swipes over the years. I went ahead and made a Joe Madureira comic collection checklist that contains most of his works in comics! If it's something you're interested in you can check it out at League of Comic Geeks: Joe Madureira Comic Collection Checklist , and I will add it to my collection page on this site as well. Enjoy!

Ruined King: A League of Legend Story Gameplay Reveal Trailer at the Game Awards

During the 2020 Video Game Awards there was a gameplay reveal trailer for the upcoming title 'Ruined King: A League of Legends Story' developed by Airship Syndicate and supported by Riot Forge. It features some animated cut scenes as well as gameplay of the dungeon crawling RPG. The similarities to 'Battle Chasers: Nightwar' are clear, but that's a good thing in my opinion... it's very much a game design style Airship Syndicate thrives at. Looking forward to this coming out in 2021 to console and PC.

Eurogamer Interview with Joe Madureira and Leanne Lombe Featuring Character Art for Ruined King: a League of Legends Story

Over at Eurogamer they spoke to the head of Riot Forge, Leanne Lombe, as well as Airship Syndicate CEO Joe Madureira about some of the details on Ruined King: a League of Legends Story. Some larger canvas images of the League of Legend champion characters Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Pyke, Ahri and Yasuo were also posted. Below is the interview from Eurogamer: "This one is narratively focused," Madureira said, for one. "So the characters are constantly interacting in and out of battle - the adventure and story elements are just as important as the combat." Although there's no romancing - condolances to thirsty BioWare fans - Madureira did promise it was a "true RPG", with "a lot of exploration and interaction with both the environments and tonnes of NPCs." There are also more League of Legends characters set to make an appearance, Madureira said, although he wouldn't elaborate any further. "We had a world map in Battle Chasers, w

The champions include: Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Pyke, Ahri and Yasuo. Drawn by Joe Mad below! The game is coming early 2021 to Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Steam, the Epic Games Store, and soon after to Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X|S (Owners of the PS4/Xbox One version can upgrade for free to next-gen).
