Battle Chasers

 BL88   (Image, 1998-2001)

ô and ©1998 Joe Madureira

(From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

Itís almost an unwritten rule that all fantasy comics are poor, yet Joe Madureira may well be the first to buck the trend since Conan the Barbarian. Thus far, Battle Chasers combines elements of Tolkien, Star Wars, and the Roman Empire to good effect, introducing an intriguing, although hardly original, cast including an aged wizard, young neophyte, an enormous battle robot who loves nature, and a woman with the biggest breasts in the world. Well dialogued by the previously unknown Munier Sharrieff, Madureiraís impressive action art completes a stylish and enticing package. ~WJ
