It's one of the few non-superhero creator owned titles to ever hit the No 1 spot in the charts. Battle Chasers by Joe Madureira. Both commerically and critically popular, it cemented his career after a popular run on the X-Men's Age Of The Apocalypse when it was published by Cliffhanger/Wildstorm. But then it got later and later… and stopped. Madueira worked at the Big Two and set up a successful games company but of Battle Chasers, there was no more.
But now it seems that he has left Virgil Games and Darksiders behind, writing;
Farewell and best wishes to all my brothers and sisters at Vigil Games! After 7 long years and 2 hit games ( Darksiders BABY! ) I'm afraid the time has come for me to move on to new adventures. I could not be more proud of what we achieved, or the awesome people who helped build up this studio. I can safely say Vigil's future is in very good hands, so expect only awesomeness down the road. This feels surreal…I miss the place already.
And then tweeting;
I'll be talking more about 'The Next Big Thing' in the coming months, but in the short term, I'm focusing on banging out a bunch of comics. Which should hopefully sate your hunger, you bloodthirsty savages!!! (*believe it or not that's a term of endearment. )
