After the announcement of Darksiders Genesis last month, THQ Nordic said that the game will be playable at Gamescom this year (21-24/08/2019 in Cologne). Will Joe Madureira and some crew members of Airship Syndicate be there too? Well nothing has been announced yet but Joe was present at Gamescom for Battle Chasers Nightwar so it's highly probable! In addition, THQ Nordic finally announced the Darksiders Genesis collector's Edition and the Darksiders Genesis Nephilim Edition! The Darksiders Genesis collector's edition contains:
  • The Game Darksiders Genesis
  • A collectible Steelbook case
  • A 9-inch strife Figure
  • A artbook
  • The soundtrack
  • Some stickers
The Nephilim Edition is the same as the collector's edition plus contains the board game Darksiders the forbidden land.
You can preorder The Darksiders Genesis collector or Nephilim edition here
For your information, all the figures included into the Board game were sculpted by Hector Moran aka "HEC".
Have a look to his work more in details on Artstation:
Darksiders the forbidden land Fury figure
Darksiders the forbidden land Death figure
Darksiders the forbidden land War figure
Darksiders the forbidden land Strife figure

Unfortunately, no new Darksiders Genesis artwork to share with you in that update...
So let's get back to some older stuff... but not that old ;)

Enjoy below the first 10 pages of the Avenging Spider-Man issue #3:
And to finish, let's talk Battle Chasers for a change ;).
In the previous update of JoeMadArt.com and because that update was dedicated to the Darksiders Genesis reveal, I deliberately omitted to talk about the official Battle Chasers Anthology trade paperback new release! That new oversized graphic novel is coming this year on September 25 and will collect the Battle Chasers comics #0 to #9. The description also says that it will include some "never-before-seen sketches and new artwork" plus a fold-out poster! The preorders are already opened!

And here is the new cover of that Battle Chasers Anthology trade paperback featuring Garrison and his sword:

Also, some important information. In the last kickstarter update (June 4, 2019) Joe wrote a special message to backers with some bad news about the upcoming Battle Chasers #10-#12 comics:
Hello, backers!

I just wanted to give you an update on the status of the new BC books. First of all, thank you for your continued patience! I realize this update is long overdue.

It’s been a wild ride for us since Battle Chasers: Nightwar launched, diving headlong into our second project with no downtime. It’s a big one for us, and you’ll be getting a look at it VERY soon. Our little studio, Airship Syndicate is now close to 35 people developing not one, but two games concurrently. It’s not something we planned on, but companies grow organically. Doors open and shut, and you’ve got to play a good hand when it’s dealt. Our growth is pretty unprecedented for an indie studio, and I don’t think any of us could’ve foreseen it back when we were a team of 6, launching our Kickstarter campaign (though we dared to dream). As far as rewards, introducing some new books to the comic series seemed like a no brainer, especially since it’s been a personal goal of mine for some time.

Unfortunately, it’s proven difficult to work on them alongside my responsibilities at the studio. Realistically, the only way to get the books finished and into your hands any time soon is to recruit some highly talented individuals to help out. I’ll still be working on the story of course, and drawing as many pages as I can manage. One of the reasons I haven’t let anyone take over the series in the last 20 years is because I always felt that if it were to continue, it had to be me. Or a team I had complete faith in, and I think I’ve found that team. I’ll be releasing more details on that soon.

I realize many backers will be (understandably) upset by this news. We’ve heard from a few backers that the books were the ONLY reason they pledged. I sincerely hope those backers played Battle Chasers: Nightwar, because that’s what our campaign was for after all, and we poured our hearts and souls into it. It’s a damn good game. If you feel you can’t or simply don’t want to wait for the comics, please submit a request at support@airshipsyndicate.com and we will try to issue a refund for the unused portion of your pledge. I’m truly sorry to have let you guys down. Everyone else, I promise the wait will be worth it. This game has reinvigorated me to create new Battle Chasers stories, and I think they’ll be among the best so far.

I’ve mentioned this somewhere before, but in case you missed it, issues #10-12 will pick up exactly where the last issue left off, and focus on Garrison, his past, and his complicated relationship with the fugitive Red Monika.

In related news: I get so many people asking whether the original Battle Chasers Anthology will be reprinted, and I’m happy to announce that Image is about to relaunch it in an affordable softcover format (the original giant-sized hardcover is impossible to find, and pricey). This collects all 9 issues of the original BC run, as well as a couple short stories, pinups and covers. It launches in September, so look out for it.

Thank you again for taking this journey with us.

-Joe
