    COMICON - Anton Kromoff Jun 15, 2023

    I've waited over 20 years for Battle Chasers to return and I can say with zero hesitation that it was worth the wait. The story, character development, and world-building is a masterclass in sword and sorcery elevating the genre while at the same time making it uniquely its own. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 14, 2023

    Its a more or less seamless extension of the series that was abandoned two decades ago. Madureira and company are picking it up like the last 20 years didnt even happen. Theres an almost heroic level of integrity in that faithfulness to the original series. Its a quick, breezy jaunt from beginning to end. Monika and Garrison return in a thoroughly enjoyable adventure that will hopefully lead to a series that runs much longer than the original one. Madureira and company have firmly resurrected a series that didnt appear to have any chance of ever returning to the comics rack. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Jun 15, 2023

    BATTLE CHASERS #10 forces Garrision and Red Monika to run for their lives from a squad of deadly hunters for a nail-biter of an issue. The story delivers heaps of action laced with dramatic nuance and tension. As a bonus, Lullabi's art is phenomenal. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Justin Harrison Jun 14, 2023

    It is so much fun to have Battle Chasers back. Ludo Lullabi's illustrations are very fine, and Joe Madureira's script carries the energy that made the original comics so much fun alongside some welcome breathing room for the cast to grow. This is going to be fun to follow. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jun 14, 2023

    Although the story itself is filled with familiar fantasy tropes and the characters all resemble archetypes encountered all too often, Battle Chasers #10 moves too quickly for those tedious elements to detract much from a still-stylish return. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 14, 2023

    Battle Chasers #10 is frustrating. It isn't the welcome return one would hope and instead feels like a series and project whose time has passed. Like many “classic” series revived, it doesn't stand up so well and the nostalgia isn't quite enough to really hook you. Overall, a bummer. Read Full Review

    Pretty good. I'm glad to finally see this series resume. It could've been a bit better, but after a 2 decade hiatus should one really expect perfection?
    Lullabi's art is a decent enough replacement. And let's face it, if we waited for Madureira to do the art we'd likely be waiting another 20+ years for #11.
    I'm sure most will agree that it's a welcome thing to see this unfinished series continue. The plot is simple enough, but over the years I really hoped for better should it have resumed. It's good enough, but it's pretty evident that Madureira's heart wasn't as in this as he more likely did this out of a sense of obligation. This series was the blast off hit of 1998 and had the potential to become big for years. It was truly a more
