COMICONI have poured my heart out in this article and told you next to nothing about the issue and I think that’s okay. Because I’ve waited more than half my life for this issue of Battle Chasers and I’m not disappointed.

You Don't Read ComicsThe only problem with Madureira’s pacing is that it takes SO LONG for a plot to develop. A typical writer might have chosen to try to cram both #10 and #11 into a single normal-length issue. With Lullabi as the artist, it could have even worked that way, but Madureira’s a lot more patient than that, and what results is gorgeous in places. (Red Monika continues to be fairly dazzling even in the presence of a giant monster.) It’s kind of difficult to feel an emotional connection with much of what’s going on on the page, though the series has been back for two months now and very little has happened. It looks really, really good, though.
Comical OpinionsBATTLE CHASERS #11 gives fans of action/adventure everything they want in a comic – dangerous beasts, epic battles, gritty drama, powerful emotion, amazing art, and jaw-dropping surprises. This issue is a winner.
AIPTAll told, Battle Chasers‘ 11th issue is a darn fine comic. The action is bold and creative. The character work is strong. The story beats are intriguing. And Lullabi’s color work is really, really striking — especially a gradual and then sudden shift in primary page colors from a dusky orange to an increasingly supernatural blue — one executed in concert with a solidly assembled and exciting cliffhanger. It was great to get Battle Chasers back with issue #10. Issue #11 proves that it has staying power beyond that welcome novelty. It’s well, well worth checking out.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: An exciting, thrilling and engaging story from start to finish. The plot continues to grow and evolve throughout the story and grabbed my attention with every twist and turn. I love the characters immensely and love being transported back into this world and its lore. I love where the story leaves both characters at the end and look forward to seeing what comes next. The Art: Lullabi delivers some fantastic visuals throughout the issue. The art is vibrant and beautifully detailed as it portrays blistering action and amazing character designs.
Nerd InitiativeMadureira and Lullabi never waste a second in bringing the action in this can’t miss issue. Great writing and phenomenal art depict a swordsman valiantly fighting against the odds and himself. There’s no doubt this series is a must-have for all comic readers. Don’t miss out on picking up this issue!
ComicBook.comBattle Chasers #11 slows the story down after its long-awaited return, focusing entirely on Garrison and Monika's current predicament and not providing any resolution to the positions they found themselves in at the end of Battle Chasers #10. It plays out the set up and start of two action sequences, neither of which are terribly satisfying on their own given the decompressed pacing. Some background is embedded in dialogue as the villains hunting Garrison are revealed to have sympathetic motivations, but even this is primarily composed of hints and allusions. The hulking forms on the page and a handful of action sequences bring the visceral and aesthetic thrills readers associate with the title, but even this aspect is notably diminished from the prior installment. After years away it seems that Battle Chasers is reluctant to arrive at any sort of point.
