“To have the opportunity to continue working on Battlecats is always exciting! Not only is this story near and dear to my heart, but watching the characters evolve throughout each volume is something I’m really proud of. This will be our final volume of the series, and I have to say with all the hard work from our team, this is our best work yet! It’s been a truly rewarding experience, and I’m beyond grateful for having an excellent team to create with. I couldn’t have done it without Mike, Tekino, Miguel, Gio, and Chris. We can’t wait for fans and new readers to be a part of our grand finale, and to see all the Madness that comes from Battlecat Vol.3.”
– Writer, Mark London
“I liked working on Vol. 3, because, without giving too many spoilers, I was able to explore new locations within Valderia and since it is such a diverse world, it was very interesting to bring those places to life through a different variety of colors.”
– Artist, Tekino
“It has been a pleasure for me to work on this amazing story that Mark has created, in this wonderful world of Valderia, in their conflicts and principally their characters. Along with an amazing team like Tekino and Ricardo in the color and the entire MadCave design team, we did the best we could to make a fantastic art, thanks to all of them it has been a wonderful experience” – Artist, Michael Camelo
Soda and Telepaths – Anthony Pollock
“This is a great first issue marking the march of the Battlecats down the road towards their adventure. The characters’ voices are strong while the artistic endeavours continue to push the boundaries to new heights.”
Get Your Comic On – Dave Jones
“Without question Battlecats is one of my favourite series so far this year, Vol 3 certainly looks to carry that on. I genuinely didn’t want it to end.”
FanBase Press – Michele Brittany
“Mark London, who is the creator and writer of this series, is back, maintaining a cohesive tone for returning readers. London seasons the first issue with details from the prior volume and while new readers could start with this issue, I would suggest going back and reading the first two volumes in order to understand and appreciate the events unfolding in volume three and the motivations of each character”
But Why Tho Podcast? – Jason Flatt
“DreamWorks needs to turn Battlecats into their next hit Netflix animated series post haste. It’s an epic high fantasy with a deep and complicated world, magic, and relationships. Every volume deepens the mysteries, and the lore in Battlecates Volume 3 is no exception.”
The Convention Collective – Darren Shulman
“BATTLECATS displays an impressive amount of world-building, including its own history and religion. It’s clear there’s a lot more to explore in their world.”
