Zenescope Announces Alice in Wonderland Sell-Outs and Reprint

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a second printing of Alice in Wonderland #1. The company’s newest Wonderland mini-series was released in January of 2012 and the initial printing sold through its 20,000 copy print run within the first few days of its release.

Further, the company has announced that Alice in Wonderland #2 has also sold out of its first printing within one day of its release after hitting shelves Wednesday, February 22nd.

Zenescope has decided to go to a second printing of issue #1 due to significant demand for additional copies from retailers and fans. Zenescope is hoping to have this second printing of issue #1 available for a March release. The company has not yet announced a reprint of issue #2.

“In five years of publishing various Wonderland mini-series, we’ve seen the demand for more Wonderland continue to increase.” said Zenescope EIC Ralph Tedesco. “Our loyal fan base has been at the heart of it all and we can’t express enough gratitude for their support.”

This news comes on the heels of CS Moore’s announcement for an Alice in Wonderland action figure. The figure was sculpted by industry star Clayburn Moore as Zenescope has teamed with CS Moore Studios to release a series of action figures based on Zenescope’s strong and sexy heroines from the series.

Alice in Wonderland #1 and #2 can currently be downloaded digitally using the Zenescope app for iphone and ipad and at Comxiology for ios or android users.

Without further ado, Alice #2 :

Stjepan Sejic gave us the cover to Alice #2, and what a cover it is. I’m just amazed by how bright the fungus seems to be. The gals look fantastic too, but that goes without say. It is a great cover. Now, onto the interiors…

That’s pages 4, 5, 9 and now, the completed the two page spread that we saw the pencils of last week…

Very nice!

Jason Embury did a great job on the coloring in this issue. Robert Gill’s layouts and pencils are very just as solid as ever. These two have teamed up well to bring the fans another quality issue of Alice. The previews will keep on coming, so make sure to continue to check the blog continuously.

Literally Breaking News: Costumed Crime Combatant Catastrophe

February 7, 2012

 

Horsham, PA

What was once a way for children to be entertained has become a coping mechanism for a geeky teen looking to be respected. Local reports have been coming in of a wirey, masked youth, roaming the streets in town and barking orders and would-be mild miscreants. He has been constantly reciting well-known laws to those that seem to be bending them. There has been an improvement in traffic patterns under his watch, and the sidewalks seem to be a little less gummy. Unfortunately for the misguided, masked male, real criminals do not appreciate being barked at. The masked man picked up the scent of cannabis coming from the rooftops above and sprung into action. He headed up to confront the potheads but he what he didn’t expect, was his upcoming descent.

It is unseasonably warm outside, which was the perfect excuse for us to go out and play some basketball. I am nearly the worst player on earth, but it was fun  to be outside.
