Born in the early 1800s, Liesel Van Helsing is the daughter of the famed vampire slayer Abraham Van Helsing. Liesel, as both a genius inventor and a skilled hunter, became known as the scourge of the Underworld when she created steam-powered devices to dispatch her prey.

Dedicated to not only taking out vampires, Helsing occasionally fights all kinds of evil alongside her friend Sela Mathers and the other Realm Knights sworn to protect Earth. However, a powerful evil from the past has been waiting in the shadows for his chance at a reckoning… and that chance has arrived. This is the story of Liesel Van Helsing… vampire hunter.

ZENESCOPE AND CBS BRING BACK CHARMED

Charmed.2.Horn

Zenescope Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products are bringing the fan-favorite series CHARMED back to comic book and graphic novel formats this Fall. Zenescope published the first 24 issues of the bestselling series from June 2010 through September 2012.

Constance M. Burge created the popular TV series, which starred Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty. Charmed aired from 1998 through 2006, and found a new life as original comics when Zenescope began publishing “Season 9” four years ago. Now, Zenescope will release a brand new “Season 10” in an on-going monthly comic book series with trade paperback collections released twice each year.
“I’m so glad to announce this news.” said Zenescope Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco.

“Charmed fans are an extremely rabid and loyal group. They write us all the time, asking about Season 10 since it’s been almost two years since the last issue was released. We’re happy to let them all know that it’s been worth the wait — we’re coming back with a brand new arc and a ton of surprises that we feel will absolutely satisfy hardcore Charmed fans, while also appealing to new readers.”

The first issue of Season 10 will debut at New York Comic Con the weekend of October 9, 2014. Original comic book series writer Paul Ruditis will edit the series and Zenescope writer Pat Shand (Angel, Robyn Hood) takes the helm penning the new arc. The art team will be announced next month.

Godstorm: Hercules Payne 1 of 5

For centuries, it was assumed that the Greek and Roman gods of legend were nothing more than myths. However, that is not entirely true. These powerful begins are, in fact, living amongst humanity. Some of them are content with blending in and living alongside humans, while others are plotting for their return to power. A war brews between Zeus—who awakens his demi-god children and shows them how to be heroes—and Venus, who uses her powers to manipulate both gods and men to join her side. This is the story of Hercules Payne… son of Zeus.
