Zenescope Rolls Out the “Red Carpet” for Retailers with Free Exclusive Incentives
Zenescope Entertainment is gearing up for perhaps its biggest month in the company’s history. The publishing and entertainment company is hitting two major landmarks with the release of its 100th issue of Grimm Fairy Tales and 25th issue of its ongoing Wonderland series. Both issues hit shelves on July 16th and are currently in Diamond’s MAY PREVIEWS catalog.
Aside from Grimm and Wonderland, the publisher is releasing other brand new titles in July: GFT Realm War #1 (of 12) is an epic, action-packed maxi-series that is a direct spinoff of Grimm 100; and Grimm Tales of Terror #1 is a fresh ongoing series that meshes horror with dark humor by reinventing popular urban legends and classic tales while also introducing brand new frightening stories.
In order to celebrate this huge July, Zenescope is offering some special incentive exclusives to urge retailers to stock their shelves with Zenescope in July. These include:
Retailers who order 25 copies of each of the 4 titles mentioned above (100 copies total) will receive 1 free copy of a limited edition REALM WAR #1 “Red Carpet” exclusive cover by artist ED BENES, which is limited to only 100 copies.
Retailers who order 50 copies of each of the 4 titles (200 copies total) will receive 1 free copy of the REALM WAR #1 “Red Carpet” exclusive by Ed Benes as well as 1 copy of the limited edition GFT TALES of TERROR #1 “Red Carpet” exclusive Cover by artist MICHAEL DOONEY, also limited to only 100 copies.
Retailers who order 75 copies of each of the 4 titles (300 copies total) will receive 1 free copy of the REALM WAR #1 by Ed Benes, 1 free copy of the GFT TALES of TERROR #1 by Michael Dooney, and 1 free copy of the limited edition GRIMM FAIRY TALES #100 “Red Carpet” exclusive cover by artist RICHARD ORTIZ, also limited to 100 copies.
And finally, retailers who order 100 copies of each of all 4 titles (400 copies total) will receive 2 free copies of all 3 limited edition “Red Carpet” exclusives listed above as well as 2 free copies of a limited edition WONDERLAND #25 cover by artist MIKE DEBALFO, also limited to 100.
As a bonus, retailers in this bracket will also receive 1 free copy of the very rare WONDERLAND #25 “Red Carpet Alice” variant, which is limited to just 25 copies.
“We want to give retailers who are reluctant to carry a lot of Zenescope more incentive to do so,” said Zenescope’s President, Joe Brusha. “We know there’s big competition for shelf space from other great publishers out there, but we also feel that our books are worthy, and those who stock up will find that our books sell. And since our limited edition exclusive covers are some of the highest quality and best-selling in the industry, we felt this was a good way to allow retailers to get behind us a little bit more than usual this month.”
Orders can be placed directly through Diamond. To redeem your exclusives, send a copy of your Diamond Order to Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-442-9094 ext. 227.
