ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK ON… GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #1

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #1, which marks the company’s return to the horror anthology format that put us on the map, has a message for readers and retailers!
“GRIMM FAIRY TALES and WONDERLAND, and of course our SE7EN prequel back in 2006 were all definitely spawned from horror. This brings those elements back into the forefront a little more than they have been. With Grimm Tales of Terror, we’re blending horror with some dark humor and delving into urban legends, classic horror stories from Poe, and even original stories. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

– Ralph Tedesco, writer and co-creator

 

“Fans of our original GFT issues, Tales from the Crypt, and Twilight Zone will feel right at home with Tales of Terror. It features retellings of classic and beloved stories, and also some new ones that will prove just as tantilizing. And then you have the deeply moody art of Antonio Bifulco that is sure to thrill and terrify. This is really a series no horror fan should miss.”

– Nicole Glade, editor

GFT vs. WONDERLAND #1 is available for pre-order at your local comic book retailer now!

ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK ON… GFT vs. Wonderland #1!

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s highly anticipated GFT vs. WONDERLAND #1 has a message for readers and retailers!

“For years, Zenescope readers have had the chance to follow Sela Mathers in Grimm Fairy Tales and beyond as she’s battled alongside and against the likes of Robyn Hood, Hesling, Red Riding Hood, and many, many more. The readers have followed Calie as she struggled to save her daughter, her sanity, and her life across two worlds in various Wonderland books. But the readers have never gotten to see Sela and Calie together. That’s what makes GFT vs. Wonderland special. You have two great characters at the peak of their powers crossing paths. Will they be friends? Will they be bitter enemies? And what on Earth or Wonderland could possibly threaten them both? It’s an event, and you should be there.”

– Troy Brownfield, writer

 

“When I read Troy’s script, I envision Sela and Calie two strong warriors that are determined, beautiful, and independent. It’s like having two Wonder Womans in one book!”

– Luca Claretti, artist

Wonderland: Asylum Trade Paperback

Everyone knows the story of Alice’s journey down the rabbit hole… but it’s what happens next that is truly frightening. Wonderland has been targeting the Liddle family for years, turning Alice’s son Johnny into the villainous Mad Hatter, and sending Calie and her daughter Violet on the run. However, Wonderland has now claimed Violet… and the youngest member of the Liddle family is on her own in the realm of dreams that has become a playground for nightmares.

When the truth behind Wonderland’s obsession with the Liddles is revealed, Violet will have to make a choice: embrace the madness of Wonderland in order to save her family… or go out fighting.

JOE BRUSHA SPEAKS ON… Grimm Fairy Tales #100

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and Joe Brusha, Zenescope co-founder and writer of GRIMM FAIRY TALES #100, has a message for readers and retailers!

“It’s hard for me to believe we are getting ready to publish our 100th issue of Grimm Fairy Tales. It seems like not that long ago we publishing issue #1 and then trying to figure out how we were going to find enough fairy tales to make it to issue #25. It’s been a blast writing and planning the series and seeing how it has evolved over the last eight years. As excited as I am to be publishing issue #100, I’m even more excited for the direction the series is going to take in #101. It’s going to be a great jumping on point for new readers and I think current fans are going to love it even more. The best way to describe I can describe it is Harry Potter meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
