Helsing Trade Paperback
The Darkness and the Light

Helsing is a brilliant inventor and expert vampire killer, two skills she picked up from her legendary father, Abraham Van Helsing. However, the normally unflappable Helsing has her world shaken up when Abraham’s journal is anonymously mailed to her home in New York. She discovers a clue that leads her on a cross-continental journey to find out what happened to him. But what Helsing doesn’t know is that her travels will bring her face to face with her father’s most dangerous nemesis.

And while humanity still has hope in the form of Sela Mathers and the Realm Knights, other unlikely heroes must join them before the Dark Queen becomes too powerful to stop.

    Any date(s)? or…… maybe it’s a suprise….?

      Every Wednesday, like clockwork…ish.

    I still don’t understand the timeline between Realm War, GFT vs Wonderland, and Wonderland #26, but I don’t feel like anything in the Wonderland series has been spoiled for me yet, so the “story of the White Queen of Wonderland” is looking pretty good so far.
    I don’t usually go for comics that are virtually dialogue- or explanation-free (Realm War #1 comes to mind), but I’m also digging the new Inferno arc, which is light on important dialogue and heavy on the kind of action that speaks for itself. Nice job so far, Zenescope!

      Well, GFT vs Wonderland takes place between Wonderland 25 and 26. Realm War is, and I quote Brusha, “Realm War: Age of Darkness’ will be almost like an
      alternate universe for 12 issues, and we’ll see how everything wraps up
      there,”

        So there’s an Earth Universe and an Earth-Ish Universe, huh? That makes some kind of sense, I guess, because from what the military said in Realm War #1, there are pieces of the four Realms Of Power on Earth. So there must be pieces of Earth in the four Realms (or maybe an entirely separate Earth reality for each Realm? Ooh, that would be awesome!–confusing, but awesome).
        Another question I just thought of: the Inferno (and I’m assuming, all the other purgatory dimensions) is on Earth, so why isn’t the Shadowlands on Earth? Is it too soon to do that again? Sorry, that was actually two and a half questions. :)

    Someone know where is the full story of Zagreus? when he killed Salicia and all this stuff?
    There are a lot of references in all God’s story, but i still don’t know the real story about that…

    Thanks o/

      Zenescope is playing fast & loose with actual Greek/Roman myth. I didn’t see any mention of the “Zagreus kills Salacia” story in any myth references, but Salacia is the Roman equivalent of Amhitrite (Neptune/Poseidon’s “wife”–so they got that much right). Zagreus is the son of Zeus and Persephone (which Hades shouldn’t be too happy about because Persephone is his wife), and was supposed to have been killed and reincarnated as Dionysus (an inaccuracy on Zenescope’s part), so in the Grimm Universe you could think of him as Dionysus II because in the first Goddess, Inc. Dionysus is shown to be a completely different character.
