Warlord of Oz 1 of 6
A Memorable Fancy

Warlord of Oz takes place after the events of Oz Volume One.

Peace has been restored to Oz. The fallen Witch, Lynessa, and her sister, Zinna, are fading into memory like a bad dream, soon to be remembered only in tales meant to frighten children. But there is one witch that still draws breath in Oz and she has not forgotten the power of her masters or the evil that they left behind. Soon the people of Oz will face a foe more frightening than any enemy that has come before… The Warlord of Oz
has arrived!

Grimm Fairy Tales 100 and Realm War: Age of Darkness Announcement

Zenescope’s GRIMM FAIRY TALES #100 to herald an Age of Darkness in “Realm War.”

HORSHAM, PA May 2014 — As Zenescope Entertainment closes in on its landmark issue that’s been the heartbeat of the company for almost a decade, fans and retailers noticed the company began labeling many of its popular Grimm Fairy Tales (also known as GFT) titles with the “Age of Darkness” brand. Age of Darkness is a way to tell readers which titles connect, in one way or another, to the universe altering events of Grimm Fairy Tales #100 and the subsequent twelve-issue GFT Realm War “Age of Darkness” series that is set to release right after 100.


GFT 100 Cover A by Neal Adams/Colors by Ivan Nunes

Fans can enhance their experience by reading any or all of the Age of Darkness branded titles, yet there are four issues that are important to read in leading up to the anticipated GFT #100. Most of which are currently available for preorder in Diamond Previews May Catalog. The reading order of essential Age of Darkness issues is as follows:

  1. Grimm Fairy Tales 2014 Annual – May 14th release date
  2. Grimm Fairy Tales Realm Knights Age of Darkness one-shot – July 2nd release date
  3. Grimm Fairy Tales 2014 Giant Sized Edition – July 2nd release date
  4. Grimm Fairy Tales #99 – July 2nd release date
  5. Grimm Fairy Tales #100 – July 16th release date
  6. GFT Realm War “Age of Darkness” #1 – July 23rd release date

Grimm Fairy Tales #100 arrives in stores July 16th and sets the stage for the brand new twelve part Realm War series, which is a direct continuation of the events that occur during issue 100.


Realm War 1 Cover E by Anthony Spay/Colors by Ivan Nunes

“Simply put, Realm War is a twelve issue ‘what if’ extension of Grimm Fairy Tales #100,” says Zenescope Editor-in-Chief and series co-creator, Ralph Tedesco “It’s epic, action-packed, and extremely fun. Hardcore fans and readers who are enjoying the Age of Darkness story arc are going to love this. Yet it begins at a point where new readers can jump on very easily.”

Meanwhile, Zenescope will be forging along with Grimm Fairy Tales #101, set for an August release that will run concurrently to Realm War. But #101 will begin a brand new, separate story arc that Zenescope says will not be a reboot of the franchise, but will definitely be new-reader friendly.


GFT 101 Cover A by Artgerm

“The new GFT arc will be a great jumping on point for new readers looking to begin the series without any confusion. The events of Grimm Fairy Tales #101 will begin in a different reality than those occurring simultaneously in the Realm War series,” says Tedesco.”And readers can choose to pick up either or both series without feeling like they’ve missed something. But for those who choose to read both, the mystery of the separate story lines will definitely pay off at the end of Realm War.”

“We spent a lot of time on working this all out,” stated Zenescope President and story co-creator Joe Brusha. “The idea with Realm War is to give long-time fans the big payoff they deserve after following this series for nine years. And that’s important to us. Meanwhile with Grimm Fairy Tales #101, we’re able to simultaneously start something both fresh yet familiar that’s easy for new readers to jump into while still appeasing the seasoned fans. With these two series, readers are literally getting the best of both worlds.”

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.

Grimm Fairy Tales Volume 15 Trade Paperback

Fairy Tales and fables have been passed down for generations throughout the history of mankind, but never has there been a re-imagining quite like this!

Sela Mathers has been easing back into her old routine. With a new teaching position and potential new love interest, all Sela needs now is to give her daughter some space and time in the hopes of getting her back into her life.

While some things are looking up for Sela, she knows better than most that her true calling of protecting Earth from evil will always get in the way of her happy ending. And the new threats that are forming around her are about to become more than she’s prepared to handle…

This compilation of Grimm Fairy Tales collects issues 89 through 93 of Zenescope Entertainment’s smash-hit comic book series!
