Zenescope Previews: Quest #1, Through the Looking Glass #3, & Down The Rabbit Hole Trade

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Quest 1 of 5 (Age of Darkness)

For centuries, it was assumed that fairy tales and fables were fictional stories passed down from generation to generation. However, that is not entirely true. Beings from four different realms linked to Earth do in fact exist. These realms are known as Myst, Neverland, Wonderland, and Oz. Those born of these powerful realms are known as “Highborns” and those with both human and highborn blood are known as “Falsebloods.” Each has some form of supernatural ability that sets them far apart from moral men. While many of these beings are good, there are many others who have evil inside of them.

A rogue princess named Aisling teams up with Blake, a fallen Wonderland knight, and Bolder, a dwarf banished from his home, in order to protect the realm of Myst from the dark shadows of its past. Journey with this ragtag team of disgraced warriors as they fight for redemption in a world that has forgotten them. This is their story.

Johnny’s descent into madness begins! Death comes for Johnny Liddle! You’ve seen her true power in Zenescope’s No Tomorrow, so prepare for the world of Wonderland to get even more terrifying as Keres, the goddess of death, lures Johnny and Adina to her castle. Will they escape Death’s clutches, or is their fate already written in stone?

Wonderland: Down The Rabbit Hole Trade Paperback

What happens when a lost little girl grows up in a world full of madness to become a woman with a family of her own? What happens when that world wants much more from her than her sanity?

Struggling with a now shattered psyche, Alice Liddle must prevent the evil of Wonderland from slipping into this world and infecting those closest to her. But that is much easier said than done as Wonderland’s reach is more powerful than she could have ever imagined.

Forget everything you thought you knew about Zenescope’s twisted version of Wonderland and see just how deep the rabbit hole truly goes!

“This comic book is loaded with that familiar psychedelic insanity that Wonderland literature has been known for… My advice would be to go get yourself a copy.” –Comicmonsters.com

“An excellent comic that does exactly what it sets out to do. Highly Recommended.” –Unleashthefanboy.com

Zenescope’s 2013 Extra Life Team: Join, Donate or Watch!

Zenescope Entertainment is doing Extra Life again this year!
Last year was our first year taking part in Extra Life as a company, and we made a great debut!Thanks to our team members, and supporters, out of 2465 teams, we were ranked #168! And we were able to raise $1874! That is a good amount of money and it is going help the kids, which is the most important thing.
This year’s Extra Life will take place Saturday, November 2nd and  the team goal is to raise over $2000, and I think we have a good chance at meeting that goal.
Donate, or join the team!
Our team captain…is me. I will be gaming across multiple systems over the course of the 25 hours, and be giving away a handful of prizes to supporters, team members, and even fans who are active during the event.
You can find me on:
PSN: GoateeSox
Xbox: Goatee
How can you be an active fan during Extra Life?
Well, it’s simple really. You simply watch us game!
We will be live-streaming the entire marathon here: http://www.twitch.tv/thegeekyhusband
The most exiting part about our involvement this year, is that we found a unique, Zenescope way to support the cause, and that is with offering an exclusive. Here is the Extra Life exclusive, on Grimm Fairy Tales #91 Cover D by Talent Caldwell.
GFT91_coverD
Sela as a gamer girl…couldn’t be more fitting. This cover will only be available at our booth #704 at ComiKaze, as well as on our web store on November 2nd. A portion of all the proceeds from the sale of this cover will be donated to Extra Life, and that money is given to the Children’s Miracle Network.
