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.
We couldn’t be happier to be a part of this worthy cause and we hope you are able to join us for this marathon on Saturday, November 2nd.

Zenescope’s OZ #1 Sells Out

OZ01A

Best-selling #1 issue in company’s history

Zenescope Entertainment has announced that the #1 issue of its brand new title, Grimm Fairy Tales presents OZ, has sold out of its initial 30,000 copy print run. The publisher has ordered a second printing of the debut issue for immediate release.

Zenescope’s re-imagining of the Oz mythology was one of the top-selling titles through Diamond in July and the best-selling Oz related book of the month. Making that feat impressive is the fact that publishing giant, Marvel Comics, also released the #1 issue of its new series, The Emerald City of Oz, in July as well.

The success of Zenescope’s OZ and the company’s other best-selling titles, such as Wonderland and Grimm Fairy Tales, solidifies the ever-growing entertainment company as a top mainstay in the comic book market.

“I’m very happy that so many retailers and fans have taken a chance on this book. I hope they’re enjoying reading it as much as I am writing it.” said Zenescope President and series writer, Joe Brusha. “We’ve been planning this series for such a long time and it’s great to have a successful launch after having put so much work into it. We’re looking forward to publishing more Oz series and continuing to expand the Grimm Universe.”

Oz #1 is currently available digitally through ComiXology and can also be ordered directly on Zenescope’s website. Visit www.zenescope.com and www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information on all of Zenescope’s titles.

About Zenescope Entertainment
