Zenescope Entertainment Announces its HIT LIST

 

zen_circlelogo

Zenescope Entertainment will be publishing a new original action-thriller comic book series entitled HIT LIST. Zenescope co-founder and Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco (Grimm Fairy Tales, Salem’s Daughter), will be penning the series which is a slight departure from the mostly supernatural and horror fare Tedesco has co-created with writing partner and Zenescope President, Joe Brusha.

Hit List is a series about an underground crew of professional killers funded by a wealthy entrepreneur. In the first series arc, the collection of assassins attempts to methodically take out members of a dangerous white supremacist gang that deals in human trafficking.

“The story follows an ensemble of very different characters who happen to be paid killers. What if there was someone rich and ballsy enough to put together such a crew because idealistically he wants to make the world safer? I thought it would be fun to explore what could happen and, more importantly, what could go wrong.” says Tedesco “The story is very fast-paced and the action is in-your-face violent. There’s very little downtime in this series which will be a blast for readers.”

HITLIST01A

Hit List #1 Cover A by Jamie Tyndall

Zenescope will also be making Hit List a point of interest during San Diego Comic Con next month with a fun “Hit List” campaign that will allow convention-goers a chance to win prizes at Zenescope Booth 2301 while participating in an interactive experience taking place on the convention floor throughout Comic Con weekend.

The first issue of Hit List is available for pre-order in the July 2013 edition of Diamond Previews and will be released both in print and digitally this September. The series will also offer special Retailer Incentive Exclusive covers for issues #1 through #5 illustrated by star pinup artist, Elias Chatzoudis. These limited edition exclusives will feature Zenescope’s popular “Grimm Fairy Tales” characters as assassins. For more information on these limited covers contact Zenescope’s sales department at DaveF@zenescope.com.

Zenescope Entertainment Announces Grimm Fairy Tales: NO TOMORROW

 

June FB Ad_NoTom

Zenescope Entertainment has announced its newest Grimm Fairy Tales spin off mini-series, entitled Grimm Fairy Tales: No Tomorrow. The five part mini-series is a supernatural horror/thriller that could be the scariest comic the company has published since its spine-tingling comic book prequel to the film SE7EN back in 2007.

Set in the not so far off future, the long fought battle between the forces of good and evil has finally come to an end, and now an ancient new horror has entered the Grimm Universe. Keres, the Goddess of the Death, has begun to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting Earth, and one family man will feel the effects more than any other. Now this man must attempt to uncover the truth behind Keres and how to stop her before all is lost. But will his obsession with destroying “death” also prove to be his downfall?

Drawn partially from the tragic loss of a close friend, writer Raven Gregory came up with the idea of a vengeful “Grimm Reaper” who needs to be stopped. “At its core, No Tomorrow is about a man who decides to fight the inevitable, regardless of the consequences,” says Gregory. “It’s horror in its purest form.”

“I’ve wanted to do a story about an angel of death for a long time then Raven suddenly pitched this  to Joe and I and we knew this was the right concept.” said Zenescpe Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco “Its tragic, scary and thrilling. It has a great hook and fantastic characters. I’m very excited to be part of this series.”

The first issue is available now for pre-order in Diamond’s May edition of PREVIEWS and hits stands in August. The issue also features four beautiful covers by Mike Krome, Harvey Tolibao, Stjepan Sejic, and Pasquale Qualano. For more information on No Tomorrow or any other Zenescope title, visit www.zenescope.com  or follow their updates on Facebook.com/Zenescope and Twitter @Zenescope.

Zenescope Announces Realm Knights!

June Web Ad_RK

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans to bring together a cast of its most popular Grimm Universe characters for the upcoming mini-series which will be entitled Realm Knights. The company best known for re-telling classic stories with a unique blend of horror, tongue-in-cheek humor and great action, is bringing out its heavy hitters for this brand new four issue mini-series that teams up its fan-favorite characters such as Robyn Hood, Van Helsing, Red Riding Hood and Sela Mathers. Together the group forms the Realm Knights, a powerful modern day team of heroes that is chosen to help eliminate daunting supernatural threats against our world.

 

“It’s a great mix of fantasy, action, horror and humor.” says writer Patrick Shand. “It’s a blast to take these characters out of their separate titles and allow them to come together against common threats while also trying to get along with one other. For Grimm Fairy Tales fans, the elements will be familiar but also feel fresh and different.”

 

The first issue of Realm Knights is available now for pre-order in Diamond’s June 2013 edition of PREVIEWS and will be released both in print and digitally in August. The #1 issue will feature covers by Anthony Spay, Marat Mychaels, Alfredo Reyes and will also include a unique “suiting up” connecting cover by Anthony Spay that will spread across all four issues of the first mini-series.

“UNLEASHED” WRITERS UNLEASHED!

Unleashed-01A

Greetings, Zenescope faithful!  As UNLEASHED gets rolling, the writers of the big horror event of 2013 have gotten together to talk about it.  In the near future, you’ll see Raven Gregory, Mark L. Miller, Troy Brownfield and Pat Shand interviewing AND being interviewed by each other.  You can read the pieces here on the Zenescope Blog, then hop over to the Z-Facebook page to post your own questions which the guys can drop by and answer.  Remember: the Grimm Universe isn’t just our universe; it’s YOUR universe.  You are the readers, and we want you to be as much as a part of this event as we are.

First up, Newsarama alum and writer of Zombies: The Cursed Troy Brownfield dusts off his interview hat to talk to Pat Shand, writer of Vampires, Demons, and Unleashed in general.

TROY BROWNFIELD: Pat, I think that everyone understands the basic premise of Unleashed at this point, but they might not know where the whole idea originated.  Could you give us some insight into how the ball got rolling, and were some of the new characters like Helsing and Samira came in?

PAT SHAND: The gist of it is that a mysterious being has opened a portal to a hell dimension known as the Shadowland, unleashing hordes of vampires, werewolves, zombies, demons, and other nasties onto Earth. So essentially we’ve got the Grimm Fairy Tales characters vs. classic monsters, which I think is just so much fun… but then you’ve got the added element of mystery. Who is the Being? What does he want? We’re building something very different from your normal summer blockbuster event, and I think fans of our books and new readers alike will be shocked.

Helsing has already had a great reaction. She’s the daughter of Abraham Van Helsing, the original, and she’s one of four timelost monster hunters who had been banished to the Shadowlands. When the monsters come out, so does she… so the Being has her to reckon with. Samira is the antithesis of Helsing – she’s the Being’s right hand man, and the Queen of all Vampires. Both of them are the stars of my tie-in series, VAMPIRES: THE ETERNAL.

TROY: You and Raven are arguably the architects of this particular event.  Can you talk about what it’s like working with Raven, and do the two of you have a particular style in which you collaborate?

PAT: Raven will call me up, rattle off a 2Pac quote, I’ll sing the next line, and then we’ll talk shit for a little while. Before you know it, we have a plot. We’re just natural collaborators and we feed off each other’s ideas. Also, we pretty instantly know if an idea isn’t work based on the other’s reaction. Plotting with Raven is so natural that half the time it feels like we’re just fucking around and talking about friendly bullshit, so it’s surprising that the plot for Unleashed came out so tight. I guess it’s not really a surprise, though, because the collaboration is just so natural.

TROY: I will now ask the most predictable of comics interview questions: Pat, how did you break into comics?

PAT: I was running a review site for IDW’s Angel comics. I loved what they were doing, so I made it a point to get in touch with all of the folks working on those books. Not because I was trying to break in then, but because I loved the work they were doing. I befriended a lot of the writers and editors and started pitching, but it wasn’t until the last Angel book they published that they gave me a shot and put one of my stories in. Dream come true. I used that as a stepping stone and started working with other companies. Zenescope really pushed me as a writer, so when they asked me to go exclusive, it was a no-brainer.

UNLEASHED_0_Page_17

TROY: Hypothetical Question: Joe and Ralph decide that you have to let someone else write the next Robyn Hood mini after Wanted, but you get to pick a different Grimm Universe character for your own new mini to run at the same time.  Which writer would you pick to write the Robyn Hood mini and why, and which other character would you put into your mini and why?

PAT: Man, this answer is going to make me seem like such a dick. But I just couldn’t. I love writing Robyn more than any other character. I could sooner give someone my arms than pass Robyn Hood off in the middle of the story I’m telling. Her voice is my voice, you know? She is a bigger part of me than any other character, and losing that would be to lose some of myself. As far as working on another character in a miniseries, I’ve been asking about doing a Red Riding Hood or Van Helsing title a lot this year. We’ll see which of those happen first.

TROY: Dude, seriously; what’s your problem with GFT/GFTM&L character Marcus Jenkins?

PAT: Who?
