Bill Jemas and Zenescope Team Up for Wake the F#ck Up

Zenescope Entertainment, one of the top comic book and graphic novel publishing companies in the world, has announced plans to release Wake the F#ck Up, an all-new comic book that is scheduled for an October release date. Wake the F#ck Up is written by former Marvel Comics President Creator Bill Jemas.

In 2011, Go the F*ck to Sleep, hit #1 on Amazon’s best seller list – speaking to sleepy parents desperate to put their toddlers to bed. In 2012, Wake the F#ck Up, bangs the funny bones of parents dying to get their teens out of bed and out the door.

Wake the F#ck Up starts as a storybook parody of best-seller Go the Fuck to Sleep. In lyrical tones, parents encourage their kids to get out of bed and out the door, to put down their games and pick up their books. But after years of blank, sleepy stares and passive aggressive sloth, the parents explode into expletives and kick their 20-somethings out the door. Then, Wake the F#ck Up transforms into a comic book in which the next generation takes over, as we see the same story from their point of view.

“When the comics were in a deep hole, Bill helped restart the industry by focusing Marvel Comics on the teen audience. I’m personally a huge fan of the work he did at Marvel,” said Zenescope President Joe Brusha. “Wake the Fu#k up is like nothing I’ve seen in comics before, in a very good way. We expect it to be a ground breaking book and think it will be a big hit not only with comic book readers but with an even wider audience.”

Bill Jemas was the architect Ultimate Spider-Man and Origin of Wolverine, two of the bestselling graphic novels in history.

This story is beautifully-illustrated by Dzialowski and Cyril Saint-blancat, a talented team of up-and-coming French artists handpicked by Jemas. Printed with high-gloss covers on high quality stock, this prestige comic collectible is a great gift for parents of teens, for teens of parents, and for every comic fan.

Wake the F#ck Up hits shelves in October and is available for order in this month’s Diamond Previews.  Visit Zenescope’s blog at blog.zenescope.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information.

Check out the promo video to get a sense of the book’s vulgar, yet definitive voice:

About Zenescope Entertainment

Zenescope Entertainment was founded by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco in 2005 and has quickly grown into one of the top comic book and graphic novel publishing companies in the world.  Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales and subsequent spinoff series such as Escape From Wonderland, Neverland and The Piper, which put a dark twist on classic fables, are some of the best-selling and longest running original independent comic books on shelves today.  Zenescope’s licensed titles include the on-going, critically acclaimed Charmed series, based off of the long-running popular television series, as well as Se7en and Final Destination, based off of New Line Cinema’s successful film franchises.

Wonderland #1 is Zenescope’s Best-Selling Comic Ever

 

Zenescope Entertainment, the company known most for its take on horror and supernatural thrillers, has announced that the #1 issue of its new Wonderland ongoing series has become the best-selling comic in the company’s seven year history.

The original Wonderland trilogy (Return to Wonderland, Beyond Wonderland, Escape From Wonderland) had been Zenescope’s most popular series to date. Now the Wonderland ongoing series continues that tradition with record sales that have surpassed expectations. The ongoing series picks up years after protagonist Calie Liddle escaped the horrors of the realm of madness called Wonderland.  Calie’s been living in obscurity with her now teenage daughter, Violet, as they try to hide from their past.  But they know deep down that Wonderland never lets one go and Calie realizes that soon she will need to fight back again.

Wonderland #1 was our best-selling comic ever and it’s a testament to the creative teams behind the entire Wonderland series since it began in ’07.” said Zenescope’s Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco “Our fans have supported this series for over five years now and we’re so appreciative of their support.” 

This news comes just after Zenescope Entertainment announced that Lionsgate Studios picked up the rights to Zenescope’s Wonderland to produce for Television.  Brian Robbins (Smallville) will serve as an executive producer on the project while Zenescope’s Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco will co-executive produce. 

Not only is Wonderland selling at a rapid pace in stores but Wonderland #1 is also seeing significant success through digital download.  The issue is one of the company’s fastest-selling digital releases through digital distributor ComiXology and was one of Comixology’s top-selling digital comics for the month of July.

Meanwhile, Zenescope Entertainment continues to grow its Wonderland product line by recently releasing its first ever action figures with CS Moore Studios as well as a Wonderland board game through board game developer 5th Planet Games.  

Wonderland #1 is currently available digitally through ComiXology and can also be ordered directly on Zenescope’s website. Go to www.zenescope.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information.

Fly: The Fall Coming this October

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans to release a new chapter in the critically acclaimed FLY comic book series.  The sequel is entitled FLY “The Fall” and is scheduled for an October release date.   Written by creator Raven Gregory (The Waking, Wonderland), the series includes cover art for issue #1 by David Mack, Ale Garza and Darick Robertson.  Interior artwork will be handled by Robert Gill (Alice in Wonderland). Upon release in 2011, the original Fly mini-series was touted as one of the best comics of 2011 by Wizard World, Pop Culture Addict, Comic Buzz, Talking Comics and Geekadelpia.  The backstory behind the creation of the series was also showcased in a poignant USA Today article.

Fly: The Fall continues soon after the life-shattering events of the last volume.  Following the death if his ex-girlfriend, Eddie is now a broken man set on a path of self-destruction from which he may not return.  Meanwhile Francis sets his game-plan in motion to destroy the man who killed is father.  Set in a world where the super-heroes aren’t really heroes at all… How far would you go to Fly? 

“I can’t tell you how anxious I’ve been to return to this world,” shares writer Raven Gregory. “There are few books I write that I can pour myself into like this.  All the pain and personal struggles make this story the perfect outlet to express how addiction is an ongoing battle, even when one’s clean.”

“What I love about this story is how dark and grounded it is. Ultimately it’s a very character-driven drama which happens to include lots of great action and a badass vengeance plot.” says Zenescope’s EIC Ralph Tedesco “It’s such a personal story for Raven which parallels his own battle with addiction and I think that’s why so many people connect to the series and why it’s been so well received by both fans and critics.”

FLY: The Fall #1 hits shelves in October and is available for order in this month’s Diamond Previews.  Visit Zenescope’s blog at blog.zenescope.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information on Fly.

ZENESCOPE TO PUBLISH “SLEEPY HOLLOW”

Zenescope Entertainment, the company known for re-inventing classic tales as horror and thrillers, has announced plans to release a new Grimm Fairy Tales spinoff comic book series.  This time the story of Sleepy Hollow will receive the Zenescope remake and is scheduled for an October release date.  The mini-series is written by Dan Wickline (The Adventures of Sinbad, Call of Wonderland) with story by Zenescope’s Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesco and Raven Gregory.  Cover art for issue #1 is by Marat Mychaels and Matt Triano, and interior artwork for the series will be handled by Allan Otero (Salem’s Daughter: The Haunting, Grimm Fairy Tales).

Zenescope Entertainment’s Sleepy Hollow takes place on campus of the fictional Tarrytown University in upstate New York.  The story of the headless horseman has become something of myth and legend but it’s a legend that is about to become all too real when a college prank goes deadly wrong.  Those responsible will learn the truth behind the legend as the Headless Horseman returns to exact a disturbing revenge that none will ever forget. 

“I’m very excited about taking on this project,” states series writer Dan Wickline. “If you think about it, Sleepy Hollow is the starting point for a lot of the horror out there today. It was the first story to use the basic premise that we see in slasher films and the blueprint to many of the unstoppable anti-heroes we have today.  I call them anti-heroes because deep down inside most of us are rooting for the killer when we read or watch these kinds of stories.  With this series I want to do what Zenescope has become famous for doing, taking classic tales told to children and turning them up to eleven.  I get to crank up the fright and it should be a hell of a ride.”

Dan Wickline has left his mark on previous Zenescope titles, including the current Call of Wonderland mini-series, the Grimm Fairy Tales: Sinbad spinoff and many of the popular Tales from Wonderland comics.  His work has always been very well-received by Zenescope readers and this series should prove to be no exception.

Sleepy Hollow #1 hits shelves in October in time for Halloween and is available for order in this month’s Diamond Previews.  Go to Zenescope’s website at www.zenescope.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information.

OUR NEW WEB SERIES “COMIC COMPANY”

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a new documentary web-series entitled “Comic Company” which will give fans a behind-the-scenes look into the goings-on at its office based in the Philadelphia area.

The web-series will consist of short weekly segments documenting day-to-day happenings at the offices of the popular indie comic book publishing house including pitch meetings, job interviews and general interactions and relationships between employees.  It could normally be assumed there is not much excitement inside the walls of a comic book publisher. Zenescope’s work environment could very well be the exception to that rule, with some of the company’s own characters, such as Red Riding Hood, Bigfoot, Mad Hatter, Alice and Calie Liddle, being employed at the office. It’s no surprise that any day at this comic company could turn out to be an extremely interesting one.

“It’s been a pretty unique experience to open our doors to a film crew.” says Zenescope co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Ralph Tedesco “We have a pretty diverse and eccentric collection of personalities here.  Most of our employees were really excited about it with maybe the exception of Bigfoot and the Hatter.  They’re both pretty private in general but all in all they were okay with being involved and I think this will be a very cool glimpse into the inner workings of an entertainment company such as ours.”

The first segment of “Comic Company” will air Wednesday, April 18th at 2pm EST on Zenescope’s Youtube channel. It will be released on a weekly basis exclusively at this link: http://www.youtube.com/user/Zenescope

Lena Headey joins the Animated Series Kickstarter Project!

 

Zenescope Entertainment has announced that actress Lena Headey, star of the immensely popular HBO television series GAME OF THRONES, will be joining the Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Series to voice the lead character, Sela Mathers.  Lena’s extensive resume includes her role as Queen Gorgo in 300 and as Sarah Connor in TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES.   This announcement comes on the heels of another talented actress, Briana Evigan (Step Up 2, Sorority Girls, The Devil’s Carnival), having joined onto the project last week.

The GRIMM FAIRY TALES Animated Series will be based on Zenescope Entertainment’s popular comic book series of the same name.  What makes this situation unique is that Zenescope has teamed with Titmouse Animation Studio and Director Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, The  Venture Bros.) to bypass the traditional film studio system by seeking funding  for the  animated series through popular website Kickstarter.com (http://kck.st/wjSM8D ).  The project is live on Kickstarter now until May 1st, 2012 and has a pledge goal of $175,000.

“We set the goal of the animated series at 175K because we wanted to give our fans and those supporting the Kickstarter a high-quality product.” Explains Zenescope Marketing Manager Stephen Haberman “We’re partnering with Titmouse, one of the premiere animation studios in the world, to handle the animation.  We have Jon Schnepp directing and now with Lena and Briana joining the project, we’re able to take it to another level.”

“Crowd-funding can be a powerful tool.  We’ve seen some really exciting projects find funding through Kickstarter and it’s a game changer.”  Said Zenescope’s Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco “It gives us a chance to make this series the way our fans want to see it be made.  We’re about a third of the way there with funding and hopefully now with the all of the talent we’ve brought on board fans will see that this can be an amazing project to back.”
