ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK… on Wonderland #25!

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s WONDERLAND #25 has a message for readers and retailers!

“The past seven years have been a delicate, carefully orchestrated chess match between Wonderland’s major players.  Issue #25 is when they flip the table over and go for each other’s throats.  The game is over, and it’s time for the real war to begin.”

- Eric M. Esquivel, writer

 

“I’m better with pictures than with words, so I’d prefer to let the Queen of Spades speak for me:

Spades_Preorder1 ”

- Manuel Preitano, artist

“Fights, deaths, comebacks! Too much action on 22 regular pages of Wonderland? Well, imagine what we have in the double that! Yes, this will be WONDERLAND #25. Pre-order NOW!”

- Leonardo Paciarotti, colorist

And now, the first look at five preview pages by artist Manuel Preitano!

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.

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.
