Zenescope Announces Alice in Wonderland Sell-Outs and Reprint

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a second printing of Alice in Wonderland #1. The company’s newest Wonderland mini-series was released in January of 2012 and the initial printing sold through its 20,000 copy print run within the first few days of its release.

Further, the company has announced that Alice in Wonderland #2 has also sold out of its first printing within one day of its release after hitting shelves Wednesday, February 22nd.

Zenescope has decided to go to a second printing of issue #1 due to significant demand for additional copies from retailers and fans. Zenescope is hoping to have this second printing of issue #1 available for a March release. The company has not yet announced a reprint of issue #2.

“In five years of publishing various Wonderland mini-series, we’ve seen the demand for more Wonderland continue to increase.” said Zenescope EIC Ralph Tedesco. “Our loyal fan base has been at the heart of it all and we can’t express enough gratitude for their support.”

This news comes on the heels of CS Moore’s announcement for an Alice in Wonderland action figure. The figure was sculpted by industry star Clayburn Moore as Zenescope has teamed with CS Moore Studios to release a series of action figures based on Zenescope’s strong and sexy heroines from the series.

Alice in Wonderland #1 and #2 can currently be downloaded digitally using the Zenescope app for iphone and ipad and at Comxiology for ios or android users.

About Alice in Wonderland:

Decades ago, a girl named Alice was sacrificed into the insanity-filled realm of Wonderland but her terrifying and awe-inspiring experiences there have been shrouded in mystery. Now, follow Alice into the rabbit hole and see for yourself the horror that awaits her.

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.

This Week in Releases: February 22

Happy Belated Ash Wednesday!

Print Releases

You can find these books in your local comic book stores or on our web store (www.zenescope.com/comics). We also have our Myths and Legends #12 and Alice #2 Mega Con exclusives now available!

The Mega Con exclusive cover of Alice #2 is fantastic!

 

  • Alice in Wonderland #2
  • Jurassic Strike Force 5 #2

Digital

We really appreciate everyone who is picking up our comics digitally. I find it to be a great way to have your comic collection on the go. I love collecting each issue of the comics I love and it’s nice to have them at home in my long box, safely bagged and boarded. But still being able to read the story, without worrying about ruining the copy itself,  is a big reason why I read a lot of stuff digitally. If you haven’t yet, make sure to download the Zenescope App on your iOS devices. If you can’t find Alice #2  in stores, it is very easy to pick her up on the digital storefront.

ComiXology

Available this week:

  • Alice #2 (Same date as print)
  • Jurassic Strike Force 5 #2 (Same date as print)
  • Grimm Myths and Legends #8
  • The Dream Eater Saga #9 (Grimm Fairy Tales #63)

The blog is just one of the many ways to stay in touch with you and for you to let us know what you think. You can also Like us on Facebook or Follow us on Twitter.

 

Literally Breaking News: Fowls Get Revenge for Thanksgiving

 

January 31, 2012

Horsham, PA

Superbowl Sunday has not only been the largest sporting event in America, but is well-named, as it is also one of the largest days of food consumption in the states. The second largest day of heavy consumption in fact. Of course, the only day that surpasses the super bowl in heavy food consumption is, in fact, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a time when many, many families choose to serve turkey as the main course. For a turkey, Thanksgiving is a terrible day for its population. Now, turkeys, even after their last breath, have found a way to strike back at us on football Sundays…

Want to see the tragic end to this fowl tale? Head to the web store and purchase a copy of 1000 Ways to Die: The Graphic Novel.  It will be available for purchase 2/8/2012.

ZENESCOPE ANNOUNCES “The Waking: Dreams End”

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans to release a follow up to their hit comic book series, The Waking, first published by the company in 2010.  The new series, entitled The Waking: Dreams End, is written by Raven Gregory (FLY, Return To Wonderland) with interior art by Novo Malgapo (Grimm Fairy Tales).

In 2010, The Waking redefined zombie mythology and stood out as a unique offering in a crowded genre.  The Waking: Dreams End picks up years after the original events took place.  Murder has become practically extinct in a world armed with the knowledge that those who are killed will return from the dead to take the lives of their killers.  But within this new world comes a new kind of killer and an original breed of horror will be born.

“Several months after the release of The Waking, I had a splinter of an idea that just grew and grew over the course of the past year. Says Writer Raven Gregory, I knew I needed to follow up the original story and set it in a brand new world.  In The Waking, we established all the rules but in Dreams End, we find someone who has found a way to break those rules. And now the stakes are raised to a higher level and it’s really going to mess with fan’s minds.”

The original series received much critical acclaim and was praised by the Philadelphia Daily News as well as many comic book news websites for its unique blend of horror, suspense and comedy and its original take on the zombie mythos.

The Waking: Dreams End #1 hits shelves in late April and is currently available for order through Diamond Previews.  Go to Zenescope’s website at www.zenescope.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information.

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.
