Takes place between Wonderland #25 and #26.

After years of being terrorized by the evils of Wonderland, Calie Liddle has finally triumphed over the Realm of Dreams. However, in Wonderland, even the ultimate victory has a price. When she defeated the Queen of Spades, Calie became the White Queen of Wonderland… and now the realm that once existed to torment her family is in her care. With the White Rabbit and newly reformed Dark Cheshire by her side, Calie seeks to purify Wonderland.

But when Sela Mathers, the Guardian of the Nexus, finds out that the evils being purged from Wonderland are spilling over into Earth, the two most powerful women in the Grimm Universe will clash!

ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK ON… GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #1

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #1, which marks the company’s return to the horror anthology format that put us on the map, has a message for readers and retailers!
“GRIMM FAIRY TALES and WONDERLAND, and of course our SE7EN prequel back in 2006 were all definitely spawned from horror. This brings those elements back into the forefront a little more than they have been. With Grimm Tales of Terror, we’re blending horror with some dark humor and delving into urban legends, classic horror stories from Poe, and even original stories. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

- Ralph Tedesco, writer and co-creator

 

“Fans of our original GFT issues, Tales from the Crypt, and Twilight Zone will feel right at home with Tales of Terror. It features retellings of classic and beloved stories, and also some new ones that will prove just as tantilizing. And then you have the deeply moody art of Antonio Bifulco that is sure to thrill and terrify. This is really a series no horror fan should miss.”

- Nicole Glade, editor

GFT vs. WONDERLAND #1 is available for pre-order at your local comic book retailer now!

ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK ON… GFT vs. Wonderland #1!

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s highly anticipated GFT vs. WONDERLAND #1 has a message for readers and retailers!

“For years, Zenescope readers have had the chance to follow Sela Mathers in Grimm Fairy Tales and beyond as she’s battled alongside and against the likes of Robyn Hood, Hesling, Red Riding Hood, and many, many more. The readers have followed Calie as she struggled to save her daughter, her sanity, and her life across two worlds in various Wonderland books. But the readers have never gotten to see Sela and Calie together. That’s what makes GFT vs. Wonderland special. You have two great characters at the peak of their powers crossing paths. Will they be friends? Will they be bitter enemies? And what on Earth or Wonderland could possibly threaten them both? It’s an event, and you should be there.”

- Troy Brownfield, writer

 

“When I read Troy’s script, I envision Sela and Calie two strong warriors that are determined, beautiful, and independent. It’s like having two Wonder Womans in one book!”

- Luca Claretti, artist

JOE BRUSHA SPEAKS ON… Grimm Fairy Tales #100

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and Joe Brusha, Zenescope co-founder and writer of GRIMM FAIRY TALES #100, has a message for readers and retailers!

“It’s hard for me to believe we are getting ready to publish our 100th issue of Grimm Fairy Tales. It seems like not that long ago we publishing issue #1 and then trying to figure out how we were going to find enough fairy tales to make it to issue #25. It’s been a blast writing and planning the series and seeing how it has evolved over the last eight years. As excited as I am to be publishing issue #100, I’m even more excited for the direction the series is going to take in #101. It’s going to be a great jumping on point for new readers and I think current fans are going to love it even more. The best way to describe I can describe it is Harry Potter meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK… on Realm War #1

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s climatic REALM WAR #1 has a message for readers and retailers!

“This is a series that fans can’t afford to miss. Not only is it the culmination of the Age of Darkness storyline, but the fate of all the characters in the Grimm Universe is at stake and no one is safe. There will be a lot of twists and turns before the end and not everyone is going to survive the series. It’s going to be an exciting and surprising ride.”

- Joe Brusha, writer and co-creator

 

“Realm War is a must read for fans who’ve been enjoying all of the Age of Darkness releases. Grimm 100 ends on such a great cliffhanger, you’ll definitely want to know where it goes from there and how the Age of Darkness story will end!”

- Ralph Tedesco, co-creator

CREATORS SPEAK… on GFT #100!

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s GRIMM FAIRY TALES #100 has a message for readers and retailers!

“The fact that we’ve hit an issue #100 is such a great feeling and it proves that we have a dedicated and loyal fan base. We’re looking forward to really blowing readers away with both the artwork and story.”

- Ralph Tedesco, co-writer and co-creator

“If you are a current reader of Zenescope’s Grimm Universe books – Grimm Fairy Tales, OZ, Wonderland, Robyn Hood, etc. – then this book is absolutely a must read, it is going have a major impact on the Grimm Universe.  If you have never picked up an issue of Grimm Fairy Tales, give it a try!  I’m confident you will enjoy it.   From a personal perspective, after doing strictly covers for over two years, I’m extremely excited to be back on interiors for this issue, and I think that shows through in the final product. Grimm Fairy Tales #100 is loaded with non-stop action and colorful characters, really highlighting the epic nature of the Grimm universe, and I couldn’t be happier with how it has come out.  Ivan Nunes is doing amazing things with the colors. We’re celebrating the 100th issue of Grimm Fairy Tales in style, so preorder now and don’t miss out!”

Behind the Scenes with Pat Shand: ROBYN HOOD: LEGEND #1

PAGE BREAKDOWN

Featuring Robyn Hood: Legend #1

Hey guys. Pat Shand here. A lot of you have been asking for some behind the scenes looks at what we do at Zenescope, so I figured it’s about time to bring that to you. I work as staff writer and editor for the company, so I get to witness the crazy cool weirdness that is the creation of a comic book.

Since ROBYN HOOD: LEGEND #1 is coming out next month, I figured now would be a great time to give you a teaser for that series, while also showing what goes into the creation of a page.

First, we start with a story outline. What we at Zenescope usually do is write anywhere from a page to a page and a half detailing what happens in any given issue. That is one thing I’m not going to show here, though. Spoilers!

Next step is the script. Personally, I write in the full script method. I know some folks use the “Marvel method” that Stan Lee popularized – I was recently listening to an excellent podcast that Kieron Gillen conducted with Matt Fraction and David Aja, the creative team on Marvel’s Hawkeye. Those two are operating under a somewhat tweaked version of the Marvel method, where a writer will give a loose outline of a page that the artist then breaks down into panels. After that, the writer will add dialogue. For me, though, as a writer and as an editor, I prefer laying out the entire page for the artist.

 

Here’s my scripted page for ROBYN HOOD: LEGEND #1:

Page Five

Panel 1. Back in the cab. Robyn tosses the cabbie a fat stack of hundreds.

1 ROBYN:
Take the rest of the night off.

2 CABBIE:
I… This is…

Panel 2. Exterior shot. The cabbie stands outside of his cab, waving to Robyn as she walks AWAY from him, toward her apartment, the same one we saw in the GFT HOLIDAY EDITION 2013.

3 CABBIE:
Thank you, miss! THANK YOU!

4 CAP (ROBYN):
Long day. Ate too much. Helped that guy out. Saved some idiot from getting killed. Shot some lowlifes in the knees, which is always fun.

Panel 3. Robyn throws the briefcase on her couch like it means nothing to her.

6 CAP (ROBYN):
Got a payday in the process.

Panel 4. Robyn pulls on her shorts for bed. She is wearing a ratty old t-shirt.

7 CAP (ROBYN):

I’m doing good. Maybe even making a difference. All in a day’s work.

Panel 5. Robyn climbs into bed, looking disturbed.

8 CAP (ROBYN):
Maybe, someday, it will make me feel better about what happened. Make me feel… something.

9 CAP (ROBYN):
Someday…

Now, here’s the thing about this script. Larry Watts, the artist on Robyn Hood, and I have been collaborating together for years, so I know his style. My panel descriptions are loose, and I tell him as often as I can that he can do with them what he likes. He’s made changes before for pacing, focus, and style, and I always defer to him because I trust his visual storytelling.

 

Here’s Larry’s page.

1

Many artists start with a layout phase. Larry does, too, but since he works on pages in bunches, instead of having true layouts, he’ll submit a page of penciled work. He always has pages in various stages of completion, so when he’ll e-mail me work, I’ll see some pages completely inked for the first time, like the page above, while others will be partially inked or just penciled.

After Larry’s work is in and approved, we get the colorist on board. The new ROBYN HOOD series colorist debuted with us on this month’s AGE OF DARKNESS one-shot. His name is Slamet Mujiono, and once we saw his color work over Larry’s lines, we knew they were a match that we’d strive to keep together.

Here’s Slamet’s colors for the page:

2

Slamet’s color work here accentuates the realistic, subtle acting that Larry is doing with Robyn, while also adding a very specific tone with his use of blues. A great colorist will tell a story along with the writer and the artist, and that is very much what Slamet does on this book.

Finally, we’ve got the letters. Jim Campbell is our go-to letterer at Zenescope, and that’s because he always does a damn good job. We ask a lot of Jim, and he always delivers, making the scripts better, influencing the voices of the characters, and making sure that the reader’s eye is able to properly follow the flow of the story.

3

A lot of times, we’ll tweak the dialogue after seeing the final letters. It’s the first time that the story and the art are truly becoming one, and the words will always appear differently over the art than in the original script. Clunky wording becomes clearer, and new, better ways that writers just can’t see in the drafts they’ve polished over and over again can suddenly burst through the fog when seen in context of a page.

 

Thanks for reading! I’ll be back with some more insight into the various creative processes of Zenescope Entertainment.

 

ROBYN HOOD: LEGEND #1 is written by Pat Shand, drawn by Larry Watts, colored by Slamet Mujiono, and lettered by Jim Campbell. It hits shelves March 19th, 2014.

“Ah such lowly creatures, you have given me an award? I shall accept your measly praise. Oh I have not won, only nominated, that’s…oh” – The Being

“The faired haired lad is an excellent sidekick and I wish he the best-a-luck. WHAT DO YOU MEAN I HAVE BEEN NOMINATED TOO!! I AIN’T NO BLEEDIN’ SIDEKICK!!!” – Bolder

“I’m honored to be nominated and I wish all the other nominees the best of luck. I’m not really sure who Jurassic Strike Force 5 is but I’m sure they are good people.” – Sela Mathers

The winners will be accepting their awards over Facebook beginning on February 24th. Fans can see the nominees interact via Facebook on their new profiles.
