Enter the Age of Darkness

AOD_Quest_CR_GFTDQ_Facebook_ad

November, 2013 — Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a new event that will become part of the long running hit comic book series, Grimm Fairy Tales. The event is called Age of Darkness and will involve most of Zenescope’s Grimm Universe spinoff series as well as its flagship title, Grimm Fairy Tales as it approaches its landmark 100th issue, due out July 2014.

“Everything we’ve ever done in the Grimm Fairy Tales has led up to this event and the Grimm Universe will be forever changed by this,” states Zenescope President, Joe Brusha. “We’re thrilled that this series has lasted so long and we’re even more excited to see it evolve into something bigger now with the Age of Darkness event.”

Age of Darkness will first hit the Grimm Universe starting in two spinoff titles: Quest and Code Red. But 2014 will get more intense as the Age of Darkness descends upon multiple Grimm Fairy Tales series including Robyn Hood, Neverland, Inferno and Wonderland: Clash of Queens.

“We’re definitely going to shock some fans as we lead up to #100,” says Editor-in-Chief Ralph Tedesco. “But Age of Darkness is not being done simply for shock value, we want this ride that our fans have taken with us for the past eight years to really pay off.”

Upcoming Age of Darkenss titles are currently available for pre-order in Diamond Previews, which is out now. Check back on the Zenescope blog, http://blog.zenescope.com/ and follow Zenescope on Facebook at www.facebook.com/zenescope and on Twitter @Zenescope for updates.

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.
