Wonderland has been targeting the Liddle family for years, turning Alice’s son Johnny into the villainous Mad Hatter, and sending Calie and her daughter Violet on the run. However, Wonderland has now claimed Violet… and the youngest member of the Liddle family is on her own in the realm of dreams that has become a playground for nightmares.

When the truth behind Wonderland’s obsession with the Liddles is revealed, Violet will have to make a choice: embrace the madness of Wonderland in order to save her family… or go out fighting.

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.”

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

“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.

Grimm Fairy Tales 100 and Realm War: Age of Darkness Announcement

Zenescope’s GRIMM FAIRY TALES #100 to herald an Age of Darkness in “Realm War.”

HORSHAM, PA May 2014 — As Zenescope Entertainment closes in on its landmark issue that’s been the heartbeat of the company for almost a decade, fans and retailers noticed the company began labeling many of its popular Grimm Fairy Tales (also known as GFT) titles with the “Age of Darkness” brand. Age of Darkness is a way to tell readers which titles connect, in one way or another, to the universe altering events of Grimm Fairy Tales #100 and the subsequent twelve-issue GFT Realm War “Age of Darkness” series that is set to release right after 100.


GFT 100 Cover A by Neal Adams/Colors by Ivan Nunes

Fans can enhance their experience by reading any or all of the Age of Darkness branded titles, yet there are four issues that are important to read in leading up to the anticipated GFT #100. Most of which are currently available for preorder in Diamond Previews May Catalog. The reading order of essential Age of Darkness issues is as follows:

  1. Grimm Fairy Tales 2014 Annual – May 14th release date
  2. Grimm Fairy Tales Realm Knights Age of Darkness one-shot – July 2nd release date
  3. Grimm Fairy Tales 2014 Giant Sized Edition – July 2nd release date
  4. Grimm Fairy Tales #99 – July 2nd release date
  5. Grimm Fairy Tales #100 – July 16th release date
  6. GFT Realm War “Age of Darkness” #1 – July 23rd release date

Grimm Fairy Tales #100 arrives in stores July 16th and sets the stage for the brand new twelve part Realm War series, which is a direct continuation of the events that occur during issue 100.


Realm War 1 Cover E by Anthony Spay/Colors by Ivan Nunes

“Simply put, Realm War is a twelve issue ‘what if’ extension of Grimm Fairy Tales #100,” says Zenescope Editor-in-Chief and series co-creator, Ralph Tedesco “It’s epic, action-packed, and extremely fun. Hardcore fans and readers who are enjoying the Age of Darkness story arc are going to love this. Yet it begins at a point where new readers can jump on very easily.”

Meanwhile, Zenescope will be forging along with Grimm Fairy Tales #101, set for an August release that will run concurrently to Realm War. But #101 will begin a brand new, separate story arc that Zenescope says will not be a reboot of the franchise, but will definitely be new-reader friendly.


GFT 101 Cover A by Artgerm

“The new GFT arc will be a great jumping on point for new readers looking to begin the series without any confusion. The events of Grimm Fairy Tales #101 will begin in a different reality than those occurring simultaneously in the Realm War series,” says Tedesco.”And readers can choose to pick up either or both series without feeling like they’ve missed something. But for those who choose to read both, the mystery of the separate story lines will definitely pay off at the end of Realm War.”

“We spent a lot of time on working this all out,” stated Zenescope President and story co-creator Joe Brusha. “The idea with Realm War is to give long-time fans the big payoff they deserve after following this series for nine years. And that’s important to us. Meanwhile with Grimm Fairy Tales #101, we’re able to simultaneously start something both fresh yet familiar that’s easy for new readers to jump into while still appeasing the seasoned fans. With these two series, readers are literally getting the best of both worlds.”
