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!

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.”

Godstorm: Hercules Payne 1 of 5

For centuries, it was assumed that the Greek and Roman gods of legend were nothing more than myths. However, that is not entirely true. These powerful begins are, in fact, living amongst humanity. Some of them are content with blending in and living alongside humans, while others are plotting for their return to power. A war brews between Zeus—who awakens his demi-god children and shows them how to be heroes—and Venus, who uses her powers to manipulate both gods and men to join her side. This is the story of Hercules Payne… son of Zeus.
