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

Zenescope Follows Alice and Calie Down the Rabbit Hole for new Trilogy

Feb, 2013 — Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a new Wonderland prequel mini-series entitled Wonderland: Down the Rabbit Hole. The new five issue series will be penned by Wonderland writer and co-creator Raven Gregory and Zenescope’s “Robyn Hood” scribe, Pat Shand.

This new series takes readers back to the original mini-series, RETURN TO WONDERLAND, which was first published in 2007.  Zenescope’s “Down the Rabbit Hole” will fill in the blanks surrounding Calie’s first journey into the realm of madness.  This time, readers will see things from other family members’ perspectives as Calie takes her first, life-altering, journey into Wonderland.

As was announced in July 2012, Zenescope’s original Wonderland trilogy was purchased by Lionsgate TV and is being produced by Smallville’s Brian Robbins to be adapted as a live-action television series.  This new mini-series will no doubt allow for additional story-lines and appease the die-hard Wonderland fans who can now delve deeper into the rich mythology that creators Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesco and Raven Gregory have been publishing for the past six years.

Wonderland: Down the Rabbit Hole will be available for preorder on the March edition of Diamond Previews or for preorder through Zenescope’s official web store: http://zenescope.pinnaclecart.com.

For more information, visit Zenescope’s website at www.zenescope.com or its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Zenescope.

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 Wonderland, Neverland and Robyn Hood, 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 publishes and develops both original and licensed material and has worked with dozens of clients that include Discovery Channel, History Channel, CBS, Lionsgate TV, New Line Cinema, Mandalay Vision, New Line Cinema, Titmouse Studios and many others.

 

OUR NEW WEB SERIES “COMIC COMPANY”

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a new documentary web-series entitled “Comic Company” which will give fans a behind-the-scenes look into the goings-on at its office based in the Philadelphia area.

The web-series will consist of short weekly segments documenting day-to-day happenings at the offices of the popular indie comic book publishing house including pitch meetings, job interviews and general interactions and relationships between employees.  It could normally be assumed there is not much excitement inside the walls of a comic book publisher. Zenescope’s work environment could very well be the exception to that rule, with some of the company’s own characters, such as Red Riding Hood, Bigfoot, Mad Hatter, Alice and Calie Liddle, being employed at the office. It’s no surprise that any day at this comic company could turn out to be an extremely interesting one.

“It’s been a pretty unique experience to open our doors to a film crew.” says Zenescope co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Ralph Tedesco “We have a pretty diverse and eccentric collection of personalities here.  Most of our employees were really excited about it with maybe the exception of Bigfoot and the Hatter.  They’re both pretty private in general but all in all they were okay with being involved and I think this will be a very cool glimpse into the inner workings of an entertainment company such as ours.”

The first segment of “Comic Company” will air Wednesday, April 18th at 2pm EST on Zenescope’s Youtube channel. It will be released on a weekly basis exclusively at this link: http://www.youtube.com/user/Zenescope
