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!

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.”

- Joe Brusha, Zenescope co-founder and co-writer of GFT #100

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

And now, the first look at preview pages by artist Sami Kivela and colorist Maxflan Araujo!

Zenescoop Previews: Grimm Fairy Tales 2011 Holiday Edition

 

 

Well,  since the Holiday season is coming to a close, we don’t want to miss the opportunity to spotlight this year’s holiday edition. It is exciting to be able to bring a Zenescope twist to just about any tale, but The Christmas Carol was a fun one to revisit.

This was the cover B, done by Sjepan Sejic. Sjepan does a good amount of covers for Zenescope, and this one really captures the tale with a clever use of lighting. The moonlight background focuses on the dark possibilities and characters but the candlelit foreground offers a sense of hope. The whole tale is told in one image.

Now, let’s take a look at some of the interiors of the holiday edition. Here is page 16, done by Reno Maniquis, depicting the “past” that led to her current life.

Here is page 28 and 29,  done by Anthony Spay, depicting the dark ghouls that also haunt her that very night.

And finally, here is page 37, done by Jim Rodgers, depicting Elizabeth’s please for a chance to change her ways to Krampus.

And there you have it! Another glimpse into the recent work from us here at Zenescope. We hope you check out our holiday edition if you haven’t already. If you haven’t yet got yourself a copy of this specific issue, don’t forget that we sell all of our comic books on our website. This issue is available here.
