Zenescope Previews: Quest #1, Through the Looking Glass #3, & Down The Rabbit Hole Trade

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Quest 1 of 5 (Age of Darkness)

For centuries, it was assumed that fairy tales and fables were fictional stories passed down from generation to generation. However, that is not entirely true. Beings from four different realms linked to Earth do in fact exist. These realms are known as Myst, Neverland, Wonderland, and Oz. Those born of these powerful realms are known as “Highborns” and those with both human and highborn blood are known as “Falsebloods.” Each has some form of supernatural ability that sets them far apart from moral men. While many of these beings are good, there are many others who have evil inside of them.

A rogue princess named Aisling teams up with Blake, a fallen Wonderland knight, and Bolder, a dwarf banished from his home, in order to protect the realm of Myst from the dark shadows of its past. Journey with this ragtag team of disgraced warriors as they fight for redemption in a world that has forgotten them. This is their story.

Johnny’s descent into madness begins! Death comes for Johnny Liddle! You’ve seen her true power in Zenescope’s No Tomorrow, so prepare for the world of Wonderland to get even more terrifying as Keres, the goddess of death, lures Johnny and Adina to her castle.

Wonderland: Down The Rabbit Hole Trade Paperback

What happens when a lost little girl grows up in a world full of madness to become a woman with a family of her own? What happens when that world wants much more from her than her sanity?

Struggling with a now shattered psyche, Alice Liddle must prevent the evil of Wonderland from slipping into this world and infecting those closest to her. But that is much easier said than done as Wonderland’s reach is more powerful than she could have ever imagined.

Forget everything you thought you knew about Zenescope’s twisted version of Wonderland and see just how deep the rabbit hole truly goes!

“This comic book is loaded with that familiar psychedelic insanity that Wonderland literature has been known for… My advice would be to go get yourself a copy.” –Comicmonsters.com

“An excellent comic that does exactly what it sets out to do. Highly Recommended.” –Unleashthefanboy.com

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 OZ #1 Sells Out

OZ01A

Best-selling #1 issue in company’s history

Zenescope Entertainment has announced that the #1 issue of its brand new title, Grimm Fairy Tales presents OZ, has sold out of its initial 30,000 copy print run. The publisher has ordered a second printing of the debut issue for immediate release.

Zenescope’s re-imagining of the Oz mythology was one of the top-selling titles through Diamond in July and the best-selling Oz related book of the month. Making that feat impressive is the fact that publishing giant, Marvel Comics, also released the #1 issue of its new series, The Emerald City of Oz, in July as well.

The success of Zenescope’s OZ and the company’s other best-selling titles, such as Wonderland and Grimm Fairy Tales, solidifies the ever-growing entertainment company as a top mainstay in the comic book market.

“I’m very happy that so many retailers and fans have taken a chance on this book. I hope they’re enjoying reading it as much as I am writing it.” said Zenescope President and series writer, Joe Brusha. “We’ve been planning this series for such a long time and it’s great to have a successful launch after having put so much work into it. We’re looking forward to publishing more Oz series and continuing to expand the Grimm Universe.”

Oz #1 is currently available digitally through ComiXology and can also be ordered directly on Zenescope’s website. Visit www.zenescope.com and www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information on all of Zenescope’s titles.
