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.

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

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.

“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.

“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.”

Grimm Fairy Tale Flashback: Myths & Legends #25

by Dave Goodman

Grimm Fairy Tale Flashback is where we take a look into the truly massive archive of Zenescope Entertainment, pick a back issue and tell you why you should seek it out and read it. Think of us as your own personal highlight reel showing you the best of Zenescope over the years.

 If you are a regular reader of Zenescope’s Grimm Universe (and what self-respecting comic book fan wouldn’t be?) then you have probably noticed a subtle shift in the storytelling in their books over the last year or so. What began as a handful of titles with just the most tenuous of ties has become a tightly knit, single epic storyline being told with Grimm Fairy Tales at the center and various miniseries and one-shots spinning out from there. It has resulted in a more cohesive universe that is a lot of fun to follow and a blast to read each month.

And if we were to look back, we would see that this new style had it’s beginnings in the pages of Grimm Fairy Tales: Myths & Legends, specifically the final issue, #25.

GFTML25_coverA

Launched in 2011 as a companion title to Grimm Fairy Tales, Myths & Legends promised to revisit some of the characters from the time when Zenescope’s flagship book was an anthology style comic, telling a different story with each couple of issues. Arcs centered on Red Riding Hood, The Beast, the Little Mermaid and so forth.

But in truth, we soon discovered that there was a plan in place to tie all these disparate characters into one massive storyline, The Summoning, which closed out Myths & Legends over the series final four issues.

And it did not disappoint for spectacle or drama. The Summoning was filled with action, character development and the world changing, widescreen type of consequences that are normally reserved for summer crossover events and the like. Issue #25 in particular was quite a game changer, introducing the powerful Helios to the Grimm Universe and revealing the fact that the US Government was aware of Highborns and Falsebloods and what they planned to do to “handle” the situation.

In many ways, the final issue of Myths & Legends paved the way for what came next, including Unleashed, Realm Knights, the Age of Darkness, the forthcoming Grimm Fairy Tales #100 and the ominously titles Realm War maxi-series launching in July. Myths & Legends #25 completely changed the tone of the Grimm Universe, showing readers that Zenescope was not afraid to shake things up and that they had no interest in maintaining the status quo.

If you haven’t read The Summoning yet, I highly recommend you do. The entire arc is available on Comixology as well as in the pages of the fifth Myths & Legends trade paperback.

Wonderland Through the Looking Glass Trade Paperback

Zenescope Entertainment’s epic, fantasy-horror series continues with a brand new mind-bending installment.

The Liddle family has never been normal. Even before Alice would meet her future husband, Lewis, her mind was haunted by secrets of her dark past. Alice tried to live a normal life and raise a family with two beautiful children, Calie and Johnny. But it was only a matter of time before Alice’s past caught up with her. Upon learning that the nightmarish realm of Wonderland has been targeting her family through her mind, Alice sacrificed herself, finally ending the nightmare… Or so she thought.

After her mother’s suicide and the murder of her father at her brother’s hands, Calie Liddle sacrificed her brother, Johnny, to the realm of Wonderland. Now, Johnny – alone and scared – is trapped in the hellish landscape. What will become of him and what will become of the Liddle bloodline?

B.A.R. Maid 2

Years before World War II, the Japanese continue to formulate their plan for world dominance, developing cutting edge weapons, including a new tank that will give them a distinct advantage in ground warfare. But Cassidy O’Hara and her band of guerrilla fighters have other plans for this ultimate weapon as they stage a daring raid on the tank factory.  But are they making the right call or walking straight into a trap?
