Tales From Oz 1: Tin Man

The first of three Oz origin stories tells the tale of Dorothy’s axe-wielding companion, the Tin Man. Is he a hero or a villain? Is he a soldier of the witch or an ally of Dorothy? The Tin Man’s actions have been cloaked in a shroud of mystery… up until now. Journey into Oz’s past, when a simple woodsman was transformed into a monstrosity.

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.

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.
