By feeding off of the souls of children he steals in the night, Pan remains forever young and possesses a power unmatched within the realm he rules… Neverland.

In fact, only one child has ever been able to escape from Pan’s world, and it cost him the life of his little brother as well as his right hand. Now an adult, Nathan Cross, the one they call “Hook,” may be the only person who can put a stop to Pan’s evil reign.

Zenescope Entertainment Announces its HIT LIST

 

zen_circlelogo

Zenescope Entertainment will be publishing a new original action-thriller comic book series entitled HIT LIST. Zenescope co-founder and Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco (Grimm Fairy Tales, Salem’s Daughter), will be penning the series which is a slight departure from the mostly supernatural and horror fare Tedesco has co-created with writing partner and Zenescope President, Joe Brusha.

Hit List is a series about an underground crew of professional killers funded by a wealthy entrepreneur. In the first series arc, the collection of assassins attempts to methodically take out members of a dangerous white supremacist gang that deals in human trafficking.

“The story follows an ensemble of very different characters who happen to be paid killers. What if there was someone rich and ballsy enough to put together such a crew because idealistically he wants to make the world safer? I thought it would be fun to explore what could happen and, more importantly, what could go wrong.” says Tedesco “The story is very fast-paced and the action is in-your-face violent. There’s very little downtime in this series which will be a blast for readers.”
