Godstorm: Hercules Payne 1 of 5

For centuries, it was assumed that the Greek and Roman gods of legend were nothing more than myths. However, that is not entirely true. These powerful begins are, in fact, living amongst humanity. Some of them are content with blending in and living alongside humans, while others are plotting for their return to power. A war brews between Zeus—who awakens his demi-god children and shows them how to be heroes—and Venus, who uses her powers to manipulate both gods and men to join her side. This is the story of Hercules Payne… son of Zeus.

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 brings you the most chilling and twisted version of the Peter Pan mythos ever!

What Should Be The Next Zenescope Monthly Series?

Written by guest blogger David Goodman

With the conclusion of Grimm Fairy Tales: Myths & Legends with issue #25, that currently leaves Zenescope with two regular series (three if you include the bimonthly Grimm Universe) for their fans to look forward to each month. And while the various limited series that they publish are more than enough to keep even the most hardcore of Zenescope fans in a comic book coma month in and month out, there is something very rewarding about following a monthly series, especially if you have the chance to read it from issue #1.

And while Zenescope hasn’t announced any plans to launch a new monthly series anytime soon, I thought that with Unleashed putting a bright spotlight on the Grimm Universe, it might be fun to see what the candidates would be for a new regular series and what you the fans thought. After all, you are the ones that ultimately decide what Zenescope publishes when you vote with your hard earned money so your input counts more than you may think.

So what Grimm Universe characters might make for an outstanding monthly series? Let’s take a look.

Robyn Hood

RHWANTED01_coverC

This one should be fairly obvious to anyone who is a fan of Zenescope. Robyn Hood has easily been the companies biggest breakout hit since Wonderland and for good reason. In just one short 5 issue miniseries, Pat Shand created a multidimensional, fully realized character in Robyn Locksley, one that could be the subject of stories for years and years to come. Plus it helps that she embodies everything that Zenescope has come to represent in the comic book marketplace; kick ass women who can run with the big boys.

Realm Knights

GFTRK01_cover Digital

If ever there was a concept that was perfect for a regular monthly series, Realm Knights is it. I was blown away by the one-shot that came out a few months back and amazed how well a book like this worked in the Grimm Universe. Realm Knights takes the idea of the Avengers and boils it down to it’s essence, getting rid of all the extra crap and giving the reader the best of Zenescope in one book. Plus we would still get more Robyn Hood, and that’s never a bad thing.

Van Helsing

GFTVamp02_cover Digital

Even though she has only just made her first appearance in the pages of Unleashed, Van Helsing has already proven quite popular with the fans (and honestly how could she not the way Jamie Tyndall draws her on those covers). Much like Robyn Hood, she fits the Zenescope mold perfectly, and with most of her backstory still an open book, there are any number of directions a monthly series could go. And if ever someone should be a member of the Realm Knights, it’s Van Helsing.

The Jungle Book

JBLOTS01_coverA

Through two captivating miniseries, Mark L. Miller has reimagined The Jungle Book for a whole new generation and given it that special twist that makes it uniquely Zenescope. That’s no easy task, and yet when you finish Last of the Species, the second Jungle Book miniseries, you still get the feeling Miller has barely scratched the surface of the story he wants to tell. Some might say that a title like The Jungle Book works best in the miniseries format, but to me, it could be one huge, sprawling epic that could last for years.

Belinda

5

Given the fact of her recent resurrection in Unleashed and apparent attempts to make right the wrongs she has committed, Belinda would make for a comic unlike any on the stands. It would be incredibly interesting to follow the character as she tries to redeem herself in the eyes of Sela and follow a new, dangerous path. Of course, we’ll have to wait until the end of Unleashed to see how things turn out for her, but I have my fingers crossed.

Oz

Oz01B

Like Robyn Hood, this one should jump right out at you. The long talked about fourth realm of power has finally been revealed in Oz #1 and you can’t tell me that the whole story can be wrapped up in six issues. I could imagine a book like Oz lasting at least 200 issues if not more; the idea is that deep and complex. I for one am going to have a really hard time waiting between miniseries so why don’t you do us all a favor and just make it a monthly, huh?

Neverland

Neverland_Hardcover_DuskJacket

Other than Hook appearing in the pages of Bad Girls and Realm Knights, not much has been heard from Neverland since the Dream Eater Saga and I think it’s time for that to change. Like Oz, Neverland is a rich concept that could sustain a monthly series for years. Hell, at this point I would even take a Hook monthly book; at least then we could see a peek every now and then of Neverland.

 

So what do you think? Any of those sound like something you would be willing to buy each and every month? Or maybe you have another idea? Well let us know. Sound off in the comments below and help Zenescope decide if launching a new monthly series is a good idea. They only way they’ll know is if you tell them.

Oz And Zenescope: The Perfect Match

*This article was written by a guest blogger 

Myst, Neverland, Wonderland and Oz.

Ever since Grimm Fairy Tales transformed from a anthology style book into the flagship title of the Grimm Universe, we have heard about these four realms. Four realms of power that are inexorably linked to Earth and have shaped it’s inhabitants for generations. Up until now readers have experienced the worlds of Myst, Wonderland and Neverland in various miniseries and regular series with characters meeting, living and dying right before our eyes. But Oz has always been behind a curtain, talked about and glimpsed sparingly since we all got our first look at the final realm in the conclusion of The Dream Eater Saga back in 2011.

This year, that all changes.

OZ01A

July will see the launch of Oz, a new series written by Zenescope President Joe Brusha that will fling open the doors and put the spotlight firmly on Dorothy, the Wicked Witch and, yes, flying monkeys. The Zenescope faithful will finally learn all about the fourth realm of power and how it fits in with the rest of the ever expanding Grimm Universe.

Oz01B

And if ever a concept was perfect for the type of stories Zenescope likes to tell, it’s Oz.

Oz has all the elements that make for a great Zenescope series. You have the beautiful yet tough as nails heroine in Dorothy, the tailor-made for Zenescope villain in the Wicked Witch and easily one of the best and most original supporting casts in literature in the Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman and the rest.

OZ01E

And did I mention the flying monkeys?

If you need further proof, just look what Zenescope did with Wonderland. If you ever read the original story by Lewis Carroll, then you know there was already a wealth of material and story ideas there to play with, but what Raven Gregory managed to do is something else entirely. He took the story of Alice and turned it into a generational saga of one family’s war against the realm of madness. Look at his Cheshire Cat or the Jabberwocky, do they seem like anything Lewis Carroll might have had in mind when he wrote Alice in Wonderland? No, instead they were transformed into some of the scariest and most entertaining characters in the Grimm Universe.

WONDER010_cover A

Now just imagine what Joe Brusha and the rest of the warped minds at Zenescope could do with something like Oz. The directions they could go in are practically endless. I’m getting dizzy just thinking about the variant cover possibilities alone. Imagine what Anthony Spay or Jamie Tyndall will come up with with that cast of characters, it boggles the mind.

So when we all finally get to see Oz this July, get ready to be amazed. If could be one of the best pairings in the history of comics: Zenescope and Oz, a match made in heaven.
