ZENECOPE’S ALICE IN WONDERLAND #1 SELLS OUT

 

Zenescope Entertainment is reporting that the #1 issue of new comic book title Alice in Wonderland has sold out through Diamond Comic Distributors. Further, the #1 issue has sold through the 19,000 initial printing on the first day of its release.  At this time there are no plans to do a second printing of the book but Zenescope has made the comic book available for digital download immediately through the Comixology and Zenescope Apps and can be purchased there.

Zenescope’s Alice in Wonderland is a new mini-series featuring Alice Liddle as she journeys through the insanity-filled realm of Wonderland.  Zenescope first visited the mythology of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland back in 2007 with the breakout hit Return To Wonderland.  The indie comic book publisher has since released multiple mini-series that re-imagine Lewis Carroll’s classic story as a present day horror and fantasy tale. 

“To sell out of a large print run this quickly is stunning.” said Zenescope Editor-in-Chief Ralph Tedesco. “It’s a great feeling to have such a loyal and continually growing fan base that responds so well to our re-imagining of Wonderland.  The good news is that there’s more of it to come.”

“We’ve been planning to tell this story for a long time and it seems that our fans have been patiently waiting for it.  It’s awesome to see this kind of response”, says series writer Raven Gregory.

Zenescope’s Alice in Wonderland is being written by Raven Gregory and features interior artwork and coloring by Robert Gill and Jason Embury. This first issue features cover art by Artgerm, Ebas, and Nei Ruffino. The first issue has also been released digitally on the same day as the printed version and is available through the Zenescope and Comixology Apps.  

Zenescope Entertainment was founded by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco in 2005 and has quickly grown into one of the top comic book and graphic novel publishing companies in the world.  Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales and subsequent spinoff series such as Escape From Wonderland, Neverland and The Piper, which put a dark twist on classic fables, are some of the best-selling and longest running original independent comic books on shelves today.   Zenescope’s licensed titles include the on-going, critically acclaimed Charmed series, based off of the long-running popular television series, as well as Se7en and Final Destination, based off of New Line Cinema’s successful film franchises. 

ZENESCOPE ANNOUNCES “The Waking: Dreams End”

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans to release a follow up to their hit comic book series, The Waking, first published by the company in 2010.  The new series, entitled The Waking: Dreams End, is written by Raven Gregory (FLY, Return To Wonderland) with interior art by Novo Malgapo (Grimm Fairy Tales).

In 2010, The Waking redefined zombie mythology and stood out as a unique offering in a crowded genre.  The Waking: Dreams End picks up years after the original events took place.  Murder has become practically extinct in a world armed with the knowledge that those who are killed will return from the dead to take the lives of their killers.  But within this new world comes a new kind of killer and an original breed of horror will be born.

“Several months after the release of The Waking, I had a splinter of an idea that just grew and grew over the course of the past year. Says Writer Raven Gregory, I knew I needed to follow up the original story and set it in a brand new world.  In The Waking, we established all the rules but in Dreams End, we find someone who has found a way to break those rules. And now the stakes are raised to a higher level and it’s really going to mess with fan’s minds.”

The original series received much critical acclaim and was praised by the Philadelphia Daily News as well as many comic book news websites for its unique blend of horror, suspense and comedy and its original take on the zombie mythos.

The Waking: Dreams End #1 hits shelves in late April and is currently available for order through Diamond Previews.  Go to Zenescope’s website at www.zenescope.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information.
