ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK ON… GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #1

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #1, which marks the company’s return to the horror anthology format that put us on the map, has a message for readers and retailers!
“GRIMM FAIRY TALES and WONDERLAND, and of course our SE7EN prequel back in 2006 were all definitely spawned from horror. This brings those elements back into the forefront a little more than they have been. With Grimm Tales of Terror, we’re blending horror with some dark humor and delving into urban legends, classic horror stories from Poe, and even original stories. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

- Ralph Tedesco, writer and co-creator

 

“Fans of our original GFT issues, Tales from the Crypt, and Twilight Zone will feel right at home with Tales of Terror. It features retellings of classic and beloved stories, and also some new ones that will prove just as tantilizing. And then you have the deeply moody art of Antonio Bifulco that is sure to thrill and terrify. This is really a series no horror fan should miss.”

- Nicole Glade, editor

GFT vs. WONDERLAND #1 is available for pre-order at your local comic book retailer now!

ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK ON… GFT vs. Wonderland #1!

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s highly anticipated GFT vs. WONDERLAND #1 has a message for readers and retailers!

“For years, Zenescope readers have had the chance to follow Sela Mathers in Grimm Fairy Tales and beyond as she’s battled alongside and against the likes of Robyn Hood, Hesling, Red Riding Hood, and many, many more. The readers have followed Calie as she struggled to save her daughter, her sanity, and her life across two worlds in various Wonderland books. But the readers have never gotten to see Sela and Calie together. That’s what makes GFT vs. Wonderland special. You have two great characters at the peak of their powers crossing paths. Will they be friends? Will they be bitter enemies? And what on Earth or Wonderland could possibly threaten them both? It’s an event, and you should be there.”

- Troy Brownfield, writer

 

“When I read Troy’s script, I envision Sela and Calie two strong warriors that are determined, beautiful, and independent. It’s like having two Wonder Womans in one book!”

- Luca Claretti, artist

And now, here’s a first look at preview pages from series artist Luca Claretti!

ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK… on Realm War #1

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s climatic REALM WAR #1 has a message for readers and retailers!

“This is a series that fans can’t afford to miss. Not only is it the culmination of the Age of Darkness storyline, but the fate of all the characters in the Grimm Universe is at stake and no one is safe. There will be a lot of twists and turns before the end and not everyone is going to survive the series. It’s going to be an exciting and surprising ride.”

- Joe Brusha, writer and co-creator

 

“Realm War is a must read for fans who’ve been enjoying all of the Age of Darkness releases. Grimm 100 ends on such a great cliffhanger, you’ll definitely want to know where it goes from there and how the Age of Darkness story will end!”

- Ralph Tedesco, co-creator

And now, the first look at preview pages by artist Sami Kivela and colorist Maxflan Araujo!

ZENESCOPE CREATORS SPEAK… on Wonderland #25!

The cut-off for pre-order dates for July releases is quickly approaching, and the creative team behind Zenescope Entertainment’s WONDERLAND #25 has a message for readers and retailers!

“The past seven years have been a delicate, carefully orchestrated chess match between Wonderland’s major players.  Issue #25 is when they flip the table over and go for each other’s throats.  The game is over, and it’s time for the real war to begin.”

- Eric M. Esquivel, writer

 

“I’m better with pictures than with words, so I’d prefer to let the Queen of Spades speak for me:

Spades_Preorder1 ”

- Manuel Preitano, artist

“Fights, deaths, comebacks! Too much action on 22 regular pages of Wonderland? Well, imagine what we have in the double that! Yes, this will be WONDERLAND #25. Pre-order NOW!”

- Leonardo Paciarotti, colorist

And now, the first look at five preview pages by artist Manuel Preitano!

Neverland Trade Paperback

The sinister Pan has finally found his key to immortality. 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. Once a magical paradise, Pan reshaped Neverland into the ultimate nightmare for any child unlucky enough to end up there. 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!

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.

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
