Zenescoop Previews: Jungle Book #1

Zenescoop Previews returns with a look and the highly anticipated Grimm Fairy Tales presents The Jungle Book #1. The first issue of any series is exciting, but this is also the debut of writer Mark L. Miller to the Zenescope team.  We’re excited to have him on board working on this title. So, let’s see what we got…

This cover is done by the talented Ale Garza, and the full length spread will be available for $9.99, or can be bought by collecting covers A,B,C and D. Pictured above is cover B. It is the profile image on our Facebook page right now (3-14-2012) if you’d like to see it.

And now, on to the interiors…

This is a two page spread on pages 6 and 7.  I used to think I could draw pretty well, but animals were so difficult for me. Seeing these pages makes me certain that Carlos Granda is very talented. I mean, bravo (claps).

Here are pages 17 and 19 as well, which were also handled by the Carlos Granda. The forests look so lush and the animals so exotic. We’re very excited for our fans to get their hands on this book, and it will be out in stores on 3-21-2012. Look for it on our web store and our local comic book shops.

So what do you think? Let us know in the comments below. We always love to get feedback from our fans.

Zenescope’s Wild Plans for 2012: The Jungle Book

Ladies and Gentlemen, We give you The Jungle Book! Well, we’re not just giving it to you and it’s not currently available, but we are proud to announce it is on its way. You can order it through the Diamond Previews or your local comic book store.

Here is a little breakdown as to how the story will unfold…

The new five-issue miniseries will follow Mowglii, a young girl raised by wolves who finds herself in the middle of what the animals call The Great Animal Battle. Mowglii must learn her place in the jungle and fight for survival against many exotic beasts. But she is not the only human in this jungle island. Three other children have been raised by different animal tribes: Bomani grows up in the tiger tribe that is led by the conniving Shere Kahn, Akili learned the ways of the jungle from the mischievous Tavi mongoose tribe, and Dewan comes of age within the unpredictable Monkeys of Bandar Log, which is led by the insane King Bandar Louis. Mowglii and the rest of the human cubs play key roles in the ongoing Great Animal Battle of Kipling Isle as they approach adulthood.

We also checked in with the writer to have him share some of his thoughts.

“I’ve always thought an animal civil war was a fun idea full of potential,” says writer Mark L. Miller. “Once I started thinking of it in the context of Kipling’s famous stories, it all fell into place… Plus, I get to play around with all of these characters I grew up reading about and loving as a child. It’s a dream come true.”

“Grimm Fairy Tales Presents The Jungle Book #1” will hit shelves in March of 2012, and feature four connecting covers by artist Ale Garza (shown up top). It currently is available for order through Diamond Previews for $2.99 and in full color.

We’re very excited to finally come clean on this project as we have been teasing it for a while. So, excited?
