UNLEASHED

Press Release

Zenescope Entertainment to Unleash epic Grimm Fairy Tales Event 

Jan, 2013 — Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans for a major Spring/Summer event entitled UNLEASHED.  The massive release will include six separate mini-series and a total of 24 issues (some being oversized issues) that tie directly into the Grimm Fairy Tales Universe. The epic comic book event will delve directly into the world of horror monsters while following those with the skills to hunt them.  Grimm Fairy Tales UNLEASHED is the main seven issue mini-series that begins when hundreds of formerly trapped vampires, werewolves, demons and zombies are all released on Earth by a very powerful entity known as “The Being.”  Now, four separate monster hunters (who fans will get to know in separate “Unleashed” mini-series), must join forces along with Grimm’s kick-ass heroine Sela Mathers in order to stop them.

The five other mini-series will lead directly into UNLEASHED and follow the terrifying stories of the monsters that exist within the Grimm Universe.  These series are The Eternal (Vampires), The Unseen (Demons), The Hunger (Werewolves) and The Cursed (Zombies).  The fifth series entitled “The Hunters: Shadowlands” will follow those who are chosen to hunt these wretched creatures, including Zenescope’s reimagined Van Helsing.

“UNLEASHED crosses several genres with a blend of horror, fantasy and action,” states Zenescope’s EIC, Ralph Tedesco. “We’ve wanted to bring classic but updated horror monsters into the Grimm Universe for a while and we came up with an all-encompassing event that would allow us to introduce a lot of great new characters in a captivating way.  A couple of examples include a reinvented female version of the classic Van Helsing character and Elijah, a freed slave from the 19th century who kicks zombie ass. Fans are in for something they never would have expected to see in Grimm and they’re going to absolutely love it!”

The entire Unleashed event will run from April 2013 through September 2013 with the first issues available for order in the February edition of Diamond Previews coming out this week.

Zenescope’s Gaming for a Cause

 

 

Zenescope fans are awesome.  This much is obvious. You guys have helped us fund the animated series pilot, came out in droves to our convention booths to meet us, and sang our praises all over social media. Thank you.

So Steve, your friendly digital voice on Zenescope here on the blog, and on social media, came up with a digital event worth looking into if you want to have another unique experience with your favorite Zenescope crew.

Zenescope is doing Extra Life. Extra Life is a 24 hour gaming marathon where gamers pledge to play video games for 24 hours straight and take donations in support of their marathon. 100% of the money raised goes to the Children’s Hospital Network to support the children’s hospitals in their area.  You can find the team page here:

http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=8662

So, we wanted the fans to know we would be playing and are open to having fans join the team. You are also welcome to donate, or just play along with us. We will be playing Saturday, October 20. Zenescope staff team members include: Stephen Haberman, Dave Franchini, and Matt Rogers so far, with more planning to join in on the fun.

If you decide to donate or join the team, you will be entered to win prizes, including Zenescope t-shirts, comics, and even MegaTouch will have some Grimm Fairy Tales Photohunt game codes to give away. We will also be putting together 3 prize packages for the 3 highest donors.  We hope that you are able to participate in the marathon, or at least watch as our team plays for the kids!
