HORSHAM, PENNSYLVANIA — Comic book and graphic novel publisher Zenescope Entertainment is excited to announce that Grimm Fairy Tales, the company’s flagship series, returns this December.
Grimm Fairy Tales is the cornerstone of Zenescope’s Grimm Universe and its evolution shows just how much the company has grown over the past eleven years. The new Grimm Fairy Tales follows Sela’s daughter, Skye Mathers, who has taken over her mother’s responsibilities as the Guardian of the Nexus. And series creators Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco are taking the epic series back to its roots.
“The new series will follow Skye as she attempts to guide those who may have untapped special abilities and are heading down the wrong path in life,” says Zenescope co-founder, Ralph Tedesco. “Each story will be self-contained and very much in line with the earlier issues of the original series. And we’re armed with a brand new batch of stories to explore. It’s going to be a very fun series for both new readers and GFT veterans alike.”
Grimm Fairy Tales #1 features 7 covers by some of the industry’s best talent, including David Finch, Eric Basaldua, Greg Horn, Talent Caldwell, and Josh Burns. The creative team includes veterans and newcomers alike, boasting names such as, Grimm Fairy Tales co-creator and writer Joe Brusha (Death Force & E.V.I.L. Heroes), jaw-dropping interior art by Ediano Silva, colors by Ivan Nunes (The Little Mermaid & DC’s Cyborg), and letters by Taylor Esposito of Ghost Glyph Studios (Robyn Hood: I Love NY & DC’s Batman Eternal).
Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco started out writing screenplays together about fifteen years ago but the two eventually came up with the idea that evolved into Zenescope Entertainment. The company was founded in 2005 and has become one of the most recognized independent comic book and graphic novel publishers in the world. Ralph and Joe’s edgy and non-traditional brand of story-telling sets them apart from the pack. Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales and subsequent spinoff series such as Oz, Wonderland, Neverland and Robyn Hood, which re-imagine classic fables, are some of the best-selling and longest-running original independent comic books on shelves today. Zenescope publishes and develops both original and licensed material and has worked with dozens of clients that include Discovery Channel, History Channel, CBS, Lionsgate TV, Mandalay Vision, New Line Cinema, Titmouse Studios and many others.
Zenescope Entertainment has brought an exciting new feel to comics and are proud to have such a devoted fan base coming along for the ride.
