I was curious what Zenescope would do after ending their longest running titles and truly one of the longest running small press monthly titles as well. The answer it seems is, give Sela a daughter and go back to their roots. Which isn't bad. I'm kind of for it actually because I think shared universes in comics have become a pain. Everyone wants one, but even the big two are struggling to make people care about all aspects of the universe. I'm glad to see at least one publisher return to making stories that are self-contained rather than a part of a whole. We'll see how that story actually turns out though because Joe Brusha is writing it and while he's been better lately, he still has plenty of room for improvement.
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).
