Bolder, a dwarf warrior banished from his home. The trio finds itself

Myst from the dark shadows of its past.
a very good writer who is really coming into his own now. He’s a great
choice for this series because he is able to blend fantasy and dark
humor together into his scripts so seamlessly now.” says Zenescope
Editor-in-Chief and co-creator of Grimm Fairy Tales, Ralph Tedesco. “Pat
describes the story as a middle ground between LORD OF THE RINGS and
SKULLKICKERS and I think that’s accurate. It’s fantastical, epic and
fun; pretty much what our fans expect from our Grimm Universe titles.”
Entertainment was founded by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco in 2005, and
has quickly grown into one of the top comic book and graphic novel
publishing companies in the world. Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales and
subsequent spinoff series such as Wonderland, Neverland and Robyn Hood,
which put a dark twist on 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.
