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. Known for their unique re-imaginings of classic tales, Ralph and Joe are unapologetic about their work. Their edgy and non-traditional brand of story-telling sets them apart from the pack.
Next year will be marked by the release of Grimm Fairy Tales #75, which was the inaugural title published by Zenescope Entertainment. It is one of the longest running independent comic book series on the market today. But the company has not rested on its laurels, having launched a wide range of other successful titles, including: Wonderland (Tales from, Return, Beyond, Escape, House of Liddle) Myths and Legends, Neverland, Inferno, Salem’s Daughter, Sinbad, The Piper and a number of other titles. Joe and Ralph also added the very talented Raven Gregory to the writing team. His creative mind has been used most notably on the Wonderland and Grimm Fairy Tales series while also adding some excellent creative works of his own to the Zenescope catalog. Those stories includeThe Waking, Fly and The Theater.
In 2011, Zenescope Entertainment announced news that their illustrated novel, Monster Hunter’s Survival Guide, will be made into a live action movie, being produced by Simon Kinberg and starring the one and only Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. They also released 17 trade paperbacks and successfully launched their first ever crossover story entitled The Dream Eater Saga. Zenescope is looking to expand the merchandise available for their more popular series, and launch more edgy series as well.
