Zenescope Goes on a Quest


If you thought that Zenescope was done with the whole Grimm Fairy Tales thing, then you clearly don't know the publisher. The stories are the linchpin of the Zenescope universe and there's tons to be mined in those characters. Zenescope Entertainment is taking some of those character on a journey in Quest, a new series written by Pat Shand and set for a November release.

“Pat’s 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.”

Quest follows a rogue princess named Aisling who teams up with well-known Grimm Fairy Tales characters, Blake, the fallen Wonderland knight, and Bolder, a dwarf warrior banished from his home. The trio finds itself searching for redemption as they’re tasked with protecting the realm of Myst from the dark shadows of its past.
