SDCC 2013: Zenescope Entertainment Announces Big Plans
Zenescope Entertainment will be once again appearing at booth #2301 just inside the C entrance of the San Diego Convention Center during San Diego Comic-Con which runs July 17th-21st. Zenescope plans to give away thousands of free comics to fans while showcasing their top talent and offering limited edition convention exclusives and products throughout Comic Con.
Zenescope’s giveaways include issue #1 of the company’s new hit series, Grimm Fairy Tales presents OZ (while supplies last), as well as a variety of different comics, on an almost hourly basis during artist and creator signings (check http://blog.zenescope.com for appearances and signing times).
Meanwhile, Zenescope will dedicate Saturday, July 20th to the U.S. Armed Forces by giving away free copies of its brand new Grimm Fairy Tales: Wounded Warriors comic book while also holding signings and a Silent Auction of original cover art by talent such as Jamal Igle, Anthony Spay, Mike DeBalfo, Sean Chen, Alfredo Reyes and Billy Tucci. All silent auction proceeds will go to the Wounded Warriors Project.
Another big draw at booth 2301 will be Zenescope’s interactive “Hit List” game where fans can sign up for free at the booth for a chance to win prizes. The game will run all 4 convention days and involves collecting pictures of other “Hit List” players on one’s smart phone; those who collect the most photos will be awarded Zenescope prize packs worth up to $75 in retail value. Stop by booth 2301 for more details and to participate.
Also on the docket for Zenescope, taking place Friday, July 19th from 12pm-1:00pm in Panel Room 4, Zenescope will debut new behind the scenes footage from its Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Pilot. Director/Producer Jon Schnepp will be joined by Producers and Grimm Fairy Tales creators, Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco as they screen never- before-seen exclusive content featuring some of the voice talent involved in the project such as Lena Headey, Chris Hardwick, Briana Evigan and Robert Forster.
Lastly, Zenescope will be providing the talent to go along with many of its jaw-dropping exclusive covers available at the convention.
