Amazon Gets into the Comic Book Exclusive Marketplace with Zenescope Art Book

Amazon, the #1 online retailer, is offering an exclusive Zenescope Art book to its customers, which is available for pre-order. The art book, entitled The Art of Zenescope Limited Edition Vol. 1 will be released in September and will feature a plethora of the most sought after, limited edition, convention exclusives. The hardcover collection will also come with a limited edition print.

Zenescope Entertainment is well known in the comic book industry for their popular, and valuable convention exclusives that feature pin-up style artwork from some of the finest cover artists in the industry, including J. Scott Campbell, Eric “Ebas” Basaldua, Greg Horn, Ale Garza, Jamie Tyndall, Anthony Spay, Franchesco and Nei Ruffino to name a few. These exclusives have a strong resale value on the secondary marketplace, and are very limited print runs, usually no higher than 500 copies.

The art book will have a print run of 2500 copies. There will only be 1750 of this art book available through Amazon, as the other 750 of the print run will feature a different cover, and be made available through the direct market through distribution through Diamond.

Zenescope Announces Their 2013 Convention Schedule and Plans

Zenescope Entertainment has released its convention schedule for 2013 which covers a total of 25 different conventions and cities, including two visits abroad in both Canada and the United Kingdom. It’s the most comprehensive convention schedule for the company to date.  Zenescope’s writers, creators and artists such as Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesco, Raven Gregory, Anthony Spay, Eric Basaldua, Pat Shand and many others are expected to be present throughout many of the company’s convention stops.

Over the past several years, Zenescope has maintained original and sought after convention exclusive covers. And this year the company has raised the bar as it puts the lovely Zenescope ladies to work with its “Work Force” theme for 2013. Eric Basaldua, Jamie Tyndall, Anthony Spay, Elias Chatzoudis, Franchesco and other top industry talent will take turns portraying Zenescope’s iconic and strong-willed female characters in a variety of blue and white collar work environments in the pinup style that has elevated Zenescope’s limited edition exclusives to be must-have collectibles.

Further, Zenescope has announced its new line of “Black Diamond” exclusive variants. These rare covers are intended to reward the hardcore collectors and fans who end up collecting all of them.

The first Black Diamond cover made its debut in January at Amazing Arizona Comic Con and future Black Diamonds will debut at various, random conventions throughout 2013. However, a specific release schedule and certain details about the covers are still being kept under wraps. Those who miss their opportunity to purchase these covers at the conventions can also look for them on Zenescope’s official web store.
