Official Press Release
Comic book and graphic novel publisher Zenescope Entertainment has announced the first half of its 2007 publishing schedule. Fans of Grimm Fairy Tales and Se7en have been wondering when the latest issues would hit store shelves and Zenescope Publisher Joe Brusha has the answers.
"While our first year of publishing was successful and exciting, we didn't account for some of the snags that can happen along the way. After a full year of putting out quality comics, we've worked out the kinks and can promise our fans we're now on a steady schedule.
"We know it's frustrating for both our fans and the retailers who carry our titles when books ship late," adds Brusha. "Getting our titles back on track was a major goal for us in 2007. We've been working closely with Diamond to make this happen."
The current release schedule for Grimm Fairy Tales is as follows:
GFT #10 – January 24th
GFT #11 – February 7th
GFT #12 – February 21st
GFT #13 – March 14th
