Horsham, PA – Zenescope Entertainment has successfully funded its newest Kickstarter campaign in less than 3 hours as the company unveiled a new line of “bishoujo-style” collectible figures based on its most popular female lead characters from Zenescope’s ever-growing stable of comic book titles.
The first statue Zenescope is introducing is Sela Mathers, the main protagonist from the company’s ultra-popular Grimm Fairy Tales comic book series. Sela, known as “Guardian of the Nexus,” works to protect Earth from evil attempting to invade our world from other realms. The statue will stand at nearly nine inches tall and portrays Sela with her trusty sword and holding her enchanted, yet powerful, book of fairy tales.
Aside from the original version, Zenescope is also offering 250 limited edition special “black & white” versions of the statue through Kickstarter pledges. The sculpt is based on design illustrations by one of Zenescope’s top artists, Jason Cardy.
The campaign has different pledge tiers for both retailers and consumers who can choose to reserve their statue as well as other highly sought after Zenescope merchandise. Each statue reserved via Kickstarter also comes with a Grimm Fairy Tales limited edition exclusive issue with cover art by designer, Jason Cardy. The campaign will run until Tuesday, June 5th at 4:00pm.
If you have any questions, you can direct message Zenescope through the campaign page. To pledge and stay up to date with the Sela statue Kickstarter, follow the link below:
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. Ralph and Joe’s edgy and non-traditional brand of story-telling sets them apart from the pack. Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales and subsequent spinoff series such as Oz, Wonderland, Neverland and Robyn Hood, which re-imagine classic fables, are some of the best-selling and longest-running original independent comic books on shelves today. Zenescope publishes and develops both original and licensed material and has worked with dozens of clients that include Discovery Channel, History Channel, CBS, Lionsgate TV, Mandalay Vision, New Line Cinema, Titmouse Studios and many others.
Zenescope Entertainment has brought an exciting new feel to comics and are proud to have such a devoted fan base coming along for the ride.
