On March 9, Zenescope Entertainment, comiXology, and Amazon.com announced an expanded and renewed distribution agreement to sell Zenescope’s digital comics and collections on ccomiXology, bringing their entire comics platform to the digital comic scene.
Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco founded Zenoscope in 2005, publishing titles such as their Grimm’s Fairy Tales and their multiple spinoffs in their Grimm universe such as Wonderland, Robyn Hood, and Oz. They also produce other comics such as Van Helsing vs. Dracula, Zombies vs Cheerleaders, and Hollywood Zombie Apocalypse. Zenescope publishes and develops both original and licensed material. They have worked with dozens of clients that include Discovery Channel, CBS, Lionsgate TV, New Line Cinema, and Titmouse Studios, among others.
“At comiXology, we jump at the chance to bring a wide variety of comics to as many fans as possible around the world. We’re happy that Zenescope is helping in this endeavor by renewing with us and expanding to Kindle,” said comiXology’s Senior Director of Communication, Chip Mosher. “With all the quality fantasy, sci-fi, action/adventure titles in Zenescope’s library, we’re sure that Kindle readers everywhere will find something to love!”
ComiXology is a cloud-based digital comics platform that allows comic readers to buy, read, and find comics online. Their Guided View technology allows for the largest digital comic library featured on the web with nearly 100 publishers. They were a top ten grossing iPad app in 2011 & 2012, and the top grossing non-game iPad app in 2012 & 2013. The company is based in New York City, with operations in Seattle, Los Angeles and Paris.
Also, beginning March 9, Zenescope Entertainment’s entire digital catalog became available in the Kindle Store to read from their store in the comic section. The staff at Zenoscope Entertainment are very pleased with the expansion.
“We’re so excited to continue to bring fan favorite series like Robyn Hood, Van Helsing, and Grimm Fairy Tales to comiXology readers, and now to an even bigger audience on Kindle,” said Jennifer Bermel, Zenescope’s VP of Business Development & Licensing. “Working with comiXology has given us not only an amazing platform to showcase Zenescope titles but also the ability to be everywhere our fans are, domestically and worldwide. We’re thrilled for what this next step with comiXology and Kindle will mean for Zenescope.”
