Zenescope Announces Its Hit List
Zenescope Entertainment will be publishing a new original action-thriller comic book series entitled HIT LIST. Zenescope co-founder and Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco (Grimm Fairy Tales, Salem’s Daughter), will be penning the series which is a slight departure from the mostly supernatural and horror fare Tedesco has co-created with writing partner and Zenescope President, Joe Brusha.
Hit List is a series about an underground crew of professional killers funded by a wealthy entrepreneur. In the first series arc, the collection of assassins attempts to methodically take out members of a dangerous white supremacist gang that deals in human trafficking.
“The story follows an ensemble of very different characters who happen to be paid killers. What if there was someone rich and ballsy enough to put together such a crew because idealistically he wants to make the world safer? I thought it would be fun to explore what could happen and, more importantly, what could go wrong.” says Tedesco “The story is very fast-paced and the action is in-your-face violent. There’s very little downtime in this series which will be a blast for readers.”
Zenescope will also be making Hit List a point of interest during San Diego Comic Con next month with a fun “Hit List” campaign that will allow convention-goers a chance to win prizes at Zenescope Booth 2301 while participating in an interactive experience taking place on the convention floor throughout Comic Con weekend.
The first issue of Hit List is available for pre-order in the July 2013 edition of Diamond Previews and will be released both in print and digitally this September. The series will also offer special Retailer Incentive Exclusive covers for issues #1 through #5 illustrated by star pinup artist, Elias Chatzoudis. These limited edition exclusives will feature Zenescope’s popular “Grimm Fairy Tales” characters as assassins.
