Hellchild: The Unholy review by Joe Grodensky


Hellchild The Unholy: Angelica Blackstone Goes Out Fighting!Hellchild gets in her last licks in the series finale!

In the last issue of Hellchild The Unholy, Angelica Blackstone confronted Ouroboros. He was getting the best of her but did not kill her. Instead, he offers her a place alongside him as a “god.” Angelica refuses but does kill Jezebel which leads her to question herself and the others to question whose side she is really on. At the same time, a war between the underdwellers and the NYPD is about to erupt and blood will flow on both sides.

In the finale, Angelica is in the midst of riots, monsters, death and destruction as the uprising is in full effect. While she refused Ouroboros’s offer, she does make him believe she has decided to join him. In the middle of the fight, Jezebel reappears which confirms what Ouroboros told Angelica about her. Just when Ouroboros thinks Angelica is going to do his bidding, she does something else. Has Hellchild chosen sides or has she done what was needed for her to survive the battle?

Pat Shand did an amazing job with this final issue. It was a fitting end not only for the series but Angelica. We really see her come full circle. It certainly leaves an opening for Angelica to reappear in another series, whether it be her own or as a guest character in another title. Renzo Rodriguez did a great job on the artwork and gave readers something to remember. The colors of Walter Baiamonte added to that memory and made the series vibrant and bloody. Ario Murti and Hedwin Zaldivar gave the final issue a fiery cover to send the series off right.

Hellchild: The Unholy was a fun, well-written and well-told story that I will miss. Angelica was relatable in certain ways. She had inner demons, aside from the fact she was considered a demon, which she constantly battled with. She wanted to do good but felt it was not getting her anywhere with anyone so she decided to do her thing her way. It interconnected very well with the Van Helsing series which makes Zenescope such a great comic book company. They have a connected universe which flows smoothly between titles and characters. Hellchild: The Unholy is on sale now so check out your local comic book shop today!

Zenescope announces all-star teams for two new miniseries in 2015!

Zenescope Entertainment announces two new LAUNCH mini-series debuting in early 2015.  Fans will be treated to new stories featuring two of the most popular characters in the Grimm Universe.

Grimm Fairy Tales: The Little Mermaid will feature the creative team of writer Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, Grimm Tales of Terror), cover artist David Finch (Wonder Woman, Batman, Forever Evil) and colorist Ivan Nunes (Game of Thrones, Green Hornet, Grimm Fairy Tales).  Additional cover artists include Ed Benes, Jason Metcalf, Mirka Andolfo, and Mike Krome. This exciting new series will be released in February of 2015.

Having first appeared in Grimm Fairy Tales: Myths and Legends, Zenescope’s Little Mermaid, Erica, now embarks on a brand new journey.  Set a few months after her original story, Erica, now imprisoned,  has some painful and violent reminders of how cruel fate can be.
I am really looking forward to exploring Zenescope’s version of The Little Mermaid.  We are going to explore the history of the character from a new perspective and the impact of past rivalries on her present.  I’m also really looking forward to writing the character of the sea witch.  I’m having a lot of fun with her as I get into the character” – Writer of Grimm Fairy Tales: The Little Mermaid, Meredith Finch

Grimm Fairy Tales : The White Queen will shine with covers by Billy Tucci, Talent Caldwell, Sabine Rich, Sean Chen, and Giuseppe Cafaro.  The creative team includes writer Troy Brownfield (Batman, Grimm Fairy Tales: Myths and Legends), artist Luca Claretti (No Tomorrow, Neverland: Age of Darkness) and colorist Leonardo Paciarotti (George Perez’s Sirens, Wonderland, Fiction Squad)
It will be released in February 2015.

The Age of Darkness has arrived in Wonderland.  The White Queen, Calie Liddle (daughter of Alice), has begun her rule in Wonderland and hopes for peace.  Though she has allies, Calie’s hold is tenuous and when the Dark Queen comes demanding tribute, will Wonderland survive?

“The Age of Darkness has descended and the four mystical realms surrounding Earth have merged. Calie, Wonderland’s own White Queen, has become a pawn in the Dark Queen’s ultimate plans.”

– Grimm Fairy Tales “Age of Darkness”: The White Queen
“We have a few new titles that we’re really excited about like the Little Mermaid. [Also, there’s] a story about Witches set in the Grimm Universe. We have the conclusion to the Oz trilogy as well as the Grimm Fairy Tales [series] and Robyn Hood ongoing series. I’m pretty excited about all of them.” – Zenescope Entertainment Co-Creator and President, Joe Brusha, when asked about his favorite upcoming LAUNCH title.

The Zenescope LAUNCH Initiative was introduced in August 2014.  Heeding the call from fans and retailers, Zenescope added an easily identifiable logo to the covers of certain issues. The LAUNCH logo makes it easy for new fans to identify a good place to pick up the story of their choosing. For comic retailers, the logo can be an effective and easy marketing tool to help introduce existing fans to new stories and direct new fans to great jumping on points.
