SO, here’s CINDERELLA #1.
Some backstory: For about a year, I was writing between 6 and 9 titles per month for Zenescope. I was exhausted, especially when I became editor as well. As of this July, I cut back to Robyn Hood and Grimm Fairy Tales, while also getting ahead on October’s Charmed: Season Ten. Because the demands of an ongoing series are far different than that of a mini, I was perfectly pleased to continue doing both of those.
I’d also decided that I wouldn’t be writing any more Age of Darkness titles. I wrote a large portion of the material leading to GFT #100, and since that story was spilling over into Joe Brusha’s REALM WAR series and the tie-ins that would follow, I thought I’d basically said what I had to say about this event.
And then Joe called me and asked me some questions about Hades, my favorite character that isn’t named Robyn or Marian. I love writing Hades, so I answered Joe’s questions, and then asked why. He said he was planning to do a series about Cinderella hunting down Hades during the apocalypse.
I instantly asked if I could write it.
Cinderella — “Cindy” — is the batshit crazy, sex crazed, bloodlusting Harley Quinn of the Grimm Universe. Hades is a troubled, fallen god constantly walking the line between trying to be good (for others) and doing bad (for himself). The series is a blast of action that will break your neck with its pace, but returning readers who dig Hades as much as I do might find something meatier here as well.
I’m having fun with this one, so I hope you give it a shot, especially if you’re already reading Realm War. I actually don’t quite know who is drawing it yet — it’s a three issue series, so I think the production schedule is a bit late to start and quicker moving than most of our minis. I’ll keep you updated.
