Sean Chen and Nei Ruffino: Escape from Wonderland #3 Cover (2009) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 01 SEP 2012

From Zenescope: “The saga continues as Calie finds that the closer she gets to her goal the more dangerous her path becomes. Strange creatures of every sort try to prevent her from reaching her ultimate destination but Calie is determined to let nothing stand in her way of her reaching her daughter and leaving this nightmare once and for all.”

With writer Raven Gregory and artists Daniel Leister and Crank handling the interior of Zenescope’s 2009 Escape from Wonderland issue 3, penciller Sean Chen with the help of inker Nei Ruffino were roped in to provide this suitably dark cover art!

Eric Basaldua and Nei Ruffino: Salem’s Daughter #0 Cover (2009) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 07 JAN 2012

Zenescope, known for their usually provocative cover art featuring scantily clad women, unleashed Salem’s Daughter in 2009, written by Ralph Tedesco with interior artwork from Caio Menescal.

From their release notes: The Salem witch trials of 1692 resulted in the hangings of 19 women and men. Over the years many came to realize that the trials were perhaps done in haste with no hard evidence of witchcraft being used by any of the accused.

Two hundred years later, Anna Williams, is living a regular uneventful life in Essex County, Massachusetts. But there is more to Anna than meets the eye… much more.

Now Anna is beginning to discover her unique powers and knows her life will never be the same as she reluctantly decides to follow her true calling. And a hardened and bitter gunslinger named Braden Cole is the one man who can help her along the way.

The series kicked off numbered with zero issue, and this first in the series featured a fantastic wraparound cover featuring some very angry and fiery ladies courtesy of the art team of Eric Basaldua and Nei Ruffino.

Eric Basadula and Nei Ruffino: Neverland #2 Cover (2010) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 26 NOV 2011

Zenescope continued their emphasis on making comic books revolving around twisted takes on classic fairy tales with the release of Neverland in 2010. Joe Brusha was the man behind the typewriter and Jean Paul DeShong the man with the pencil for this particular re-imagining of Peter Pan’s world come issue 2.

From their release note: Dr. Harlow approaches Wendy whose claims of her nephews being kidnapped sound a lot like one of his patient’s own stories. Harlow and Wendy plead with Cross to help them but his fear of returning to the horrid place from where he escaped 20 years before might be too much for him to handle. Meanwhile Tinkerbell’s jealousy over Pan’s new interest is causing friction as Pan begins to search for a way to dispose of Tink.

In the classic Zenescope way, this issue was released with multiple available covers, this particular one by artists Eric Basadula and Nei Ruffino being tagged as the retailer’s incentive version. Note the particularly stunning colouring used on the faerie wings – absolutely magical!
