David Finch: The Waking #1 Cover (2010) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 18 MAY 2013

Writer Raven Gregory with the help of artist Vic Drujiniu and Zenescope Entertainment unleashed the four part Zombie miniseries The Waking early 2010.

From their release note: In the big city, four police detectives investigating two routine murders discover that the victims of these crimes are coming back from the dead in search of those responsible for their murders. Now the detectives are in a race against time to find the source of the recent “wakings.” Meanwhile, a father with an incredible ability must choose between avenging his daughter’s death or losing her forever.

Zenescope Entertainment tries something new by stepping away from their usual Babe in Lingerie format of cover artwork and instead employ the fantastic David Finch to paint up this eerie and atmospheric bit of hauntingly beautiful cover art.

Comic Book Art: Poison Ivy by Eric Basaldua Comic Book Art | Comic Books 29 MAR 2012

Brother of comic-inker Rick Basaldua, American comic book artist Eric Basaldua (also known as Ebas) has been in the business for a while now, and is particularly well known for his very sexy depictions of female characters, which is probably why he remains such a go to guy for Zenescope when it comes to churning out their infamous scantily clad babe covers. He did however start his career at Top Cow studios, working directly for founder Marc Silvestri, and has since gone on to build up quite a bibliography of both interior and cover work. You can catch more of him at his deviant art page here.

This particularly stunning piece of artwork featuring very muted color palette stars one of Batman’s perennially least dressed member of the Rogues Gallery, Ms. Poison Ivy, in all her natural grace and beauty.

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.

Nice.

David Nakayama: Return to Wonderland: #2 Reprint Cover (2008) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 17 DEC 2011

2008 saw Zenescope revisit their twisted Alice in Wonderland scenario as part of their Grimm Fairy Tales line, with the aptly titled Return to Wonderland, scripted by Raven Gregory.

It’s a Wonderland unlike any has seen before and the journey into this twisted realm begins here.

The interior artwork assignment fell to Rich Bonk and Daniel Leister, with the original run of covers churned out by Al Rio and Tyler Kirkham. However, issue 2 proved so popular Zenescope needed a reprint, and to that end they turned to David Nakayama to produce this humorous and sizzling piece of cover art!
