BUSINESS: Zenescope signs exclusive with Pat Shand
With the growing number of writers opting not to pursue exclusive contracts with publishers, it is interesting to note that Zenescope Entertainment has signed a deal with writer Pat Shand to write exclusively for the company.
Pat Shand has handled a number of recent titles, including the Grimm Fairy Tales 2011 Holiday Edition, and the Grimm Fairy Tales Angel One-Shot. Ralph Tedesco, editor in chief of Zenescope Entertainment, spoke about adding Pat to the writing team: “Pat’s going to be a great addition to the Zenescope writing team. His instincts as a writer continue to impress me as does his ability to take direction while adding his own unique voice to our characters. We’re excited to have him on board.”
