Comic book and graphic novel publisher, Zenescope Entertainment may be known primarily for its various reinventions of fairy tales and fables, but the company has churned out dozens of page-turning horror and sci-fi titles over the years starting as far back as 2006 when it released a terrifying prequel series to the hit film, Se7en.
Last year, veteran comic book and screenwriter, Hans Rodionoff (The Goldbergs, Lost Boys: The Thirst, Lovecraft), worked with Zenescope’s creative team of Ralph Tedesco, Joe Brusha, and Dave Franchini to develop and write Conspiracy. A five-issue science fiction thriller that dives head-on into various Illuminati conspiracy theories as seen through the eyes of a couple who finds themselves pulled down a rabbit hole filled with shocking twists and turns.
Rodionoff returns to pen volume two, entitled Conspiracy: Aliens, and this time he brought longtime friend and collaborator, Adam F Goldberg, along for the ride. Goldberg is of course known for creating the massive hit TV series The Goldbergs and ABC’s new hit series Schooled.
“Adam’s a total fanboy and had read a few of our titles before,” said Zenescope’s Ralph Tedesco. “He’s another Philly boy so immediately we just all hit it off when we first met a couple of years ago. But when the idea for volume two came up, Hans suggested we bring in Adam to co-write. They already had a great working relationship, so it just made sense as Adam’s first comic with us.”
Written by Hans Rodionoff & Adam F Goldberg with artwork by Allan Otero & Leonardo Paciarotti, Conspiracy Volume 2 will follow a similar structure to the first series as each of the five oversized issues will contain stand-alone stories while weaving in a connecting story. The series will delve into various alien conspiracy theories all starting with the infamous Area 51.
Each issue of Conspiracy: Aliens contains 26 pages of story and hits shelves on February 26th. Comic book retailers can utilize Diamond’s FOC program to increase orders for the upcoming series on or before February 3rd.
