When I started looking into the Zenescope Universe, I was happy to see someone trying, and finding success, with the concept.
Founded as an entertainment company in 2005 by Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco---screenwriter buddies---Zenescope focuses it's main "universe" on public domain characters. It started with Grimm Fairy Tales, and moved out into Wonderland, Neverland, Oz, and Robyn Hood spin offs. Their main offices are in the Philly metro area.
Their stories have been recognized for their originality and edginess, and Zenescope is considered a premier independent company.
Using public domain characters and doing something original and novel sounds easier than it is, and for this company to find a sustained success---for over a decade now---means they're doing something right.
