If you're a fan of Zenescope Entertainment's comic series "Grimm Fairy Tales," you're going to love this. The company has partnered with Titmouse animation studio and director Jon Schnepp (the guy behind "Metalocalypse" and "The Venture Bros.") to launch a Kickstarter campaign thats end goal is an animated series based off the graphic novel, and yesterday they announced that "Game of Thrones's" Lena Headey is going to be voicing leading lady Sela Mathers.
Sela Mathers is a professor of literature who can affect peoples' lives by teaching them lessons in morality through fairy tales. But people often ignore her advice and ruin their lives anyways, so she starts using her ability to dole out justice instead. Headey will join the previously announced Briana Evigan in the cast.
Okay, so we expected to Zenescope's new "Charmed" comic book based on the hit television series to be pretty sexy — after all, the publisher has never shied away from injecting their comics with ample amounts of curves. But when they sent us this exclusive wraparound cover for "Charmed" #2, created by superstar artist Greg Horn, I actually had to ask if it's okay to post on the site here.
Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself:
"Charmed # 0" will hit shelves in June and issue #1 will debut at the San Diego Comic-Con International in July.
