Horror/Comedy Man Goat & The Bunny Man Leads Zenescope April Titles

Zenescope is known for the blend of dark fantasy, horror, and superhero action that defines the tone of their main line of Grimm Universe titles. This includes their flagship titles Grimm Fairy Tales, Robyn Hood, Van Helsing, and Wonderland, as well as relatively newer titles like Mystere and Belle. However, they have also released their fair share of comedy books, including Hollywood Zombie Apocalypse by writer Ralph Tedesco and even a webseries called Comic Company that mixed a mockumentary, The Office-inspired style with some zany fantasy elements. The Pennsylvania-based company's new horror/comedy comic, Man Goat & The Bunny Man, will lead their April 2021 releases along with new issues of the Mystere and the return of Neverland, once a staple series.

Dealing with the things nightmares are made of so we don't have to — deranged mutants, satanic cults, demons, summer vacationers — Man Goat and the Bunny Man protect us from the evils that hide in plain sight. But they don't want your adoration; they just want to be left alone.
