Zenescope Entertainment, an indie publisher that is celebrating its fifteenth year publishing horror and dark fantasy comics, is debuting their January 2021 offerings here at Bleeding Cool. The company known for long-running titles such as Grimm Fairy Tales and Robyn Hood, as well as occasional licensed titles including Charmed and Se7en, is following through on what editor Dave Franchini told Bleeding Cool earlier this month, switching their format to one-shots and quarterlies. In addition to their main titles continuing in this format, there will also be a miniseries sequel to writer Ralph Tedesco's The Courier from 2017.

They became known as the Darkwatchers!
Along the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, there have been tales of beings who watch travelers from the horizon, and some say those who look upon them vanish, never to be see again.
