CINDERELLA: AGE OF DARKNESS takes place in the apocalyptic landscape of Zenescope's massive REALM WAR event, which saw the realms of Wonderland, Neverland, Myst, and Oz merge with Earth. Now that the world is being ruled by the Dark Horde, Cinderella, the Horde's one-time most valued assassin, finds herself in way over her head. Because the thing about Cindy? She sucks at her job.

In this action-packed comedy, Cinderella must hunt down the last living god... Hades.

    Critical Blast - S.J. Mitchell Oct 28, 2014

    The first of three issues in the Cinderalla: Age of Darkness mini-series, by Zenescope, was a lot of fun. It contains a nice mix of violence, drama and levity blended with wonderful art. Pat Shand once again delivers a fantastical first chapter in his latest comic book fairy-tale adventure. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Oct 29, 2014

    Cinderella presents quite an entertaining read with great writing for readers who have been following Realm War or those who are just jumping in. The comedic wit is supported with the some great art which captures the essence of Cindy's condescending face. If you want to see some of your favorite childhood figures behead people and get into vulgar arguments, this is the comic for you. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Nov 6, 2014

    Cinderella #1 provides a great new take on this character, what you are seeing here is complete originality, as Cindy is nothing like the girl you thought she was. This issue is able to stand on its own even though the intention was to blend it into the events of Realm War, proving that the writing is good enough to keep any reader entertained.

    Geekality - Ryan Marshall Nov 3, 2014

    Also who knew that this issues biggest “lol” moment would come from The Dark Queen just by giving her unrestrained and raw opinionabout how Cindy got as far as she did mainly because Malec has a soft spot for blondes with perky breasts. Read Full Review

If you're already reading otherGrimm Fairy Tales, then you don't have a reason to not pick this up. If you're looking for a new series, and you've always wanted to try a bookset in this universe, then this is a good one to jump onto. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jason DiGioia Nov 5, 2014

    Early in the book, the Dark Queen says, "[Cinderella] has only been granted her position of power within the horde because of Malec's soft spot for blondes with perky breasts." I can't help but think, and hope, that the writers are having a wink-wink moment with the audience. I really think Cinderella has only been granted this titular miniseries because of readers' soft spots for blondes with perky breasts. Read Full Review
