I know the covers are... provocative, but does anyone else read these books? I fell off a bit after Pat Shand left the company, but I still pick up the occasional run during the Comixology sales and enjoy what I read.
Manga, comics, who cares? They're pretty much the same thing.

You are literally the only person I've ever seen discuss the contents of a Zenescope book. I'd say you're possibly unique amongst their customer base. Huzzah! :clap:

What can I say? Seeing big titty ladies fighting giant monsters is a fun time. They've recently scaled back the T&A inside the books (the covers are still classic Zenescope...), but with that they saw sales crater.

Elveen one time said that he does good business with Zenescope books.

Every so often I hear someone say they read Zenescope books for the articles, so to speak.

This thread is great.

My LCS does order a few Zenescope books for certain customers who they acknowledge buy them solely for the covers.

I picked up a few over the last couple years because Jay Anacleto did a few covers. I actually read them because I read all my comics. They were terrible. Stories were cliche messes and the interior art is amateur hour.
