Exclusive Preview – Grimm Fairy Tales: The Little Mermaid


Grimm Fairy Tales: The Little Mermaid will feature the creative team of writer Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman, Grimm Tales of Terror, Tales from Oz), artist Miguel Mendonca (Warlord of OZ, Tales from OZ, OZ), and colorist Ivan Nunes (Grimm Fairy Tales, Game of Thrones, Green Hornet). Cover artists include David Finch, Ed Benes, Jason Metcalf, Mirka Andolfo, and Mike Krome.

Part 1 – When asked how Zenescope’s Little Mermaid stands out from other retellings, the creative team offered some interesting insight.

Meredith Finch:This is a story that really gives the reader a lot of insight into who Zenescope’s Little Mermaid is, including her parentage and we get to explore, in a new way, the idea of mermaid/human interaction and attraction. The ultimate outcome is something very different from what readers have come to expect, given the well-known Disney version.”

Miguel Mendonca :For the Little Mermaid, my first contact was with the cartoon series, I clearly remember watching it every Saturday morning as a kid. I do try to include elements from that on the boards, part of it comes naturally, but I also think it’s important that people can recognize something from the characters that they already knew. As for standing out from other retellings, I’m not that worried that it doesn’t since, the way Meredith Finch is writing it, right from the beginning you understand this is not your regular Little Mermaid story. Of course, I always try to give it my personal touch, and that in itself I’m hoping stands out.”

Meredith Finch: “I am really looking forward to exploring Zenescope’s version of The Little Mermaid.  We are going to explore the history of the character from a new perspective and the impact of past rivalries on her present. “

  1. I’ve got to say I was excited about this when I read the first synopsis and very disappointed when I saw the name Ariel in the second. I was hoping that we were finally going to get a better look at Erica’s story. I know Sara’s dead, but is Lucy still around? What about Stephen? Which side does Erica get her highborn blood from? Will Samantha follow through on her promise to try again to save Erica from Esmeralda?
    Also, why the name Ariel. It’s been a while since I’ve read it, but I don’t think the original little mermaid had a name and I don’t think anyone that did name her used Ariel, except for Disney. I will be reading the mini-series, but I would be much more interested in this if you went back to the source material and not Disney.

    1. Hi Marlena,
      I’m sorry for any confusion but this Little Mermaid story is definitely about Erica! We’re excited to share her story with our readers! Have you pre-ordered the series yet? We’ll have a pre-order form on the blog later today, you can print it out and take it to your local comic book shop!
      Thanks – Zenescope Entertainment

      1. Thanks for the clarification. I’m glad to hear it. I’ve been wanting to know more about Erica for a long time. Yes, I have preordered it from my comic book store. There was a bit of confusion, so I haven’t ordered anything yet from January’s preorders (the issues coming out in March), but I’ll be doing that this week when I go to pick up Charmed #4. Definitely eager to read the series, again.
