Little Mermaid Creative Team Speaks Part 2! New Interior Pages and Cover!

LM_OrderFormGrimm Fairy Tales: The Little Mermaid (releasing 2/25) features 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.
Having first appeared in Grimm Fairy Tales: Myths and Legends, Zenescope’s Little Mermaid, Erica, embarks on a brand new journey.

 

Even t008-9 Little Mermaid 1 Colorshough issue #1 is still in production, what has been your favorite panel to color?
Ivan Nunes: Yes, we are still at the beginning, but my favorite so far is the page 8 with Erica in her siren/monster form destroying the octopuses. I personally found that this panel became great.

This is your second miniseries with Zenescope. Do you find yourself approaching it differently from your first, Warlord of Oz?
Miguel Mendonca: I do. Each story has its own feeling and I try to represent that on the way that world is drawn. I’ll be happy if the reader can get a sense of two very different worlds just by looking at the pages when comparing Warlord of Oz with The Little Mermaid.

Do you have a favorite rendition of the Little Mermaid? What made it memorable for you?
Ivan Nunes: I would say…sirens in general. They are memorable because they are mythological creatures that unite the two extremes. On the one side all the beauty and sensuality, and the other a monster without the slightest compassion as they hunt their prey.

How were you first introduced to the story of the Little Mermaid? Will you include any elements from that, and what do you intend to bring that will make it stand out from other retellings?
Miguel Mendonca: I grew up with Disney movies and cartoons. The Lion King and Aladdin are among some of my favorite animations ever (along with a bunch of Anime/manga movies). 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

Even though this is building upon Zenescope’s previous Little Mermaid issues, this is considered a launch title. How would you describe this miniseries to new readers?
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 … version(s). In addition to some great artwork, fans can look forward to seeing some old favorites like the Sea Witch stirring up the proverbial pot and we are also integrating this story more into the Zenescope universe.

ZENESCOPE AND CBS BRING BACK CHARMED

Charmed.2.Horn

Zenescope Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products are bringing the fan-favorite series CHARMED back to comic book and graphic novel formats this Fall. Zenescope published the first 24 issues of the bestselling series from June 2010 through September 2012.

Constance M. Burge created the popular TV series, which starred Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty. Charmed aired from 1998 through 2006, and found a new life as original comics when Zenescope began publishing “Season 9” four years ago. Now, Zenescope will release a brand new “Season 10” in an on-going monthly comic book series with trade paperback collections released twice each year.
“I’m so glad to announce this news.” said Zenescope Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco.

“Charmed fans are an extremely rabid and loyal group. They write us all the time, asking about Season 10 since it’s been almost two years since the last issue was released. We’re happy to let them all know that it’s been worth the wait — we’re coming back with a brand new arc and a ton of surprises that we feel will absolutely satisfy hardcore Charmed fans, while also appealing to new readers.”

The first issue of Season 10 will debut at New York Comic Con the weekend of October 9, 2014. Original comic book series writer Paul Ruditis will edit the series and Zenescope writer Pat Shand (Angel, Robyn Hood) takes the helm penning the new arc. The art team will be announced next month.
