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.

Interview with a Zenescope Creative – Holiday Edition

Zenescope Cover Artist, Chris Ehnot, takes some time to answer our Holiday questionnaire. Chris’ most recent cover is featured in Robyn Hood Ongoing #5, out this wednesday!

  • What is on your holiday wish list this year?

    A maid, but most likely I am going to still end up with socks

  • Any amusing holiday stories you’d like to share?

    I hate wrapping gifts and so several years ago I decided to give everybody their gifts inside large moving boxes. I also like to give my family a difficult time opening my gifts as well. Sometimes I will put a small item in a tiny box, inside a larger box and do this 5 to 6 imps so they have to open 6 boxes just for 1 gift.

  • Any holiday traditions?

    Wake up at 5 am, head downstairs and open presents by 7 am

  • Do you have a favorite Christmas / Holiday movie?

    Charlie Brown Christmas

  • Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions?  What are they?

    Lose my beer gut, already began that. Also more professional work.

  • What are you looking forward to in 2015?

    Star Wars Episode 7

  • List any websites or links you’d like us to share.

Interview with a Zenescope Creative – Holiday Edition

This week we have Tales From Oz writer Jeff Massey answer our fun Holiday Questionnaire!

  • What is on your holiday wish list this year?

    Sleep would be nice.

  • What is the best holiday gift you ever received?

    I should say “my children” or “true love,” but if I’m entirely honest, it was the Dungeon Master’s Guide (1st Edition).  I was in elementary school, my favorite uncle gave it to me, I was lost in study for the rest of the day.  I’ve pretty much DM’ed my way through life ever since.

  • Do you have a favorite Christmas / Holiday movie?

    My brother and I make every effort to watch We’re No Angels together every year.  Not the crappy ‘80s film with De Niro and Sean Penn—but the original 1955 classic with Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov, and Aldo Ray.  Amazing dark comedy about three convicts (and their pet snake, Adolph) who escape Devil’s Island and end up as good Samaritans to a hapless family around Christmastime.  The definition of “wry humor.”  People die: it’s funny.

  • Any holiday traditions?

    It’s not officially Xmas until I hear “Christmas Wrapping” by the Waitresses on the radio.  Any DJ who plays that song before Thanksgiving is dead to me.

  • 2015 is right around the corner!  Any big plans to ring in the New Year?

    Sleep!

  • Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions?  What are they?

    Same as last year: “more production, less consumption.”  I usually stick to it for about half a year—hence the need for a yearly resolution.

Interview with a Zenescope Creative – Holiday Edition

LaToya Morgan, writer of Goddess Inc., shares some of her favorite things about the Holiday seasons!

  1. What is on your holiday wish list this year?

    I usually have lots of gadgety things on my holiday wish list. The latest phone, e-reader, headphones, etc.  Also, lots of books.  I love to pilfer the “Best of” Lists and catch up on my reading.

  1. What is the best holiday gift you ever received?

    My favorite gift to get every year is the $10 my grandmother would give me for Christmas.  Somehow, she always made it feel like a million dollars.

  1. Any amusing holiday stories you’d like to share?

    The White Elephant game at work is always fun.  One year people brought cheesy gifts and I got an ’80s action flick full of people I’d never heard of.  It was terrible and hilarious.  Such a fun gift.

  1. Any holiday traditions?

    In my family, you can open one gift Christmas Eve and have to wait to open the rest on Christmas.  I love the mounting anticipation.

  1. Do you have a favorite Christmas / Holiday movie?

    My absolute favorite Christmas movie is Die Hard.  A close second is Scrooged.  I love Bill Murray in that movie.

  1. 2015 is right around the corner!  Any big plans to ring in the New Year?

    My plan is to write more comics!  And finally do a book signing at one of the cons.

  1. Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions?  What are they?

    My New Years’ Resolution — travel more.  There are so many places I haven’t seen — and I’m dying to see them!

  1. What are you looking forward to in 2015?

    I’m looking forward to keeping my resolution and traveling to far away places.  I’m also hoping to write a lot more and get a few projects I’m really excited about off the ground.

  1. List any websites or links you’d like us to share.
