RW_TPB01_cover_cropped

Following the epic and shocking events of Grimm Fairy Tales #100, the Age of Darkness has descended upon the Grimm Universe!

The Dark Queen successfully merged Earth with the surrounding realms of Wonderland, Neverland, Oz, and Myst. She now rules over a frighteningly apocalyptic new world.

As thousands of innocents are being killed and enslaved daily, what is left of the Realm Knights fights a losing battle against the Dark Horde. But there is still one person left alive who has the chance to stop the Dark Queen and put an end to her reign… her name is Sela Mathers.

This trade paperback collects Issues 1 through 6 of Zenescope Entertainment’s 12-issue Grimm Fairy Tales: Realm War series.

Story So Far…
The four realms have fallen and an Age of Darkness has arrived.
The Dark Queen begins her reign after merging the realms with
Earth. The survivors must band together in order to defeat her
and restore order. But with several Realm Knights dead and the
Grimm Universe thrown into chaos, can Sela and her remaining
team stand against the Dark Queen and her army?

PREVIOUSLY IN REALM WAR…
Though Sela wanted to stay and fight alongside Shang against
the Dark Queen’s attack, she made the choice to leave in the
hopes of acquiring a weapon powerful enough to end her mortal
enemy. But the possible loss of her mentor leaves Sela shaken.
Meanwhile, the Dark One continues setting up his betrayal of the
Dark Queen. And with Venus secured as his second in command,
he knows he must strike soon.

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.
