“Grimm Fairy Tales Presents: The Little Mermaid” #1 is a new title by Zenescope Entertainment.
This issue is just a basic introduction of the main character Erica (a mermaid), who is imprisoned in an aquarium of sorts. There are two brief flashbacks one at the start of the book, showing a woman named Ms. Fisher falling off a yacht 20 years before the setting of the story.
The second flashback shows how Erica is captured when she tries to help someone who she thinks is drowning in the ocean.
Like all of Zenescope’s titles the artwork in this book is beautifully done. The story is good so far as well. It doesn’t really delve into much other than the two flashbacks and a little bit of Erica in her prison. During the last couple pages of this issue you also meet a mermaid-esque creature, who I assume will be the major villain. Half-human and half-octopus she reminds me of Ursula from Disney’s interpretation of “The Little Mermaid.”
I cannot wait for issue two of this comic to read more of the story.
