    Other wise the artwork is far from Disney, which is a great thing, as you can't really compare the two versions the same way. This comic stands out on its own in regards to that and I love it! Read Full Review

    You won't find any cutsy singing lobsters giving you love advice here, but you will find your share of suspense and vibrant artwork. Writer Meredith Finch, along with artists Miguel Mendonca and Ivan Nunes have put together an edgy version of the classic tale, paired with a mysterious plot and alluring colors of the life below the surface.

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Feb 24, 2015

    There is maybe a long way to go for Erica, but it would seem the the route for a return to relevance is there. Zenescope has been moderately successful into turning Robyn Hood into a female Green Arrow, and with this new outlook it might be possible that Zenescope is looking for a female Aquaman. Whatever there intention for the character is though, it would seem as the redemption is there for her. At times the stories from Grimm Fairy Tales can be tedious and hard to get through, but then sometimes they really throw as much creativity as they can at an old story and then come up with some new and entertaining, which is the case here.

    Geekality - Ryan Marshall Feb 23, 2015

    All in all this was a very unified self-contained issue. It did a great job in merging a classic mythology with the modern human world and technology, but you always knew this is Ericas story. The transitions between the exposition scenes and the present day ones also flowed very nicely and never felt offbeat. Also the art was also completely wonderful, especially with Ursula and her expressions and the Octopus was very cool. Though this may feel like a nice quiet issue, the volume raises towards the end to a level with urgency. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Mia Faller Feb 27, 2015

    Comic Crusaders - Martin Ferretti Feb 25, 2015

    Overall, The Little Mermaid #1 is a solid start to a series which has definitely peaked my interest. While the comparison to Aspen's Fathom may seem a little obvious at times, that's not a bad comparison to make as this book does just as well at updating and old concept and making it interesting for a new audience.

    Project-Nerd - Jarrod Feb 21, 2015

    Overall, this was a well-written issue with art that fits into the mold of the Grimm Fairy Tales universe. If you're already a fan of these books then you'll swim a mermaid flip with this new title. If you're new to this world, you might take a few pages to figure out what is going on, but it's worth the attempt. Read Full Review

    Buccaneer Book Reviews - Cap'n Aldous B. Adder Mar 3, 2015

    A very rare instance when I have nothing but praise for the art and none for the writing. I was hoping that my assumptions and the hubbub about Finch being a poor writer were mere fan-rage, but this comic does little to kill that image and I'm definitely not picking up this comic anytime soon. Or any other of their "Grimm.." line if this is any indication of story quality. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Aaron Halverson Feb 25, 2015

    This isn't a rush out and get it book. If you already have a full reading list this week then by all means skip this one and put the money towards something you might like more. If you're a Zenescope fan or a fan of loosely adapted fairy tales then you could probably do worse but don't go out of your way. Read Full Review
