    The artwork is sexy, vibrant, intriguing and filled with amazing detail. Just look at the front cover, it just invites you to open your wallet. This is carried on throughout the issue, and wow how I love the character designs. Just wait til you see the Prince after he talks with the Sea Witch. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez May 24, 2015

    Mendonca continues to brilliantly illustrate Finch's moving story with the shifting themes of warm oceans and sterile laboratories like the ebb and flow of the unceasing tides. But now, the two worlds seem to be merging as it becomes difficult to differentiate between the distant realms. Converging themes make one ideology perfectly clear: Darkness will always overcome if it allowed to flourish in the Light. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Mar 25, 2015

    Grimm Fairy Tales presents The Little Mermaid #2 is an impressive continuation to the story that was introduced last time around. Yes, it's titular character may be missing for the majority of the issue, but that doesn't stop King Issoro's part in this tale from astounding. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Mar 25, 2015

    While the quality of storytelling is still strong enough here, it doesn't really capitalize on the concept that was introduced in the first issue. Instead it goes after the lowest hanging fruit of any mermaid story, which is to associate immediately with Atlantis. While this is handled in an interesting way, it is a little bit of a letdown compared to the first issue. The story is still heading in an interesting direction, it is only for the creative team to capitalize on the potential that they have already created for themselves. Read Full Review

    A mixed bag. I want the adventures of the Little Mermaid, not her mom and dad. I'll be happy if the focus turns in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Mar 23, 2015

    I am sorry to say, that despite the excellent production values, which may lead me to try another Grimm book, I won't be picking up issue #3. This has nothing to do with either Finch or Mendonca, it's just I have seen this story too many times for this version to hold any water. Read Full Review

    Where was I? Oh yes, I was starting a third paragraph to bloat this review a bit. So we bookend on Little Mermaid getting experimented on and making a friend with one of the scientists in the span of a handful of panels. The rest of the story goes 20 years into the past with a woman looking for a merman. That merman is the Prince of Atlantis and Aquaman is his father. Not really but really it's just Aquaman with a tail. Anyway he apparently wants to be human so he drinks something he found on the ocean floor. How do you drink something underwater anyway? Is it because the liquid is heavier than the surrounding sea water? Is that how that works? You might want to adjust certain story elements to compensate for the fact that you're under-god-damn-water. But this merman turned manmer gets it on with some lady who I'm assuming is Little Mermaids mom. Aaaaaaaand that's the whole issue really. Not a whole lot going on and not a lot of hope for the future. Read Full Review
