    The fluidity of Mendonca's artwork shines as he brings Finch's narrative alive in this issue. However, with the moralities of these two worlds merging, so too does the wall separating them become murky. Read Full Review

    Erica is on the run, while her father makes a massive decision. Entertaining read with good visuals. Read Full Review

    This issue is well worth the pick up, even if it's only for the front cover. You can't really be too picky not picking up the issue seeing as the series is only 5 issues long. Every issue is important to the story and each provide that bit more info that will hopefully leave us with a decent ending. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt May 21, 2015

    This is not an entirely fresh take on the Little Mermaid fairy tale, but it does give some new to go with the old. While some parts of this come off looking as though they were taken straight out of an Aquaman issue, there are other parts which attempt to frame the idea of a mermaid as something a little different. Evidently Zenescope wants another main hero to include in its ensemble, and for that it cannot really be faulted, as its treatment of female heroes is generally pretty good compared to the industry standard, and as there are not really enough female characters out there. This ends up being somewhere in between of some of the better stuff that Zenescope puts out as compared to its confusing main series. It is not necessarily memorable, but still worth a look.
