    Grimm Fairy Tales presents The Little Mermaid #5 is a fitting conclusion to this first volume. What we get out of it is a protagonist that seems somewhat ready to accept her destiny while solving some familial questions along the way. Truth be told I wanted a bit more from it's final two pages but that's a minor complaint in a mini-series that easily held my attention from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Our series ends on a very Conan note with our protagonist reluctantly sitting on the Throne of Atlantis as the new queen and feeling very trapped by it as our octo-womanantagonist looms in the shadows with her inevitable return to claim the throne for herself. It remains to be see how either character will cope with what lies ahead of them but, as with Conan; that is a story for a different time. After reading so many books that neither resolved nor set up anything after the first arc it's appreciated that they at least tried, and succeeded, in keeping the story open for continuation. The book is not revolutionary, but it is well done. It's a solid piece of entertainment that will help you kill some time and will most likely leave you satisfied at the end. Plus it has barely clothed fish ladies in it with big ol' boobies, your mileage may vary depending on age and maturity. Read Full Review

    Grimm Fairy Tales: The Little Mermaid was never aiming to be a masterpiece. Zenescope's books have always been about delivering sexy women and brutal combat. But in abandoning the series' sensual antagonist and focusing on a bland conflict, Meredith Finch and Miguel Mendonca have wasted an opportunity to give a satisfying conclusion to this limited series. A lack of focus on Erica as a character results in a comic that can't pull its audience in, especially when the book veers off to a battle that she only joins in the end. Ultimately, this is a disappointing conclusion to a subpar title that couldn't deliver on its own promises. Read Full Review
