Posted by G-Man (31830 posts) - - Show Bio

This past weekend was Free Comic Book Day. That's when comic shops order the special giveaway comics for customers to check out. Some publishers put out original content while others provide reprints of past stories. Dynamite Entertainment's release included the new DAMSELS MERMAIDS and GRIMM series, both starting this week in their own #1 issues.

If you didn't get a chance to visit your local shop or if they ran out, Dynamite Entertainment has provided us with the complete FCBD issues to share with all of you.


(W) Matthew Sturges (A) Jean-Paul Deshong (CA) Stephanie Hans

The Little Mermaid has been captured by a cruel wizard, who intends to keep her locked away forever. But help comes in the form of a valiant one-legged tin soldier whose heart is far bigger than he is. Can the Little Mermaid escape her vicious captor with nothing but a talking toy to guide her? Find out in this fairy tale for all ages written by Matthew Sturges (Jack of Fables, Doctor Who).

If you've been watching Grimm on television, you have an idea what to expect. The new series begins this week and here's the FCBD issue:

(W) David Greenwalt & Various (A) Jose Malaga (CA) Whilce Portacio

Discover the characters, creatures and inspiration behind the storyline of NBC's hit-series, Grimm! From the producers of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, Grimm features Portland homicide detective Nick Buckhardt, as he discovers he's descended from a long line of "Grimms," who are charged with keeping balance between humanity and the creatures of myth. With newly awoken abilities to detect the evil lurking among us, Nick struggles to keep his old life separate and safe as he becomes ever more entrenched in the ancient rivalries of the Grimm world.

I love that Dynamite shared the issues with everyone! FCBD can get a little bit hectic, especially when stores have a 2- or 3-book limit.

Mermaid looks interesting -- a mixing of old stories and re-introducing them in a very original way. Just what I love.

Thank you for sharing both comics.
