The Little Mermaid: A Feminist Retelling (Zine)
Materials: graphite, paper, laser printer, photoshop
Mermaids are dark and dangerous and you should never, ever capture one and keep it as a pet –– for they are children of the unmerciful sea and will conquer all who would seek to tame them.
The Little Mermaid: A Feminist Retelling is not the classic story of a mermaid princess who gives up her voice, her family, and her immortality for a man (and also sort of for a chance to get into Heaven and to scare little Victorian children into behaving? The original story is very weird). Instead, this is the story of a feral fish monster who suddenly finds herself in 19th century European society.
A fifteen-page zine measuring 5.5" x 7.5". Also available at Crescent City Comics (3135 Calhoun St, New Orleans, LA 70125) and at the Glitter Box (1109 Royal St. New Orleans, LA 70116).

It was much smaller that I expected, but the story and illustrations are perfect. I love the idea of her being feral. More fish than human, as Mermaids probably are.
Thank you for my zine!
Fun and clever little book - Thanks!
