My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Comics:

That's right, folks! My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is being adapted into comics, and it's already started out with a bang!

The kind of bang that makes me sit there and think, "I Knew It! I knew it! I knew Queen Chrysalis and the Changelings would come back and infiltrate Ponyville!
Oh, Equestria, we stand on guard for thee!
Well that's stupid. The kind of petulant man-children who delude them self into thinking that show is good because it's trendy aren't the kind of people who actually buy things, they're the kind who pirate things.

Still, as a lover of the comics industry, I'm happy to see more comics on the shelves aimed at other demographics, so I do hope this does well. When was the last time we saw a proper "girly" comic on the shelves, really?

[up] I'm guessing you're not a Brony. sad That's okay! Not everyone can be a fan of one thing. smile

Personally, I'm glad to see Western comics that aren't automatically superhero stories for a change. grin Come to think of it, did the My Little Pony franchise have comics before Generation 4 came onto the scene?

It is not that surprising. Power Puff Girls from the same Network had a comic too. Edit: GI JOE and Transformers, from the same toy manufacturer, have comics too. We may have been cheated out of the Conan(And Zoids) crossover but this could still have some amusing potential.

There's a couple of fairly short lived ones. All from Europe, oddly.

[up] Well, then having MLPFIM comics released in North America is going to set a new record for the franchise! smile

Come to think of it, the fourth generation seems to setting new records for the franchise. I wouldn't be surprised if they have a storyline of the ponies having to go to Tartarus! evil grin

Looking forward to this. From the previews we've seen I'm loving the art style. It looks similar to the show without being an exact copy.

If the Changelings are coming back then Discord needs to as well. And Trixie.
It has to be your place. Mine totally reeks of ocelot piss.

You're using western to mean American. Don't do that.

My sister was quite into the original My Little Pony when she was little, and had a couple of issues of the magazine. They weren't so much comics as illustrated stories, but close enough.

If the Changelings are coming back then Discord needs to as well. And Trixie.

And Luna has to become Nightmare Moon again. I figure something like if Chrysalis attacks Ponyville at night, she might take out Celestia easily enough, but then Luna says "You may have taken out my sister" (starts transforming) "but can you withstand the power of Nightmare Moon?" And then she uses her awesome dark magic to buy the mane cast time to retrieve the Elements of Harmony.
[up] Sorry. I guess it's pretty hard to figure out what the right terms are for that sort of situation. sad

Yeah, the great thing about these comics is that they could go into stuff that the cartoon might not be able to touch on! grin

YES. And then Luna weaponises the ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE.

True, but I hope they don't go Darker and Edgier just for the sake of it.

[up] Oh, I didn't mean that! surprised I meant more along the lines of the comics being able to feature things like a storyline starring Big Macintosh (My Little Pony Wiki spells it as Big McIntosh, interestingly enough), or...a storyline starring little Scootaloo! grin

Yeah, the comics could explore What Could Have Been scenarios! idea

That's kind of the standard with tie-in comics. Return visits by previous guests, and stories focused on minor characters to fill in because they can't get too ambitious with the mane cast.

Huh, apparently there have been so many pre-orders they delayed the release date. Makes me wonder what will happen in the meantime.

Gimmie the sit-rep.
Dammit, stop treating Celestia like she's Worf sad

(She's far prettier, for one :P)
Spooky.
I would definitely like to see at least one storyline with Princess Celestia and Princess Luna as the main characters. Specifically, I'd like to know what those two do when they're not on-screen! We'd probably see a lot of jaw-dropping stuff! wink

The same goes for Zecora. Maybe they could go into her backstory, showing where she came from, and why she went from a faraway land and settled in the Everfree Forest all alone.

There's a load of potential to be had here! evil grin

Hopefully, this will end up being a Gateway Series and get more people reading comics.

The comic sold over 90000 copies. That's good, isn't it?

Its better than a lot of Marvel's crap was doing before the economic recession. I hope it is good enough.

There should be a storyline starring Derpy Hooves herself. She's practically the mascot of Bronies, and if you combine her with these comics? Instant win, I think! grin

The Jossed
I only expect Derpy to be involved in Funny Background Events as she is in the show, after the "Derpygate" fiasco Hasbro seems hesitant to even refer to her by name (Derpy or her original name Ditzy Doo). Its unlikely we'll ever get an episode or comic starring her, and I think that's for the best. Too much fanservice can be a bad thing.

Anyways, it seems a few pages are being shown off somewhere. It certainly looks like Andy Price's art style. I found this picture rather interesting as it looks like Firefly is seen flying around up at the top...with Pinkie's hairstyle....

[up]Better-quality photos of those four pages from My Little Pony Project 2012 New York can be seen here.

Big Macintosh (My Little Pony Wiki spells it as Big McIntosh, interestingly enough)
That's because the toyline updated it from Macintosh to McIntosh (like with Heartstrings to Lyra Heartstrings and Lulamoon to Trixie Lulamoon), and McIntosh is also used by Lauren Faust and M.A. Larson; here's a compilation of sources using it (including less-significant ones).

Dangit, this is too many threads to follow. Also, I find post #2 hilarious in light of the fact that the release date actually got pushed back due to the number of preorders being far more than expected.

over 100, 000 copies sold before it even releases? (yeah yeah last official was 90, 000 but does anyone doubt it'll grow that large in the next month?) Seriously what's the average sales for a comic book these days?

Wow, I can't believe how good those comics look. I'm actually contemplating ordering some.

I know, the quality is outstanding. Also, I saw blues brothers ponies...I am happy now.
My fanfic outline.
