Staff Pick (September12): My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1
Aug 17, 2012
OMG ponies! OMG Katie Cook! Just OMG! For awhile I’ve been wondering “where’s the My Little Pony comic? Who is going to jump on this hot commodity?” Well the answer is here…IDW Publishing announced at this past San Diego Comic Con they are going to be publishing a series based on The Hub’s popular animated series.
There are 6 main covers to the series – Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Applejack. I’m at odds with myself trying to decide which cover I want: Pinkie Pie or Twilight Sparkle. That’s like trying to decide which of your children you like best.
Speaking of children…I am also a huge fan of Katie Cook so seeing her as the writer of this series excites me to no end. Part of my Friday thrill is seeing the newest post of her webcomic, Gronk: A Monster’s Story. I love Katie Cook. I love ponies. I love IDW for bringing My Little Pony to print.
