Great Comics That Never Happened #21: Jack Kirby’s ‘My Little Pony’

In our recurring feature, ComicsAlliance writer Chris Sims and a rotating cast of talented artists imagine a finer world to bring you a look at the Best Comics Ever that Did Not, Will Not, and occasionally Can Not Happen! This week, the incredible Tom Scioli, artist of Image’s Godland and American Barbarian joins us for what would have unquestionably been the single greatest comic book of all time.

In the 1980s, the legendary Jack Kirby began designing characters and toys for cartoons, many of which were never produced. Sadly, the King of Comics never got to put his stamp on famous toys like G.I. Joe or Transformers, but there’s one property we wish he’d tackled more than any other: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic!

Catch the massive full-sized image and the story that goes along with it after the jump!
