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