It wasn't that long ago that the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic animated series did an episode all about the joys of reading. It's a good lesson for the kids, but it does raise an interesting question about just where you go with literary themes once that's done -- especially in the MLP comic, which is presumably already being read by children who enjoy, you know, reading. Well, if you're Heather Nuhfer, Amy Mebberson and Heather Breckel, then the answer is simple: You tell a story all about how the joy of reading presents its own life-threatening (but fun and adventurous) dangers!

Such is the case in this week's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #15, where Twilight Sparkle and her running crew have to contend with page-devouring bookworms by jumping into their favorite books, and potentially destroying the bonds that separate fiction from reality. Well. Pony reality, I mean. Check out the first few pages below!

 

 

Not for nothin', Twilight, but If you're only seven pages into this whole thing, I doubt things are going to be back to normal. Otherwise, that's going to be a pretty boring comic.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic #15 is out this Wednesday, January 15. Here's the official solicitation:

Things are getting positively bookish in Ponyville! When a magical bookworm starts to cause some literary mischief, it's only a matter of time before things start to get out of hoof! It's up to our ponies to set things right... but will they want to when Daring Do shows up?
