Those of you who haven't kept up with IDW's My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic comic may not be aware of this, but the junk has gotten real over the last few issues. In the latest story arc by CA favorites Katie Cook and Andy Price, everyone's favorite ponies have found themselves in a Star Trek style parallel universe, where the good guys are bad, Applejack is a member of the pony Mafia, and Princess Celestia is eeeeeeeeevil.

But those aren't the only revelations they're providing. This week's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #19 also explores the rarely seen past of (good) Celestia, in that shady period of time between exiling her sister to the moon and taking Twilight Sparkle as her student.

From IDW's official solicitation info:

As our favorite ponies traverse a strange new world, the secret history of Celestia comes to life! Will the choices she made years ago come back to haunt her and doom an entire world? And which surprising pony is at the heart of her choice?

Check out seven pages from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #19, along with covers by Price, Tony Fleecs and Amy Mebberson  below.
