If you've spent any time on this site at all, you probably know that some of us are big fans of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

In the first arc of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic, everyone's favorite highly marketable horses had to deal with body-snatchers, vampire jackalopes and a cameo appearance by the bad guy from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
