‘My Little Pony’ Goes Superhero In ‘MLP Annual 2014′ [Preview]

My Little Pony Annual #2014

Listen, I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic a lot, but if there's one crucial flaw in the entire franchise, it's that it's not about superheroes. I mean, honestly, I like friendship and peppy songs as much as anyone, but how am I supposed to enjoy those things in comic book form if they do not also involve using phenomenal powers to concuss evildoers?

Fortunately for me, that problem has been neatly solved by writer Ted Anderson (also known as NPR's Chief Brony Correspondent), artist Ben Bates and colorist Heather Breckel, in the pages of next week's My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Annual 2014. It seems there are now pony superheroes and, more importantly, thematic pony villains who are dressed as hot-rod mummies. Really.

Big In The Marines: Artist Andy Price On ‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’ [Interview]

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, IDW

Andy Price has brought joy to licensed comics. His work on IDW’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic necessarily follows the established look of the animated TV series, but Price's playfulness and skill enliven every page: imaginative lettering, dramatically lit villains, too many background gags to count. The most recently completed arc of the series, 'Reflections,' encompasses an alternate universe, doomed love, some truly intense crosshatching, and a general willingness to play with the characters in a way licensed comics typically avoid.

Along with writer Katie Cook, Price has developed Hasbro’s land of pastel ponies into something a little wilder and a little weirder, yet ensured that it remains enormously compelling to kids and adults alike. ComicsAlliance sat down with Price at San Diego Comic-Con to discuss how he and Cook pulled this off, his thoughts on Brony fandom, and, of course, his pick for best pony.

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.

Emerald City Comicon And We Love Fine Team-Up For Exclusive Apparel With Marvel, My Little Pony, Adventure Time And More [Fashion]

Untitled-1

Offering a notably comics-specific, distinctly warm and fuzzy vibe that's not to be found at some of the massive and monstrous, comics-suppressing conventions here in the US, Seattle's Emerald City Comicon feels a lot more like comics summer camp than it does a media trade show. Comics professionals from all dimensions of the industry -- creators, publishers, press and beyond -- all look forward to ECCC for the same reasons attendees do; it's a great weekend to meet your readers, meet your favorite authors, and celebrate the medium we all love.

Also, buying cool stuff.

That same summer camp quality that makes ECCC worth attending may also make it worth commemorating, which is why it makes sense that geek fashion haus We Love Fine has made its first ever partnership with a convention with a limited edition line of t-shirts. Featuring Marvel characters like Captain Marvel, Hawkeye and Deadpool as well as other We Love Fine licenses like My Little Pony, Transformers, ElfQuest, Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time and Bee & Puppycat alongside Seattle iconography (very cute), the ECCCxWLF collection will be available exclusively for $25 each at the Seattle show from March 27-30.

You can inspect the designs below. More info at the show's merchandise page.

Everyone’s Favorite Horses Parody ‘Lord Of The Rings’ And ‘Star Trek’ In ‘My Little Pony’ #16 [Preview]

My Little Pony #16, IDW

Since you're reading this on the Internet, I'm going to go ahead and assume that there's a significant chance you've wondered what Star Trek would be like if the Enterprise was crewed by Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle instead of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. Well wonder no longer, friends and neighbors! In this week's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #16, Heather Nuhfer and Amy Mebberson are answering your crossover queries once and for all.

Trapped in a storybook with the actual stories devoured by the magical Bookworm, the Ponies are forced to make up their own stories, and so naturally, they turn to recreating Star Trek and Lord of the Rings. Apparently fanfic is magic, too. Check 'em out below!

The Gang Learns Reading Is Fun And Potentially Life-Threatening In ‘My Little Pony’ #15 [Preview]

My Little Pony #15, IDW

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!

You ever fight a giant crab for its treasure map with your pirate crew of magical ponies from another realm? If your answer is "no" -- and if it isn't, we envy you greatly -- then IDW's My Little Pony Friendship is Magic #14 is probably fit for your consumption. The concluding chapter in a two-part "X Marks the Spots" adventure, the new issue by Heather Nuhfer, artist Brenda Hickey and colorist Heather Breckel shows what happens when horses hit the high seas full with a taste for treasure and a talent for conferring with crustaceans.

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life For ‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’ #13 [Preview]

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #13, IDW

As you can probably tell from the title, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is pretty heavily based around, well, friendship. Being nice to each other, supporting their fellow ponies through the tough times, sharing common interests and overall kindness. So, you know, what better way to express those ideas of friendship and togetherness than by ditching Ponyville and heading out to the high seas for a life of lawless pillaging under as pirates!

That's the premise of Heather Nuhfer and Brenda Hickey's story in MLP:FiM #13, where everyone's favorite Equestrians join up with Hoofbeard the Pirate for an all-new buccaneer adventure. We only have the first few pages, but from what I've seen so far, I'm fully expecting it to mirror the plot of Assassins Creed IV, right down to someone air-assassinating an ocelot. Check it out below!

Alex de Campi And Carla Speed McNeil Talk ‘My Little Pony: Friends Forever’ [Interview]

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic screenshot

Last week, we brought you the news that IDW was launching My Little Pony: Friends Forever, an all-new, all-pony team-up series kicking off in January. The idea behind the new ongoing title is to pair up two members of the MLP cast for new adventures, and things are starting off in the first issue with a team up that's even more interesting than Pinkie Pie and Applejack having a bake-off: writer Alex de Campi and artist Carla Speed McNeil.

This week, I spoke to de Campi and McNeil to find out more about their approach to the characters, their favorite moments from the show and their ideal plans for Rainbow Dash -- which I can assure you are awesome.
