The Secret History Of ‘My Little Pony’ Is Finally Being Unearthed In ‘My Little Pony: Legends Of Magic’ [Exclusive]

My Little Pony: Legends of Magic #1, IDW

All right, look: I will admit that I have spent a truly inadvisable amount of time trying to figure out how the world of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is supposed to work. I know, I know, but just trust me on this one, there's a complex cosmology at work there involving the manual rotation of planets and cross-dimensional magic -- and that's just the start of things. But just when I was ready to throw in the towel and give up, there is new hope.

In April, IDW is launching a new My Little Pony series, replacing Friends Forever with the all-new Legends of Magic, launching with a new story by Jeremy Whitley and Brenda Hickey. It's a series that promises to explore "the secret history of Equestria," and between that description and the fact that there's a variant cover depicting the modern-day ponies straight up unearthing cave paintings of their '80s cartoon counterparts, and I have never been more intrigued. Read on for the exclusive announcement and some thoughts from Whitley and Hickey!

Strip Panel Naked: ‘Unstoppable Wasp’ And Dealing With Complicated Layouts

I love the fun Marvel books, like last week's Unstoppable Wasp. It reminds me why I started reading superhero comics in the first place, and the whole thing is a blast. You can tell the creators --- Jeremy Whitley, Elsa Charretier, Megan Wilson and Joe Caramagna --- are having tonnes of fun, too. It starts to bleed into the way they present the story, with some non-traditional layouts on quite a few pages.

The comics form is often limited to just regular panels, gridded pages and the like, but it's not the only way to draw a story on a page, obviously. So when you see an example like Nadia recounting a story of her father --- Hank Pym --- and it's told through the mask of Ant Man, that stands out. It breaks the normal mold of what you'd expect, and it does a couple of things that help tell a story.

Rosy Higgins and Ted Brandt on their Swashbuckling Artistic Process for ‘Princeless’ [Interview]

princeless-feat

With the release of Princeless: The Pirate Princess, creator Jeremy Whitley really started to take his all-ages princess-power series and boost it deep into the consciousness of the comics community. Following Raven, the aforementioned Princess of the High Seas, as she gangs up forces with two other princesses, the third volume of the story was drawn by the team of Rosy Higgins and Ted Brandt in their first ever published work.

That's a hugely impressive feat, especially given that they had to jump straight in on a continuing series after two volumes, and keep pace with a world of dragons, swashbuckling and piracy. They don't have a simple artist-colorist sort of arrangement, either --- both of them alternate back and forth throughout the creative process. With Princeless proving to be one of the breakout books from Action Lab of the last few years (as well as one of our most-recommended comics for kids on this very site), ComicsAlliance spoke to Higgins and Brandt about their artistic process.
