My Little Pony Friendship is Magic

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.

‘My Little Pony Microseries’ #9 Teaches Children A Harsh Lesson About Disappointment

My Little Pony Microseries #9, IDW

I was born just a little too late to be part of that generation that was continually burned by the misleading promises you'd get from the ads in comic books, and to be honest, I've always been a little saddened by that. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I want to be ripped off, but for decades, the disappointment that came from cardboard X-Ray Specs and $2.98 nuclear submarines was an important part of the medium. Also, I've always been curious about the secrets of dynamic tension.

Fortunately for me, I can live out the thrill of disappointment through a purple cartoon dragon that lives in a tree that is also a library with a pony (also purple) in this week's My Little Pony Microseries #9! The story, focusing on Spike and brought to you by Rob Anderson and Agnes Garbowska, finds Twilight Sparkle's #1 assistant attempting to get a pet of his own by sending off for sea monkeys, with hilarity to ensue upon delivery. Check out a preview below!

Sunset Shimmer Gets The Spotlight In ‘My Little Pony 2013 Annual—Equestria Girls’ [Preview]

My Little Pony Annual 2013 Comic Equestria Girls Preview
IDW

If you weren't able to snag Kaite Cook and Andy Price's San Diego Comic-Con exclusive My Little Pony story this past summer, IDW's My Little Pony 2013 Annual—Spotlight should cure what ails you. The reprinted tale is only part of the appeal for fans, however, as Ted Anderson and Tony Fleecs are expanding The Hub's animated My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic world with a prequel story that ties into the recent Equestria Girls movie, where the famous ponies live as teenage humans in another realm. IDW's provided CA with a first-look, which you can check out after the cut.

‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’ #11 Goes Back To High School For Movie Parodies And D&D [Preview]

MLP00

What with most of their appearances on the show thus far involving replacement by magical villains and sinister mind control, we don't know a whole lot about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic's Shining Armor and Princess Cadance. Sure, we know that he's Twilight Sparkle's brother and she's Twilight Sparkle's old babysitter, because we all have a complex Twilight Sparkle Family Tree diagram up on our walls that we add to as needed (it's not just me, right?), but beyond that, nothing. Until now!

Big Macintosh Is On A Quest For The Mysterious And Feared Gazebo In ‘My Little Pony’ #10

MLP00

Like many of you, I used to wonder what friendship could be. This, I think, is a common problem among people who read comics, since we're usually told that friendship involves rescuing someone from a crashing helicopter or dressing in bright colors to distract a murder clown, and these just aren't situations that come up too often in real life.

Fortunately, thanks to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, we now have a much better example to follow. Sometimes, for instance, friendship involves building a gazebo, which is exactly what Big Macintosh is up to in the current arc by Katie Cook and Andy Price. Sadly, it's not that easy. Check out a preview of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic #10 after the jump (plus an awesome Justice League #1-inspired cover featuring the show's "background ponies") to find out why!

The Cutie Mark Crusaders Meddle With Forces They Do Not Understand (Again) In ‘My Little Pony Micro-Series’ #7

MLP00

Maybe the weirdest part of my job is that I am routinely called upon to write the phrase "cutie mark" in a professional capacity. Take this week, for instance, when the new issue of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Micro-Series puts the focus on everyone's favorite gang of junior Equestrians, the Cutie Mark Crusaders! They're up to their usual antics of trying to find out what destiny awaits them when they grow up, but this time, they have made a new friend: A amorphous, gibbering horror that could be anything -- or everything!

Or maybe it's supposed to be cute. Click past the jump to see for yourself.

While the full cast of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic have been up to Moon-based shenanigans over in their ongoing series, they're also galloping through solo adventures in the pages of the My Little Pony Micro-Series. It's been a series of one-shot adventures where Twilight Sparkle has dealt with an agoraphobic novelist, Rainbow Dash has slugged it out with weather goblins, and now, it's Pinkie Pie's turn.
