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. In the second arc, things are finally starting to get a little weird. Specifically, Rarity has been kidnapped and taken to the moon by evil forces, leaving her friends (and their royal princess pals) the task of rescuing her. So naturally, the question on everyone's mind is just how are these ponies supposed to get to the moon?

By throwing a rope around it and dragging it out of the sky so they can head up on a tightrope, of course. Check out a seven-page preview below to see exactly how they do it!

While Rarity's peril is still the focus of the current story, one assumes that the third arc will feature Ponyville dealing with the horrifying ramifications of, you know, gravity. Here's the official solicitation for this issue:
