My Little Pony - The Comic Adventures!

Stuttgart, July 15th, 2013


The small, cute and very colourful horses of My Little Pony are every little girl’s dream. The cartoon - airing on Nickelodeon, based upon Hasbro’s My Little Pony-toyline - is enormously popular, attracting fans of all ages. For these fans, Panini will publish the My Little Pony - Friendship is Magic comics from October 2013 onwards.


Issue #1 of the series will be released on October 8th. It contains a story in four parts, in which the unicorn Twilight Sparkle must save the citizens of Ponyville from clutches of the evil Queen Chrysalis.


The story - written by Katie Cook and drawn by Andy Price - has a more mature outlook than the television show, but does not betray its spirit.


When issue #1 of the comic series was released in the US in 2012, it had over 100,000 pre-orders and became the best-selling comic of the month. Furthermore, the series has remained high in the US comic charts since its release - one of the few non-Marvel or non-DC series to do so!

Time will tell if the magical pony tales will be as successful in Germany as they have been in the States. Dedicated MLP fans can also look forward to two variant covers of the first issue (priced at € 9.99). A version limited to 333 pieces (for € 20) and an exclusive version limited to 55 pieces (for € 49) will be available at the Comic Action (October 24th to 27th) in Essen.


So....Yay for Germany (and i hope soon to follow more parts of europe)i guess :D

That's good. I am tempted to get the TPB for the Micro Series solely for the cover >.<

By the way, ComiXology is having a pony comic sale at the moment, 99 cents per issue. If you haven't picked up any of them before, now is a cheap time to do so.

Urgh...I just found a place where i could get the printed version of the micro without outrageous delivery cost...


On one hand buying them printed would be a bit too much right at the moment as unexpected expense,while the .99x6$ would be much more easy to let go (€/$ changes included i'd probably pay less for 6 digital than for one printed +delivery )

On the other hand,i'm not really into digital comics (yes,i have a kindle but standard-version,so not really suited for color comics)


Urgh...

I think the comics would look a lot better in an ipad with retina display, but i can't complain since work gave me an ipad2 and that's what I use to read the digital comics (and i do have the physical issues) =P

Yeah. Lot of Sparity shipping -- but the writing as a whole seemed pretty weak at times.

It's like the chrysalis arc, pretty good writing the first 3 issues and the last one was a bit of a letdown.

The Micro-series... Rarity was the best one. Fluttershy had the weakest writing.

The main problem with the second arc is that the basic idea of moon-creatures and evil-power-corrupting-luna seems a bit too much "out of nowhere"

But that aside it's not that bad

Yeah, giant space flea out of nowhere...

it woulda been better if it was the nightmare side of luna just roaming the moon... and then possessing rarity, rather than something else.

although celestia did mention there was something that influenced luna into becoming nightmare moon in the first place.
