I know alot of people are shitting on Shadowlock due to his design and name and calling him an "Edgy OC", but I like his look and feel.

The only thing I'm upset about for the upcoming arc is the cliched "The others are useless/captured, time for a TSPH to save the day" for the third book's climax.

And While, yes, I could be surprised, they tend to not do surprises: The glimmer arc ended pretty much 100% the way it sounded like it was going to end.


>>36823348
On another note, REALLY looking forward to this one; The last rarity/Trixie was GOLD, and this one has potential too.
The two of them are such diva's that they really bounce off each other well.

Also, never noticed before, but her green Magic color unintentionally makes her look evil, since that green color is generally used for "Evil" magic, like chrysalis or the Inspiration manifestation book :p

Sorry, I know you're quoting, but I can't resist posting this image for that.

So the ending is about spike going godzilla?
not surprised really, he WAS the giant toy of the toyline after all :p

They need to pick up the speed at which they're doing this though, the next wave will be out before they know it and they've barely started on the First waves books XD

That being said, they DID change the GOH trademark recently to definitely include "Ongoing animated television series"

Okay. WOW. That cover is fucking BEAUTIFUL.


On the note of the Comic: Fosgit. Dropped.
Angel bunny: Also dropped. but he at least deserves this artist.

on the plus side, this looks to be a very light hearted comic, so hopefully fosgit will fit better, especially since they're not ponies, they're animals.

>An earth pony gets to do something AWESOME

Okay, I'm intrigued. Looking forward to this arc. Really interested in seeing what we get going down!
Also interested in just how "Strong" the strongest earth pony in legend is :p
(for comparison of Mud ponies to their unicorn overlords like twilight/Sunset/starlight)

that being said, kind of surprised. I thought all those ponies on that cover were going to be the ponies from hearth's warming eve (Clover the clever, Smart cookie, commander hurricane, ect.) but it looks like that's not smart cookie there, its Rock hoof.

So I'm wondering if that Green haired one is going to be clover the clever after all.

Just read the new one. Glad we got some new writers on board, because I think he really managed to nail this one, and am VERY happily surprised by this one.


It starts out pretty slowly, and I think the first 6 pages are the weakest part; the "SLUMBER PARTY!" and pinkie dream joke were pretty forced, and it kind of dragged at the start.

However, once they made it to the town, everything clicked. The jokes and sight gags started working, there was alot of cute characterization, and everyone felt in character and useful/funny (Loved Fluttershy's hoof wrestling thing XD).


I know alot of people are yelling that the villain is super edgy, but he's honestly not that edgy or hardcore and works surprisingly well. He seems pretty subdued, and i like his angle/plot.

Getting rid of the knowledge of the weaknesses of certain beings while also having the ability to summon magical constructs of them from books is a good plan, like erasing the knowledge of how to kill vampires if you can summon them. Reminds me of in Naruto how they needed knowledge of certain zombie characters to beat them and how unbeatable they were without that knowledge.


I'm actually betting this guy is going to be the S7 villain and the third issue will end with him WINNING by erasing the mane six's knowledge of him somehow given his "erase memories via books" angle, to avoid continiuity issues, so it'll be a prequel of sorts.


9/10, looking forward to issue 2 (Though not so much issue 3 due to the "ITS ALL UP TO TWILIGHT" bit.

to be honest, not feeling it.

Far more excited for the upcoming GOH one. Betting they explain all the random wargrear and armor from the toys as actually being enchanted weapons stored beneath the castle.

it would be a good way to try and shill the toys as not just being random pieces of metal but Special "Artifacts".

Good comic. Started out GREAT with the first three, then it crashed and burned though :(

RD's comic, the cheese sandwich comic and the Shining armor one were great. Good characterization, some nice jokes, and good art.

Unfortunately, Twilight's comic really flubbed things up. Apart from a few Lyrabon jokes, it just felt really forced, and phoned in. I LIKE the idea of the Castle being a constantly morphing sapient being that creates new rooms according to the needs of its inhabitants (And fits with the canon of the Starlight/twilight chapter book), but DANG was this done poorly.

the "lock" to open the door was absurd and situational (GOOD THING LYRA AND BON BON WERE THERE!), and the armor... Dangit price, just, that was bad :(

I Like the idea of the castle unlocking and bestowing artifacts on the six as a group for passing trials and growing as individuals, but this was done poorly.

If only they had more comics to do it in, this would have made a great 3 issue arc (Find the room, undergo a trial, break out the armor).



The Wonderbolt arc is dragged down by fosgitt's art, and sadly isn't anything memorable, apart from a couple good jokes (like the surprise one).


The finale is rushed as can be and REALLY should have been a two issue one: Break out the armor and grow spike giant in the first one, then devote an entire second comic to the seven fighting off the changelings (Chryssy and twilight can solo each other while spike and the other 5 handle the army, ect.)


Plus, Finding it HILARIOUS how Fosgitt literally copied Equestria prevails Art designs XD
Like, he picked a GOOD one to use, but still, he should at least aknowledge Equestria prevails :p (He'd probably just be happy and flattered).

hope Fosgitt answers my tweet asking about it :p

They seem to be trying to change things up to get sales via newness lately, rather than continual things (see the mysteries ones now).
Which is sad, as I really think the LOM comic arc was one of the best we've had in a LOOOONG time.
