I have MLP icons, but yet I never did a single entry on any of the My Little Pony comics out there? Let's change that. Here's my personal favorite comic from all of the series out there.

Since a bunch of people here are probably going to go with Gotham, I thought I'd tap another one of my fandom interests for this post...

I'm not particularly sure of when I got into My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - all I recall is that it was somewhere between the end of Season 3 and the beginning of Season 4. Animation outlets wouldn't shut up about it, all my friends on the 'net were into it, blah blah blah. Long story short - watched it, thought it was alright, read some of the fanfic, started liking the world of Equestria a whole lot more.

Let's get something clear here: this show isn't the second coming of Batman: The Animated Series (which, in any case, would be Gargoyles), but it's got potential. At least, more potential than the previous generations of My Little Pony did. The villains aren't allowed to really cut loose, since it's a kid's show and everything (and a lot of the more adventure-centric stories have seriously bad plot holes), but the writing staff of both the show and the tie-in comics managed to infuse their villains with enough personality and unique character designs to make up for it.

MLP: FIM is the kind of series where the line between "villain" and "jerk" tends to become rather blurry, and I have neither the patience nor the space here to list all of the characters who belong in both categories, so I think I'll go with the ones that grabbed my imagination the most.

(Sidenote: I like to imagine that there can, in fact, be an in-universe situation where all of these chumps will happily hang out together.)

Four legs bad, two legs badder! )

Well, it's not QUITE fan art, it was some page samples that Andy Price (current artist on MLP:FIM, and all round fun artist and nice guy (Though I may be biased) did many years ago for his portfolio... and has just shared on his DeviantArt account.

C'mon, tell me you wouldn't want to read - 'Star Trek vs Aliens'! )

EDIT - That what I get for leaving this unposted while I am out all day.
I had low expectations for the My Little Pony comics series. That is why issue #1 not only impressed me, it blew me away. I bought 6 six copies just to give to people. On my rare journey to the comic books store, I tired to explain to it patrons the wonders of the ponies here. I encouraged pony fans to not fear the comics, but embraced them.

Then issue two happened. I shouldn't have let my hopes get so high.
Let's look at what is good here )

I know I'm not the only one here who likes My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, nor the only one who has been thoroughly enjoying the IDW comic book by Katie Cook and Andy Price with its wacky-yet-kinda-creepy horror-comedy tone. There was some talk about the comic here before and after #1 was released... but since, as far as I can see, nobody's been talking about issues #2 or #3, I figured I'd try to do something about it. Because these comics deserve recognition.

So here are a few scans (two full pages, one three-quarter page and three page snippets, adding up to what I'd roughly estimate as three-and-a-half page) from the newest issue, #3, the penultimate issue in the Return of Queen Chrysalis storyline, for the most part centered around our villain-of-the-story, Queen Chrysalis. Who still manages to be a good deal creepier in the comic than she was in the cartoon.

Creepy Changelings and Cute Citizens of Vuvy-Dovey Land behind the cut! )

What do you mean you haven't bought the My Little Pony comic yet? Get to itunes or Comixology right now! You don't like ponies? Oh, let us fix that.

Last night I made a small post offering some small bit of Pinkie Pie goodness from #1, but there is so much more. Every page has soothing to offer. From funny jokes and nods to brony fandom to fantastic art. This comic is full of fan candy. And it has an insane number of covers. I pulled the 6 of the regular covers off the net. I admit. I bought four copies to get different covers. One is a gift, least that's why I bought it.

Last night's post, didn't really have any spoilers, but this one will ruin the end for you. Consider yourself warned. Things are getting weird in Ponyville....

This came from a place of love, you can tell. )

Two of my favourite artists,  Andy Price (on art) and Katie Cook (on writing, though she's a fine artists in her own right... see icon)  have a regular gig in the form of the comic version of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" (Not something I have been able to get into, but I know it's popular)

Wordless, one page preview )

...according to current DC lore, it's the birthday of Dick Grayson! ("Robin" being his mothers pet name for him, since he arrived on the first day of Spring.... That makes more sense when you're American, as your robins are associated with Spring, whereas in Europe they're associated with Christmas and winter.

But first, a word from our stalker... SPONSOR

So with that recommendation... here is a summation of Dick's pre-Crisis origin as shown in the first attempt to summarise a complete history of Batman and his cast - "The Untold Legend of the Batman" from 1980, in this case issue 2 (Five pages from a 21 page story)

Jim Aparo beneath... and that's a GOOD thing )

Some other fols take on m'boy... )

And some fun fanart from DA... )

As the sun sets (or rises depending on time difference) on scans_daily's "Dude in Distress Week" (and thank you to the mods for it and to everyone who contributed such great issues), I thought I'd make a couple of posts featuring my favourites... First post will be some commissions, the second post will be some classic moments from the past, and the third will be my nomination for perfect "Dude in Distress" issue. And yes, I should probably apologise in advance for the sheer Robin-centricity of them, but frankly you should know me better by now! :D If cute guys in pixie boots aren't you're thing, please feel free to skip them all.

Like comics... but not! )

it's that I can give credit where credit is due. I'm not a fan of much of Devin Grayson's output, but she can write a darn good character scene, Jim Lee tends to leave me unimpressed, but he can draw a darn pretty Dynamic Duo from time to time.

And so, in the interests of fairness and honesty I have to say that I liked this inteview up at newsarama

In which Judd Winick speaks about his forthcoming arc on Batman and Robin.... )
