I imagine that most people read articles about comic book sales in a darkened room, in a enclosed and private space – perhaps curtained off – so nobody can see their shame. But comics sales aren’t just for predicting cancellations – in the case of IDW’s forthcoming My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the sales are a way to celebrate the superiority of ponies to everything else.
Isn’t it great when the comic book industry do something which is perfect? IDW have just announced that they will be publishing a new ‘My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic’ series, written by Katie Cook and drawn by Andy Price. Bronies (and… fonies?) of the world, celebrate! Likely by eating a delicious sugarlump or two before going out into the yard for a bit.
The series will start in November. In lieu of any artwork from the announced series, here’s a pony drawn by Tony Harris being ridden by a zombie drawn by Cook.
Extra! If you want an idea of what Price’s art is like, you can find more of his work on his DeviantArt account. Stuff like this:
