I ordered two as a safety precaution. I'll probably keep the nicer of the two for my collection and use the other to trade down the road since that variant cover is supposedly sold out.

Someone who knows something about comic books tell me if these are related.

Assuming the comic you posted also deals with an alternative universe storyline I'd assume the MLP cover is indeed a tribute to it.

It's been a while since I posted in this thread. Considering there are now 41(!) issues of MLP comics out, it might be a little daunting to jump in and hope you grabbed a good one. So here's a quick burst of very short reviews for each story arc so far:

Issue 25 just came out, and so did Friends Forever 11. They've announced #28 and Friends Forever #14.

I always forget about this thread. Sa-v I updated the OP, in any case.

Also, it appears that a villain-focused mini series is coming in April. Five issues, each focusing on King Sombra, Chrysalis, Nightmare Moon, Lord Tirek, and the Sirens.

And I forgot to mention:

The Equestria Girls Holiday Special is really, really bad. Like one of the worst MLP comics ever bad. It contradicts Rainbow Rocks, most of the characters are out-of-character, it rehashes Ponyville Confidential except does it worse, and the art is often lazy (literally used cropped screencaps from the movies a few times, among other problems).

The holiday special comic was for many the straw that broke the camel's back when it came to tolerating the antics of the comic's writers and artists.

Some even have begun to theorize that certain writers are writing badly on purpose in order to antagonize the fandom.

I really, really hope the villain comics don't end up being terrible, but I'm not too optimistic. mlp-pcry

It's been a while, so why not another round of short comic reviews?

They are, I just haven't been keeping this thread updated.

This month is the release of Friends Forever #30 (sort of, it released at the end of June) and Friendship is Magic #44.

The new Guardians of Harmony toyline is supposed to be getting its own comic series in the fall.

Just finished reading reflections and oh my it was amazing.
Just one question, does the comics counts as canon?

That's a bit tricky. Some people say they aren't. I consider them "B" canon, and the show "A" canon. Just to explain that, the comics are canon, but if the show and comics contradict each other, the show is canon and the comic (or aspect of the issue) is not. This has already happened a few times.

I just got home and had a big stack of comics waiting for me to read. I'm finding that I'm enjoying the main comics more than the Friends Forever comics.
