My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1 “The Positive Review”

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1 Subscription Variant by Jill Thompson

When I pick up comics from my local store, the My Little Pony comic is the best comic I read out of the 17 other titles I pick up during the month. Let’s start off with issue #1 of the horror comic.

No, that is not a typo. The first four issues of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic pays homage to horror stories, starting with Invasion of the Body Snatchers. You know, for kids!

Comic Review Editorial: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1

2

I’m sure that many of you, like me, were super-ultra hyped about the MLP Comic when it first came out. Some of you may still feel that way, but let me tell you now, this will not be a positive review. Do not take it personally. (This counts as a disclaimer, right?) There are a few good things the comic does and many bad things; I will be focused on the bad. If you want to hear praise on the comic, listen to what Screenplay has to say. You’ll soon realize that I think about the comic itself, and the narrative, way too much.

You can say you’ve been warned.
Oh, and I guess there are spoilers too, if by some chance you haven’t got around to reading comic 1 yet.

General comments:
I have to say that the art style was interesting, if nothing else. It was obviously very high-quality and very well done. The only beef I have with it is that it was sort of harsh. More on that past the cut.

The story isn’t bad, per se, it’s just unbelievably fast. Pacing, where art thou?

By far the worst part of the comic is that the characters–vibrant, interesting, and dynamic in the show–become absolutely one sided with little-to-no account given to their deeper selves.

If you would be so kind as to “Read More”, I will gladly show you what I mean. You know, by writing all over the comic.
