Fellow pony fans and what the Internet has dubbed ‘bronies,’ (I’m one of them) our favorite show on the Hub is coming to the comic world this November courtesy of IDW themselves. Katie Cook (best known for writing and drawing the web-comic Gronk) will be writing, with interior art by Andy Price. Miss Cook didn’t give away much details about the series, but offered some things that will get the fans excited with anticipation.
“I guess I can say that we start to see some ponies acting very strange.”
On the possibility of new characters, she said that:
“there will be some surprises, but our focus is really on the current ‘Mane 6.’”
Fans worried about whether or not the comic will have depth like the show needn’t worry:
“I am writing the book that, as a Pony fan and an all-ages writer, I would want to read. I don’t want a story about how Fluttershy started a fluffy bunny sanctuary — I want stories and depth, while still being something a younger kid will get engrossed in.”
If the comic can capture the smart writing and fun of the show, this could very well be the best all-ages title out there.
