The My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic comic book series from IDW Publishing, written by Katie Cook and illustrated by Andy Price will be coming out this November in-stores and online. The synopsis for Issue #1 of the four-part story has been released:
Welcome to Ponyville, home of Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, and all your other favorite Ponies! Something’s not right in the town though, as some of the inhabitants are acting very, very strange! It’s up to the Mane Six to find the source of the weirdness before it’s too late!
The story of the comic books will not duplicate the stories of the show.
The first issue will have six standard covers drawn by Andy Price featuring one pony each and an extra cover designed by Jill Thompson will be available exclusively in-store. A second, rarer guest artist cover will be drawn by Stephanie Buscema.
A box set (pictured up top) featuring all of the ‘mane six’ covers of Issue #1 by Andy Price will be available for purchase as well.
Since we posted this news images of the covers have surfaced online. The six covers being created by Andy Price will line up when placed side by side to form one interlocking scene. Head below to see the pictures:
