A few days ago, we posted a notice about the bad news that the first MLP: Friendship is Magic comic would be delayed towards the end of November due to demand. Well, here’s a data point for that amount of demand—according to Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool, over 90,000 copies (including the box sets) have been preordered.
This is an incredible amount, and given this, the delay for production reasons is entirely warranted. Printing 90,000 books is no easy feat, especially with the variants. Hopefully this level of production will continue and we’ll get many more comics in the future.
MLP Issue 1 is due for release on November 28th, 2012. ■
