The latest IDW Publishing solicitations are out, and that means we’ve got info for the next set of upcoming books. With MLP #9, Andy Price and Katie Cook return on art and writing for the next four issues, which will be split into two double-issue stories.
Meanwhile, the last in the Mane Six Micro Series is revealed, and it’s the most dependable and loyal of ponies: Applejack! Bobby Curnow, editor of the series, has written this issue himself! Brenda Hickley [Ed. note: I believe this is a misspelling, as Brenda Hickey is an accomplished comics artist] provides the art.
Both of these comics are expected to bow in July.
For synopses, check behind the cut.
