Last week, the hotly anticipated MLP: FiM #8 landed at comic stores, with eager readers ready to buy it. Written by Heather Nuhfer, drawn by Amy Mebberson, colored by Heather Breckel, and lettered by Neil Uyetake, it’s the final issue for this creative team before the return of Katie Cook and Andy Price. The conclusion to this arc is something I’ve been waiting for since, well, the conclusion to the last arc of the comics. The long ponyless most of the year has taken its toll, after all, and getting our monthly hit of semi-canonical miniature horses has been a welcome oasis in the desert of new official content. Alas, all good things must come to an end, and it’s time for this arc to conclude. Read our thoughts behind the cut.
The last installment of IDW Publishing’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic series concluded on an epic cliffhanger. Facing down a twisted version of the Element of Generosity, the Mane Six and Princess Luna have to tangle with Nightmare Rarity, the new queen of nightmares. With Heather Nuhfer penning the story, Amy Mebberson crafting the art, Heather Breckel painting the colors, and Neil Uyetake setting the letters, the now-familiar second creative team is ready to show us just what the Nightmare Forces have in store.

It’s that time of the month again—at least, for those of us who weren’t lucky enough to go to Wondercon—and that means a newly printed issue of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! Issue #6 continues the story of the Mane Six tussling with the fearsome Nightmare Forces of the moon. Written by Heather Nuhfer, drawn by Amy Mebberson, colored by Heather Breckel, and lettered by Neil Uyetake, the latest monthly installment of the adventures of the Mane Six is sure to entertain.
Let’s take a look after the cut.
You might have heard a lot from Katie Cook and Andy Price, the creative team behind the first arc of the IDW Publishing mainline MLP comics series. But they’re not the only ones writing long form pony comic stories. While Katie and Andy regroup for issues 9-12, Issues 5-8 are being handled by a second creative team. For this arc, we’re graced with Amy Mebberson and Heather Nuhfer on art and writing, respectively. Heather has kindly agreed to talk to us, and we’ve got a shiny interview just for you!

With The Return of Queen Chrysalis at a close, the mainline Friendship is Magic comic books from IDW Publishing are at a crossroads. With Andy Price and Katie Cook back at the proverbial (and literal) drawing boards to work on the next set of stories starting at issue #9, we’ve got a new team of challengers to tackle our heroines. The new arc is helmed by a second creative team that has been flying a bit under the radar. Penned by Heather Nuhfer and drawn by Amy Mebberson, the two new members are joined by regulars Heather Breckel and Neil Uyetake on coloring and letters, respectively. How will this new creative team handle the subject of our model miniature horses?
