An article released today on Unleash The Fanboy sheds a little more light onto the upcoming official My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic. It is planned on being a 4-part comic that is not sourced in any episode of the show and is slated for release this November. We will get back with more details as they are released.
The article states :
This will be the first of a four-part arc. As we all guessed, the stories will not adapt the show’s episodes. I’m sure hardcore fans with a few dollars to spare are going to want to pick up all six ‘mane’ covers by Andy Price, which will be featured in an issue 1 boxset. Above is Cover A and Cover B put together, unedited and uncut. Applejack and Spike really know how to get their groove on.
