Next, is the possible conclusion to the micro-series, finishing with Applejack’s story.


My Little Pony: Mane 6 Micro-Series #6 (of 6): APPLEJACK
Bobby Curnow (w) • Brenda Hickley (a) • Amy Mebberson (c)
It’s almost Hearth’s Warming Eve, and the Apple family is busy at work preparing an array of tasty apple treats for all of Ponyville. But when a mysterious creature starts ruining their crop, Applejack sets out to find out who’s behind this tomfoolery! Who, or what, is the SASS SQUASH??
*2 regular covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio

*Variant Covers:
Sabrina Alberghetti variant cover!

There are two interesting things of note here. For one, Bobby Curnow, the writer for issue #6, is also the editor not only for the My Little Pony comics, but all of the IDW solicitations. It will be an interesting read to see how well he writes for the Apple Family.

Second, depending on sales, according to Katie Cook when at Big Apple Ponycon in March, the series may actually continue past the 6 issue mark and give a focus to the secondary characters such as the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
