Last weekend was the Cincinnati Comic Expo and in attendance was Katie Cook (and I do believe her partner in crime Andy Price). A pair of reporters from The Out Housers (www.theouthousers.com) got a chance to sit down with Katie and ask a few questions about the up coming MLP:FiM comic series by IDW.
Katie: Our goal is to make a good all ages – NOT JUST LITTLE GIRLS – book. Both Andy and I are fans of the show and we want to make a good comic for this property that we love.
Everyone is expecting this comic book to fail. The people who hate MLP view this as a cash grab (really, what comic isn’t?) and fans of the show think it will “suck and only be for little girls.” We want to make a comic that we are proud of that respects the show. This is all very strange because I have been told by multiple shops that MLP #1 is the most requested pre-order they have had in a long time.
Working with IDW has been pretty easy. We have the book set up to be 4 issue arcs where we hope to add some depth to characters and stories that have been highlighted in the cartoon.
