    An Equestria Girls comic!?
    I for one am excited, but I really liked the movie … sans the ending but FiM has a bad hsitory of iffy endings…

    The moment the movie was over I was like “I really hope we get a Equestria Girls comics seires!” a perqual story annual wasn’t quite what I was hoping for but I’ll be buying a copy or 3 in hopes a full on seires.

  • Kameinu

    Aye…really disappointed we ain’t getting a Micro in November and get EQG instead…

    Want something that’d sell and is truly worthy of Andy Price’s god tier art? A Micro of one of ’em popular background ponies or Luna.

  • Aww, the two Cadence and Shining Armor covers are so cute! ;3

  • Carolina A Leo

    Did anyone noticed Diamond Rose on the cover? At this rate, all toy ponies who aren’t in the show, will appear in the comics.

  • Adam

    I hope there’s story that continues on what happen to Sunset Shimmer.
