    Four stories. Four fabulous stories. One made me cry (because I'm pathetic and read it while being a bit drugged), and all of them made me laugh. There were Star Trek, Harry Potter, Lord of the Ring, and so many more geek references. It was fantastic. I loved that two of the stories were about non-main characters. Fluttershy is my favourite, but unfortunately she wasn't in most of the stories. Even without her, I loved them. MLP makes me smile, and this book is great. Kids will love it because t

Fluttershy is my favourite, but unfortunately she wasn't in most of the stories. Even without her, I loved them. MLP makes me smile, and this book is great. Kids will love it because the stories are cute, but the adult fans will appreciate this the most. You can tell that the second story was pretty much written for us. Can't wait to purchase this for myself!

    Another adorable spin-off comic series! This one is similar to the micro-series in that each individual story focuses on specific characters, but in this series, each comic focus on a (perhaps-unlikely) pair of two miscellaneous characters. This makes for a lot of opportunities to play differing personalities off of each other. Another great read in the MLP universe.

    This was super cute. I didn't care for the first story, but I adored the last story. It was nice to see new character pairings - namely, Princess Celestial and Spike, and Twilight with her brother Shining Armour. I also thought it was cute putting the cutie mark crusaders with Discord in their search for cutie marks.

    All in all, another successful graphic novel of MLP. I definitely like the change

    All in all, another successful graphic novel of MLP. I definitely like the change into stories with a few characters each, instead of all characters crammed in. It's a lot more interesting that way.

    I'd definitely recommend this to all fans (of all ages!) of the MLP show.

    It's no secret that I really enjoy My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic more than I probably should and more than I should probably admit. I get really excited when I stumble across a new comic book or see that a new season has been put on Netflix (since I can never figure out when new episodes come on television). And this comic book really did not disappoint me!

    It's no secret that I really enjoy My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic more than I probably should and more than I should probably admit. I get really excited when I stumble across a new comic book or see that a new season has been put on Netflix (since I can never figure out when new episodes come on television). And this comic book really did not disappoint me!

    The stories are very short - about 20 pages a piece - and don't really have any overwhelming lessons about friendship. They're short and sweet, and give us a little glimpse into the lives of the ponies. Plus we get to see some new ponies and visit old friends! It's basically just a really good time all around.

    I especially enjoyed all of the pop culture references. There are subtle references (especially in the story with the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Discord) and more blatant ones (the plumbers at the palace in the Crystal Empire are my favorite!) and all of them are just as magical and fantastic as I hoped they would be. I think that's part of the reason I love MLP:FIM so much. Well, the pop culture references and the terrible puns.

    I would totally recommend this comic to anyone who has enjoyed previous My Little Pony comics or the television show. These comics are excellent for young kids just getting into comic books, especially with the vibrant colors, and for those adults who just need a little bit of an escape from the real world every so often. I am so glad that these comics are doing well, and I can't wait to read more of them! 4/5

    ***I received an e-galley of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

    Overall, I enjoyed this collection of the first four comics in IDW's new My Little Pony comic series. I have read several of my daughter's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics. And I think that this is another collection that we will need to buy and read. She will love these stories. And I liked the illustrations.

    Overall, I enjoyed this collection of the first four comics in IDW's new My Little Pony comic series. I have read several of my daughter's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics. And I think that this is another collection that we will need to buy and read. She will love these stories. And I liked the illustrations.

    Tale #1:

    Story one was a fun silly story involving mostly Pinkie-Pie and Applejack entering a baking contest. Although Applejack entered by accident. This one focuses on the silly things that happened during the contest. But it also was about Applejack being mistaken as a different pony, and that pony kept trying to fix it but was ultimately unable to. I think that is tale shows that winning can be fun, but that it isn't everything.

    Out of the four stories it was the one that I enjoyed the least.

    Tale #2:

    I liked this story a lot. It focused on the Cutie Mark Crusaders (the little ponies that don't have cutie marks yet). I think the main reason I liked this story was because it was full of little references to different things. And I found those references to be funny. This tale was cute and entertaining. And I liked the moral of the story.

    Tale #3:

    I really enjoyed this tale and the moral taken from this one as well. I found this one to be full of action and adventure. Spike and Princess Celestia travel to get a piece needed for a present. I enjoyed having a story that really focused on Spike as more than just a side-kick character.

    Tale #4:

    Another fun tale. This one focuses on Twilight Sparkle and her brother. Something fishy is happening in the palace and Twilight Sparkle takes it upon herself to find out what is happening and solve the mystery. I liked the sister-brother relationship shown in this tale. And I loved the pony reference to the Mario Brothers. Another cute and entertaining tale.

    My Recommendation:

    If you are a fan of the other My Little Pony comics, or have a child that enjoys reading these comics, then I highly recommend reading this new comic series. It has the characters that we already know and love. And is full of fun and entertaining adventures. I know my daughter will love it.

    I always love reading these My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics. They compile a few different short stories that focus on just a few characters. In this volume, the first story is a friendly lesson about competition when Pinkie Pie enters a Cooking Contest.

    I always love reading these My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics. They compile a few different short stories that focus on just a few characters. In this volume, the first story is a friendly lesson about competition when Pinkie Pie enters a Cooking Contest.

    The Cutie Mark Crusaders are back and I don't know what I'm going to do when they finally earn their marks because their adventures trying to discover themselves and their talents are so much fun. This story shows them interacting with Discord. I loved the Star Trek references in this one. Discord is definitely a Q like character.

    My favorite unusual pairing in this volume is in the third story. Spike looks for a birthday present for Twilight with the aid of Princess Celestia herself.

    In the last story, Twilight visits her Big Brother Best Friend Forever, Shining Armor. They reconnect over their childhood love of monster tracking. The Mario Bros. reference in this one is so epic! The plumbers have the best cutie marks.

    This volume is another great collection of short comics. Like the other My Little Pony comic books, this is a great gateway for young fans to get into comic books and reading. I give this volume a 4/5.

    Greatly enjoyed the fun stories and cute art of this series! Reread it with my 3 year old daughter and she loooved it, especially the part with Princess Celestia. (Nightmare Moon is her favorite pony, but alas she only showed up on some cover art.) My favorite was the story with Discord...I'd forgotten about him completely, but he is AMAZING. Like a goat dragon zebra pony with crazy eyes and mismatched chicken/bear hands. It reminds me of an awesome Harry Potter parody fanfic I read where Voldem

Like a goat dragon zebra pony with crazy eyes and mismatched chicken/bear hands. It reminds me of an awesome Harry Potter parody fanfic I read where Voldemort kept showing up as the harmless groundskeeper-in-disguise of Hogwarts and every time his description had a new (and sometimes contradictory) freaky detail like forked tongue, goat feet, a snake tail, horns, etc. Hilarious! Definitely looking forward to reading more MLP!

    It is time for 4 stories about our pony girls! From baking to ghosts.

    I had to read this one for a copycat challenge in one of my groups. I have always been a bit curious about MLP, though never made the step to actually try it out. I have to say that after reading this I may just not read the comics, but instead check out the tv series and see if that works out better.

    I had to read this one for a copycat challenge in one of my groups. I have always been a bit curious about MLP, though never made the step to actually try it out. I have to say that after reading this I may just not read the comics, but instead check out the tv series and see if that works out better.

    Yes, I had fun reading this one, but I had expected more story, more connectivity, instead I got 4 different stories with various characters. There is no real introduction, you are just thrown into the MLP world. You are expected to know all of them it seems. I would rather have had one introductory story, and then I may have enjoyed the other stories more.

    Out of the 4 stories the last one was the best one for me. Followed by the first one. I didn't quite like Spike's story (though I did like the queen/princess pony), and Discord's story was so-so, I didn't quite like Discord that much, he was quite annoying. But I did like the ending, so this one is on the 3rd place and not on the last one.

    I really liked the last one as I loved Twilight Sparkle instantly + the ghost story was fun, exciting, and I just wanted to know more. What was lurking in the castle? Would Twilight Sparkle and her brother get the chance to band up again like they did back in the past? And also it featured books, so many books! How can I resist a monster/ghost that loves books?

    The art was a bit of a mixed bag. There are quite a few illustrators working on the story, and you really noticed the difference between the stories. Still I love the designs of the ponies, I love how colour and fun they are. I have to say that I like them more in the pony-form (I also read the annual for this series and there the girls were human (though still in their pony colours)).

    All in all, I did enjoy reading these stories and I quite like the girls (Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie are just the best). But I am not sure if I will continue reading these comics, I think maybe the randomness works better animated.

    Going into this, I was prepared to dislike it as an affront to the rounder, fatter, plainer ponies of my youth, but, even with the sleeker, too-huge-anime-eyed, tarted-up revamped equines, there was a lot to like about this -- it's clever, it's humorous, and it's pretty good. (Also, Jeremy Whitley of Princeless wrote one of the stories, and he knows how to write compelling, thoughtful stories with empowered, smart characters, so that boded well for me as a reader!)

There were a few times the comics seemed to break from the show (I can't imagine Applejack being okay with pretending to be somebody else during a competition- even if it were an accident, her element is literally honesty). I liked some of the artwork more than others. Carla Speed McNeil's artwork is closest to that of the show while Amy Mebberson's is very different. I preferred the art that represented the ponies seen in the show.

    All of the stories are entertaining and fun. Great for fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
