To be sincere? It felt completely hollow and padded.
The only positive part was Pencils' art and nothing else, but that's Anderson's writing for you.

Hmm, not as good as I was hoping. I was kind of hoping for a "Celestia has to take care of filly-ized mane six" kind of plot; The art is INCREDIBLE and its really cute seeing them like this, but the overall plot is a bit of a letdown.

8.5/10 for it, all of it almost completely from the art.

>>33428921
Hasn't this been leaked already?

Based on what I found in the Sunset thread, different people get different preview scenes when they're logged in. Parts of it are up, but not the whole thing.

Man, talking about wasted potential. Oh well, I'm still going to purchase this issue to support Pencils and I hope someday they finally give him a non shit writer to work with.
>>
>>33428915

4/10 The only thing that makes it worth reading is Pencil's art. Such a shame to waste a time-travel story on 20 pages of the lesson from the first episode.

My only two takeaways from this are:
>Hey those cat people look pretty cool
and
>What the hell, Spike is 20 years old.
>>
>>33428816
My elder sister calls me big brother, don't think too hard about this.

It's amazing how you can spend 25 pages of a comic and have no conflict at all.

To be honest this just was 25 pages of pencils fanart. The history would be a cool 2 part comfy episode(like S1 season finale) of the season 4/5 if we remove the cats but the plot was waste in this comic

Didn't the official summary say they go back 20 years in the past?

Pencils/10 and unfortunately he seems to be taking expressions and body language inspiration from seasons 5-8 which isn't good.
The hoof gesticulating is fine though, they don't bend in a goofy way like human arms.
At least Anderson segmented them into 2 groups, 20 pages isn't much, but he didn't do jackshit for 20 pages, (outside of Pencils' visual energy), what he did there could have been accomplished in 4 pages. 20 pages is like 5 minutes worth of real-time content, but content wise there's only 10% happening compared to stuff like Dexter's Lab and PPG which condense a shit ton of content in 5-8 minutes.

I especially dislike the dialogue and how Pencils is half forced to cater the expressions and body poses to the dialogue. Seems like the comic book is 95% dialogue and unfortunately this is some illiterate fucking sentence structuring and some poor dialogue exchanges.
Factually you could salvage a good portion of this comic if you got someone literate to write some interesting charming interactions. It won't save the shitty story, but it will become Faust-tier level of filler, as in charming and eloquent, Faust used to make sitting through filler a pleasure. (like every good writer for children's cartoons or tv series based on dialogue)

Ugh IDW once again promises to "expand on the original story left behind" but fails to deliver. This was not the Chronicles part 2 I wanted since S1.
The fillies interact, but mediocre, and only for like 20% of the comic(4 pages). Which is a lot for IDW, the asshats who advertise something on the cover and deliver another.
>>
>>33428915
A complete waste of a time travel story. Dull and forgettable. Art was nice.
>>
>>33429385
AND AS USUAL Pencils' artwork is watered down whenever he works with IDW the talent suckers. Especially because of the horrid color artist/shading artist which has been sucking the soul out of every mlp comic since day 1.
Again someone could fix this, just like the dialogue.

But with all that talent we might as well write a new comic book.

EH for something with such interesting idea as time travel, this one is BORING AS FUCK. It almost feels like a recap of previous seasons. Nothing interesting going on, no AJ seeing her parents, no warning baout villains, nothing touching, nothing of value. And it ends with basically retconning itself from the comic series as well. What a fucking dissapointment. Its 6/10 just for the art.

I honestly couldn't care less about it.

>>33428915
I quite enjoyed it, but I have to admit that the plot was kinda meh. Not that it was bad either, it was just nothing, it felt like the comic equivalent of a clip show. I guess that was kinda the idea, all the IDW 20 thing is just a celebratory event, but at the end it's a bit disappointing wasting a time travel plot on something like this.
The art was definitely the best part of it, and it's indubitably what saved the comic. Waiting for the HQ rip to crop some panels.

>>33428918
Speaking of celebrations, it would have been funny if today's comic had come out at the same time as this. Anderson's idea of celebrating an event just by having the ponies standing there would look like a masterpiece compared to Cook's massive ego celebrating 75 issues by pretending that she's the best thing to ever happen to this franchise. I'm glad we're getting another Nightmare Knights next month and there's something to look forward to, because this comic is going to be such a massive trainwreck that it'll even make season 8 look good by comparison.

Anyway, thank you as usual for storytiming the comics, OP. You don't get the recognition you deserve.

Aw, just now I realize that the colorist probably fucked up that panel. it's pretty obvious that that was supposed to be Dash's wing.

>>33428813
Do we have sentient bears now? Or they just roar and don't talk, but are actually good at manestyling?
>>33428817
Her styling is so bad, she had to cut her tail, lol. Also shipping time. But she is probably older.
>>33428825
Why, Yona's mane seems okay, just no braids. Wait, there were no braids from the beginning, but that's explainable.

There seems to be a problem with the special, Comixology only shows a half size version (1076x1650), even though the preview is much larger.
Here's a copy of YayPonies temporary rip. It seems like the best we can get right now only looks marginally better than OP's rip.
https://transfer.sh/8Xz5W/idw2020.cbz

I'm counting on Salem-Empire for a better rip, but they wait over a month before releasing new comics. Assuming they use a different source or they know how to deal with Comixology's fuckup.

The guy who rips the comics posts the links in the YayPonies Discord server (there's an invite in YayPonies, next to the other links: index, faq, irc, *Discord*, twitter, etc).
Allegedly, the admin of YayPonies should publish these links, but he's usually pretty slow updating the page.

It's pretty preposterous. The thing is, the original admin stopped caring about comics years ago. Then this new guy, unrelated to YayPonies, started buying the comics and packing them, and for many months he simply shared the links on a pastebin as some kind of unofficial YayPonies rips. Eventually the admin decided to add those comics to the page. For like a couple of comics, he updated the page when there was a new comic, so the guy who ripped the comics stopped updating the pastebin because it was unnecessary. And then the admin simply stopped updating the page without prior notice, so the latest comics are just buried on a discord server now.

>>33437790
It looks a bit noisy, but I'd say that it looks better than >>33437093 upscaled with Waifu2x. For reference, here's the preview. Which, for some reason, is slightly smaller.

Noisy is a fair assessment. Downloading the comixology version of this in thier app on Bluestacks then taking a screenshot of it full screen on a 4k screen in portrait mode turned out a lot better than I thought it would though.
>>
Hq
>>
>>33438220
Hey, this is a pretty good idea. Never used Bluestacks myself, can you set the screen size somewhere? Judging by the preview, maybe 1987x3056 is the native resolution, and the screencaps would look better if you used a screen with those dimensions. I have no idea if there's a way to check the actual native resolution of the comic, it really sucks that Comixology limits the web viewer to a much smaller version, you can clearly tell that the app is getting the HQ version.
>>
>>33439127
You can set the screen size to whatever you want from the settings. It acts like an android device, so you just have to install an app for rotation control and then there's a built in screenshot button for that as well.

Do you make those in Paint? Why all the pixels?
>>
>>33442955
I assume you mean at the edges? I'm doing it in Photoshop with mostly the magic wand and a really small paintbrush to touch things up. Anti-aliasing was making some of the cropping take longer since it would keep some off looking colors with a low transparency when it selected things, so to make life easier I turned it off.
The last step I do is usually taking the edge replacing all of them with black pixels to correct anything the magic wand didn't catch. Now that I'm thinking of it, there should be a way for me to smooth the edges there if I looked hard enough.

>>33457858
No, but 37 is about Trixie+Rarity. 36 and 38 are also good.
imo:
Lewends of Magic is good, also followed by ongoing Nightmare Knights.
I'd reread from time to time:
Nightmare Rarity arc (5-8, because of NR ofc),
Big Mac arc (9-10, slice of life with tons of easter eggs),
Neigh Anything (11-12, highscool comedy about Cadance and Shining),
Reflections (17-20, about Celestia falling in love which almost doomed Equestria),
Ponyville Days (30-31, major feud divided town and it became total mess),
Siege of Crystal Empire (Fiendship01, 34-37, Sombra's lover brings him back from the dead)
Ponies of Dark Water (43-45, M6 became evil, CMC to the rescue),
Chaos Theory (47-50, Discord becomes god of order and forces hivemind onto ponies)
From the Shadows (51-53, some dumb unicorn attacking libraries destroying books)
Convocation of Creatures (61-62, tons of pony world lore),
Return of Tempest Shadow (67-68)
Also issues 42, 57, 58, 60, 64, 65, 72 and 73.

She shows up, steals everyone's spotlight and saves the day during the Accord arc. She also has a minor cameo during the Elections two parter, then has a role during LoM 4, when she visits her boyfriend at the crystal empire.

Apparently the IDW staff knows she's extremely polarizing among the fans because she hasn't appeared since then. Which makes sense, since with the comic sales being so close to the danger zone, the least they want is another shitstorm to piss off the few readers they still have.
>>

I have to say that I think that having Trixie replacing Starlight in #73 was legitimately funny. It was incredibly random.

I mean, she didn't do anything, she didn't have a role in the comic, it's just that she was there with the other girls in one of the pages, but she had no reason to be there, and there was no Starlight.
It was like a random page from an alternate universe where Trixie was the one who joined the main cast.
>>
>>33458065
Probably that page was meant to have Starlight on it but Pencils got a note to redraw her as Trixie to avoid more damage to the comic's sales?
Comic sales dropped down the 6K range, and we know that as soon they go below 5K the comic will die.

Technically, Sombra returned in season 5 too, and I'm pretty sure that when they were producing The Cutie Re-Mark, they had similar character sheets with Sombra.
Not saying that he /won't/ come back for real this time, not saying that the show won't contradict the comics, but certainly >>33458153 doesn't really prove anything yet.

>>33457824
My 2 cents.

Be warned that the comics can swing widely in the quality spectrum, and more recently by the feel of these threads it's been in the negative. This is my usual copy pasta of recommendation though:

In the main comics it's give or take depending on the person. Keep in mind with these that from Comic #51 and on the comic staff tried way harder to keep the issues consistent with the show, so earlier issues will have at times striking contradictions with the show.
The Return of Queen Chrysalis and Nightmare Rarity arc (#1-#4 and #5-#8) were well received. Nightmare Rarity more than Chrysalis. The Pets comic (#23) gets a mention for having a great start only to be ruined when the ponies started talking, but I'd give it a read till that point just cause the pets are fantastic in it. Pinkie's comic (#42) was really nice and had a cute ending. I also liked the Zen and the Art of Gazebo Repair arc (#9 & #10), Neigh Anything arc (#11 & #12), and the Trixie Babs stuff in the Manehattan Mysteries arc (#20 & #21).

Micro series I'd say the Rarity, Pinkie, CMC, Celestia, and Luna issues (#3, #5, #7, #8, & #10) were great. Friends Forever series is a mixed bag. Spike and Celestia, Pinkie Pie and Luna, Babs Seed and Rarity, Twilight and Pinkie Pie, Applejack and Mayor Mare, Discord and Luna, Shining and Blueblood, Maud and Rarity, and Dash and Soaren issues (#3, #7, #12, #13, #15, #20, #26, #29 and #36) were the ones that stood out to me, but there's a few decent ones to me apart from those. You can pick from those based on your interest in the pairs.

In the Fiendship is Magic series it seemed like the Sombra and maybe Tirek ones were good (#1 & #2). Out of the Legends of Magic series I've liked them all so far, but #2 and #5 featuring Rockhoof and Somnambula respectively stand out there to me.

Legends of Magic was pretty solid altogether, but I felt like the origin stories (#1-#6) were better. Rockhoof (#2) and especially Somnambula (#5) were great for me.
>>
>>33459169
I think the Power Ponies and Legends of Magic annuals were decent, but the others aren't really. The first 8 pages of the 2013 Annual details how Sunset fell out of grace with Celestia before going to the EqG universe for the first time, but otherwise the EqG annuals are just sad with how not good they are. I thought that short was pretty neat and worth it though if you care at all about her. There was also a pony pony holiday special with art from all the comic artists that was pretty comfy.
>>
>>33449889
I'll try and see what I can do with the already posted crops now that I have time and then go for the others I haven't done yet.
>>
Just avoid anything written by Katie Cook after Zen and the Art of Gazebo repair, since after that two parger she decided to stop trying and just cash on her horse writer fame to sell the comics.
Until today she has never recovered from the negative backlash she got from Reflections onwards, and she still carries the old grudge against the "haters" aka whoever doesn't give her the praises she thinks she's entitled to.

Pixie's really cute. Her interactions with Zephyr bring the best of the later.

>>
>>33428915

Cute, but uneventful.

Which I guess is exactly what they wanted. Some nice interaction between the older and younger six, with Pencil's stellar art to seal the deal (points deducted for the colorist just kinda ruining his artwork, though).

It gets the job done, but I'll be lying if I didn't say I expected a bit more.

I'll give it an 8/10.

Any news about the HD rips? Yayponies still doesn't have them, and their IRC is dead even though they switched to Canternet after Ponychat died.
That only leaves the fabled discordfag posting links only in the seerkrit club.
Any chance of someone here getting in there to lurk and reposting said links?
I can archive all the comics indefinitely and upload them should someone request them in the future, but I'm not touching the discord botnet with a ten foot pole.
>>
>>33466599
I've edited pdfs of all comics: grouped them by arcs and removed all credits for better reading experience. And merged all doublepages.
If anyone is interested, I may try to upload. But that's still gigabytes of stuff.
>>
>>33466617
I'm guessing all the comics from #1 to a certain point are from the humble bundle. The rest from Yayponies, or from somewhere else?
>>
>>33466651
I downloaded all of them from YP. But I guess they got 1-23 from HB (or somewhere else), since these issues don't have YP credits pages.
>>
>>33466617
I have all of them already, except for the newer ones they haven't uploaded. I downloaded the SD ones that get linked by OP every time, but I was hoping to find the HD ones eventually.
I just figured someone would try and get in their discord. I see discord links posted left and right on this board, so I know for a fact at least some people on /mlp/ use it.
>>
>>33466707

Well, you're missing the YayPonies page with Derpy, but even if they released the comic too, it'd be exactly what you already have. The pages posted here >>33452482 are the HD rip, only the few preview pages of Ponyville Mysteries #1 at the end are missing, but other than that you won't get a better version.
>>
>>33468027

Why do they even add this stuff? It's completely unrelated. I mean, YP guys are probably ripping the pages from somewhere and then convert them to pdf and cbz. Couldn't they care a little bit more to remove ad pages?

HD vs SD
Wow, I'm reading these comic since the beginning, but never realized that multiple quality versions exists. I assumed that some are just simply released in a crappier quality.

Now I have to find a way to check/re-download all of the comics in HD...
Is there an easy way to get them all? I mean there are over 400 comics/books/etc ...

There is YayPonies site, it has all the HD comics but it also has picrelated page and additional pages with short previews of other series.
I recently thought that my autism really doesn't like this shit, so I downloaded a pdf editor and deleted all these extras. I may link a torrent if you want.

There is an archive with all the books with varying quality (different formatting). The new book is going to be released on 7th, so guy who posts books will going to upload it.
After the comics my autism suggested me that books look like crap too, so I'm eventually going to edit them all into similar format too.

>>33468068
>books look like crap too, so I'm eventually going to edit them all into similar format too.
What's wrong with the books?
>>
>>33468298
Too many white pages. I read them on my tablet and wondered if the file was corrupted, or it was a bug with the reader.
Also I found out there are two books with small pages and big text, so there are 300 pages instead of normal 60.

It's just my perfectionism, don't mind me, normal people.
>>
>>33468330
I could use the images to make a pdf, but I think that would break the text scaling. I'm pretty sure I've always taken the raw pdf from kindle/iTunes and just converted the file to other formats with the exception of the images I post. They're made with larger font for little kids I think.
>>
>>33468455
Then it seems the original pdfs are different.
The most different is Legend of Everfree book, also it has scans as the images in the books archive.

>>33468027
>Here you go.
Thanks. I think I have all of them now.

>>33468050
Not all of them are HD. Only those that were missing until a few months ago, when they updated the site before abandoning everything again. Some of the older ones are HD too I think, but they're only on the onion archive, or maybe yayponies just gave them a different name.

>>33468068
Things look like crap because you probably have them all as pdf files. You should have books in epub and comics in cbz.
The only advantage of pdf is compatibility, because you can open it everywhere, but it's not like those other formats are difficult to view.
Epub is basically glorified HTML ( I even edited some fics I downloaded from fimfiction to have pictures embedded in the file instead of being links to imgur) and cbz is literally a zipped folder renamed to look like a file.

Just use Calibre. You can skip the whole library thing the main program opens with by opening files directly with ebook-viewer.exe. Select it as default program, and just forget about the rest. Just double clicking will open the file with it.
If you can't view it correctly it was probably converted from some other format and got fucked up somehow.
