>>33617221Next book I'm considering is either the Baking Hardcover on 4/9 or the MLP Manga Vol 1 in June if that one's not good enough.
>>33617211>Daybreaker fucking murders her the instant its doableBest Nightmare horse.
>>33617218do I even have to say it?
>>336172189/10. Satisfying conclusion, all the plot threads tied up nicely, Eris fucking died. Rest in Pieces fowl creature.
I guess you could say Eris......flew too close to the sun.
>>336172187/10 good comic but a really shitty villain
>>33617169but I wanted the cosmos comic REEEEEEE
>>33617221i hope they spend at least some time with Discord and Fluttershy
>>33617211The birb has flown
>>33617218Well gee I dunno.++ Pretty much good art. Did not find any atrocities in panels.+ Not bad story resolution. Luna trying to "bond" with Daybreaker.+ Heist film vibes- Eris was too generic / tame.8/10
>>33617195>powerful illusionist Finally something that trixie is actually good
>>33617215Fuck the good ponies and creatures in that dimension I guess.
>>33617633All dead in the sun fire
>>33617633You can't save everyone. But Luna literally leave a whole dimension in the hooves of daybreaker that discovered that she can't show any kind of mercy anymore. I wonder how this will backfire in the future, because this daybreaker know about interdimensional travels
>>33617215I honestly didn't expect it to end like that. Up until the last page I thought we'd get some bullshit deux ex machina happy ending for the alternate universe. Instead we got:-Luna/NMM confirmed DEAD-Stygian/ Pony of Shadows dead-Pillars of Equestria also dead-Eris btfo over the horizon, probably dead-Celestia stays corruptedIs this the comic with the biggest death toll? Were there even any deaths in MLP comics up until now (I haven't followed all of them)? Storm King and the Princess in Crystal Empire that got shattered by Sombra don't really count as they can still be restored.
>>33617884>Luna/NMM confirmed DEADNot just confirmed dead, she got confirmed killed by Celestia/Daybreaker, her own sister. Now thats pretty fucked up for MLP to include even in a comic.
>>33617239>>33617347not to fast,soon she will do with everything.>>33617661and soon with equestria,of course except the mane six.
>>33617218So many cliches. So little time.Great art and neat characters though, but it felt like I was on this road once before.
>>33617218Dissapointing, rushed and at the end absolutely nothing changed.2/10, because the story was just a clump of nonsense and Fleec's hollow art only made it worse.
>>33617218A lot of wasted potential in this mini series, but the resolution was really satisfying.
Big "meh." I'm sure the CMC thing will be worse though so I'll take it.
>>33618026Cosmos arc will get most interesting with the 4th issue when Cook will try to drop a plotline bomb like giving Discord a backstory or canonizing discoshy
To me it feels more like a build up for a sequel, than a finale.What disappointed me in this arc is that it was supposed to be Luna's time to save the day, probably the last chance she'd get considering G4 is ending.Instead it was another take on "Luna makes a mistake and then an adventure happens where she tries to undo the bad her actions caused". It was another Tantabus episode.Yes, she did save the main world by reclaiming her powers, but she was indirectly responsible for putting the world at risk by having her powers stolen in the first place when she got tricked by Eris into going through the mirror.We didn't even get chance for some awkward funny interactions between our Luna and her AU version like Celestia did in "Reflections" because she's already a rotting corpse by the time our Luna ends up in their world.She was shown as strong and level headed even when stripped of her powers, don't get me wrong, but in the end all she and her crew did was replace one bad guy in charge with another.
>>33618129>she was indirectly responsible for putting the world at riskI remember this being one of the reasons why Reflections arc was hated.
Does Whitley ever read anything he writes out loud?
>>33617179>Mixing sad weepy expressions with smug as fuck expressions>Dat attempt at "dialogue".>That shitty excuse of an art style that makes even Nightmare Moon's naturally sleek design look like a pudgy Care Bear beanface.I thought this was Katie and Price. Is the entirety of the MLP team mentally retarded? for that matter why do only these specific 4 people do the adventure arcs? why not put in charge the people behind the slice of life arcs? Jenn Blake does some decent art.
>>33617186Is this a comic book for babies?>Ooh noo my completely obvious plan to sabotage your staff WORKED FLAWLESSLY YOU FUCKING IDIOT.I mean this is what I'd read out of a slice of life adventure for 5-8 year olds. This is what I'd expect out funny comedy show with hackneyed writing. Yet they're pretending that they're focusing on action.
>>33618168Jenn blake is probably dead right now
>>33618129Oh, I just found more thing to be pissed off about. In the letter never-to-be-sent to her sister Luna writes:>But we cannot force them to make the right choices.>We cannot force them to be good.This?Coming from Luna?The pony who got the evil literally blasted from her in the pilot episode?!The ONLY character in the entire show that got reformed by force?!Then it gets even worse:>Instead, we must form new friendships with those we meet on our new paths.and further down:>And hope that those who have taken different paths someday find their way back to us.Luna wouldn't be writing this now if Celestia left her reformation to "hope" and hoped she'd come around on her own.Hell, she probably wouldn't even be alive if she returned as NMM and the Elements weren't at the ready to stop her without any bloodshed.The worst part is that there's no good resolution to this scenario that I can think of. Even if Daybreaker could be reformed back to Celestia then how would that end? With her ruling a dead kingdom that she and her sister destroyed? Knowing that she killed her own sister?
>>33618168Same reason they keep Heather fucking Breckel for 6+ years. Somebody really needs to hire that retard, she's fucking all the line art and colors. But IDW handles their comics like DBZ's creator handles his "interesting, strategic, serious" anime battles.
>>33618153We already know he unironicaly believes his writing is flawless and superior to the show's writers.
>>33618200to fire* , fucking up*
>>33618206Gotta find the tweet, but he said Radiant Hope faced challenges Twilight never did.
>>33618223Hold up. I thought Radiant choose herself to go to the shadow chrystal world thing. How did she lose her home then?
>>33618193Too bad. The slut knew how to draw thick and feminine.
>>33618232Sombra made the Crystal Empire disappear, so Radiant did lose her home. After that, she spent some time in Canterlot before seeking out the shadow crystal world thing.
>>33618245She has a bunch of flaws in her art, but I'd still pick her or anyone else over Fleecs and Price.
>>33618168>>33618193>>33618245>>33618255What happened to her? she is really dead or you're just memeing?
>>33618206Read all of his tweets regarding Mina, Dragon Town and Seige of the Crystal Empire.
>>33618253Holy autism. I completly forgot that.
>>33618260She has cancer, anon. Normally here's where we make some tasteless jokes about that, but let's just try to behave for once, k'?Yeah, her art was flawed and her page composition was extremely boring but I still would take her over Fleecs or Garbowzka.
>>33618260She had brain cancer. All of her online accounts - save for her DA, which hasn't updated in ages - are gone now, with no word about her condition, so the assumption is that she passed.>>33618265Well the comic writers have more flexibility than the show writers do in regards to what themes and storylines they can explore, meaning he and the others can have stories that the show can't. There's nothing inherently wrong with that.
>>33618269What a shame. I guess I can forgive her for inserting her OC on the comic.
>>33618285Her pony is cute, at the very least.And she liked Rarity, so she had good taste.
>>33618276found the fucking contrarian
>>33618293>Huge waifufag >Love to get drunk >Literally Tomoko from watamoteShe was literally /ourgal/
>>33618299yeah so you could play contrarian and deny everything?fuck off
>>33618255Or Jay Fagitt or whatever his name is.
>>33618186>this is what I'd read out of a slice of life adventure for 5-8 year olds.What the heck do you think you're reading?
>>33618360Instead of a Canadian flash cartoon tier writing I believe that judging by: the cover, the bravado of the writer and the vocabulary he uses - I'm at the very least suppose to be reading an Archie-tier comic book for 12 year olds, maybe Disney's Fillmore-tier writing or maybe 90s and 2000s Teen Titans, Fantastic Four, Superman, DC, Marvel writing.I'm expecting some brains judging by the writers' massive ego emanating out of his words.
>>33618356Well, eventually Pencils replaced him so I'm taking all little victories with a smile on my face.
>>33618384and from the cartoon's staff even more gigantic ego since they have been supporting the comic and sven shilling some friends using the cartoon itself at the cost of neglecting everything else
>>33617169I genuinely thought this was Katie Cook and Andy Price judging by the art style and writing style. Jeremy and Tony write and art almost the same as those 2 chucklefucks. They cannot do an effective story to save their lives. It's always convoluted trash pretending to be smarter than it yells. They have incredibly shit practices. It's like they were taught wrong or they taught themselves wrong as a joke. They cannot create a good product to save their lives.They can't even write differing personalities and vocabularies for each of their characters, everyone talks the same way. The most basic entry to writing characters and they skipped over it.I'm going back to /co/, need to wash the taste of shit.
Hey guys. Remember when the incompetent writers where assigned to make inoffensive SoL comics?
>>33618384>I'm expecting some brains judging by the writers' massive ego emanating out of his ass.FTFY
>>33618427>I'm expecting some brains judging by the writers' massive ego emanating out of their asses.FTFY
>>33618446>I'm expecting some brains judging by the writers' massive ego emanating out of their collective ass.*
>>33618421That comic was fun at least. A lot of shipping shitpost was made. The times where people thought Cheriemac is going to be canon
>>33618421That was before the fandom's praise made them feel all smug and important, anon. Andy and Katie were okay until that same issue in particular, but after that they decided to do things their way and that's how the comic ended up selling 6K copies per month as opposed to the 30K from before.Now, this is the part where the resident IDWankers drop by to talk about "Buh-buh teh dijital saleeees!" to apply their usual damage control, except that we already know that IDW is facing a critical situation because of their all around low sales, both physical and digital, at the point they are willing to sell a share of the company to whoever gives them money to survive longer.
>>33618487It's funny how IDW never wanted MLP since they beat TMNT and sometime Transformers.
>>33618500>It's funnygo kill yourself, austardonly subhuman assholes start a phrase like that
>>33618500>Have GI JOE>TMNT>Transformers>Defeated by colorful pastel ponies for little girlsI wonder why
>>33618512They also used to have Doctor Who, but BBC pulled the franchise from them because DW's comic was quickly turning into unreadable shit.IDW's bad rep about hiring hacks and conflictive writers isn't limited to MLP alone, it goes a long way around.
>>33618531I know they massively fucked up with GI Joe when Joefanboys reported to Hasbro and Hasbro forced the writer to be fired, but the actual CEO of IDW like an unprofessional mental retard tried to keep the writer to work on GI Joe.How are the Transformers, TMNT, PPG and other comics? any good? or the same cheesy bullshit written by immature pretentious mental retards who never passed the 7th grade?
>Be Princess Eris>You never appear in the covers>You literally don´t appear in a entire number (#2)>Be betrayed for a villain in a retarded way.>You slave makes more fear than you>Never showed why you´re superior to your cousin>Be the female character without porn in the most profanated series.>Your name is more related with the genderbend of your cousin.>For the previous reason, you are nicknamed "Turkey Eris".>Never attack an enemy, only protect yourself.>Nobody of the heroes cared if you´re live or not.>IDW delayed your last number to show MLP #75. >Cosmos shows more fear in some pages than you in 5 issues.>Cosmos is more related to be a draconequus for design than you even if you´re a familiar of Discord.Poor turkey.
>>33619099IDW allowed SJW writers to introduce the idea of transexual Transformers into the comic, so what do you think?
>>33619132Which with sales declining and how bad the Transformers comic series got with its sjw-ness, Hasbro pretty much shut it down by forcing IDW to pretty much reboot everything and start from a clean slate.
>>33619099That was just a rumor but it's a rumor consistent with IDWs stunning incompetence.>>33619170And yet, hired no new, or practically no new people.
Jeremy, you have the god complex to say "i write better than the writers of the show" and that´s how you show them? with a character who can add more deep to Discord, be a revision of the Princess Luna inferiority complex motivation, be another draconequus to show some imaginative panels for her powers... and you give a pathetic daugther of a angry orgy without love between Chrysallis, Skyla, Capper and Discord...How is possibe than a character who was created for be a powerful OC like Cosmos shows more respect than a villain who can show so much potential and explore the inferiority complext better because she appear more time than Nightmare Moon?
>>33617179that is a cute NMM
>>33617211I like this Celestia, she is useful
>>33617211The only shadow of something good, instead of a shadow of a shadow of it.
>>33619132>>33619170>complaining about "SJWs">when MLP FiM was created by a feminist with the expressed purpose of telling feminist children's storiesGo to bed, you babies.
>>33619974oh no, its hank hasdrone!
>>33619974>Go to bed, you babiesYou people have been crying about Trump for two years, yet have the audacity to call us babies. It's almost as if libtards are in a state of perpetual projection.
>>33620277Autism and Aspergers makes them be completely unaware of how much a waste of food and space they are, anon.He will claim some bullshit argument like "thanks for proving my point" to strut around pretending he won .
>>33617174>if storm king wasn't a dick to tempest he'd have wonWell, he's not WRONG.
>>336172188/10.Art was pretty great, I really dig it.The resolution was way too predictable, with Capper pulling a bait and switch and all that.Eris was kinda boring too, tough I didn't expect her to die THIS hard.Also didn't expect them to keep Daybreaker evil, Luna's letter in the end there was a nice touch.Overall I rate the series 7/10; great art, great Trixie, but sort of a lacking plot.I haven't read any comics since the start of the reflections arc when it came out, and been looking for a reason to pick them back up since then. I'd say this arc was a good point to do so.
>>33620410oh no its steven shill
>>33617184>can't figure out a simple magic trick>Obsessively demands it like a childGod, is this villain autistic?
>>33619974ORANGE MAN VERY BAD
>>33619974>when MLP FiM was created by a feminist with the expressed purpose of telling feminist children's storiesYeah, and the creator fucking fail thank to this fandom and herself. Bless this degenerate fandom
>>33620416Well, there's a reaosn why some fags claim to identify themselves with her, anon.
9/10, for the ending, 8/10 if I'm factoring in the first half.Eris is pretty weak, and is basically an autistic spaz. That being said, I enjoyed this comic, and found it have a refreshingly good Conclusion-- normally, comics start out good and then have shit conclusions because they don't want to get too violent or final with the villains, but this did the OPPOSITE.Eris being set up as a smug snake actually works here because it leads into Daybreaker at the end. And her basically telling them "Fuck off, I'm still evil and not going to just become friends with you" after nuking the villain was a really good path to take.Some of this was a bit formulaic (Could see capper's fumbles being obvious ploys to mess up the staff the second it occured), but I really enjoyed the end, and it Luna mulling over how she made her sister feel when she turned evil and refused to reform 1000 years ago felt very right.
>>33620453>smug snakeGreat, now we also have TV Tropestards coming here.
>>33620459You've always had TV tropes people here, get off it.
>>33620467oh no, its clyde contrarian
>>33620486how about talking about the actual comic rather than accusing me of being some random named poster based on 1 word in my post?
>>33620416Turkey Eris is a meme
>>33619132And there was the one Jem comic I got, where Kimber and Stormer were fat bull dukes.
>>33618399Yet Fosgitt did do one of Nightmare Knights #1’s covers so he may still be around.>>33618276Surprised that EQD hasn’t said anything about her passing. Maybe she’s just in the final stage. Hard to draw when you’re pumped full of morphine.
So wait, Daybreaker REALLY thinks she can hold her rule of this world when fucking Tirek, who literally drained Discord, the ACTUAL god of chaos,'s magic?She's going to get shitstomped pretty damned quickly unless she, ironically, focuses on "friendship" and building an actual alliance of other villains to shore herself up.
>>33620496>how about taking the discussion to a battleground where i could win with bullshit and shilling?thats you right now
>>33620698This is a thread about a comic; I stated that I literally don't give a shit about your autistic screeching about me using one word offhandedly in my post.I'm here to actually post about the topic, not get into a shitflinging fight with a monkey.
>>33620706You can't talk about pony comics here. Nor the show, movie, books, games, or spinoff for that matter.The only thing you're allowed to do here is shit on MLP and fantasize about a time where it was the most perfect and pure show ever and was suddenly ruined. And if you like anything that came after season 1, you're a Hasbro shill, a SJW, a contrarian, or whatever lazy buzzword is being used at the moment.
>>33620818glimmernigger and nyxfag
>>33620818Don't forget that if you like just season 1 then you're a Faustard or whatever term is popular at the moment. Equal minimum hate for every type of Anon and all.
>>33620818>faustfags actually believe this
>>33621191Believe what? Objective truth?
>>33617204>>33617206>tells her to remove the orb>she just doesEris is such a brainlet. Just like Discord I guess
>>33621208That's just like, your opinion, man.Early pony was fucking fantastic, but it's not the only good season. And that is an objective fact.Now quit going off this thread's topic, this is your last (You), use it well.
>>33620818>any opinion i dont like is a buzzword>any meanie who refuses to circlejerk with me is a hater>any time i cant use 4chan as my personal group therapy im being opressedgo back to your containmnent community, dan derpibooru
>>33617218Really enjoyed this arc, mostly because I liked to see more of Tempest, although I wish she had a bigger role. Trixie was pretty great, and Capper was surprisingly enjoyable. I feel that Stygian is still underused. Luna was just OK, I still think that the source of the conflict was kinda stupid, and Eris was disappointing as a villain, although I'm still worried about Cosmos, and maybe an incompetent villain ends up being better than a too OP villain.I didn't expect the ending at all, Daybreaker killing Eris was brutal, and the heroes abandoning the world and pretty much giving it to a tyrant to rule it is not the kind of thing we see every day. Nice surprise factor.I think I still liked the Legends of Equestria arc better, and Tempest's comics in the main series were better Tempest comics than this, but yeah, this was a good arc too. Looking forward to the Crusaders' arc now.Thanks for sharing the comic, anon.
>>33617201>get cocky with a weakened alicorn and unicorn with a barrier>>33617210>start begging when the staff is destroyedThis is so fucking pathetic, where are her chaos magic? where are her power?
>>33617221Next month???? You mean next week i hope
>>33617212So in the end... they just trade one cruel ruler for another?
>>33623270And yet there's people gushing and fainting all over this trainwreck.
>>33618205Considering the absolute state of the show nowadays...
>>33618506Calm your autism, son.
>>33620277You faggots cry way more over people "crying" about Trump than actual libtards crying about Trump.
>>33623353>>33623358Normally we use 1 post to say something.>>33623365Learn to fucking use capitals and punctuation, you retard.
>>33617206I hate niggers and I hate cats.
>>33623422how about black cats?
>>33617206>>33617211Who the fuck taught Katie Cook and Jeremy Whitley how to write? Tweeter and Tumblr?What the fuck. This is how zoomers write in the 2010s? It's pretentious and autistic as fuck. I can't tell if it's suppose to be funny children drivel or serious adult drama.What the fuck is this style?
>>33617218I honestly followed this just for Trixie, so I really didn't care much about the others, specially the nigger cat and the broken horn dyke from the movie. Eris is furry shit, absolutely lame, but Daybreaker was cool, and the greatest pony wasn't a totally useless clown chained to glimmernigger, so I rate this otherwise 0/10 comic 4/10.
I know I'll have time later this weekend, so feel free to ask if you Anons want anything cropped from this one when I go through it.
Well, there was that turkey eris... now, i made a redesign with another artist to make she looks less dump and more like a draconequus like her cousin.
>>33623985Really, no opinion about that design? Anybofy who will say "oh look, she is now better" or a "sucks"?
>>33623985>>33625314Dunno, don't really care about her. Whatever, man. Also it seems draconequuses can be different, see Cosmos.(and I absolutely dislike redesigns and "g5"s)
>>33625314If you want attention, praises and validation, try going to Derpibooru or FurAffinity.
>Comic storytime>The entire thread is practically nothing but trolling and bickering with next to no discussion about the comic itself.So can I assume the comic was just THAT uninteresting and worthless?
>>33628019These are non-canon comics about chaos. There is nothing to discuss because there is no logic on it and no continuity with the show. Maybe we could discuss it just like a fanfiction.
>>33628071I've seen fanfiction and Anon stories with more and better discussion than this comic here.
>>33628019It's underwhelming. What is there to discuss?
>>33617617trixie does real magic. this comic is retarded shit just like the show.
>>33628019It´s a comic where the villain was defeated with the most retarded plan of all. So...
>>33628317seige of the crystal empire was retarded and had an even retardest resolution and yet it spawned lots of discussion
>>33628334seriosly exist a more stupid way to defeat a villain or end a story than "i make the most obviosly distraction to take the powers, but the villain falls in it, so i am a genius"?
>>33628353shut up of cook is going to take that as a personal challenge to write something even dumber
>Please come back with us so I can mentally traumatize my sister with your presence.>I'm sure nothing will go horribly wrong with this idea.Luna, sometimes you get hit with the idiot stick.
Which third world shit hole is posting in this thread? Your English is shit and your opinions are even worse. Go outside and kick a ball around with Jorge or Oobaboogaloo or whatever terrible names parents give their kids in your land.
>>33628489the comic is so bad in a point where nobody can´t speak english correctly.
>>33628745the comic is so bad that only autistic amurricans think its good
it's ok. thank you Op
This whole series just kind of sputtered out.
>>33630980Lot of it was kinda eh, but Daybreaker was cool to see.
Hopefully 3 or 4 more bumps will keep this alive till Tuesday night so it hits a week like usual.
One bump for late readers.
>>33636771And one more to put this over the week edge. Should last to the next comic now I think.
Bump so I can link this one to the other storytime thread.
Woah, this thread don´t die... the magic of the triggering and Daybreaker.
>>33640581Goddamit Celestia! even your Nightmare Moon version is actually superior to Luna´s Nightmare Moon...
>>33640764Nightmare moon's design was at the very start of the series, alot of stuff was barebones then.I wonder what G5 Nightmare moon will look like.
>>33640857Luna and celestia are some of their top sellers, there's no fucking way they won't have them in G5. I wouldn't be surprised if Luna was the villain of the movie (possibly with another villain manipulating or bossing her around)
>>33640897I would watch that.
