I've quite enjoyed the comics so far.

 

The Nightmarity arc was pretty good.

 

I can't wait for more!!

I just added a poll : )

 

And have pre-emptively voted for the Big Mac Arc, even though I haven't read the second part.  

 

I also considered allowing you to vote for more that one, out of the selfish desire to vote for both Rarity AND Twilight.  Those are so close that I have a lot of trouble deciding, but in the words of Hank Green "...but twilight's the nerdiest, and that goes a long way..."

Regarding: Issue #9 (Zen and the Art of Gazebo Repair Part 1)

 

Sooooo cool to get inside Big Mac's Head!  

They did a great job explaining his feelings and thoughts without changing the character.

 

A few of the good moments:

*Can't resist the caber toss...but as buff and rough as he is, still went to get a splinter romoved...you big softy!

*There is no way that mare at the kissing booth wouldn't have known how shy Big Mac was.  That was almost certainly her teasing him!

*The artist did a fantastic "peanuts" parody for silver soon and diamond tiara.  

*The interaction with Snowflake was fun.  Maybe not consistant with what we know about him, but a nice surprise nonetheless. 

*Luna out-competing Big Mac : )

*Had we ever seen him frustrated before?  He seemed unflappable.  It certainly took a LOT to get him there though.

 

---

 

Regarding: Microseries #6 (Applejack)

More like Microseries: Granny Smith!

Very cute and fluffy, and the Sass-Squash was very lovable.  

 

I just wish Applejack would get over her "do it myself" mentality...but this seemed to be a step in the right direction.  At least in this one, as opposed to the Applebuck season episode, she figured it out by herself.  That made me smile.

I think so far Rarity's mini-series was the most entertaining so far. And while I love the Chrysalis saga, Big Mac's journey gets my vote for just being super funny, and it's only one issue in!

Part of the draw may also be that they show that he thinks a ton, even while he continues to be shy and quiet.  

We already know the primary characters very well, so expanding on somebody that we love, but don't know much about is great.

Well...

 

They're all good in their own, unique, and individual way.

 

But... if I HAD to choose one... well...

 

Hmm...

 

For the main series... I'd have to choose the Nighmarity arc. I just LOVED it. It might be because I REALLY like Luna (who doesn't lol) but still. Plus, I liked the explanation that arc gave for how/why she turned into Nightmare Moon. Plus... it fits what I did in that INSANE fanfiction I wrote so I don't have to redo that part. Not that I was planning on doing that anyway, but still.

 

:)

 

For the Micro Series... hmm...

 

Most people disliked it this one, but, I thought it was unique.

 

The Rainbow Dash one. The Gremlins were... interesting villains. Plus... that gives me some more things to work with if I ever make a sequel to that INSANE fanfiction. That'll only happen if a TWEWY2 is made... but... still.

 

8D

 

That's all I have to say I guess.

 

:(

The nightmare arc was good, and I loved the redemption at the end, but there were a few things that soured me towards it:

1)The implication that Luna bore ZERO responsibility for her fall from grace.  The show doesn't make that implication, and the consequences of such an assertion are disturbing.

2) Seeing a pony tied up in such a way was pretty disturbing.  

 

Regarding Rainbow's issue, I am glad that you enjoyed it.  I don't need EVERY issue and episode to be written for me, as long as they are loved by someone.

Indeed!

If not for the poor portrayal of Fancy Pants, it would be a contender for the top spot.  It was awful to see a pony of such strong character associate with such a rotten individual, and then not stick up for the artists.

Why do you say surprising?  Do you not like them?

 

I worry that the CMC storyline will never pay off for me.  That they will end up getting their marks without learning how they should have been pursuing it.

Oh yeah, they are terribly annoying...mostly because of the reason I stated...but other reasons too.

Was re-reading zen and the art of gazebo repair today, and the 7 year old girl I was reading it to noticed something I'd missed (I showed Frostfauna, and he had NOT missed it).

 

There is a mailbox for Derpy in part 1, next to a strange green mound with a hole in it.  Clearly, this is supposed to be Derpy's home, but what was it?  If you go back to issue 1, it is the chrysalis structure that the ponies were imprisoned in!  Derpy is living in an old cocoon?!  Kinda sad really.

 

Also, more from part II:

I don't know... I guess... I was expecting more from it.

 

Oh well...

(sigh)

I don't think you lowered my expectations quite enough with that post.

At least it was mostly consistent with her character.
