    Overall, Fiendship is Magic starts off most excellent. King Sombra is a character in need of deepening, and this issue does it well. This is a must-buy for MLP fans. Read Full Review

    The story is well written. SOMBRA is presented as a dynamic, well-rounded character, and his descent into evil is portrayed in understandable terms. The question of what causes a rational being to reject good in favor of evil has long been a classic theme of literature. It is surprising to see it in a 'kiddie book.' Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Kate Coenen Apr 4, 2015

    My Little Pony: Fiendship is Magic #1 is a moving start to this event series, and Sombra's tragic backstory provides added depth to the character without excusing his behavior. This issue offers something different from the traditional happy ending, and explores fear and isolation in a powerful but age-appropriate way. After this issue, I'm looking forward to learning more about the rest of Equestria's fiends and seeing more of My Little Pony‘s dark side. Read Full Review
