    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Mar 17, 2016

    Overall, MLP #40 provides a great story of how the close friendship between Twilight and Spike came to be. It's also a nice look at Twilight as a filly. (Plus we get to see more of her parents.) The art is fantastic, probably Brenda Hickey's best work. Aside from a continuity error, (it's not big enough to take away the perfect score) the issue is a superb read and one all MLP fans should check out. Read Full Review

    The regular cover pictured above is done by this issue's artist; Brenda Hickey. Featuring a collage of photographs from Spikes earliest days as a baby dragon, under the watchful eye of Twilight, (who looks very stressed out.)The second cover is for the subscribers and has been done with pastel colouring pencils. A soft technique that is perfect for the image, with Twilight, baby Spike and her parents enjoying a trip to the beach. This one was created by Sara Richard.The third cover is by Jennifer L. Meyer, with a passed out Twilight cradling a little Spike. A touching scene and one that truly reflects the young fillies torn commitments, between study and Spike.And lastly the Hot Topic exclusive is a scene straight out of US Box Office Hit – The Hangover. Twilight holds the innocent Spike in a baby carrier, while wearing some trendy dark shades.My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue 40 is available now from all the awesome comic book shops!

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Mar 17, 2016

    Regardless, the comic is good. Really good, even. Its one of the more mature issues Ive seen of MLP:FiM , but it works with its content in a way that melds itself well with its cute art style and world. Read Full Review
