    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Jan 1, 2013

    Overall, My Little Ponyhas done it again. I was smiling and laughing the whole way through. You get a lot of content, it almost feels like you're readingtwo comics for the price of one. For fans of the show, iteasilycapturesthe characters and makes for more fun adventures. For new readers, the dialogue is funny and a true ‘all-ages' title, I'm willing to bet that this series will make more fans! Another incredible installment, I haven't been this excited for a comic on a monthly basis in awhile, long live the Ponies! (And Optimus Prime makes a cameo, so there's always that.)

A recap or character page would be a welcome addition to those unfamiliar with the show, but anypony can jump in (hooves first!) and enjoy Cook and Price's talented take on the MLP world.

We get more than enough context to appreciate who is whom, as well as clever interjections from the villainess to remind us of the stakes, while each hero is given enough uniqueness to differentiate, even if you can't hear the cartoon voices in your head. (It's pretty easy to do so, though.) All in all, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic #2 hits a sweet spot, delivering a fun story with good dialogue, excellent art, and enough grown up references to keep me entertained, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. Best of all, once I'm done, I can give it to the daughter for her collection, as she has asked several times if the issue is for her... Read Full Review

    A superb effort that is done only by the fact that a like story has been done before in the series. Still, a fantastic issue. Highly enjoyable!
