    Fleecs and Zahler both bring many things to this comic.  They both have great skill as storytellers.  Each of them is skilled as both artist and writer.  They both bring strong knowledge and understanding of this franchise.  Beyond that, they bring an understanding of the unique differences between the TV and Comics media.  They know what can be done in comics that cannot be done on TV, and they know how far they can take those advantages without overstepping the boundaries.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Jul 26, 2016

    The story is solid with all of the characters going bad and it ends with some actual tension with the cliffhanger. Now all the creative team needs to do is find a way to fix things. Usually it will involve magic but given the surprises the team likes to use, it sometimes is hard to guess what will happen next. Hopefully it won't get wrapped up too quickly but given the fact the next issue is the end of this story line there is a good chance this will happen. Read Full Review

    Nightmare of Solomon Jul 31, 2016

    The biggest thing this comic did was undo the oft-maligned change Katie Cook did about Nightmare Moon being an entity that possessed Luna, rather than Nightmare Moon actually being the darkside of Luna -- this fixes that, so there's that.
