    The dialogue is great, from the King's self-centered, anti-friendship monologues to the invaded kingdom's cries for mercy, to even the dialogue between Strife and the Storm King. The story and concept just play out well. The art is great and looks just like one would expect. It does the style of the usual series well, though a few zoomed out shots look a little wonky. If you're a fan of the series or are excited about the movie (I will unashamedly admit that i am both), this book is a definite pick up for you. If not, there's nothing here to really persuade you to get it. It does what it sets out to do well, and makes one wonder what's coming. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jun 27, 2017

    My Little Pony: The Movie Prequel is a complicated piece of media. Its a prequel to a movie that isnt out yet that mostly works. I like the Storm King, though Im a bit worried about how dangerous he really is given some of the writing/framework that goes into this book. If MLP is going to get a full-blown movie, it needs a badguy to match. The Storm King? Well see. Thankfully the rest of the book is a lot of fun, and the artwork really sells everything it needs to.

    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs Jun 28, 2017

    If you're a die-hard fan of the show or your child is then reading My Little Pony: The Movie Prequel #1 may be for you. The story is flimsy but the art is nice and it helps lay some groundwork for the movie itself. My biggest issue was that the villain just didn't seem villainous and has no dimension. Perhaps this will be expanded upon on screen but as it stands now, this comic made me wonder what tone the movie will have. Being a movie, there is a chance to take the story a bit more seriously and add depth but if the villain is this one-note then I'm not sure where the story will go from there. Not a bad read but also not a very good read. Read Full Review
