    February 28, 2013 5:31 am Great review, felt similar with my read. I just posted my own review of the comic.
    November 29, 2012 11:19 am Thanks, glad you liked it.
    November 28, 2012 9:51 pm Okay I posted my review. I tried to give a fair and balanced look at this comic since I am not really into geek culture or fandoms, I am looking more from the storytelling and use of the comics medium. Also talked a little about the show for those unfamiliar with it.
    November 28, 2012 8:29 pm I just read this and am writing up a fair and balanced review of this comic right now.
    November 28, 2012 8:20 pm I just read it comic and will be posting my review soon, good review though I was curious to see how someone who hasn't seen the show would think of it.
    November 27, 2012 9:09 pm I love history so I should check out Ron's recommendation. Good for you Josh open minded as always. For those who might be confused with the popularity of the new MLP show, as a person who studies narrative art let me use an analog from comics history. In comics you had the Golden Age with creativity, storytelling, and innovation was at its height followed a dark period after Watchmen before works like Kingdom Come, Astro City, and All Star Superman came out. Why the new MLP is so popular because it reminds people and harkens back to the 90's Animation Resistance and 40's Animation Golden Age. Alternatively the new My Little Pony could be compared to Watchmen. Like with what Alan Moore Watchmen taking analogs of the Charleton characters who were at best typical, cheesy superheros and reimagining them a new way making use of the comics medium and inspiring innovation in the industry Lauren Faust took what was basically the horrible franchised product which has been the butt joke of culture since the 80's and reimagined them a way that worked with broke the mold of what a typical girls/kids show should be and created new innovative stories which appealed too all people outside the excepted age group. She took the flash animation medium, which was until MLP was considered a cheap, bland, flat method of animation and showed that one could achieve the same animated techiques as those applied with traditional animation. And like Watchmen, MLP allowed for a new boom in flash animated shows. As for the comic I am not sure if I am a fan of translating works from one medium to another though I will check it out. I have not seen the Green Arrow show yet but I might check the comic out.
