If you’ve been to a comic book store in recent years you may have noticed what a surprise hit IDW’s My Little Pony comics were, so it may come as little surprise that they are announcing a new ongoing comic series set in the world of A New Generation.
Here’s what we know so far. The title this time is simply My Little Pony. The series will follow the adventures of Sunny Starscout, Hitch Trailblazer, Izzy Moonbow, Zipp Storm, Pipp Petals, the stars of the Netflix film and upcoming animated series A New Generation, as well as their pet/sidekick Cloudpuff. Whether this Cloudpuff is a true pet or just another critter that won’t leave poor Hitch alone, we shall see. The plot follows the events of the film. One of the Unity Crystals has been stolen, and it’s up to the heroes to get it back.
The series is expected to release on May 5, with the first issue written by Celeste Bronfman and illustrated by Amy Mebberson. There will of course be variant covers, drawn by Amy Mebberson, JustaSuta and Brianna Garcia. We have images of what may be two of these covers.
