Luna's Curse - MLP issue 8 cover by andypriceart Luna's Curse - MLP issue 8 cover by andypriceart
This may be my favorite cover so far... this was the retail incentive cover for issue 8. It's no secret that Luna is my favorite of all the characters, so a completely Luna dedicated cover was a great joy to do. I think if I could do a book of just Luna, Applejack, and Chrysalis... I would plotz into a fine red mist of pure joy.

Wow, this is amazing! Luna is my favorite character too, but my love for her was developed in reading the comic books. I love your art so much, and you make Princess Luna 101 times better  Hug

 I like how you said you would do a comic book with Luna, Applejack, and Chrysalis

Then on the issue #12 one million variant, Shining is reading a comic book with 
Luna, Applejack, and Chrysalis on the cover.

From the first time I saw this on my friends wall, I had a question arise,  why is Nightmare Moon back-lit green?

It's also no surprise that Luna has had quite a dark past, but that's all slowing becoming a distant memory now.....

Oh, just the fact of the words you wrote on Nightmare Moon reminded me of the Humunculi from Fullmetal Alchemis (it's an anime tv show). Basically, they represent the seven deadly sins.

Finally happened to chance upon issue 8 of the MLP comic with this variant cover here in Singapore, going for more than double for what the comics usually retail for. Still splurged on it anyway; the artwork means a lot to me.

And if that certain Applejack, Luna and Chrysalis comic existed somewhere (let's say in Equestria), what could possibly the title of that story arc?

And it would be called Between a Moon and a Hive Queen: 127 Apples.

I've said it a million times and I'll say it a million times more. 
Retconning Nightmare Moon from Luna's darkside to an alien parasite who struck in a moment of emotional weakness, LESSENED the story for me! It made me able to enjoy it LESS.

Nightmares (yes plural) being the dark side of that pony, rather than a parasite, and ultimate being a CORRUPT version of that pony (but ultimately nothing that wasn't already there), rather than being something foreign, is a MAJOR basis for my fanfiction series Pony POV Series tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php… And ponies having to ACCEPT that. I even had a comedy with TONS of the most unlikely characters going Nightmare (it was overwhelmingly loved).

Well, the sheer size of this fanwork is certainly impressive. I can not promise I will give it a try, though. Discorded Whooves is already testing my tolerance to the dark fanfic genre, and I found myself losing interest in the Silent Ponyville series once it was Celestia's turn to get a sordid backstory.

I think the Comics is meant to be taken as optional canon. Personally, I would consider that the story we read would be tone-down in-universe from the actual events, a cover-story to prevent panic and horror among the population.

Aw shucks. I live in Singapore, so it will be next to impossible for me to get to a convention...

Hopefully you can sell it over the internet or something. I don't mind shipping fees as long as they aren't absurd.
