MLP:FIM Page 3 issue 1 by andypriceart MLP:FIM Page 3 issue 1 by andypriceart
Since it has been put on public display at the MLP Project going on right now in New York, I'm also going to leak this page. This is page 3 from Issue 1 of MLP: FIM. Original art done with pencil/india ink on 11x17 Bristol board. Colors by Heather Breckel, script by Katie Cook!

Some goodies to look for: A Parasprite, Snowflake, Owlowicious, Mayor Mare, Cranky Doodle Donkey, a shout-out to original MLP Firefly from the ponies "established 1982", the Blues Brothers, Iron Will drumming up business, Angel, Philomena, Carrot Top, Silver Spoon, a Dan Fogelberg shout-out, Thomas Magnum (Magnum PI), Dr Whooves, Earl Hickey (My Name is Earl), Ace the Tennis Player, Tank, a certain klutzy muffin-loving pegasus, Screwball, myself, my wife, Katie Cook, and six little cats named Sam, Spooky, Tabitha, Boris, Bela, and Mina

I think that covers it all (whew!)

If you don't know who the Blues Brothers are, you may wish to look them up. John Belushi and Dan Akroyd from SNL had a singing group and a very big movie.

This page really reminds me of Phil Foglio's style. Cluttered with little details and jokes. Especially Myth Adventures.

you could do a "where's waldo" MLP style book, but with "Where's Derpy" in place of waldo. I don't doubt the possibilities of it selling well.

Awesome comic guys, I admit the art style threw me off a bit (I'm used to the vector style from the show) but I got used to it quickly enough helped much by the writing of the story. Great job, keep it up!
