MLP issue 11... The Other Stallion! by andypriceart MLP issue 11... The Other Stallion! by andypriceart
Since the preview has hit for issue 11, here's a look at the original inks for the first appearance of a new character in MLP- from a flashback to when Shining Armor and Cadance were in high school, meet Buck Withers, big stallion on campus! Personally, I think he fits in well with characters such as Trixie and Gilda. Imagine James Spader in "pretty in Pink"... with four legs.

I expected Buck to be the same colors as Braeburn from the series rather than light purple on the coat and Blonde on the mane & Tail. I just read the 11th issue and it's... okay.

And now that the issue is out, allow me to congratulate you on yet another job well done! I loved all the details on the "Yearbook" cover, especially the shout-out to Quarterflash. Wow, I hadn't thought about them in years...

Well I'd quibble that Trixie (in her first ep) is an on stage entertainer who was dealing with some rather rude hecklers, I think that first shot up there is perfect..capturing everything about the personality in one picture!

And Rydell High....Grease reference, nice.

He reminds me of Flash Thompson.

Well, if media teaches anything, sooner or later, this bully will get exactly what he deserves.  I'll be definitely getting the next MLP comics to see what happens.

Makes me think of Flash Thompson and similar characters. Not sure how that fits with a stage magician bent on revenger or a powerful monster who actually defies her natural instincts to be with her best friend.

I think you miss the point- both of those characters boil down to being pompous jerks.

So do some of the "Mane Six". Gilda is actually a totally different case, even if many people just see her as a bully. Her behaviour is rather unnatural. While a Griffon is considered strong, brave, intelligent and loyal, the one "flaw" it has is that it is the natural enemy of horses, and will eat them, which likely includes all kinds of horse monsters and colorful miniature horses.  Hence the rarity of the Hippogriff, which is the offspring of a Griffon and a mare falling in love.

Doesn't mean that they have to be flat characters. Even if the show is just a long toy commercial. But then again, whoever decided to include a Griffon probably did not do research.

Ahh, so it's a minor villain in a sense of being an antagonist for the everyday life? Sounds interesting. Now I wonder that if Shining and Princess Cadence are in the same high school together, that we'll get see some other members of royalty as well. I was very impressed with what you did for the last arc, as #10 is my new-found favorite, and can't wait to see what you have in store for this new story.

But I digress, I can't see to see Issue 11 when it's out. Keep up the good work.
