Sunset Shimmer from MLP #9 sdcc edition by andypriceart Sunset Shimmer from MLP #9 sdcc edition by andypriceart
This is a panel taken from "The Fall of Sunset Shimmer" story that was released in the San Diego Comic Con exclusive edition of issue 9 of MLP:FIM, which gives a little back-story to Celestia's former student

This shows the uncolored art so that you can better read some of the book titles. Besides the nasty little special edition Sunset is holding in her hoof, one can see references to Fringe, Trek, DC, Shirley Jackson, Steve Martin, even Quantum Leap. This is how I keep myself entertained :)

For those of you that couldn't get this edition, the story will be reprinted this fall in the one-shot "Equestria Girls" annual.
Brush and ink, mechanical pens, Faber Casteel PITT pens on 11x17 Bristol Board

I originally imagined Sunset's backstory and fall from grace  to be similar to Anakin Skywalker or Satan from the Bible

"There is more than one of everything" - That is the tagline of the storyarc "Reflections" from MLP #17-20! Did we get a spoiler of this story so early on?

Wow so Sunset Shimmer is canon. I wonder if we'll see her in the show. A bit curious. Who fo you think makes for a better rival for Twilight, Sunset Shimmer or Trixie Lulamoon?

It's so nice to see so many Fringe references in these comics. I hardly even know anyone who has seen the show so I'm usually the one poking and prodding my friends to give it a try.
This panel especially got me really excited!

FRINGE is one the most impressive television shows I have seen ever. Noble did so many variations of Walter that I lost count, and each one was distinctive. Incredible work.

How Noble didn't get an Emmy for his performance is beyond me. If you want a real life fringe event, there's one right there.

What kind of library is she visiting!?

That's the forbidden section of the library in Celestia's school for gifted unicorns. Now, why Celestia would even HAVE those books in the first place is beyond me.

For safe keeping I would say. But why they would be public access, now that's another question!
Reply
:iconpersona22:
Persona22 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2014
They are not for public access. Sunset Shimmer broke into that room, and when that pony behind the desk saw her she went right to Celestia. The next page in the comic after this shows Celestia saying to Sunset Shimmer that because of what she did right then, she's no longer to be her personal student.

If I recall the script correctly, it is the Dark Magics wing of the Starswirl the Bearded Library in Canterlot Castle

Yipes, I'm surprised Celestia would have that kind of place in Canterlot! At least not within easy access anyway.

I Actually want to see more of Sunset Shimmer, I hope the annual (besides this) has more in store for her, especially after the ending of the movie because I want to know what happen to her.

Awesome work on both the art and the references.

Is that the Necronomicon Ex Mortis?  The cursed Book of the Dead, wrapped in the flesh of a demon whose words bring DEATH AND DESTRUCTION TO ALL WHO READ THEM?!
