The news broke today that I will be doing 6 of the 8 different covers for issue 1 of MLP:FIM! These 6 different covers will each feature one of the Mane 6 prominently, with guest appearances by other characters as well. All 6 covers interlock to form one giant scene!
Worried about not being able to find all 6 covers? Then you can order the BOXED SET! Here's the article on Bleeding Cool, along with a slight peek at the Applejack cover!
www.bleedingcool.com/2012/08/1…

CONVENTION APPEARANCES CONFIRMED! Yes, I will be selling original art, prints, and doing con sketches at each show.
DragonCon- Atlanta Georgia, Aug 31-sep 3 (Tara Strong also appearing!)

MEGACON! -Orlando Florida March 2013 JUST CONFIRMED!

Also suffering through a kidney stone infection at the time being... blargh.

EDIT: As I understand it, all covers will be available at comic shops, and you should be able to preorder the boxed set. Check with your local comic shop, and get on the subscription list! Most comic shops offer discounts for joining!

Hi there :D That is absoulutely amazing, I'm looking forward to see the comics... but unfortunately I don't live in US, so there is some way to preorder them, and then send the article to a mailbox (some companies don't do that though). Would be a way to the international bronies like me to buy them without have to go to the US XD Thank you so much in advance, and good luck with your health issue :D

Just a quick heads up for those that want to pre-order the first issue or the box set, but don't have a local comic shop near them; The Midtown Comics website currently has issue one for only $1.99 (if you advance order) and the box set for only $16.24.
Their standard shipping (Economy Shipping) is only $4.99, so you're basically saving 3 bucks on the box set either way.

Ordered the boxed set from my local comics store.

(Plug: Comics Warehouse in Albuquerque is the best comic store in town. They're cool with it if you just go in to read continuity, as long as you buy anything.)

So, of the two you didn't do, one is a one-in-ten special and the other's for ordering from IDW? Does that mean I would be guaranteed to get all 8 if I ordered 10 from IDW? Is there a cheaper way to go about collecting all 8? This is starting to sound expensive...

Where can I pre-order the box-set? From IDW, or who? I think that THAT would be the EASIEST way for me, personally, to get ALL of the different covers, so I won't MISS any of them, the way that I have, unfortunately, missed the TMNT comic issues from them. (Speaking of, gotta get caufght UP on my Boys in Green soon.)

Plus which, that box-set box looks KILLER!

And my No. FAVE cover of the ones with the Mane 6? Applejack (ftw!), of course.;)

"Also suffering through a kidney stone infection at the time being... blargh."

Oh wow. Sorry to hear that. I can only imagine the excruciating pain you're going through... and having to urinate it out? *shudders*

I'm not squeamish about much, but that just seems... beyond absurdly painful.

As a three time sufferer of kidney stones, allow me to extend my sympathies.

Also, I am throwing money at the screen, but pone comics are not forthcoming.

Applejack is second best 'background pony' on her cover. [and no, this is a long-running joke for the uninformed.]

I am definitely liking the art and am looking forward to seeing the final product =D. I do have to say I'm a little disappointed with Bleeding Cool's coverage of the comic though. It had a few typos in it and it called MLP: FiM a "TV long commercial, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic". I'm really amused at the fact that they had two typos in the same sentence that they were trying to insult the show and its fans in. Seems like a pathetic attempt to try and insult fans but I thought you ought to know in case you didn't notice. Also I really hope the kidney stone thing gets better =/... never had that myself but I know some people that have had them and it wasn't fun.

As I understand it, Mr. Price will be collaborating with Catie Cook on the comic; Ms. Cook is both an artist and a writer, according to an article about it. The article doesn’t state specifically whether she is handling the writing, but my guess would be yes.

I believe she has a Deviantart page as well, but I can’t for the life of me dig up a link.
