The Return of QUEEN CHRYSALIS!

Also more questions: Is it canon? That's really up for the reader to decide, as far as I'm concerned. We ARE working in conjunction with Hasbro, so they have a say in all story elements, if that gives you a better perspective. This is the closest to show canon it's going to get, folks!

These are new stories? YES, not retellings of episodes, all new all original stories.

Is this only a mini-series? Not really. The first story arc is 4 issues, but there is already more planned! We have no intention of stopping!

Are you selling the original art? Yes, the original art will be up for sale after a little bit. Prices aren't set yet, offers will be taken. One thing I will say is that the 6 covers for issue one are to be sold as a complete set.

Are you doing all the art? Yes, I am doing all interior art. There are multiple artists doing the covers.

Back to work for me, see you in Cincinnati, Bronies & Pegasisters!

A bit late, but hooray for more Queen Chrysalis.
She's one of my three tied favs, along with Twilight Sparkle and Princess Luna!

Yay for Chryssy as a villain in the comic. I do hope we eventually get original to the comic villains as well, but it's great to start with a class act like her.

I have another question: Will Chrysalis ever be called by her name? And if yes, will there be an explanation how they know what she is called?

I'm not going to give away details, but the first issue does canonically establish her name to indeed be Queen Chrysalis.

No, we are going by show/Hasbro history only, we will not be acknowledging any fan-fiction. Nothing against it, but for a number of reasons, particularly legal, fan fiction is a completely separate thing from the show and the comics.

I don't think it's fanfiction if it was in an official Hasbro comic. Though not a particularly good one.

If I am getting the reference right, Prince Leon is Chameleon, a fan-theory bastard son of Shining Armor and Chrysalis who was conceived during the lead up to the royal wedding while Cadance was being impersonated.

Leon is a male Alicorn/Pegacorn and apparently Celestia's cousin. He's seen in some obscure French MLP comic. The regular horrible vector kind. [link]

Also, this comic establishes Prince Blueblood's first name as "Vladímir". I'm not expecting any of this to get referred to at any point in this comic, just wishful thinking. ;)

Season 2 has been good to villains. It brought back Nightmare Moon and introduced Discord, the windigoes and the changelings, to only name the big players.

Alright, Luna didn't turn evil again. But her new design and characterization were essentially a blend between the two sides of her we had previously seen. And that's definitely a plus in my opinion. It gives believability to her backstory and depth to her character.

Anyway, Queen Chrysalis... What is funny there is that she was just "the queen" in the season finale. Your comic will be the first Hasbro-approved story to give her that name. Good choice of a villain too. She does not threaten the world with eternal night/chaos/winter, could be defeated in many ways beside the Elements of Harmony and has to rely on minions. Also, she sings, but that probably doesn't translate well in comic form.

My only concern so far is that bit of information we got about Celestia. I hope she won't develop a bad habit of "being in another castle", if you know what I mean.

It is?! Wow, didn't KNOW that! I just assumed (which is why you never SHOULD assume ANYTHING, but check it OUT first!) that when they say they ship world-wide, that's what they meant!

And this is just a SUGGESTION on MY part, but if you have friends (online or otherwise) that live where the comics AREN'T region-locked, maybe you could get them to order them FOR you, then pay them back for the price of the comics and shipping.

Again, just a suggestion.;)

Despite being done in conjunction with Hasbro, I'd say it's not canon unless what you do is coordinated with the writers of the actual show, and can affect what they do. If there's continuity between the show and the comic, then it'd be canon, otherwise it's more of an alternate universe. Unless, of course, what you did was kept small, and could simply be slipped in between episodes of the show. But the return of Chrysalis is kind of a big thing, and I don't think they could just ignore that.

I wouldn't worry about being truly canon, though. Just have fun and make a good comic, and people will enjoy it. I look forward to it myself.

It'll be like the Star Wars novels, as close to canon as it gets. Boba Fett kills the Sarlacc and crawls out.
