MLP issue 1 variant cover by katiecandraw MLP issue 1 variant cover by katiecandraw
I did a quick variant cover for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1!

(I did three interlocking covers for issue 2... but for issue 1, I only did this piece. Be thankful, there's so many variants for issue 1 that even I can't keep track of them all!)

I wanted to do something simple, fun and related to the story (it's a known fact now that the Changeling Queen, Queen Chrysalis, is the main baddy in my 4 issue story arc).

It's funny… because I really wanted to use Derpy (can I officially call her that? I don't know…. but I LOVE the name and I think she's the cutest widdle pony there is… I love her crossed-eyes. She's charming as all heck) I originally put Rarity in the chrysalis, but then I threw in Dr. Whooves/Time Turner because I like to make fun of Dr. Who and I figured she'd be a TERRIBLE companion.... turns out everyone else already had that idea! HA! Bronies 1, Katie 0.

their expressions and the silliness of this is what makes this one of my favorite pieces from the comic series

Yes, you can totally say Derpy.

I love Derpy Hooves, but WHY is she in place of Rose Tyler? Rose is the B- Minus Time Traveler at best...

Ah, Derpy's expression is adorable- aaand there's the Doctor/Time Turner (that's his official name, right?) in a cocoon thing. Eep. Found your site through the Kotaku review of the first comic. Well done and thank-you, it sounds very nice indeed!

I heard the news yesterday Katie. Over 100K pre-orders?!? WOW! How awesome!!! I'll be sure to get a copy (or 2) for my daughter who at the moment is watching the show premiere right now. Oh, and I've counted 9 different covers, but I'm probably missing a few other exclusive retail outlet covers. Even Jill Thompson got on board for it! :) LOVE your cover for this Katie! Cuteness a-go-go.

Tell me, when I buy one of these comics, how much of the purchase price makes it to you, if any?
