My Little Pony FiM Comic 2 page story from issue 4 by katiecandraw My Little Pony FiM Comic 2 page story from issue 4 by katiecandraw
The 2 page back-up story from issue 4 of IDW's My Little Pony Friendship is Magic comic... everyone asked where Spike and Celestia were during the duration of the story arc, so I made up an answer. (Story, inks and colors by me!)

The finished, lettered comic is available in the comic. Go read it!

This was great to read in the comics and is wonderful even without the lettering.

Shame it was so short...giant mutated chicken headed dragons that turn everything to stone...but for the limited space it was a short but fun bit.

Where can I read these comics? Do I have to buy them from a shop, or is there someplace on the net I can read them?

Do you appear to take "fan comic requests"?

Are those giant Cockatrices? How are a bunch of puny horses and a Baby Dragon able to defeat those? Aside from the fact that they are giants, the have a deadly stare and also a deadly breath.

I love all the details on these 2 pages.

Spike: "Now is not the time to ask I guess but how can you fly with a bandaged wing?"

Celestia: "By being awesome! Now let's save Canterlot!"

I'm gonna say right now that when I was reading issue 4, I literally said out loud when spike telling the story of this that "Wow, as much as I love the fact that Twilight Sparkle got to be awesome and had a quickening this issue, I almost wish I could have seen Spike's adventure."

Then I turned the page and... well, you can imagine my reaction, Katie. Thank you very much for this. <3

I just love this story, not just because it allows other stories happening because of the Secretariat event, but because Spike is doing awesome stuff. I'm always a fan of that.

Love Spike's role, but form what I hear he was still absent from the mane six's story line. I can't help but feel a little trepidation toward reading the graphic novel, as Spike is the one character of the group always chosen to be left behind. He's the lead character's assistant and closest friend, he's demonstrated that he can handle danger, and every time I see anything featuring the six ponies without the one member of their circle of friends who stands out due to superficial differences he can't change, it makes the ponies harder and harder to love. He looks awesome in these pages, but I'm not looking forward to another pony-exclusive adventure.

Well don't worry. I bet you already know, but just in case: the newest story arc, about Rarity getting kidnapped by the same essence that helped luna become Nightmare moon, confirmed that spike was going to be the hero. Heck, he joins the girls and luna on this quest.

Yeah, I saw that preview and it looks awesome! Even though Spike mysteriously disappeared after the fifth page... I just hope he's portrayed as he normally is, and not like the seven-year-old Merriwether Williams thinks he is. :)

They depicted him pretty well (I actually got the first comic in this arc). I also love the return of the fire ruby, that was a nice touch. Trust me, when I say, he is better than how he was depicted in those episodes.

Yeah, he always seems to disappear at the weirdest moments. Like in the season 3 finale, in the "True true friend" sequence. He was there the whole time, but when it's over and they go back to the library, he just disappears. I think that sometimes they just forget.

Which is especially weird because the chorus was pretty much about him.

:iconangel147196:
angel147196 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
Yeah.

Well maybe we could say that it was hard for him to keep up with the choreography, and so he was late getting back to the library. :giggle:

It was that heavy Element chest that held him up. :lol: But still, he got zero dialogue in the second half of the episode, zero thanks for being the only one still by Twilight's side when she was down, and wasn't part of either group hug. Things need to be fixed. He's not an assistant who loves to work, he's a kid who needs more love.

:iconangel147196:
angel147196 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
Haha.

I know, that was very odd. Suddenly spike became a mute. I agree about the zero thanks from twilight or anypony else in the end (despite being the one who lifted twilight's spirit and inspired her to help her friends). But I guess you can argue that he really didn't care, as long as she was happy. And yeah, he wasn't in the group hug, but at least he was invited to her coronation (and in the final group shot of the finale).

But here's the thing that irked me in the end: It's implied that twilight does love him. And Owl's Well showed spike said he thought he lost her love. Implying that she at one point said she loved him. Yet only twice has she said she loved someone. That's either the girls, or her bbbff. I hope that in season 4 she says it to him, because since Dragon quest established that he's family, she shouldn't be hesitant to say it.

I love that Spike is wearing an eye-patch over a clearly non-damaged eye. Because nothing says "Kneel before my awesomeness!" quite like a superfluous eye-patch....

Except, of course, for a Trident!
