If you cannot really comprehend the anology it means that just because everyone does something stupid it doesn't mean that you cannot take issue with someone doing something stupid.
IE just because every comic book cover ever has been a lie, does not mean you cannot take issue with it.
But then again, most people here are on the retard end of the bell curve.

No I understood what he was getting at perfectly.
But the example he used to promote it wasn't applicable to comics. There is no common ground between niggers and comic book covers that makes the analogy work.

Wasn't complaining about the point.
Its just redundant to point out considering its a staple of the industry, much like people coming back from the dead is.

If it is comprehensible and fits the point then I fail to see how it is shitty. Maybe because everyone here is on the wrong end of the autism spectrum that using the word rape triggered their niggers, but the analogy works.

For the comic industry it's the other way around.

Comic book fans act in a violent mob when something doesn't pander to them or go their way. And the industry isn't stealing from their fans, their fans constantly throw money at them because they're easy to please and even when they're dissatisfied they'll continue to read and discuss what you're making.

I didn't know /mlp/ was this stupid.

Storytimes are actually part of the reason I ever started buying comics. Someone did it for issue #1 of pony and it was good enough that I bought it to see it in print. I skip on the ones I don't like, but I really do like how they look physically.
I doubt most people buy them, but some get into comics through them so I wouldn't say your statement is wholly true.

Not as good as I had hoped, but better than I had feared.

The characters were treated relatively fairly, it's been a long time since we've had a Dash this good in the comics. Spitfire was OK too, especially the callback explaining her behavior in WA.

I absolutely love the art, it's adorable as fuck, but the artist should probably watch the show before trying to draw any more backgrounds.

Sadly, beyond that it didn't have that much to it, I didn't find it particularly funny or interesting, so maybe a 7/10
>>
>>20603841
>So is Scootaloo just physically disabled in this comic?
Late bloomer/possibly disabled.

>Why wasn't she in the class on the second day?
Since the class takes place in Cloudsdale, Scootaloo probably wasn't signed up. Maybe if they had something closer to Ponyville.
>>
>>20603842
>FF#1 is still worse then this, right?
That issue still sold much more than Andy Price and Katie Cook's Rarity and AJ's FF comic, despite the previews and reader feedback warning everyone about how bad was the first FF comic.

Think about it.

It's really hard to beat FF1. You would have to purposely try to be that bad.

Well... it's kinda obvious who were the real readers and who are the samefag shills desperately trying to apply damage control.

Would you faggots die if you just admited the comic was just plain bad?

Negative feedback is also a very important aspect of comic industry faggots. Unless the editorial is told about what the fuck is it doing wrong with one license, everyone there will just assume they are doing awesome and will have no reason to correct mistakes and learn from them.
>>
>>20603841

The name, junior flyers summer camp, tells us it's probably a paid camp. Plus it's located in Cloudsdale, quite a long way from Ponyville.

Scootaloo is definitely a late bloomer, both in getting her cutie mark and flight, but it's uncertain whether she's disabled or not. Fluttershy was pretty fucking terrible at flying when she earned her cutie mark, so Scootaloo might not be that far behind her.
>>
>>20603895
>I used to buy the comics, but I practically stopped six months ago.
I stopped buying the comics when I saw Flash Sentry being shoehorned in Luna's Micro.

I have never seen any reason to want to buy them again, and lately I haven't even been motivated to download the free scans.

Think about it: not even having the comic for free can make me want it anymore.

There's a difference between bringing up a problem in a comic or discussing the structure of a comic than just saying it's shit and insulting anyone that disagrees with you.

Literally none of the post against this comic could be used to help improve the comic and just looks like angry post on an image board.
If you were in the industry would you want to listen to someone insulting you or someone telling you how you can improve?

And out of all the places to promote a comic why do you think someone would come to /mlp/ of all places to do it?

No, but I do know that certain assholes who really like to promote and defend the comic for free frequent this site to apply damage control, create fake hype and pick fights/ try to recruit their own leejiuun to make them fight their whine internet grudges for them.

>Even your heroes can have FLAWS.
Heh, if only some of /mlp/ got that.

Anyway, pretty gud, it's of course a predictable retool of "drill sergeant nasty don't know how to kid", but it was okay.
I have the nasty feeling that if Meghan would have wrote it, it would've featured TWILIGHT and Dash in Spitfire's position, but I'm glad we got this instead.

Dash being good with kids like that makes sense since after all they want to learn to fly and that's all she know.

Pretty gud 8 R.I.P Ted Anderson DashXLoopDeLoop porn when/10.
>>
>>20603950
Because it is discussed every time some asshole brings out names like soundmonkey44, illustrious q, murrisson and nk snork.

You don't like the comic? Then you are automatically murrisson samefagging over and over and if you disagree you are automatically autistic (and murrisson as well)

just yesterday we had a funny bitchfest when some assblasted samefags were complaining about the new thread watcher, since now it shows the number of individual posters present on every thread.
They whined and whined and whined because they can't samefag anymore and tried their best to pretend it was a flawled, unreliable option that proved nothing, etc.

>>
>>20603801
Mixed feelings. I though the story was adorable and added a bit more to Spitfire and Rainbow Dash. But it was rather predictable and unoriginal as fuck sometimes. Same for the artstyle, it felt nicely expressive and adorable at some points and utterly wrong and unfitting at others. Plus that it seems the artist couldn't grasp much of the background style concepts of the show.

6/10 for the mere fact that I could find enjoyment in it. If not I'd score it worse.

And if you say anything positive about the comic, you're automatically soundmonkey44, a hasbro shill and a shiteater. And when you disagree, you're automatically a samefag who should be ridiculed. Anything you say is damage control and can never be an honest opinion, cause you're opinion a shit.

You can say positive things when the comic is great.
Despite /mlp/'s hate against Price and Cook, the locals still will agree that Rarity's micro and Big mac's gazebo arc were the best oficcial comics ever made.

But butting in to say that a piece of shit is great, and splitting hairs to rationalize shit as good? Yeah, definitely shilling no matter how mad you get.

Nope.
Things aren't "partially" anything, things are either good or bad.

So you can take your "It wasn't great but the bad parts weren't so bad so it was actually great" mental gym back to the round stable, IDW boards, equestria Daily, Bronybooru or wherever you came from.

I really like this artstyle, I feel like it would look really smooth animated. It's a lot curvier and has a better flow than the usual FIM style, and gives all of the characters a better range of expression. Also, the story was p good, not too terrible for anyone. easily 7/10.

Yeah, this is true.
They thought they were better than the show.
Keyword: were, as in "not anymore"

Anything they made after the gazebo arc varied from mediocre to just plain shit.
But before of it? Genuinely great stuff, and one of the reasons why they are so hated now.

We already know they are capable to do awesome stuff... when they want to.

Very underwhelming comic.
>>
>>20604153
When I did buy them, I bought them because they were simple adventures or tried to help characters that I feel didn't get as much attention as they should. Like the Rarity micro, it wasn't trying to be deep or some shit. It was just a really fun comic to read. Then there's the Nightmarity arc, which has that part with Spike that is probably one of my favorite moments in the overall franchise.
>>20604160
I've only made like two or three posts at the IDW forums when I feel like something needed to be said.

I enjoy 1 out of 5 of the current comics, give or take. This is one of those I enjoy.

>>20604153
Same reason as I like the show, cute ponies doing cute things. Meta drama and some issues that really seem to get on /mlp/'s nerves don't bother me as much, but I try and stay aware of the comic's shortcoming's. I've skipped out on a bunch of physicals I didn't like after storytiming them, but tend to like the ones I bought a little more after reading them away from here.
Oddly enough the same seems to happen if I dislike an episode first time around in the stream and watch it later on the iTunes rip.

Spike really shines in these comics when done well. FF#3 is another example that took me by surprise. It's an example of a Spike I doubt we'll ever see on the show.

One thing that's great about /mlp/ is that you can spek your mind here, no matter if you are a normal person or a shill.
The Round Stable has rules that forbid any opinion that doesn't suit their own, and all posts are reviewed by one of it's femnazi mods for approval before it could get posted.
if they don't like your opinion they will not let you post it, and if you don't learn to accept their opinion as the only correct truth, they will ban you.

Meanwhile at /mlp/ you can shill and be an annoying shiteater if you want to, and while you will be called names for it, at least you still can post whatever dumb opinion you want.
>>
>>20604104
No.

Say what you want, but I admit it was Reflections that hit the final nail in the coffin for the comics to me. I had enjoyed all of Cook and Price's work up until that point, I think the Luna Micro was the last thing before that arc was published that they had worked on, and I loved it. When this arc released it's second issue, it became clear they really didn't give a shit about learning from their mistakes, couldn't breath air outside their comfort zone and where confirmed to be as biased as many speculated them to be. And also this arc revealed Bobby Curnow's amazing unproffesionalism, the Ted Anderson shit cemented it.

So, why give a shit about something the people behind it are not really putting the best effort behind for. Specially when it shows in their work.
>>
>>20604222
What happened? Did they just get too comfortable with themselves and the hype? Did shiteaters really help them nit change?
>>
>>20604160
Outside of here I sometimes pop up on Roundstable and the IDW forums and post what I found enjoyable and what wasn't enjoyable from an issue. But regardless of all the samefaggotry and hasdroning accusations that now plague this threads outside the occasional shipping infestations, this remains the best place to discuss the comics IMO.

>Did they just get too comfortable with themselves
This, mostly.

They're also experts at turning a blind eye towards critique, I doubt shiteaters even played a significant role, it doesn't matter if they're 1/1000 or 1/10 of the readers, since they ignore everyone else.

But mostly they got too full of themselves, take for example such a simple thing as the Observer that Price draws in the background, he started off as a silhouette, then a pony in a crowd, then he was in the front-row all of a sudden during Luna micro IIRC, and in reflections he's given him a speaking role and put him on the cover. They've lost focus of the pony they're supposed to be doing, and are instead doing their own form of referential circlejerking.

I guess another thing is that people were OK with their misrepresentation of for example Pinkie and especially RD in favor of AJ and Rarity, thinking it was either a one-time thing or an accident, thinking their time would come eventually. Things never changed though, and they're still shitting on Dash as much as they can, and grabbing any AJ or Rarity issue they can, it's no wonder people are getting fed up.

Theres a difference between an opinion and critique. Critique is meant to weigh up pros and cons, opinions have room to be far less sophisticated.
As far as I've been able to tell, most people here have been classing their views on it as "critique", when all they said was "ITS SHIT!!!"

I guess the difference is that this was a small, "safe" tornado (that took RD 10 minutes to whip up), while the one in WA took the combined effort of RD and Thundercunt and then spiraled out of control because they pushed too hard. Small fire in your backyard VS setting your house on fire.

The quality has been dropping by leaps, both on the visual and story areas.

Rather than attempting to fix the problem, she's trying to convince everyone that this is normal and even gives an absurdly huge loses margin to pretend there's nothing to be worried about.

Still better than other IDW titles. It's not capeshit.

In the context of IDW's other comics, even with greatly reduced sales relative to launch, My Little Pony is still in the top rankings of sales for the company. Breckel is giving a baseline target because it would have to significantly underperform other IDW titles to warrant the axe.

Walking Dead isn't capeshit. Sure it has a tv show, but this does too. It's not like they advertise their comics either.

No, they're not doomed. They're doomed to mediocrity if anything. Seems like with at least this series, they try to find the bare minimum to accomplish.

Comic industry was doomed a long time ago. Licenses and tradition is all that really keeps it alive.

I kind of would like a reboot of the pony comics.

It's been a while since I read their Samurai jack or Godzilla comic, not to mention TF, but they do have some talented people, who are fans. With ponies they have troubles finding these people. It's like they don't have a plan for them. Maybe 5-part stories would be enough? I don't know. And I liked the newest FF and I think they do have people, who can deliver like Nuhfer (Cook and Price are too narrow as we can see with their every comic).

Welcome to the new age of the comics, only shorts arc alloweb. If you want something like that read DC or Marvel comic or a manga, not a comic for girls
>>
>>20605533
One-issue arcs are slow death for them. The point is to atract the reader with something big and don't let go until the final issue. That's why we have cliffnahgers. I guess smaller stories can go to FF but what about the ongoing? I don't even know what's coming. The two series just kinda blend together now. What were the first two arcs too exhausting?
>>
>>20605558
The problem is that Cook can't write a four issue arc. She does nothing with three issues and jams everything into the last one. Even Curnow acknowledged this.
>>
>>20605558
First two four parters were kind of a big way to celebrate the start of the comics. They do four parters more sparingly due to writers not always having ideas meant for four issues, and IDW wants to use four parters sparingly, like how each season only has one or two two parters.

Actually, the way as they have handled bigger story arcs lately is Curnow's cue to hire better, more competent writers.

Katie Cook is living off her past decent stories as for now and she already made very clear how she has no intention to ever step outside of her safety zone, so all of her future stories will be nothing but minor variations of the same old formula..

At least Murrison has been useful for something.

The writing was decent enough and the art style was pretty cute if a tad obnoxious, but I really wish this guy had done some research.

How many comics do you think keep the same amount of sales after their second year?

What we're seeing now is just a leveling out of sales to a core demographic of fans who will stick with the franchise now that the fad is mostly gone. MLP:FiM peaked at the end of S2, shortly after which #1 was released.

It's not just the comics, it's the entire fandom, and blaming it solely on a perceived drop in quality seems a bit too easy and convenient.

We should take cosnistent mainstream popularity with the original target audience into account though. Those will still boost ratings of the show, and toy sales.

The comics however, even though there's reports that they're popular with children too, are largely a product catering to the fandom. Their sales are going down. Fan projects and production of quality fanart is at an all time low. Cons are disappearing or congealing into few big ones.

Throw in Scootaloo for a foursome while you're at it, Dash has to make up for pushing her mail-delivery job on her, right? Scootaloo could help convince Loop, since Scoots wouldn't take much convincing (if all else fail, tell her she might get her cutie mark)

Almost every case is debatable including Rainbow's. She doesn't have any female crushes but that doesn't mean she's asexual.

Perhaps she's afraid of it? It would make a good story. I mean not afraid that she doesn't have a preference but she's afraid of romance.

Dash was sweet as a candy and Spitfire is not a bitch but a cute, guilty puppy. I agree that there's a lot of potential for more. Not necessarily romantic but we just need more Wonderbolts. Future writers better learn about canon Wonderbolts. There's only 11 of them.

There, I fixed it for you. Waifufaggotry is some autistic meme that spread over from /a/ in the early days of the board, it was of course a joke to begin with, but as always happens when autists find something autistic, they cling to it as if it was real.

Thank you.
But on top of that, a nor/mlp/erson cannot find the human figure erotic.
They don't belong here.

I haven't been keeping up with all the comics, but holy shit I'm really glad I never read that one. Also, why does it seem that most of the comics with Dash as the center of attention look like shit?

God I absolutely despise Round Stable.
It's the Neogaf of MLP.
What a shithole.

Cook and Price only write about a handful of characters they like. They don't like Dash.

Nuhfer ofter writes stories with Dash having an important role. They're good even if Dash is a little bit crazy in them.

Today's comic is good. I think Trixie/Dash one is not horrible but forgettable.

It's simple: they are not nor/mlp/eople.
Do you think that the Mudslimes taking over England are English?
Do you think that undocumented Mexican immigrants are U.S. citizens?
They are clearly not from here, I would imagine that they are either Ponychan remnants or sliding Has drones and other assorted shills.
