Would you be upset if humans appeared in the background of one of the upcoming IDW comics?

Trying to get Mr. Cunrow to make something a priority.
>>
It would be dumb
>>
Who are you?
>>
It's a bad idea.
>>
>>25351030

That would be awful, please no.
>>
>>25351030
It's a stupid idea.
Do it
>>
>>25351030
That would never happen.
>>
>>25351030
I wouldn't know. I don't waste my time with that shit, anyway.
>>
We don't need any big guys in our horse comics.
>>
>>25351030
it would make the comics shittier, which would be an incredible feat.
>>
This is not an idea that is going to be explored, I am just evaluating a response to an issue.
>>
>>25351156
As it currently stands I believe /mlp/ and most of the people who read the horse comics would regard it as a bad idea.
>>
At this point would anyone really be surprised?
>>
>>25351156
How would humans in pony comics even get past Hasbro approval?
>>
Predict how they would react

We had Equestria Girls already, what is the big deal?

>>25351205
I ask that about 30% of the issues.
>>
>>25351030
I really don't care at this point?
>>
>>25351253
they are not from equestria
>>
>>25351314
We had mutant apples in the comics that were caused by an alien comet.
>>
The reactions here are really paradox...

On one side most content here involves somehow humans (stories, pics...) and yet the majority of you fags hate the idea of Human in Equestria.


Same with other sides too...Human in Equestria stories are quite popular yet the idea of it is universally hated.
>>
>>25351321
apples are not humans m8
and aliens are not from equestria
>>
>>25351323
Humans are used mostly as a way of an viewer avatar. The ponies are so human like that it is pointless to have them in.

Funny enough humans existing is a more heavily debated topic in the /TFH/ generals.
>>
>>25351352
Humans aren't from Equestria either.
>>
>>25351108
That's easy 4U to say...
>>
>>25351030
I'm already completely upset about the comics. Since Curnow can't do shit as an editor, any artist can put as many humans in the background as they want. Nobody in IDW gives a fuck.
>>
>>25351030
I wouldn't be surprised. I don't think the fandom would care either.
>>
>>25351360
Then why dont you all just use anon pony as an reader avatar?

Pointless...? There are plenty of stories who show how diffrent ponies and humans are.
There would be enough ideas of how to establish humans as a meaningful race in equestria (technological advanced, warlike...).
>>
>>25351368
yes, that's my point
the only humans we know are from eqg and twilight didn't know their species
humans in the background would raise many questions that won't be even addressed
>>
>>25351425
Probably because it makes it easier to relate to by having actual human parts present.
>>
>>25351425
Humans are very pointless and really do not add anything to Equestria. Ponies already serve as a valid human equivalent.
>>
>>25351425
Ponies and humans really aren't that different.

Funny enough, your argument is why I actually feel humans would work really well in the TFH universe.
>>
>>25351314
Then why is it called equestrian girls stupid
>>
>>25351613
that's not how it works anon
>>
>>25351427
According to the latest comic the ponies also eat meat.
>>
>>25351671
I'm sure ponk says something about hotdogs in season 1 and there is something like meat in another episode in season 4 or 5

they are from equestria but they are not humans

>>25351030
Reveal thyself
>>
>>25351579
But if ponies and humans aren't that different, then whybeven use an human at all?
>>
>>25351959
Because Anon is meant to be a representation of the viewer.
>>
>>25351998
Then why does it matter if he is human or not?
>>
>>25352009
Verbs and certain actions. Also a lot of the stories explicitly make Anon an outsider.
>>
>>25351323
TFH is far more bitter about it because humans can actually add to the narrative in a meaningful way.
>>
>>25352027
Then make him an outsider pony or even a changeling.

>>25352048
None cares about a game that will never be finished.
>>
>>25352074
They got their funding, why wouldn't it?
>>
>>25352048
We are bitter about it because we don't want this game to become some kind of social commentary about predator vs prey and cattle farming.

Also, you expect FAUST to give that kind of material justice?
>>
>>25352127
because money is not enough obviously
>>
>>25352127
I heard that so many times...
>>
>>25351630
Pray tell senpai then how does it work
>>
>>25351030
Would be interesting.
>>
>>25351030

>implying Curnow gives a shit

Anon pls. He's just letting whoever he gets write/draw whatever pony crap they want, making sure it doesn't violate the comic rating (ie, nobody drawing Twilight ripping someone's head off), and sending it to the printers.

Anything not forbidden is allowed.
>>
>>25351030
The comics aren't canon
>>
>>25352143
Faust is good with basic ideas, world design, and making great characters.
Oh and picking more talented people to actually develop her ideas.
>>
>>25352510
So then does it matter?
>>
>>25352487
Nah, Hasbro is sending them notes to remove humans or any stuff that is against the show.
>>
>>25353900
They must have not caught this then.
>>
>>25351030
At this point I don't care.
>>
>>25351030
Do it. It's about time to break this camel's back.
>>
>>25354403
It's already broken.
>>
>>25351425
>There would be enough ideas of how to establish humans as a meaningful race in equestria (technological advanced, warlike...).

Here's actually part of the reason I'm opposed to humans (not just those Equestria Girls abominations, but actual humans) appearing in FiM.

If they did show up, I would want them to be portrayed as being fundamentally different from ponies - having a different worldview, with our own brand of success that doesn't necessarily jive well with the ponies' harmony-above-all-else vibe. If ponies are the standing for human-approximations in the show, then I'd like the human characters to be more alien from the ponies' perspective.

The problem is, the show can't do that. I mean, look at the track record so far for portraying other species:
>Changelings are the designated villain race
>Griffons live in a shithole until ponies tell them how to live right
>Yaks have permanent anger issues
>Zebras have barely appeared at all
>Breezies would literally be extinct if not for pony help

The producers have decided the ponies have to be shown as superior to other species. If humans were to show up, I'm afraid they'd either be another designated villain, portrayed as wrong until corrected by the ponies, or just be so pony-like they're basically ponies in different forms. None of those particularly interest me, and so I'd prefer to see them left out.
>>
I don't think anyone would care
>>
>>25355449
I would
>>
>>25355607
EQD wouldn't care they are who matters.
>>
>>25355614
I'm sure they would care
Even with shills they will have drama anyways
>>
>>25355650
The positive comments would outweigh the negative ones.
>>
>>25355820
that is still caring tho
>>
What would be a plausible scenario that would cause Hasbro to want to terminate their relationship with IDW, falling profits clearly doesn't matter Hasbro doesn't pay for the comic book production.

I will post humble bundle game codes in the thread for every answer I like. Especially if it involves Hasbro wanting to work with fans or fan startup companies.
>>
>>25355997
Wow people step your game up.
>>
>>25355997
It's the current humble bundle BTW.
>>
>>25355997
Probably something offensive...
>>
>>25355997
>Falling profits
Ultimately don't matter anyway because the MLP comic is still the highest seller and top earner regardless if it lost 10-20k readers over the course of it's life.
