Review: IDW MLP #8

Once again I’ve been swept away with keeping busy.  All of June was running, as will be all of July.  Miki and I are on the road heading west for events, friend meetups and to get more interviews for Cowabunga Corner.  In all this I totally skipped out on reading issue 8 of My Little Pony when it was coming out.  I do not wish to fall behind in this, so once I realized this issue was skipped I dug it out to read.  Here is my review of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #8.

In recent issues of My Little Pony the moon was having problems as Nightmare Moon returned within Rairty.  Her friends, including Princess Luna went to the Moon to save her.  Only to wind up caught themselves.  Luna got away to warn all other ponies.  Spike tried to save the ponies and got caught.  Now we are looking at the final chapter of this mission to the Moon.

Luna returns and warns everyone, though within her she is feeling guilty for what’s happening.  How she once lost control and became Nightmare Moon.  Feeling her with fear of what will happen when the fight starts.  Back on the Moon, Twilight Sparkle and friends realize how powerful their friendship really is.  Spike has an escape plan which works out nicely as he goes to free the other Ponies from their cages.  Though Spike does forget the key, that is not the biggest problem they face as the guard stands in their way.   With a war going on back home, how will Twilight and her friends get back to help save Rarity?

That is answered in this issue with a good wrap up.  The first storyline in the MLP comics had me worried that this was going to become the Twilight Sparkle comic since everything wrapped up around her that time.  One of the big things for me this time was seeing how they wrapped up this story.  And really I like how they did it.  Everyone had their parts.  Luna learned some important lessons and every pony stood their ground.  Making this story one worth reading and enjoying.

Written by Heather Nuhfer with art by Amy Mebberson, this issue of My Little Pony has given me hope for the rest of the series.  That it will not just be one pony shining above all the others.  Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to read the next story line that Heather writes.  If you’re a fan of My Little Pony and have not picked up these comics, I do highly recommend looking into them.
