SDCC 2013 Announcement--My Little Pony Micro-Series #9

I was excited to hear that my new project was announced at the IDW panel at San Diego Comic-Con! I'll be writing the My Little Pony Micro-Series #9, featuring Spike.

Well, technically, I finished writing it long ago, but now I can talk about it! I've already seen some of the interior art by Agnes Garbowska, and I can't wait for everyone else to see it. I definitely asked her to draw a LOT of little creatures in the script, so hopefully she doesn't want to kill me at this point.

I wish I could have been at the panel in person, but I had to miss SDCC this year. At least I had the vicarious pleasure of reading about it on a couple MLP sites like Derpy Hooves News. The shot at the top left was taken of a slide on the screen at the panel. I believe we're seeing part of the Retailer Incentive cover there.

The Spike issue will be solicited for pre-order by comic shops in the September Diamond Previews catalog and will ship to stores in November 2013.
