My Little Pony Friends Forever #4, featuring Twilight Sparkle and Shining Armor, just hit comic shops on April 9, 2014. This is my second gig writing My Little Pony for IDW!
The regular cover shown here, along with interior art, is by the talented Amy Mebberson. I can't wait for everyone to see what a great job Amy (and colorist Heather Breckel) did on the story. I especially loved the character design of the dreaded "Crystal Ghost" featured in the issue.
As described in the solicitation for this issue, Twilight Sparkle plans to spend some much needed quality time with her
brother, Shining Armor, in the Crystal Empire. However, when a mysterious ghost starts haunting the castle, the siblings will have to use all of their combined monster knowledge to save the day!
You can check out preview pages over on Equestria Dail.
DaFu Yu and I will be at Awesome Con in Washington, DC on April 18th to the 20th. You can find us at Artist Alley table C-14 (just look for the listing for "Rob Anderson.")
We'll have copies of Rex, Zombie Killer #'s 1 through 3, plus the 2012 One-Shot. This is your chance to catch up before the final issue hits stores at the end of April!
I'll also have copies of the books I wrote for IDW -- My Little Pony Micro-Series #9 featuring Spike, and the just-released-this-week My Little Pony Friends Forever #4, featuring Twilight Sparkle and Shining Armor. I have rarer variant covers, as well as a number of the standard covers.
DaFu will also be showing off original art and doing sketch commissions as well.
It looks to be a great convention -- we hope to see you there!
