My Little Comics

 So all My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fans, including bronies, have probably already heard by now that a series of comics based on the series is set for release beginning in late November.  They are being brought forth by Katie Cook and IDW Publishing while Andy Price does the artwork.  There are a couple of things to note, however.  First and foremost, the demographic is now intentionally steered towards all ages, kind of like Phineas and Ferb in a way, so it is not directed towards young girls as consumers.  Bronies, rejoice.  Secondly, according to an interview with Katie Cook, the comic series is set to take place after the events of Season 2 while at the same time not getting mixed up with what has already been planned for Season 3.  This is at most interesting, that is to see how IDW is gonna worm around Hasbro's plans for the television series.  But I still have to wonder if Hasbro and Jayson Thiessen are gonna change the demographic of the TV series for Season 3.  I'd say caution is still to be taken because little kids could still watch the show at anytime, especially if season episodes get mixed in.  So for that, why change the demographic for the show at all?

Hopefully, any older male who picks up a few of these doesn't have to be considered a brony.  Nah, for the record, bronies only do crazy stuff like porn art.  So if I were to stupidly get my hands on a comic or two, I'm still not a brony.
