"Until we meet again."
For nearly four years, Katie Cook has been a staple of the MLP Comic series. Whether you love or hate her work, she has always been there. From the well received opening "Return of Queen Chrysalis" all the way through this month's "Rainbow Dash and Very Bad Day", her stories have always been something to look forward to year after year.
However as of next month her stories will go on hold for a while. Katie has announced on her twitter account that Friendship is Magic #42 is going to be her last story on the comic. She has a lot of other projects she is focusing on for 2016 and 2017, so there isn't much room left in her schedule for spending time in Ponyville.
I can't help but feel that it's the end of an era. A wonderful era filled with lots of great humor, and for some reason lots of cats, from one very talented comic artist.
We here at Equestria Daily hereby wish Katie all the best of luck on her future endeavors. And I would also like to personally thank Katie for encouraging me to pursue my dreams—not to mention my obsession of collecting all the variants for the comic—back in NYCC 2012. Without you, I would not be where I am today.
Katie, you will be missed.
You can check out Katie's full goodbye tweets after the break.
Special thanks to everyone who sent it in!
