• My Little Pony the Movie Prequel Special Edition Now Available in Japan!

    For those of you collecting the Japanese Translation of the IDW Comics, the My Little Pony: The Movie Prequel Trade Paperback has officially been released in Japan! (Order here from Amazon Japan)

    While the cover for this volume uses the films, marketing assets, don't let that fool you into thinking a ton of effort was put into making this volume stand out from the previous comic collections put out by Phase 6. They really made this volume live up to the "Special Edition" part of the title.

    To start, this edition collects not only the 4 issue My Little Pony: The Movie Prequel comic mini-series (by Ted Anderson, Andy Price, and Heather Breckel) but also collects My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic issues #67 and #68 (by Jeremy Whitley, Andy Price, and Heather Breckel). Those issues contain the Two Part "Tempest's Tale" follow-up comic starring Tempest Shadow as she adjusts to life after the Storm King. This is the first time that story has been published internationally!

    Second, when My Little Pony The Movie was released in Japan, a Japanese Original Language Comic was created and published by Phase 6. This manga tells the story of what the Mane 6 were up to right before the events of the movie.

    If that isn't enough to entice everyone in the world to buy this comic (Order here from Amazon Japan) then this last point absolutely should. Unlike its American counterpart from IDW Publishing, this trade paperback collection is published as a full sized comic.

    Does all of them above make it the best version of the My Little Pony: The Movie Prequel Trade Paperback? Yes, yes it does. (Order here from Amazon Japan)
