My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Volume 2 (My Little Pony - Heather Nuhfer, Amy Mebberson I received this story as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have to admit that growing up in the 80’s I was a huge My Little Pony fan. Lots of plastic ponies, a travel stable, a castle, the movies, and more. Years later my friend, and I tried to watch one of the My Little Pony movies from those days, and I went home and apologized to my parents it was so bad. I have to say that the new incarnation is a vast improvement over the original. The artwork in this comic is bright, and clean, and seemed to capture the characters well. The humor is well done, and engaging for both kids and those of us who are a little bit older (okay more than a little bit older). I really liked the themes of friendship and loyalty, and second chances. It was nicely handled so the sweeter parts of the story didn’t overwhelm the humor, and it kept it from feeling too cloying or too silly. I liked the solution to the problem, and the role characters had in the resolution. It felt nicely balanced, and worked well with the themes of the story. I wish My Little Pony had been more like this when I was younger. My apologies to my former, and beloved herd of plastic ponies.
