IDW Announces 'My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic' Comic By Katie Cook and Andy Price [SDCC]

If you're a member of the overlapping Venn Diagram of comic book readers and My Little Pony fans, then your prayers to Princess Celestia have been answered: During this morning's panel at Comic-Con International, IDW and Hasbro announced a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic comic series by Catie Cook and Andy Price, set to launch this November.

Cook's cute, cartoony style has made her a ComicsAlliance favorite, but as a writer, she's probably best known for her equally cute webcomic, Gronk. Either way, she's a huge fan of My Little Pony, as is Price.

Of course, a Friendship is Magic comic faces a bit more of a challenge than just being cute. One of the more interesting things about the show is how it managed to find a legion of fans outside of its target market -- namely, older viewers who were attracted to the show for its sharp wit, engaging characters and clean designs, myself included. It presents an interesting challenge, and I was able to ask editor Bobby Curnow about how IDW's version was going to approach it:

There! Now that you now know where to find the comic, all we have to do is wait til it pops up.

Andy Price (The artist behind the pony comic) has released a huge thank you message for all of our support over on his Deviant Art page. He even answered a few questions from the swarms of people buggin him, primarily clarifications:

His DA page will be the first place sneak peeks pop up when Hasbro/IDW O.K. it.
The comics will all be original stories, set in the same family friendly style as Friendship is Magic currently is.
Background fun stuff is in! (Derpy maybe? Derpy maybe)
The comic will be available at comic shops in the locations IDW Lists on their website. They offer digital, but he recommends picking up a physical copy.
All art is hand drawn.
