In addition to these publications, IDW has also published several one-off issues. The comics follow the studious Twilight Sparkle originally a unicorn, later given a pair of wings and her friends in adventures throughout the empire of Equestria.
Though the comic, like the TV series, is aimed at young children, the writers and artists have consistently taken risks, including expanding Sombra's storyline, the Friendship is Magic miniseries, introducing LGBT characters, and more. They have presented complex, multi-issue story arcs, and executed them well, and included material to appeal to the broad older fandom , featuring cultural references and show elements enjoyed by them.
Subsequent issues were monthly best sellers and represented IDW's highest-selling property. Journalists in the comic industry noted that with the older fans likely buying comics for the first time in many years, along with child fans purchasing comic books for the first time, the success of the My Little Pony comic could aid the ailing industry.
The first issue was highly praised for capturing the spirit of the characters and presentation of the show while providing a good introduction to its mythos for those who were unfamiliar with it. Hasbro 's My Little Pony franchise, started in the s, has had several animated television series and direct-to-video movies to help promote and sell the associated toy line collection; over the years, there have been four "generations" of designs and associated characters and setting.
Her characters were designed to challenge the norm of girl stereotypes while still keeping the archetypes as familiar figures.
Faust worked with several former co-writers from her previous shows including her husband and animator Craig McCracken , and with the directors at DHX Media 's 2D animation studio formerly Studio B Productions in Vancouver, British Columbia, where the show would be produced to fill out the world.
The resulting show, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic , was well received by parents, but found another unexpected target audience through the Internet photo-board, 4chan , primarily adult males from 13 to 35 years old. Quickly expanding through the Internet, the fandom came to use the term "brony" a portmanteau of "bro" and "pony" to describe themselves. One such avenue was the creation of a comic series; there had previously been no mass-market My Little Pony comics, albeit it does have "stock comics" featured in various licensed children's magazines such as Sparkle World , which even continues to do so.
Joe and Transformers comics, where it initially met some skepticism. Katie Cook and Andy Price were announced as the first arc's writer and illustrator, respectively; Cook had previous experience at both DC Comics and Marvel Comics , along with her own webcomic "Gronk", while Price had been involved with DC and the Batman Archives series. Cook aimed to write the stories for the comic to be something that she herself would enjoy "as a Pony fan and an all-ages writer", and planned to continue in the spirit of the show,  avoiding the feel of a "freebie Barbie comic" that would otherwise be packaged with toys.
Price has stated that Hasbro does give them freedom to write and draw the comic as they see fit, typically only asking for changes to achieve "a little bit more show accuracy".

The comics take place in the same fictional universe as the television show, in the land of Equestria which is populated primarily by ponies including unicorns and pegasi , along with numerous other sentient and non-sentient creatures. The primary characters of the comic include:. The series provides stories based on the established fictional universe of Friendship Is Magic TV series; the comic usually follows the TV series' canon, but the show doesn't technically follow comic canon. In addition to monthly single issue releases, IDW has also published collected volumes covering the individual story arcs.
The series is typically written in story arcs that span either two or four issues apiece; Katie Cook and Andy Price write and illustrate the first arc, respectively, while Heather Nuhfer and Amy Mebberson perform the same on the second. Friendship Is Magic chronologically occur alongside the TV series, featuring characters and elements introduced in later seasons.
For example, the first four-issue story includes the return of Queen Chrysalis of the Changelings, a major villain introduced in " A Canterlot Wedding ", the finale of the TV series' season 2. The issues will be developed in collaboration with Hasbro and would include having both a large arc interspersed among slice-of-life stories. My Little Pony: Micro-series is a companion series of single-issue stories that each focus on a single main character. It ran between February and December for 10 issues.

IDW had originally planned to publish six issues, one for each pony in Twilight Sparkle's circle of friends; however, their success prompted Curnow to state that the series would be extended to feature supporting characters from the TV series. Micro-series was an idea born out from comic writer Thom Zahler. Curnow later contacted Zahler and asked him to pitch stories for a smaller series; one such pitch included a crossover with Mars Attacks!
The monthly Friends Forever series consisted of single-issue stories, each focusing on a different pair of characters, including the main cast as well as fan-popular minor and background characters. The Friends Forever series debuted in January and ended in April after 38 issues. The Legends of Magic series replaced the Friends Forever series starting in April and running through March for a total of 12 issues, with an annual for the series being released in April It focuses on stories that cover the mythological history of Equestria and development of magic in the land that has been only briefly touched on within the animated series, such as the character of Star Swirl the Bearded and other key figures.
The Ponyville Mysteries mini-series succeeded Legends of Magic starting in May , and ran until September for a total of five issues. Like the series of chapter books of the same name published by LB Kids , each issue follows the Cutie Mark Crusaders as they solve mysteries around Ponyville.
