BC Mag #2: Betting On The Ponies

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Rick Verbanas

My mother always warned against betting on the ponies. And, if someone offered you a bet earlier this year My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #1 would outsell the best-selling X-title for Marvel Comics, you would have probably laughed in their face. But, who is getting the last laugh?

”I outsold Uncanny X-Men,” Katie Cook, writer of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic series, announced to cheers at the New York Comic Con in October. The first issue of the new IDW Publishing comic series, starring Twilight, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie, sold out of a 100,000-copy print run through Diamond Comics Distributors. In fact, My Little Pony #1 ranked 15th overall in November, and 1st among non-Marvel/DC titles. It beat out all but one of the Marvel Now relaunch #2 issues, as well as Batman “Death of the Family” tie-ins.
