    Default 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.

    Just got my copy of the issue earlier today and went straight to this article, very well written, always good to see positive things about the Brony/Pegasister fanbase, also its good to know IDW is just as happy & excited about the book as the fans are, glad Issue #1 Broke 100K and that issue #2 is getting solid numbers as well, overall I can't wait to see what else IDW, Katie, Andy, and the rest of the MLP:FIM comic team have in store for us this year! *I noticed they mentioned one shots, I'd love to see a Crusaders One-Shot myself*

    But yeah still loving this magazine, defiantly gonna read the rest of the articles as soon as I have the time to sit down and do so. Keep on rocking guys! You make an epic mag!
