Review: ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’ #44: The Evil Of Ponies

Ponies of Dark Water Part 2” Our favorite ponies have gone bad and are loving every minute of it! When Twilight seeks to conquer Equestria for herself, the Cutie Mark Crusaders may be the only hope for salvation!


Trouble keeps adding up as the Mane Six keep indulging their dark sides. Of course Pinkie Pie’s dark side really isn’t really evil, as she’s just forcing people to be entertained whether they like it or not. It kind of makes her act like the Joker except without using guns. Wait, she does have the party cannon.

Twilight and Rarity on the other hand are an actual threats and Luna even has to step in and go head to head with Rarity to stop her from destroying the place. Also, Fluttershy is leading an army of battle hungry animals. Yes, you read it right. This issue is insane with all the mayhem which is created and Thom Zahler should give himself a hand for it.


My Little Pony


Tom Fleecs’ art really helps to show all the chaos which is unfolding. The pop culture Easter eggs which make the series so much fun are back in full force as well. Also, the final page is a fantastic splash page which many fans were overjoyed to witness.


The story is solid with all of the characters going bad and it ends with some actual tension with the cliffhanger. Now all the creative team needs to do is find a way to fix things. Usually it will involve magic, but given the surprises the team likes to use, it sometimes is hard to guess what will happen next. Hopefully it won’t get wrapped up too quickly but given the fact the next issue is the end of this story line there is a good chance this will happen.
