    Issue: Main series #16
    Release date: Wed 5 Feb 2014
    Writer: Heather Nuhfer
    Artist: Amy Mebberson:
    Colourist: Heather Breckel

    Synopsis: "The literary madness continues as the Bookworm burrows deeper into everypony's favorite books! As more stories come to life, the only chance our ponies will have to save the day is to write their own version of the tale! Can their collaboration get on the same page? Read on!"

    As ComicsList states that issue #16 of the main series is coming out this Wednesday and Comics Alliance's preview is available (spoilery, obviously), it's probably time to start a thread for it. I haven't been able to find an image of the A cover by Sara Richard, so above are shown the B cover by Amy Mebberson and the RI cover by Bill Forster. Discuss away! :)

    I'm hoping I'll be able to find this issue in the Forbidden Planet next time I'm there...

    The Worcester meet clashed, so I wasn't able to pick up a paper copy; I'll order one of those. Thankfully Comixology is offering it digitally! I've had a quick read of this issue now and I'm really not sure what to make of it. Enough references to make Cook and Price cry, that's for sure. The last few pages seemed a bit weird, but I'll need another read to decide whether it's good-weird or bad-weird. Still not that fond of the bookworm-monster's design, though.

    Gosh, it's busy in here. :p All right, here's the Louder Yay review. This one got 7/10, as I felt it was a bit better than its predecessor but still not really a true great. The references were amusing, as was the Queen, but somehow the ending left me feeling a bit flat. Next month's issue will be the start of an arc I suspect may get rather more attention!

    Heyya, I picked up the second part yesterday, I did love the story but the ending wasn't brilliant, I won't say any details for obvious reasons, but there could've been a cooler ending if they gave it a little more thought :)

    If you want to say something in a comment but don't want to spoil other readers, you can use spoiler tags. :)

    And yes, I do rather agree with you about the ending: it did seem a little bit underwhelming.

    GAAAAAAAa! I love this comic so so much.

    So many references that my head hurt!

    I actually screamed very loudly when I saw Daenerys Targaryen pony and then again when they parodied Star Trek. Tolkein, Dr Who (the War Lord), any many many other references.

    I think my brain melted it was that good.

    Late to the party, but this was much better than #15 and it sorta rescued the arc for me. I say sorta because I still think this, like the pirate arc, was a bit mediocre. Next arc should be amazing though :D
