    Forbidden Planet are currently taking orders for the upcoming FiM comic from IDW.
    http://forbiddenplanet.com/91670-my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-1/#product-description
    Delivery date is estimated to be 30th of November.
    I ordered mine instore, where they have 8 different covers available. A Mane-6 collector's box, a Subscriber Edition, and a special cover drawn by one of the artists from the show (name doesn't come to mind here).
    Have some cover art!

    So, I have 7 covers on order, have you signed up yet? How many covers do you want? Thoughts on the comic in general?

    Already subscribed to it. Not sure what cover it is, just whatever the online subbing gives me.
    Looking forward to receiving the first issue!

    The Mane 6 pack was about £18, but you don't pay until release, which is at the end of November.

    Hm. If I can't get it from my local store then I'll just get it online then. Excellent.

    Not all FB will carry the comic. I asked at the one in Cardiff, and they gave me a blank look, but the one in Bristol is where I ordered mine.

    Good idea, I'm not sure where it is though, I assume it's not too far from the station.

    I feel the need to ask, who is the comic targeting? Is it made especially for the Bronies or is it a family comic targeted at everyone, or one made just for the original targeted audience (Bronies again).

    Oh and will there be alien warships and a desperate battle to save Equestria?

    I know where it is in relation to the station. Probably a... 15-20 minute walk I'd guess. Maybe a bit less.
    Yes.

    Bronies for sure, comics aimed at children is not really a thing anymore, since they are now mainly collectable items (hence all these variant covers)
    and also comics stores, not really the best place for kids eh

    alien warships, so space magic?

    Shall have to see if the one in Birmingham will carry this one.
    Or I'll have to do my pouting puppy face to Bobby to get them at his store and collect them from him regularly.

    Question about the covers... Are they random or do you order which one specifically?

    Gah!! The closest Forbidden Planet to me is in London, which is a mission to get to for a comic. The easiest way for me to get it would be to order from the website, but they don't seem to have any cover information (and me being me, I'm pretty much sure I'll want to get all of them :rolleyes:) I'll keep my eye on the website, see if they have any more information closer to release.

    A. with variant covers, the comic store will get set amounts each equally or
    B. they well give more of some and less of each, if they are to be rare
    you wont get to choose if you order in the comic, the only way to get them all is that box

    its odd having 8 at once also, normally vairiants are used for special events, or if popular comics need reprints IE( Avx) having 4 vairants spaced over 4 months
    oh bronies, breaking the norm again it seems

    can allways pick them up and bring them to coffee meets once a month
