Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:
1. WHERE IS IT SOLD? This will be sold along all the other comics

Holy unexpected turnout, Batman!
Last night I saw the entire comic, ready to hit the printers... colors, lettering, lay out and everything, including all the variant covers. I'm very proud to say that we've turned out a quality product, and I think you guys have no clue what you are in store for. I'm really hoping we please everybody out there, and the more I look at the final product, the more I think we may actually hit that goal.

A big THANK YOU to everyone that has pre-ordered the book. Comics run on sales, so this is a very big deal to those of us on the book!
