Since it has been put on public display at the MLP Project going on right now in New York, I'm also going to leak this page. This is page 3 from Issue 1 of MLP: FIM. Original art done with pencil/india ink on 11x17 Bristol board. Colors by Heather Breckel, script by Katie Cook!

Some goodies to look for: A Parasprite, Snowflake, Owlowicious, Mayor Mare, Cranky Doodle Donkey, a shout-out to original MLP Firefly from the ponies "established 1982", the Blues Brothers, Iron Will drumming up business, Angel, Philomena, Carrot Top, Silver Spoon, a Dan Fogelberg shout-out, Thomas Magnum (Magnum PI), Dr Whooves, Earl Hickey (My Name is Earl), Ace the Tennis Player, Tank, a certain klutzy muffin-loving pegasus, Screwball, myself, my wife, Katie Cook, and six little cats named Sam, Spooky, Tabitha, Boris, Bela, and Mina

I think that covers it all (whew!)

Oh, what did you do, Bulk Biceps? Okay, so the pony is mad at the rat for eating cherries and the cat wants to eat the rat? So many cameos! I love how you incorporate them all seamlessly into one scene and manage the show how the Changelings are impersonating them as well.

If you don't know who the Blues Brothers are, you may wish to look them up. John Belushi and Dan Akroyd from SNL had a singing group and a very big movie.

This page really reminds me of Phil Foglio's style. Cluttered with little details and jokes. Especially Myth Adventures.

you could do a "where's waldo" MLP style book, but with "Where's Derpy" in place of waldo. I don't doubt the possibilities of it selling well.
