This is a panel taken from "The Fall of Sunset Shimmer" story that was released in the San Diego Comic Con exclusive edition of issue 9 of MLP:FIM, which gives a little back-story to Celestia's former student

This shows the uncolored art so that you can better read some of the book titles. Besides the nasty little special edition Sunset is holding in her hoof, one can see references to Fringe, Trek, DC, Shirley Jackson, Steve Martin, even Quantum Leap. This is how I keep myself entertained :)

For those of you that couldn't get this edition, the story will be reprinted this fall in the one-shot "Equestria Girls" annual.

Ah, the Necronomicon. The book who's name actually doesn' mean Book of the Dead, but everyone thinks so, because Lovecraft wasn't that good at latin

Crisis on Infinite Equestria and who was Megan? Omg I got that. I doubt many modern bronies know Megan.

I originally imagined Sunset's backstory and fall from grace  to be similar to Anakin Skywalker or Satan from the Bible

Andy I love your art on MLP! It's the only kind I'll buy! I especially love looking for all the "easter eggs!" Kudos!

"There is more than one of everything" - That is the tagline of the storyarc "Reflections" from MLP #17-20! Did we get a spoiler of this story so early on?

Wow so Sunset Shimmer is canon. I wonder if we'll see her in the show. A bit curious. Who fo you think makes for a better rival for Twilight, Sunset Shimmer or Trixie Lulamoon?

"Crossing Over", "The First Ponies", "There is More Than One of Everything"...
She's into some real deep stuff

And that's not even counting that she's reading the freaking Necronomicon right then!

The Necromonicon from the Evil Dead series! I saw that in the TellTale Games Poker Nights 2 gameplay, when Ash put the book up as a bounty!! ^^ Kudos for using the references in this scene!

Aww. I was even at Comic-con and I didn't know about this. Will there be any other way to get the extra comic?
