The Return of QUEEN CHRYSALIS!

Also more questions: Is it canon? That's really up for the reader to decide, as far as I'm concerned. We ARE working in conjunction with Hasbro, so they have a say in all story elements, if that gives you a better perspective. This is the closest to show canon it's going to get, folks!

These are new stories? YES, not retellings of episodes, all new all original stories.

Is this only a mini-series? Not really. The first story arc is 4 issues, but there is already more planned! We have no intention of stopping!

Are you selling the original art? Yes, the original art will be up for sale after a little bit. Prices aren't set yet, offers will be taken. One thing I will say is that the 6 covers for issue one are to be sold as a complete set.

Are you doing all the art? Yes, I am doing all interior art. There are multiple artists doing the covers.

Back to work for me, see you in Cincinnati, Bronies & Pegasisters!

A bit late, but hooray for more Queen Chrysalis.
She's one of my three tied favs, along with Twilight Sparkle and Princess Luna!

Then you'll LOVE this story!! A lot of her personality is revealed here!

Yay for Chryssy as a villain in the comic. I do hope we eventually get original to the comic villains as well, but it's great to start with a class act like her.

I have another question: Will Chrysalis ever be called by her name? And if yes, will there be an explanation how they know what she is called?

I'm not going to give away details, but the first issue does canonically establish her name to indeed be Queen Chrysalis.

I wonder if any background ponies will have more speaking roles.

Were you contacted about Amy Mebberson's Derpy cover?

Oh noes! She's gonna drain ponies of love until they turn into heartless, pitiless monsters intent on nothing but inflicting as much misery upon the world as possible... They'll become lawyers... *shudder*

Will Prince Leon be referenced at some point? :P

No, we are going by show/Hasbro history only, we will not be acknowledging any fan-fiction. Nothing against it, but for a number of reasons, particularly legal, fan fiction is a completely separate thing from the show and the comics.
Toblerone-muncher's avatar
I don't think it's fanfiction if it was in an official Hasbro comic. Though not a particularly good one.

Oh! Leon! Blueblood's fake name when he gets turned into a foal after trying to overthrow Celestia and Luna in some crazy scheme in "Bringing Up BLueblood". ;3

Who?! (is confused*
djthomp's avatar
If I am getting the reference right, Prince Leon is Chameleon, a fan-theory bastard son of Shining Armor and Chrysalis who was conceived during the lead up to the royal wedding while Cadance was being impersonated.

Ah, I see now. Thankies for explaining that, bro.;)

(Or is it "sys"?)
Toblerone-muncher's avatar
Leon is a male Alicorn/Pegacorn and apparently Celestia's cousin. He's seen in some obscure French MLP comic. The regular horrible vector kind. [link]

Also, this comic establishes Prince Blueblood's first name as "Vladímir". I'm not expecting any of this to get referred to at any point in this comic, just wishful thinking. ;)

Whoops, looks like I didn't get it right!

Leon - he's Professional [link]

I now eagerly anticipate the return of our glorious Matriarch, Chrysalis, may she reign holier than her legs!

I can't wait to read it. I hope the writing is as good as the show.
