New comic! It's been a while, but I'm back!
This was supposed to come out after the season 4 premiere, but I've been very busy and stressed out.

It was either me or Confucius that said "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a vicious ass raping at airport security." - Doug Stanhope.

First thing's first, I love the art style. It's very bright and quite lively. It works well the thick line approach. The one thing that kinda bugs me but not really is you mostly use side angles for most of it. The only break away from that is the 6th panel with a closeup a Twilight's face.

Now, I said "kinda but not really". In most cases, something like that would come off as amateur, but here it really helps the tone of the comic. It's about having to go through the slow, monotonous song and dance of airport travel. The use of side shots for most of it helps reinforce the mood of the strip.

As someone who's gone through what might of been one of the worst plane trips that didn't involve animals, I can't help but crack a sadistic smile out of this. The cheerful, bright colours of the comic juxtaposed against the drab mood of air travel sums up everything about air travel.

P.S. I hope that guard doesn't resort to full body cavity search... <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":X" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="400" title=":X (Mad)"/>

Oh, I sort of forgot to leave a comment here. Sorry. 

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your critique and I'd like to thank you for the positive words. 

Also, to go more in depth on the side angles. The original idea I had for this comic was to have Spike in the middle of every frame with the same expression and having the backgrounds change behind him instead to let the airport 'revolve' around him. Eventually, I changed his pose a lot throughout the panels to prevent it from looking boring and this resulted in the kind of boring composition.

I'll keep an eye out for it next time.

this stupid my friend told me to repost this WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will poop, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she pooped her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to poop all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to make her poop, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
toiler they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she exploded.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and poops you slowly, by farting on you
and watching you cry to death. Now send this to ten other rooms, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your toilet, pooping and farting.

I've decided to dub this.  It's too funny not to.

Air travel in a nutshell. Why I hate it so much. Good comic!
Guess twilight needed some money after what happened at ponyville season 4 (p.s RIP library)
