Page 1 of the 8-page leading comic in the anthology Bound Together! This comic was a collaboration by :iconjowybean: and myself. Jowy wrote the story and illustrated it, while I lettered and edited the script and story. It was great working with Jowy and you can see the whole thing in Bound Together! Pick it up at your favorite local convention. Preorders have been closed but you never know, we may take more mail orders in the future.

The next convention you'll be able to get it at is Trotcon, and we'll have it at Bronycon too, hopefully. :)

That's a good-looking dragon handing out . . . something or other, I can't actually tell. But, hey, it's a busy con, so you need to have something to attract attention to your little corner. Sex appeal is pretty traditional.

I don't trust that breezy booth. It seems suspicious.

Guards? What guards? I don't see any guards.

They're out of the frame.

It's a comic strip. You should really just relax. :)

Well, if you were reading a comic and one of the characters said "I just wish we could escape these radioactive mutant hamsters!", would you not then look around for the hamsters? 

Basically, it's poor storytelling. If the guards are going to be relevant, or used as a plot device, then they need to be at least shown somewhere. Similarly, if they have no relevance and aren't going to be shown, then they shouldn't be mentioned.

Not to mention that if all the guards are off panel and can't be seen, then the guards are terrible at their job and the pair have already escaped them anyway. Additionally, Twilight is acting as though the guards being there is having an impact on her, which can't possibly be true, since how can the guards be making it more crowded in their area if they aren't even around?

I'm just ribbing you, man. I was making a joke. Jowy wrote the story, and while I cleaned up a lot of the dialogue and helped him write the story, it was a point he had in the script. He may have just forgotten to draw them.

Go to a convention where we're selling the book, like Trotcon or Bronycon or Galacon. We may do another round of online orders in the future.

This looks like it's going to be an interesting comic. But didn't Twilight teleport REAAAAAALY far away during the Dragon Quest episode? Either way I think that yellow pony Twi bumped into is probably up to no good. Either way, I'm gonna start watchin' yall to see where this goes. ;)

Equestria is huge, isn't it? ;)

My point exactly. The location that Spike had followed the dragons too is tremendously far away from everything else. On the map of equestria there's an arrow to the south-east that reads "dragons be here" with consistent-looking terrain to what was shown in Dragon Quest. And Twilight was able to teleport herself and her friends back to ponyville from there. So unless this city is even farther away than that, I don't think that distance would be a real issue.

Well,
1. The map may be incorrect. ;) It still looks not correct enough to me.
2. The map may be correct, just immensely scaled down and only showing a part of Equestria.
3. Equestria may be a name of both a planet and a country, which means they escaped Equestria the country, and entered another one.
