The hiatus does weird things to people.
Some start drawing Rule 34. Others write fanfics of pairs they would have never imagined. Some others decide to program videogames. The more desperate ones open ask blogs. There's even the rare ones who decide to record podcasts to talk about the pony comics in a desperate attempt to fill their empty lives and find some meaning in the dark abyss.
I did (almost) all of those, and here's the result. I am putting together a post with all the reviews of the My Little Pony Micro series produced by IDW. In these podcasts me and my friends, Norman Sanzo and Silver Quill, talk the Micro series and what we consider to be the best and worst comics in it. Strap in for several hours of nothing but pony talk.
The way these ones are going to work, and the same with the next comic reviews, is going to be different. I am going to blatantly copy the same format that a local movie magazine uses and make a small recommendation at the end followed by the best and worst parts of the comic itself. I like that format, it kind of helps to get the point across really well.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 1#. TWILIGHT SPARKLE.
For those who know that there's no fear like the fear of success.
Best Part: The surprisingly emotional parallelisms between Twilight and Jade Singer.
Worst Part: The art style is worryingly distracting.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 2#. RAINBOW DASH.
For children of the 80s eyes-deep in acid.
Best Part: The unstoppable loyalty of Rainbow Dash's character.
Worst Part: The weirdness of the setting can neglect some readers.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 3#. RARITY.
For those who know who's Best Pony.
Best Part: Rarity, Rarity, Rarity, Rarity.
Worst Part: It's too short.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 4#. FLUTTERSHY.
For bit-nick critics with low demands.
Best Part: The genuinely inspired art style (and the nod to Salvador Dali).
Worst Part: The lack of punch of its actions.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 5#. PINKIE PIE.
For clowns of the world with a passion for life.
Best Part: Its beautifully emotional after taste.
Worst Part: Not having this type of Pinkie Pie outside of the Pinkie Pie-centric stories.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 6#. APPLEJACK.
For those who can't move on from Season One.
Best Part: The Apple Family...
Worst Part: ...except for Applejack.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 7#. CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS.
For the inner child who still flies in a cardboard spaceship.
Best Part: The gorgeously classic art style.
Worst Part: The very rushed conclusion.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 8#. PRINCESS CELESTIA.
For those who know that teachers are also people.
Best Part: The dignified portrayal of Princess Celestia.
Worst Part: The ending is way too kid friendly.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 9#. SPIKE.
For those who always root for the little dragon.
Best Part: Spike teaching the sea-monkeys with the help of Twilight's books.
Worst Part: It has the impact of a feather on a rock.
MICRO SERIES ISSUE 10#. PRINCESS LUNA.
For those who love to see their favorite characters suffer.
Best Part: Luna's tantrums, and Kibitz's character.
Worst Part: Reading the comic knowing this is the last of the Micro Series.
