ARC Graphic Novel Review: Mane Tales Vol. 1

My Little Pony Mane Tales Volume 1 by Thom Zahler

My rating: 3 of 5 stars :star :star :star

Thank you Diamond Book Distributors for providing me with an ARC copy for review.

I have read both volumes of My little Pony: Friendship is Magic and enjoyed them. The Mane Tales graphic novel is a collection of stories that each focus on one pony in particular-- but feature the other ponies as well. I liked this new approach to the MLP comics and really enjoyed something other than the big group storyline. At the same time, I didn't miss any of the characters since many were in each story.

Of course every story had a different lesson. MLP is always about the lessons, and I like that. It made me laugh out loud, Pinky Pie especially. I really hope they do more Mane Tales. It's something where you could pick up an issue and not miss anything, or read the graphic novel at a leisurely pace like I did. Getting bits of MLP at a time was really nice. It's not better or worse from the Friendship is Magic arc, it's just different
