How would you rate Friends Forever #38 out of 10 /mlp/?

And now that the Friends Forever series is finished, how do you feel about the comics in that collection?
Any in particular that stand out from the rest to you?

That exact cover on the right is also one of the Legends of Magic #3 covers, so they may have mixed that up somehow.

And the last synopsis revealed was the one for the second Movie prequel comic:

My Little Pony: The Movie Prequel #2
>Ted Anderson (w) • Andy Price (a & c)
>As My Little Pony: The Movie nears, discover the new characters that will change the course of Pony history in this series! In this issue, an eccentric group takes to the skies on the search for adventure and treasure!
>>
>>29903250
A bullshit story with Andy's decayed art and his trademarked bitter/angry ponies.

I thought the bitter ponies were Cook's fault, now I can finally see they were Andy's doing all along, who knows what happened to the guy to let it show through his work like this.

Anyway, this is a sad way to close the Friends Forever collection.
>>
Jesus Christ, and to think that Andy Price used to complain about Katie Cook's scripts needing so many bubbles that it distracts from the art.
>>

#1: AJ/Pinkie

>friends forever
>ends on ponies hating each other
>>
>>29903359
>was

wtf its ending? why!?
>>
>>29903435
Make room for Legends of Magic if I had to guess. Yes, it is stupid.
Now we're probably going to get OC of the month out of those.
>>
>>29903435
They are ending the FF series to replace it with a new comic series.

Which will have the same problems of all other comic series because they keep using the same flawed creative team but they expect to get different results for no good reason.
>>
>>29903359
Pinkie only got 6 issues
>why
>>
>Friends forever was the most fun series
>its ending for more serious stuff

I'm not too sure about having 2 serious comics. As serious as the mlp comics get at least.
>>
>>29903359
For me it's:

Liked:
#3: Princess Celestia/Spike
#12: Pinkie/Twilight
#13: Rarity/Babs
#15: AJ/Mayor Mare
#20: Discord/Princess Luna
#26: Shining Armor/Prince Blueblood
#29: Rarity/Maud Pie
#34: Cheese Sandwich/Pinkie
#36: RD/Soarin'

Disliked:
#1: AJ/Pinkie
#8: AJ/Rarity
#14: Spike/Luna
#28: CMC/Princess Luna

The rest I don't care about enough to remember off the top of my head. Seems like I remember the ones I like more though, so that's kind of good.
Favorite is either Pinkie/Twilight or Rarity/Babs. I think the first one is still my least favorite.

How much money is IDW paying you to go around the internet attacking people who refuses to praise their dead horse comics?

Because I suppose you are receiving some payment for this instead of doing it for free, right?
Please tell me you aren't doing it for free.

I can't remember all of them, but #36 is probably my favorite. I think it was way better than most Wonderbolts episodes, and it even managed to "fix" some of the fuck-ups in the show.
>>
>already dead

How sad
>>
>>29903250
First let me tell that:
- Fosgitt pony designs makes want to vomit
- I saw terrible FF issues

Now with that settled, this issue is solid. The question remains if this is a decent or good issue.
- About art. I have mixed reaction. For once Price cam draw ponies nicely, but then he tries way too hard with some reaction faces.

About story:
>>29903172
- Here Celestia seems to be kind of cruel towards sister, being insensitive about her millennial banishment, BUT later this does not find any reference in story. I think, that this could be exploited more.
- Otherwise, the constant bickering and insulting each other was amusing.
- Ending, as always, rushed as fuck. I can somewhat ignore that, due to page limitations.
- Explaining all the sibling issues in >>29903239 and >>29903244 is WRONG way to do it. You shouldn't place that many. For instance Kibitz's bubble in >>29903162 is well used.


>>29903359
For some reason 3: Princess Celestia/Spike is my favorite. It had both adventure and exploring characters.
In the same manner I liked #29: Rarity/Maud Pie.

I hate #14: Spike/Luna for ruining a lot of things here. The major flaw is that it was HARDLY a FF issue.
>>

10/10
best comedy comic in a long time.
Loved the SB special attachment.
haters are just fooling themself
>>
>>29903250
Either I'm tired, but I couldn't finish the story. Kinda boring actually. I'll read it when I'm in a better mood or more awake.
>>
https://www.equestriadaily.com/2017/04/mlp-friends-forever-38-released-today.html

And of course, the autism and bootlicking here about this terrible comic is huge.
>>
>>29904217
Hoping they use some of that in the show. The same Soarin's development is a must.
>>
>>29903166
>Celestia battled bad dreams for 1000 years
>Luna outright says in Magic Sheep that Celestia has no powers in the realm of dreams
do they even watch the show?
>>
>>29903250
I havent even read any panel. Just skim through pages and look at pictures. Theres a lot of Andy Price ebin dog faces, predictable elemtns and OOC Princesses. Its skippable/10
>>
>>29903250
Really a meh finale to the series for me. I was really looking forward to Celestia and Luna's FF but 25 pages of them bickering and looking at Andy see how many exaggerated expressions he can put into the same amount of space wore thin.

The whole of the conflict involved actually working to make Luna and Celestia out of character as pointed out by Kibitz and the sisters themselves (between making them get into a long stressful work week and the berries), before the berries Celestia seemed more hostile than warranted and by the time they ate them they had pretty much lost their characters and blended together into the same squabbling entity. I would have preferred an issue that didn't need to literally coerce the Princesses to their worst in order to have a story and could have a tale where their true characters shined and contrasted against one another; I'm certain Luna and Celestia have enough differences without being pushed to the very brink of sanity to make an interesting conflict/tale between them. The ending of the issue was nice but a bit heavy-handed in delivering the moral of the story (and heavy describes a lot of the rest of the comic: it is very, very wordy compared to usual).

I'll say the art is nice and the visuals/gags energetic and fun and all that but sprinkles of fun don't really make the rest of the story stand out. There were a number of good comparisons on the sun/moon elements of both sisters and how they interact (particularly liked Luna admitting she didn't like being called 'little') but over all they were too few and far between. It certainly wasn't the worst FF but not the going out I would have liked, either.
>>
>>29903250
too many letters
anyway 7/10 needs more cuteness
I love this art though
>>
>>29903152
>the phases of the moon are fickle
is that a saying? because they are pretty predictable
>>
> More words than a CAD comic.
>>
>>29903175
>gypsies ruin everything.jpg

Why does Price write so much? I thought he hated comics that had all of the art obscured.

>>29904901

>>29903250
I really enjoyed it, 8.5/10

>Times of Legends with Celestia & Luna
>Semi-Celestia episode in the openers
>Friends Forever with Celestia & Luna

This is a good month for sunfags.
>>
>>29903359
#3: Princess Celestia/Spike
>#26: Shining Armor/Prince Blueblood
These two were my favorites
>>
>>29906305

>Times of Legends with Celestia & Luna

You meant the legend of magic comic? that one where starswirl finally got some character development and lore expansion but the sister literally waste all the pages of the comic fighting?
>>
>>29906341
>You meant the legend of magic comic?
Ah, yeah, that's what it was called.
