>>30688453

6/10 enjoyable but rushed as fuck at the end.

This should be a two part comic, to be honest the previous arc would be the autoconclusive one instead

>>30688478
I'd rather it be too short than overstay it's welcome like most arcs seem to do.
>>
>>30688445
Not hard really. That arc was TERRIBLE for a "Heroes turn evil" arc. The only good one was fluttershy.
>>
>>30688453

8/10
It dragged a little at the start, but picked up when they encountered pinkie as an evil alicorn.
This should have been extended to a two parter or 3 parter like others have said, and had pinkie scatter the mane six amongst the chaos dimension like an inverted version of Return of harmony. Have the mane six have to overcome a bunch of random hurdles pinkie's made.


Then have pinkie BEAT discord, but have her realize that she has way more fun with her friends and willingly give up her power rather than be alone with the power forever. Would work much better with the general friendship theme.
>>
I just feel that, the art could be better, the writing could be better, everything could have been better.

And it just feels like a lackluster product, like their aren't even trying.

Really specific in some points.

Like telling that discord can be easily replaced.

It's a solid 6/10. Unremarkable but that's the most you can ask from the comics these days frankly. The last arc was super dumb.

Yeah, this comic needs better artists.

Traced from where?
>>
>>30688864
Look at the half assed way as Fleecs draws ponies all the time and the very specific poses he isn't drawing like ass.
We already know he traces AND steals from fanartists, so it's obvious that when Fleec's ponies actually resemble the cartoon ponies is because he's tracing from someone else.

"This Nightmare Again". Is Rarity refering to when she was turned into Nightmare Rarity? I have to say, now I want to see the other Mane Six with the powers of their enemies.

What is next? Applejack with Tirek's power? Fluttershy with Queen Chrysalys's power?
>>
>>30689758
I don't know, but it would be cool if the Mane 6 gain the powers of the villains.

Her entire plan is to murder that strawberry pony.

very much.

Sadly, they've had TWO chances to do "Evil mane six" plot arcs, and managed to fuck THEM ALL UP. (Dark water and reflections)

Remember in the Accord arc where they actually made fun of this story constantly being told?
>>
>>30691431
Yeah, I remember those, but this is different.

One was alternative versions of themselves, the other was their own villain versions. This is actually the Mane 6 getting the roles of Equestria's biggest villains.
>>
>>30688453
4/10
Too many characters doing shit.
Story too rushed.
His dismension established as a source of his magic which isnt the case.
Jokes completely unfunny.
Dialogues lack proper editing.
Some random "Hi Amy" shoutout in the comic, probably artists inside joke to appease his pal.
Overall wasted premise of something that could have been an awesome episode. It wasn't even a Pinkie/Discord story, just mostly Discord/Fluttershy with him interacting with Pinkie in last 3 pages.
>>
>>30688416
OH LOOK, STARSHIT IS THERE TO SAY THE DAY!

All she did this comic was help find a spell and act as a dimensional anchor in case the portal closed. Discord did the work once they got back into his realm.

Thanks for sharing the comic, Anon. You're doing God's work.
Pretty much agree with some of the previous comments. Pretty good comic, but too rushed. It should have been longer, the premise was great, and I feel that they could have easily written a couple comics with this story.
The characterizations were good, but I didn't like Starlight's role. She's only in like four pages, but in half of them she's literally telling Twilight what to do. But that's not even a surprise any more so whatever.
>>
>>30692758
>Pretty good comic
Fuck you, Illustrious Q.
>>
>>30692758
Eh, I can let Starlight slide since she's not really too important to the main storyline of the comic. I had fun with the comic as well though. I understand why others didn't like it, but the craziness was just right to me.
>>
neat

Is there much out of the books in >>30688475 that you're excited about or anticipating seeing /mlp/?

I don't think I've ever been in an artbook story time where a number of people weren't mad. All the what-if and could-have-been/should-have-been posting goes off the charts.
Even though there's no guarantee any of the discarded concepts would be executed well if they were put in the final product.
>>
Not sure how I feel about the chaos dimension being sentient and the source of Discord's power. I had assumed he created it as a residence for himself. If that isn't the case then it raises some questions.
Was Discord born there? If so, why is he the only sapient creature living there? Wouldn't the realm enjoy itself more if there were more people? More people, more chaos after all.
If Discord came from outside the chaos realm, then how did he get there the first time since he wouldn't be able to open dimensional rifts prior to arriving?

I think I'll stick to this story being non-canon until these questions are answered, even if it was a fun read.
>>
Why couldn't this have been a story arc in the show instead?
also, this just makes me sad that nightmare rarity didn't get an alicorn form too during that comic.
>>
>>30698517
It wasn't canon and no one from FiM even looked at the script. Discordant Harmony shown mail pony being alive and well and according to the comics he should have been insane or dead.

Mail carriers in equestria are picked soley from the most badass and resilient of ponies.
>>
>>30698517
It also raises the question of how Tirek could steal it if his power source should be coming from another dimension. Is this implying Tirek ate the entire dimension?
>>
>>30698773
they mention in the comic the idea of discord having to "top off his tanks".

it seems more like he goes there, gathers up his energy from it, and then leaves-- he presumably doesn't have the FULL dimension at his control, just enough as he can store in him.


Tirek probably stole all the energy that Discord had stored up and severed his ability to draw more magic from the dimension, but that's it: When Tirek would steal magic he wouldn't actually GAIN their powers, but would "convert" their power into more of his own magical power--- It's like dumping gasoline on a fire, the gasoline's gone so you can't use the Fire to power a car, but the fire still gained energy.


By comparison, what I mean is that Tirek could only do a couple limited actions such as Firing lasers, having super strength and invulnerability from stealing magic. He wasn't able to teleport, create shields, ect. after stealing pony magic. His method of stealing magic didn't bestow on the person the abilities of those he stole it from, so he probably destroyed the ability to draw more chaos magic from the dimension when he "converted" discord's magic into a power source for himself.
