If this weren’t such am amazing year for comics the success of My Little Pony #1 would be maybe the story of the year: how did a comics book aimed at young girls get pre-orders of over 100,000 copies? Pony madness is such that a second printing, due December 19th has already sold out, and a 3rd printing is ALREADY under way. When all is said and done—and all the variant covers are counted up—MLP #1 will be one of the best selling books of the year.

If it sounds familiar, it should be—the issue was put together at a feverish pace after the events of real life Hurricane Sandy.
