Comic mini-review: Friends Forever #27: Pinkie Pie and Granny Smith

MLP Friends Forever comic #27 cover by Tony Fleecs
This is Tony Fleecs's main cover; I thought both it and Garbowska's Sub were a bit dull
This review is a little late, but there's been a lot going on, so I hope you'll forgive me. Anwyay, this looked like an interesting pairing when it was first announced. In the end, it turns out to be a fairly gentle story from Christina Rice, without the madcap antics you might expect from Pinkie; there's even a mild nod towards a possibly unhappy foalhood (beyond what we've seen on the show). There aren't many pop culture references either, which will please some and disappoint others. I'm not entirely keen on Granny's characterisation in a couple of places, but it's not a disaster. Agnes Garbowska's art is what you'd expect from her; her close-ups seem better than her long shots. This is a pleasant entry in the series, albeit a little subdued by Pinkie's standards. The lower reaches of three-star territory, I think. ★★★


  1. It's pretty tough to make anything Pinkie anything less that "solid." It can be done, but it takes work. Pinkie is just intrinsically fantastic, so she elevates whatever she's in.

      See a certain fanfic I reviewed last time... actually, don't.
