Discussion

Three comics this week! Yes, three. Alca7raz and Nemesis start off with Movie Prequel #4, the final issue of the series. It’s all about Tempest Shadow! Then it’s Legends of Magic #5. Somnambula’s turn in the spotlight. And finally, Friendship is Magic #58! A standalone issue in the main series.

After all that, the focus turns to “It Isn’t the Main Thing About You!” A very Rarity focused episode. Which was great! Despite some of the nitpicks they had. Minor nitpicks, really. Still, it gave us a lot of gems, including the many faces of Rarity. Who went bald. Oh dear.
