Discussion

To start off, we announce the winner of our little Twitter giveaway! So congrats to @Retr0Br0ny on getting a Trixie! After that, Alca7raz and Nemesis take a look at Friendship is Magic #62, the newest comic. It doesn’t exactly leave the strongest first impression, we’ll tell you that much.

But the bulk of our talk is focused “Griffon the Brush Off!” Another early episode, this was our introduction to Gilda. And wow, did she leave an impression! But not an entirely positive one for Fluttershy fans. Still, we have that, the pranks, Pinkie’s occasional obliviousness, and more to talk about.
