An omnibus compilation of the mane comic series is coming out in October, with the first 12 issues. You can pre-order it for just slightly more than one of the normal 4-issue Trade Paper Backs. Since those are like $14 a pop, it's kind of a steal if you haven't gotten each TPB (or *gasp!* each issue) individually yet.

That figures, because I actually DO have the first couple of TPBs already. And here I thought I was soooo clever waiting for them to come out.

Either way, it's cheaper than buying the singles. The difference is really how long you're willing to wait versus how much money you think you're gonna save. That's how these things usually work.

The 4-issue TPBs come out pretty regularly, but months after the end of the last arc they cover. The asking price is $18 versus buying the singles individually at $4, so you're not really saving money buying at full price. Pre-order specials and later sale prices are the key here, usually you wind up paying somewhere between $10-15. So you can wait a few months after a story arc ends and save a little money. That's a tradeoff I'm willing to make (plus I like the paperback format better than the floppy singles).

The omnibus is coming out, what, 23 months after the comic series debuted? That pre-order price is less than the normal list price, which is just under $30. So you can count on the whole package saving about $20 over all 12 issues with no sale prices considered, but the lag time is killer.

Have all the TPBs too. I wonder if there'll be some extras in that. Either way, probably not meant for me, unless there's some extra art stuff. Most likely, there's less. Likely it won't include all the cover art like the TPBs did. But a hell of a deal if you don't have them. Wink


*edit*
Well since I'm posting in this thread anyway, and I JUST posted a sketch 2 hours ago of a Twilight Sparkle piece I'm working on, I might as well share.

Both are scheduled for 2015

ff got delayed
My worst fear is that it will merely be middling mediocre. Judging by the trailer the sound design at least will be subpar, but then trailers can be deceptive.

If it's a stinking heap of irredeemable terrible then we get to make fun of it.

The original Japanese was better!
OMG North American dubbers, man. WTfreck? Why can't those no-talent hacks ever give a compelling performance?

Okay, sure, I may watch the series in Japanese, but I make a point of watching the movies in Spanish, thank you very much.

Granny Smith is a link.
