My Little Pony... Jack Kirby Style
Here's an awesome piece "what if" fan art, that gives us a taste of what My Little Pony might have been like had it been illustrated by Jack Kirby. I found the piece over at Comics Alliance who have a fun series that envisions alternate-universe comic art, and it's called Great Comics That Never Happened. This bit of art craziness comes from artist Tom Scioli. Even though this is probably the coolest My Little Pony design I've ever seen, I'm not sure if I still would have read the comics or watched the cartoons. What do you think of the Kirby Pony makover?
Here's the fictional Synopsis:
"BRING ETERNAL NIGHT TO EQUESTRIA!!" THIS IS THE COMMAND THAT HAS BEEN ISSUED AS THE BATTLE FOR PONYVILLE REACHES "CRITICAL MASS!!" WITH HER ASTOUNDING SENSES "TUNED IN" TO THE POWER OF THE ASTRO-SADDLE, PINKIE PIE LEADS HER COMPANIONS THROUGH THE SONIC RAINBOOM TO A WILD AREA WHERE "WIERDIES" ROAM -- THE EVERFREE FOREST! AND AT THEIR COMMAND, SHE WHO WOULD DOOM CELESTIA HERSELF -- THE NIGHTMARE MOON!! WHO IS SHE? WHAT IS SHE? AND WHAT DOES SHE WANT WITH -- THE TWILIGHT SPARKLE?! EVERY PONY MUST STAND -- OR EVERY PONY WILL PERISH IN THE THUNDER OF COSMIC HOOVES!
PLUS! DON'T DARE LOOK DOWN! THE UNSTOPPABLE FORCES OF DESTINY MAY HAVE BRANDED YOU AS THEIR NEXT TARGET! WITNESS "THE CUTIE MARK!!" HAS IT COME -- FOR YOU?!
