Thank you Diamond Book Distributors for providing me with an ARC copy for review.
I have read both volumes of My little Pony: Friendship is Magic and enjoyed them. This graphic novel is Mane Tales, a collection of stories starring one pony in particular, but featuring the others as well. I liked this new approach to the MLP comics and really enjoyed something other than the big group storyline. At the same time, I didn't miss any of the characters since so many were in each story.
Of course,me a story had different lessons. MLP is always about the lessons, and I like that. It made me laugh out loud, Pinky Pie especially. I really hope they do more Man Tales. It's something where you could pick up an issue and not miss anything, or read the graphic novel at a leisurely pace like I did. Getting bits of MLP at a time was really nice. It's not better or worse from the Friendship is Magic arc, it's just different
