Remnants from the battle between Princess Celestia and Nightmare Moon had finally made their way to Equestria and brought the apples at Sweet Apple Acres to life. Now, the apples are amassing an army and enslaving ponies to take over the entire world…starting with Ponyville.
GRADE: A+. Since IDW began publishing this series in 2012, this was probably the best issue yet. Thom Zahler takes previously established continuity and uses it to his advantage to craft a story that’s absolutely fun. The villains are so insanely silly, right down to their leader having a mustache. The mane six are perfectly represented, and Pinkie Pie steals the show after her transformation (which was spoiled by one of the variant covers). It was just a fun and funny romp from cover to cover, perfectly brought to life by Tony Fleecs and Heather Breckel.
