In a press release yesterday, IDW announced a cool new comics format for fans to enjoy. Titled the micro-fun pack, the new mini comic book line will be available on November 15th and will feature four My Little Pony issues: Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Applejack.
Each pack comes with a 22 page micro-comic book which has been reformatted in size-5.75″ x 3.75″ to be exact. These books will easily be able to fit into fans’ backpacks and pockets. The content has also been updated and will feature a two page My Little Pony play set splash page in the middle of each book, in which the reader can place their removable sticker that comes with the pack. There’s also a three-page “How-to-Draw” tutorial in each issue. In addition to the comic and sticker, each pack also contains one of 16 different foldout posters and tattoos. Pretty cool huh?
“These micro-fun packs are full of great surprises,” said IDW CEO and publisher, Ted Adams. “We’ve taken the comic and re-lettered it to adjust for the new size, then we’ve added a host of new content that will provide hours of fun. It’s a huge home run and we’re happy to continue the IDW tradition of delivering innovative, quality books.”
IDW’s director of new business Jerry Bennington had this to add:
“These fun packs are going to really wow people. The amount of content we’ve packed into such a small package is wonderful. Hopefully some fans out there will pick up these comics, start practicing the tips they learn in the “How-to-Draw” pages, and maybe they’ll be auditioning for work with us some day. This is a product for fans both young and old. We want everyone to join in the fun!”
In addition to comic book shops, the My Little Pony Micro-Fun Pack will be available this November in select Walmart, Target and Toys R’ Us stores.
