IDW announces new comic that kicks fans in groin; bronies rejoice by



 In response to fan feedback about a "more immersive" pony comic experience, IDW today announced an issue of their newest comic that has a unique feature: the ability to kick any fan who picks it up directly in their genital region.

"We're really excited about all the chances that this new technology gives us," said Ted Anderson, writer for the issue. "It really helps to push the kind of feelings that I want from my readers when the medium does part of my work for me. The issue, which Anderson will only say "will certainly make romantically-inclined people happy," will be drawn by famous illustrator Tony Fleecs.

"Working with Ted really allows my characters to shine. I mean, I wouldn't be able to not draw legs and keep drawing the same dull expression over and over again without some sort of ham-fisted and morally questionable story to accompany me." Fleecs then turned away our reporters and promptly returned to coloring a mouth completely disconnected from a body.

This new technological breakthrough comes hot on the heels of last month's "Pony Talker" issue, wherein a two page spread was devoted to a parody of critics who gave poor reviews to the previous issue was accompanied by an audio track.

Like that issue, the announcement of "The Kicker" has caused massive support from the brony community.

"I mean, I don't have the time to read some Tumblr blog from an artist or writer, or heck, even an editor that doesn't respect my opinions on an official forum. It's just much better to come home at the end of a long day, crack open a pony comic, and receive several swift kicks to my genitals. It's more therapeutic."

Editor Bobby Curnow was excited about the issue:

"You guys had better buy and like this issue. My dad has cancer, come on. You're going to say anything bad about it to me?"



The recently announced issue has broken pre-sale records.

    1. You people... tt was never stated by anyobdy, officially, that Ted was fired, apart from the reply to ED saying 'he'll never work for us again' from letters@idw.com

      That ain't offical.
      Bobby Curnow never said he was being fired.
      He's not lying or calling it a 'misunderstanding'.
      For once.
      Stop the drama.

    2. This.
      At this point we are the one looking ridiculous.
      I don't want us to turn like ultra SJW by harassing ted until he's fired. Now that sure will cause him to hate us forever.

      Delete
    3. Yeah. Like he and almost every official haven't hated you rabid fanboys or atleast find you so damn annoying since... ever. Ever since you barged your way into the My Little Pony fandom.

      Keep lying to yourselves. Oh and if you want the drama to stop? Get the fuck out of the My Little Pony fandom. Your racism and homophobia ain't cute and it's not fucking welcome. You're "not giving a fuck about anything" attitude is what started this shit in the first place.

    4. Oh, the vitriol!

      What you think is righteous fury boiling inside you is actually your self-importance being inflamed, because everyone knows you're full of shit.

      Points for some excellent strong and pissed off words in your villain monologue though.

    5. You know what's really funny? You can't stop us. You can't stop us from watching this cartoon. You can't stop us from enjoying fan content. You can't stop us. All of your hate and rage, all of your insults can't stop us. You are completely powerless. And no matter how much you call us all sexist, or rapist, or homophobes, it will never make any of that true. You can scream insults, you can cry fedora, you can keep insisting that we are all this fictional brony stereotype, and it will never become true just because you and your echo chamber say it is.

      You can twirl your mustache all you want. At the end of the day, all your butthurt does is sustain us. So please, cry us some more tears Ponies over Bronies. They're delicious. And while you're screaming into your echo chamber, I'll keep right on watching the show. I'll continue to help others, and preach tolerance and unity. I'll continue not being a sexist or a racist. And you'll continue being an asshat spewing nonsense.

  2. And they wonder why their comic sales have been dropping during the present year

    1. Actually, their sales outside comic shops have skyrocketed, more than making up for the small dip they've taken among the morbidly obese neckbeards who still go to comic stores.

      IDW has basically cornered the market on a new kind of comic sold in non-comic stores with MLP as the first wave, selling half a million copies in the first half of the year. Their main audience is kids, always has been.

      http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/07/31/idw-trademarks-micro-fun-packs-after-selling-half-a-million-of-them/

      Basically every brony in the world could stop reading the comic tomorrow and it would still be doing fine. Which won't happen since 90% of bronies don't give two shits about this autistic Tumblr drama in the first place.

      Enjoy your powerlessness.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, while I don't think that comic sales will be too terribly altered by this, how can you even say that sales have skyrocketed? To even imply that sales have taken any kind of increase is retarded. Numbers don't lie.

    3. Oh yeah, micro-funpacks. I remember those from when they were Archie comics.

  3. Wow. This is what your fandom has devolved into. You can’t let just one thing go in this fandom can you? Obviously not. It’s no wonder your fandom is looked down upon. Might as well be the next Sonic fandom for all you care and that’s a BAD thing. You can't let anything go. You just have stew about something like this ALL THE FUCKING TIME. And here I thought your fandom was about Love and Tolerance. Or something more realistic like not giving a fuck lmfao. I can see I am proven wrong on both accounts. This is just one of the MANY reasons why your fandom is so looked down by the general public.


    Enjoy your sinking shit ship. Hopefully when the entire world realizes how gross and toxic your fandom is, they'll run your asses out of the My Little Pony fandom. Good riddance to 4chan-type trash if that happens. You ruined My Little Pony and the fandom that was here BEFORE your shitty ilk showed up.

    3. >implying that we give a shit about your opinion.

      All fandoms are toxic. That's what makes them hilarious. Businesses hire creatively attuned folk to help them sell crap that nobody needs or wants until they're told to, then we're to blame for taking it too far? Exactly when, in a democratic majority, has it been accepted that the few outweigh the sweaty, maniacal majority? Get a grip.

      We're as toxic as we're supposed to be. Nothing here is new, save that the circumstances are curious enough to make comment. Big deal! We're ungrateful, hateful assholes! BOO! OUR FANDOM IS SHIT BECAUSE YOU SAY SO! WE ARE SO GONNA CHANGE OUR WICKED WAYS AND BOW TO THE CORPORATE POWER! WE'LL DO WHAT EVER WE'RE TOLD, AND DO IT QUIETLY! ACCEPT THE GRUEL WHILST THE PRIVILEDGED SUP ON FILET MIGNON!

      We love and tolerate. All the time. Just not online. Seriously, how tweenage are you?

  4. Oh no, a clarification on something that actually happened! That's not letting it go? Go fuck yourself you SJW type prick.

    So they clarified something that was in fact 'a thing' and they mock it while doing so. Go out in the real world and try this kinda shit, see how well that works.

    When not even the biggest dickslurper of the fandom cannot deny the loss of sales you know that IDW is doing things wrong.

    But that's just my opinion, just saying... peace everyone!

  10. Well, this certainly escalated quickly...again.

    I am glad that they actually clarified things....good to see the fandom doing what is does best...argue with one another. God bless Ronald Regan :D

  12. A good reason to not buy IDW comics again, mainly not the my little pony ones. The guy should have gotten what he deserved.
    At first way back when I heard it I felt sad for Ted being fired but the more research I put in it the less "sad for him" it was turning out to be.

    The man needs a real life check and having an negative opinion to the majority of your comic purchasers (the people who support you and make sure you can have your damn job) is a very good reason to get fired

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, at this moment Bobby Curnow continues reciting his scratched record about "Misunderstandings, I really don't see anything bad with Ted's actions" and his infamous "I may be wrong, I may be mistaken but I'm still not going to do anything" excuse before running away like the coward and useless editor he is.

    He completely refuses to take ANY stance, still wants to preted he totally "understands" why so many people is pissed off and as you can see, he's desperately trying to shift the topic to safer waters, with the help of some shills who are planting "safe" questions for him to focus.

    One of them is, (who else?) Soundmonkey44, who literally cannot stop kissing butt and sucking dick.

  14. Damn it, and I was going to go buy some of the comics soon! Why do you do this to me, IDW? I just wanted to read fun comics, not support Ted "LOL Satire" Anderson and Bobby "LOL Misunderstandings" Curnow!

    Why does the world have to be so HAAAAAAAARD?
