My Little Pony: Pony Tales, Vol. 1 (My Little Pony - Micro Series) Paperback by Thom Zahler, Amy Mebberson, Tony Fleecs, Andy Price, Ben Bates

My son came late to the Micro series so we only have two of the individual issues: Applejack and The Cutie Mark Crusaders.  We really need to go back and order the back issues we missed.  This micro series focuses on each of the main characters individually.  Here is the cover and Goodreads blurb:
Six spotlights focusing on everyone's favorite Ponies! Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Applejack each get a whole issue devoted to them.
There are seven issues compiled into this book.  Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Applejack and the Cutie Mark Crusaders each have an issue.  The stories are little outtakes that don't really flow together as a greater story line but they are meant to bring the reader to a deeper understanding of each of the characters.  My son liked the Rainbow Dash story the best (no surprise, she is his favorite).  The Cutie Mark Crusaders story was adorable!  Their faces are so expressive and you can really see the differences in personality between the three friends.  Applejack's story is so sweet and country- just like Applejack herself.  Fluttershy's story is super cute, Pinkie Pie's is super fun, Twilight's is about books and Rarity's is about stepping out of her comfort zone.  All in all, this Micro Series is awesome.

Pony Tales will be published on November fifth so you have plenty of time to get your pre-orders in or catch up with the individual issues.  You can click here to add this collected edition of the mini series to your Goodreads.  The collected edition can be pre-ordered on Amazon.  You can find each of the individual books on My Comic Shop in print and on Comixology in Digital format.  I give Pony Tales 5 Fairies for a great look at each of the main characters in depth that just adds to the fun of this comic series!
