Comic Releases for 5/29

Wow... We're getting a lot of great-lookin' new comics this week!
Well, one of these things isn't particularly NEW, per se, being that it's simply the first collected volume for "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". It DOES contain a bit of new bonus material, but the meat of the collection is just issues #1–4, which I'm sure you've all read a while back... Of course, if you HAVEN'T read those first four issues yet (I am disappoint), you should probably get out there and pick this up!
As for the stuff that's entirely new, we're getting issue #4 of the MLP "Micro Series", issue #17 of "The Transformers: More than Meets the Eye", AND the first issue of the new "Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters" comic! I gotta say, the new issue of the MLP "Micro Series" looks pretty darn bizarre, showing us a new side of Fluttershy that's certainly... interesting... And, of course, the new issue of MTMTE looks to be one heck of a tearjerker. Oh, Roberts, why must you torment us so?... As for "Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters", more Dinobots is always a good thing, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what lies in store for Grimlock and company.
Anyway, the summaries and previews can be found below!

  1. Fluttershy is the "next big thing" and "will she ba able to make it in the spotlight", sounds a lot like Green Isn't Your Color.
