More on Lauren Faust’s “Super Best Friends Forever”:
A humorous tone runs through all the shorts, including S.B.F.F. (short for Super Best Friends Forever), which stars Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Girl and “has plenty of action and fighting, but is really much more focused on comedy and laughs and how much fun it is to be a superhero,” says producer Lauren Faust. “It’s like taking a teenage experience but putting a superhero spin on it, in one episode, Supergirl and Batgirl try to convince Wonder Girl to sneak out in Wonder Woman’s invisible jet to go for a joyride.” Guess even supergirls just wanna have fun….Each SBFF short runs just over a minute. It’s like telling a visual joke.”
Old News with New Significance: There will be a Super Best Friends Forever comic to tie in with Lauren Faust’s DC Nation shorts! Hopefully by lady creators (maybe even Faust herself!), and hopefully this means there will be Amethyst stories too! (via Bleeding Cool)

I just read the first Amethyst series about two weeks ago and I am sooooo excited to see her used by DC again (finally)

Only tangentially related to comics, but I am thrilled that such a strong female-led show (both for characters and behind-the-scenes creative), which has a wildly diverse audience, is finally getting the DVD treatment. For the longest time there were no plans whatsoever to put out a DVD, and I’m very glad they changed their minds. I just hope we get the rest of the episodes someday!
The ponies are getting the Kate Beaton treatment now, and it’s adorable as usual. :3
Yes, I finally caved and started watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Also, fun times, Sabrina Alberghetti, who also does Darkwing Duck comics, is a storyboard artist!
This does not mean that I will use that as an excuse to post MLP pics whenever I feel like it (except it totally does)
