Ponyville navigation

Hello, and welcome to Ponyville!

How to read the comic:
LJ posts show the comic in reverse chronological order - newest first, oldest last.

The following link will show you only entries containing comics:
Comics, newest to oldest

However, I recommend starting from the beginning and reading forwards. This is imperative in understanding many storylines, as well as for most secondary jokes. The following link takes you to the first comics. (Use the "later" link at the bottom of that page to scroll chronologically).
Comics, oldest to newest.

Also, you can use the "tags" system to view specific storylines or comics featuring a certain character.

One day Ponyville will hopefully have a website, making navigation much easier. Until that day, we shall all suffer together.

PONYVILLE NEWS CRAWL: THE CREATOR SPEAKS; ECHO EFFECT ADDED

Hello, Ponyville readers!

It's clear by now that I do not know what the future holds for the Ponyville comic. I don't want you to assume that this prolonged hiatus is writing on the wall, that the comic has gone the way of Roo's youth. ponyville is not yet snarling at passers-by, weilding a broom, losing its teeth.

Also clear, what's keeping me from updating is not easily circumvented. My creative energy and time has to go towards finishing school with my music degree, and a coming summer internship. (Couldn't I intern in Ponyville? But on second thought...)

As you know, I've been conflicted about whether it's best to give the comic the mercy killing that Roo never got. But I've decided that's not going to happen. I think I can figure out a way to let the comic evolve into something enjoyable and manageable.

I've discussed, with friends of mine who create comics themselves, doing an overhaul of the PV format. Perhaps a refocusing of storylines, but certainly a change to how the comic looks. It will likely get a bit sketchy (literally!), but I welcome this, and hope it won't be a jarring change for you.

I want to sincerely thank you all for sticking with Ponyville. Unless the majority of journals still watching the comic are now abandoned, many of you are still here, and I am encouraged by this!

Comic #68- 68:04

Comic #68- 68:04

Today's strip was subject to an experiment. Comics usually take 10 hours, on average, to complete, but I wanted to see what I could create in only half that time, maximum. Visually it's notably more rough, and my perfectionism is tingling, but I'm hoping to find ways to make updating consistatly an easier endeavor.



("The Fourth Wall" is the imaginary boundary beween and audience and the characters on stage/television/etc.. When a character turns to the "camera" and addresses the audience, that's called "breaking the fourth wall.")
