My Little Pony: Friends Forever, Vol. 3 - Christina Rice,Tony Fleecs,Agnes Garbowska,Brenda Hickey,Jay P. Fosgitt,Amy Mebberson,Ted Anderson,Barbara Kesel

Same set-up as the first two book. Four stories that feature one (or two) of the Mane Six (Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie) as well as a side character (Iron Will, Spitfire). This one also included a story about Granny Smith and the Flim Flam Brothers, which I enjoyed. As much as I love the Mane Six, sometimes it's nice to see what the other characters are up to. 

As with the other books, I prefer the art styles that are similar to the show (Tony Fleecs) and was really thrown off by the artists that used there own style for the characters (Jay Fosgitt's hardly even look like the characters and it drove me nuts). 

Good stories, I liked the variety. Overall, another nice collection of stories for Pony fans.

My Little Pony: Friends Forever Volume 2 - Tony Fleecs,Thom Zahler,Jeremy Whitley,Agnes Garbowska,Katie Cook

This book is pretty similar in style to the first volume of the series. It consists of four friendship stories featuring various characters in the My Little Pony universe. In this one, each story includes one (or more) of the Mane Six (Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Apple Jack, and Rarity) as well as a side character (Zecora, Trixie, and Princess Luna).

I feel pretty much the same about this volume as I did about the first. Overall, it's good. I prefer the comics that look more like the show (Tony Fleecs) rather than those that have their own style (Agnes Garbowska). There are a few weird things that seem inconsistent with the show (Rarity and Applejack really just stole a gyro-flyer!?). But the stories were all entertaining.

Good for MLP fans that enjoy graphic novels.

Overall, this is a cute graphic novel based on the characters in the My Little Pony show. There are four stories, each with a different writer and illustrator. For the most part, I liked it. There were a few times the comics seemed to break from the show (I can't imagine Applejack being okay with pretending to be somebody else during a competition- even if it were an accident, her element is literally honesty). I liked some of the artwork more than others. Carla Speed McNeil's artwork is closest to that of the show while Amy Mebberson's is very different. I preferred the art that represented the ponies seen in the show. 

All of the stories are entertaining and fun. Great for fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Best Friends Forever - Margot Hunt

Three and a half star rating.
A chance meeting throws the serious, plodding Alice with rich, enigmatic Kat and they are soon best of friends or are they? This book kept me gripped from start to finish, but the ending was a huge disappointment and had expected something better after that build up. The women weren't exactly nice and neither were their husbands - huge streaks of selfishness running through all four of them. What lively Kat actually saw in mundane Alice is a mystery in itself! An easy read, great for holidays.

Hockey

I would like to thank NetGalley and Animal Media Group for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

4.5 stars 

Introduction: 

YAY! NetGalley has sent me the final volume to Howard Shapiro’s hit series “Forever Friends Trilogy” called “Hockey Karma” and I must admit that after I read this graphic novel, it was a worthy conclusion to this series!

What is this story about? 

In this volume, Jeremiah “Jake” Jacobson is now thirty-two years old and is known as being the best hockey player in the world. Unfortunately, because Jake is getting older now and he is starting to lose his edge, especially to new and upcoming star teammate Barclay Pedersen, his family life and career is starting to rapidly come apart. Meanwhile, Tom Leonard has got his own issues to deal with as he is trying to get a project that would help improve their city off the ground. But Jake refuses to help out with the project due to dealing with his addiction to some medical pills to keep him in the game and Tom is wondering if he would ever get the project off the ground. Also, Tom’s old high school crush, Jaelithe returns to town and Tom rekindles his relationship with Jaelithe and the two are thinking about staying together. But unfortunately, Tom will soon discover that he may have to sacrifice his current lifestyle just to maintain a long-lasting relationship with Jaelithe.

Will Jake be able to get his life back together and will Tom soon discover what he really wants for his future?

Read this graphic novel to find out!
 


What I loved about this story: 

Howard Shapiro’s writing: Howard Shapiro’s writing continues to amaze me in this volume as all the characters are written extremely well and I just enjoyed the character development that each character goes through in this story. I loved the way that Howard Shapiro portrayed Jake’s condition as he is still recovering from his alcoholism from the last volume, only this time, he is dependent on pain medication and it realistically shows that even though Jake is trying to get help for his dependence on drugs, he is still struggling with trying to overcome his drug addiction. I also enjoyed the relationship shared between Tom and Jake as Tom is still trying to help Jake become a better person by helping him deal with his drug abuse and trying to help him mend his relationship with his family. I liked the way that Howard Shapiro also gave some focus to Tom in this volume as we finally get to see Tom have some of his story arcs resolved in this volume (him reuniting with his high school band “The Stereotypical Freaks” and him trying to rekindle his relationship with his high school crush Jaelithe) and I enjoyed seeing how much growth Tom goes through when he reunites with his old high school friends.

Andres J. Mossa’s artwork: Andres J. Mossa’s artwork is extremely gorgeous in this volume as all the characters are drawn realistically and seem to glow off the pages. I also loved the fact that Andres J. Mossa’s artwork is much more detailed in this volume than in the previous volumes as it greatly reflects the growing maturity in the stories and as the stories become more mature, the artwork becomes more detailed and realistic in tone.

What made me feel uncomfortable about this story: 

The reason why I gave this book a four-and-a-half-star rating was because I felt that pacing was a bit too slow in some places and there was a lot of dialogue going on in this book that sort of slowed down the story a bit. I often had to speed through the dialogue just to get to the meat of the story and I kind of wished that some of the heavy dialogue was trimmed a bit so I could get to the more essential parts of the story.

Final Thoughts: 

Overall, “Hockey Karma” is a great conclusion to Howard Shapiro’s “Forever Friends Trilogy” that really cemented the importance of true friendship and I hope to see more works from Howard Shapiro soon!
