um next time put a mature warning here for Heller sake love the way you draw the comics and this time i'm not skimming no mature thing like this i make me want to gag but i don't have a gag reflex so don't please for your other pages but i do love the drama
eh.. I really don't want to sound very mean here, but I'll be perfectly honest. This page really makes it seem as though the comic completely botches up any kind of establishment (albeit made poorly) that Nightmare Moon previously had in the show.
I get it, though, alternate world, the other characters have slight personality changes and it's not really a huge problem overall.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm not here defending NMM, nor acclaiming her because she is my favourite, I just felt that this change was jarring and rather it took out more away from NMM as a concept and character than it helped. Her story seems to be that of a usurper, not one of a fallen hero that loses everything and becomes a monster.
In fact, if the latter were true, how could she possibly still be redeemed? Nightmare Moon is Luna's envy made flesh and I'm sure Luna's envy of her subjects loving her sister more didn't make her think, "Boy, I do wish I could EAT THEIR FLESH!"..
I guess your interpretation belongs to you, but I never found any reason to believe any interpretation the ponies had on her Literally gobbling up ponies was just purely out of shock, not out of truth.
However, I do hope you understand what I'm saying here and don't take this the wrong way. It's not a huge problem, it's just kind of irritating because to my perspective, it didn't feel that necessary to amp up the intensity here just for pure shock value, it just felt rather out of place for a character with Luna's evil persona development.
ah.. damn edit button.... where are you when I need you..
Anyway, in this part.
"I guess your interpretation belongs to you, but I never found any reason to believe any interpretation the ponies had on her Literally gobbling up ponies was just purely out of shock, not out of truth."
I meant to say that "I often found reason to believe" that any interpretation the ponies had on her Literally gobbling up ponies was just purely out of shock, not out of truth.
To be fair, Nightmare Moon isn't the type that shies away from a challenge, even if she hurts her own subjects, but based on the pilot, I've always pictured her as being the kind of tyrant that doesn't kill her own subjects, instead attempts to neutralize them in a non-fatal manner.
That means she can be very violent when opposed, but not to the point where she's murderous and that imo has to do with the reason why she turned into NMM in the first place, she wanted ponies to relish in her night.
In my head that just makes her much more smart in how cruel she is and there's enough evidence in the first 2 episodes to support this theory.
i don't know why people freak out for the guards! i bet they will get healed by some kind of medic magic, i mean, it's a fantastic world, so there should be more than one way for the guards to still live... or they could just die with honor, or something.... i don't know, the manga is awesome the way it is already, and i just can't wait to know what will happen next.
oh, and the way you are doing this is just way too epic! seriously, the quality of this manga is tops!
