Graeystone: Been asked about the recent episode The Times They Are A Changeling and
how that affects the comic. That episode doesn’t affect the comic for
the following reasons:
The comic was started long before the
episode aired and I don’t want to make the kind of changes that line up
the comic with canon concerning Thorax. With the path that’s laid out
for the comic, Thorax couldn’t fit in anywhere without seriously
distracting from the regular cast.
MLP the cartoon is a child’s
show. They have to ‘soften’ characters like Chrysalis so she remains
'kid friendly’. The comic is not a kids comic as shown on page 11.
This is also 'realistic comic’ in some ways. Chrysalis is reflective of
just about every real life dictator/tyrant in the present and past.
Simply put - dictators do not care about their people. Also the
Changeling Hive reflects real life insect hives, not the ones found in
the movies Antz or A Bug’s Life.
