How many G2 comics were there?
« on: September 04, 2018, 08:50:28 PM »
I've been wanting to update the G2 comic book section of My Little Wiki, but I really don't have much info on the comics of this generation!

So far the most info I have is a site that says the UK comic run ended with #14.  Can anyone confirm?

There is also a French G2 comic.  I believe I have #11 of it, so apparently it went at least to #11.  It's illustrated in a very different style than the UK G2 comics I have, but I don't know if that is consistent thoughout the run?

Here's an example of French illustrations:

Whereas the UK illustrations tended to be more on-model / clip-arty:

So to sum up my questions:

1. How many G2 comics in the UK run?

2.  Did the G2 French comic always have completely different illustrations than the G2 UK comic?

3.  How many issues in the French comic run?

4.  Did any other countries get G2 comics?

I only remember having 13 UK ones, though I got rid of most of mine to Lady Guinevere and I feel like if you could get hold of her she might know the answers to some of those questions. I know she was actively collecting them...

I have 14 UK Comics.

As far as the French series go. They are divided into a series of magazines and a series of 'activités'.
Both had a run consisting of 20 issues :)

G2 also had some comics featured in the 'Storyland' magazines. I just purchased one of these. So I hope to have it in the mail this week :lovey:

My (wip) page about the comics: http://lavenderlagoon.weebly.com/magazines-colouring-books.html
Some of my scans (with one translated French comic): http://lavenderlagoon.weebly.com/comics.html

As for:
2.  Did the G2 French comic always have completely different illustrations than the G2 UK comic?
I think so, although they started out with 'acurate' G2 clip art as well (at least on the covers) :)  I can check mine and make some comparison scans.

Edit to add!
The French comics also appeared in some Vacation books :) But when I opened issue no. 1 I found out that the G1 animated serie, which I think is, Ghost of Paradise Estate was in it! The picture quality is so poor that I think they took pictures from a VHS and pasted it into a comic xD It does have a poster with a G2 Paradise in it though :P
No 2. Is all G2 :)

Yes, the UK G2 comic run ended with #14. To quote from the 'Pony Post' section: "Sadly, this is out last issue of My Little Pony. We thank you all for reading and enjoying this magazine.".
