The September issue of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic will be the last, according to publisher IDW, but they will kick off a five-issue miniseries, My Little Pony: Generations, in October.

My Little Pony: Generations, by writer Casey Gilly and artist Michela Cacciatore, will bring together the Friendship Is Magic ponies (a.k.a. the Mane 6) and their distant ancestors, the G1 ponies of the 1980s animated series to help fight a new threat from the Volcano of Doom.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic #102 will be an oversized issue that will bring the Season 10 story arc, which continued the final storyline from the animated series, to a close. The creative team on this issue is veteran MLP’ers Jeremy Whitley and Andy Price. There will be three covers: Cover A by Price, Cover B by JustaSuta, and a Retailer Incentive variant by Roopsha Mandal. Price was the artist for the very first issue of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic when it launched in 2012 (see “IDW Does ‘My Little Pony’”).

A My Little Pony animated feature is scheduled to go directly to Netflix in September (see “‘My Little Pony’ Goes to Netflix!”).

In addition to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, IDW has published a number of spin-offs over the years, most recently the My Little Pony/Transformers crossover (see “Cybertron and Equestria Collide in ‘My Little Pony/Transformers’”).
