You guys, they’re obviously witcher ponies, not bat ponies! See those mutant eyes?



Why a witcher pony? Well, one reason for it may be the Wild Hunt game coming out next year but, more importantly, Andrzej Sapkowski has actually published a new book! Aw yeah, new Witcher fiction and this is how I celebrate! You'd think that monster hunters would make a good living in Equestria but no! The man(e) has to monopolise the whole gig, man!

Why the crude, crude joke in the beginning? I find it hilarious how drastically exploitable the content of the new season’s first two episodes is. I can imagine what the darker reaches of the fandom are going to produce (have produced!?) but I wouldn’t actually want to see it. And yeah, I made up 'plunderweed'. From plunder seeds grow plunderweeds.

And no, not really a ponified Geralt. I understand the bright hair and similar attire weren’t necessary, but I had to do something to make it clear what I was referencing. :P

Thank you all immensely for the feedback from the poll and my previous comics. Hopefully it shows that I treat your advice very seriously and try to apply it to the best of my abilities.

No, no comments on how indescribably I loved the new season. Admit it, you must be sick of hearing that from everyone with even the smallest soapbox available. :P

Also, I told you, :iconunassuminguser:, that it’s a way of life.

This guy should contact Princess Luna.
Princess of the Night slays monsters all the time. THIS IS CANON as established by the comics.
If this guy has no qualms about having batwings he's got a job.

I can't blame him really. Maybe the second game wasn't bad at all in that aspect, but take the first game's story and compare it to the saga – it'll come out as naive and damaging to the good name of the fiction.
Heheh, well, I hope he'd have a good sense of humour. It's just how I've shown my love for his creation. ;)

If I remember it correctly he wasn't complaining that game is bad. He said that there is only one original Witcher: the one he created in his books.

Yeah, because he doensn't like anything with witcher, what wasn't made by him [but he agreed to all projects: movie, serial, comics and games [pc and rpg]]. And now he published a book with Geralt and co after how long- 14 years?- after the last book with witcher was written. Especially when his last 'non witcher' book was a failure. He knows, that only witcher is popular and only this series will earn money for him. And I think, that he is a little bitter about it.

I already readed the new book. It's name would be ,,A season for Strms''. I read the orginal not the translation. [org is polish] OMG, amazing! [Fook u, Alzur, you ancient bastard, I kill evry of ur Abominations!!!] 

A witcher PWNy. WoW! Dat Idea! [He looks like Leo...] Fabulous!!! I would give him the Wicher Neckacle as a Cutie Mark and made him an Unicorn but his vison is even a little better 'cause he is weaker...

I can't even begin to describe how vibrant the facial expressions in each panel are. They really jump out of the page, and are very alive.

In terms of bodies and proportions, Bonbon and the OC are also well drawn and, like the backgrounds, have well represented three dimensional effects and spacing. The arrangements in the first panel, three-dimensionally, particularly seem to draw in the reader.

The theme itself is actually quite funny, and ironic. Although there are some episodes of FiM that are heavily action oriented, it's not the specialty of the show. Given the types of "slice of life" scenarios, and emotional alternatives to more traditional conflict resolution in fantasy shows (believable forgiveness scenarios), it probably is better off not being the prime specialty (this can be up for debate).

As for the last panel... there is one loose end. If he's feeling suicidal enough, he could travel to whichever castle Queen Chrysalis is imprisoned (if taking the IDW interpretation), and take on her and all the changelings there. She and all of them would probably be starving by that point, in addition to, putting it lightly, grumpy over Pinkie's custom annoying the heck out of them all day and night every single day. I don't know what his OC is like, but for a job like that I'm guessing only Filthy Rich could pay him enough to seriously consider doing that one.

Anyway, nice work once again. I really like the OC.
