the comic isn't even out yet and there have been over 90,000 pre-orders for the book.
i guess that makes me "best selling writer katie cook".
for those that don't know, those numbers are staggering for an all-ages comic... and really staggering for a license that has a "just for little girls" stigma behind it.
rest assured that i did NOT treat it like a "just for little girls" license. it still fits in with the charm and appeal of the new show... a fantasy story about friendship and adventure (that just happens to have ponies in the starring roles).
...go figure. i'm on a book that's on the top of the sales charts and i'm not even the one drawing it! ;)
but andy price and i are really excited for everyone to read the book when it comes out next month.
there's a really great write-up on the sales numbers here:
