Comic - Twilight's First Day #1 by muffinshire Comic - Twilight's First Day #1 by muffinshire
I've been toying with the idea of doing some MLP comics, and been dithering back and forth between doing standalone joke-based stuff or a more narrative-based series. This, anyway, is the result, which lays the groundwork for what could be expanded into an ongoing story if I decide to do so.

By the way, as this has come up several times in the comments, Twilight already having her cutie mark is consistent with the show - she earned it during the entrance exam that got her into Princess Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns, as depicted in "The Cutie Mark Chronicles", not on her first day.

Update: This comic has become far and away my most-viewed piece to date. Thanks to KeinZantezuken for posting it on his/her Tumblr, leading to it being reblogged in numerous other places including the popular Ask the Crusaders Tumblr which kicked off the first major rush of views, and to Equestria Daily for featuring it in one of their regular comic posts. Within a couple more hours it really exploded, popping up on Reddit, Funnyjunk, and even reaching fourth position in deviantART's "most popular in the last 24 hours" listing at one point (and #1 in the fan art section)! The power of filly Twilight is mighty! Seriously, thanks to everyone who helped draw so much attention to this comic.

one reason it's so popular is because it's I think the highest quality MLP comic I've ever seen. Seriously, I've yet to find a MLP comic who is better drawn than this one.
So the quality of the art is far superior to the series yet it still has the same innocent feeling to it.

I agree.
I also didn't mean it as praise, I meant it seriously. However that quality does come at the cost of quantity. He can only manage about 1 page per month while most comic writers can manage 1 page per week and some even more.

Yep. Most comics look so-so, but they come out a lot so people put up with it. However, in this case, it looks great, so people put up with the fact that they don't come out as often.
And it doesn't matter if you meant it as praise, it still praises the comic-maker. :P
I've read it 4 times and I die laughing every single time
