Will you consider Season 10 canon?
Having Season 10 be in the comics is a mistake, IMO.
The comics gave us such terrible stories as Reflections, Siege of the Crystal Empire, and Cosmos.
My pardon if this is the wrong thread for this comment, but according to DriveThruRPG, which also sells comics, they’re dropping all of their IDW titles at the end of December. How bad is news like this for IDW and the MLP comics? Their sales seem to be dropping more and more; it used to be that the local comic shops couldn’t even keep MLP:FiM in stock. Now I see them having a backlog extending for several months on the shelves. Heck, not even Pencils’ stuff is selling locally and he’s a great artist.
Does this mean that IDW is going out of business?
I understand that the whole American comics business is doing very poorly.
We can only wait how Season 10 will turn out.
Season 10 will turn into the new canon, which could be a good thing or a bad thing.
One thing that I really wished for the comics is for their arcs to be a bit more longer, to take their time to tell what is need to be necessary, more detail and such.
Unfortunately, the comics are basically short stories, limited to two or four issues maximum, after that, they jump into other plots. This limits their writing, which provokes anti-climatic endings if the plot involves action or epic stories.
Or just full of repetition with no difference in them.

Or being used as an excuse for the writers and artists to introduce and shill their own characters at the story and protagonist’s expenses. Fortunately, eventually Hasbro and IDW decided to step in and put some restrictions to this, even if it happened a bit too late.
The question is: Who is restricted? I guess Radiant Hope, Miss Pommel, Suri Polomare, Babs Seed (hasn’t appeared at all since FF37 which is why I’m putting her here), all Season 9 characters, the Season 9 villains, the Reflections counterparts, anyone created by someone no longer working for IDW, and any new characters IDW creates unless approved.
So the first “episode” of season 10 for the comics, will involve Twilight sending Applejack, Tempest Shadow, Zecora, and Rockhoof to go on a mission to Zecora’s home country, where they discover more about her and the Zebras, and also learn about kelpies
