The Perfect Gift by Atlur The Perfect Gift by Atlur
So, I meant to have this finished before Christmas, but then things came up that prevented me from doing so. But, I still wanted to finish it, so here you go, a Christmas-themed comic a couple days after Christmas.

This arose from a conversation I had with ~PhoeKun while out Christmas shopping. We saw one of those crystal growing kits in a toy store and the comic pretty much wrote itself.

This is the first time I've had to draw King Sombra, so that was interesting. He is certainly a unique character. Don't expect that I will have any reason to draw him again anytime soon, but I'm okay with that, hah.

Crystalsss!

Oh yeah. I was the envy of the first-grade for like... Three whole days! XD Mine had clear ones that grew flat, some sort of amethyst-type long ones, and something else. I think it was green. Only the clear ones worked well.

 And then some kid got REALLY pissed and told me I was a liar because "You can't grow crystals." I think I know two rulers who would like to speak with him... :3

Its called Stallions on Strike.

Its basically about the feminist movement but because Equestria is a matriarchy the movement is founded, led and concerned about the rights of males in their society.

Sombra is very bad character and villain no backstory and almost no lines to say, but you sure draw a really nice short comics about him.

Ok, you have officially made the first comic to cause me to lol in quite a while.

The black crystal 'tree' started me giggling, then the crystal growing kit and Sombra's gutteral utterance broke me.
