Official Comic news released IDW's publishing solicitations for June, 2013.
There are some news, I guess, for issue #8, micro series #5 (Pinkie Pie) and the issue #1 Treasury Edition we mentioned a while ago.
The latter is especially interesting. Not only does it contain all 48 original covers that were made for the first four issues, it's also a black & white coloring book! The complete first issue of the official comic for you to drown in colors.
As someone commented on this: Buy it and color everything incorrectly.

Look all of it up here (scroll down to the middle) or find it copypasted after the break.

Also, click the tiny previews for large high-res pop-ups.
