This week, for Geek Music Monday, we celebrated Bronies – male fans of the animated television series, My Little Pony. I thought we would stick with the MLP theme for Webcomic Wednesday.

In the spotlight this week is Dr. Adorable’s Ask-Along Blog! Strictly speaking, this is not solely a webcomic. However, it is a fantastic example of when geek worlds collide. deviantARTist, Giant Mosquito has taken his love of My Little Pony and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, tossed them in a blender and the result is a fun and entertaining parody in the form of a Tumblr blog. Every so often someone, or some pony, will write in to Dr. Adorable with questions. The responses appear in the form of a comic strip featuring My Little Pony Fluttershy as Dr. Adorable, along with a number of other characters to help illustrate the response.
Dr. Adorable’s Ask-Along Blog has become so popular, it has inspired other artists to pay tribute. An example of the inspired projects is the strip by deviantARTist Unoservix (clip below) that plays out the action to the Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog song, “Brand New Day.”
