Of course I love books -- They're tasty and entertaining! I'm going to keep eating them until I find a story I can relate to. I don't think that's too much to ask. So until then, get out of my way!
~ Bookworm


Bookworm was the main antagonist-turned-protagonist during the Storyworld arc of IDWs My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics, based off the television show of the same name. In his struggles to find a good story, Bookworm annihilated several realities, looking for a story he can truly relate to. While his intentions weren't bad, he ended up causing chaos for the denizens of Ponyville. He does have a good heart, though, and after he realized the errors of his ways, he attempted to fix the mayhem he caused.
