Panel Play was a comic series written and drawn by Solar-Slash who later moved them to his Soapie-Solar account. These short comics are all about Pinkie Pie as we see her use her abilities to break the 4th wall in many different ways. Each comic consists of around 3-5 panels and each series is labeled next to the title.
Panel Play I
The comic starts off with Twilight Sparkle approaching Pinkie Pie and telling her that she has something interesting to say.

Thinking that Pinkie is joking around, Twilight becomes shocked and confused after Pinkie reaches out to grab the panel borders and expands the next panel.

She then resumes screaming in the last panel as she continues with falling.
