Let’s do this thing, Korra Nation!
Well, that escalated quickly. Looks like Chrimbus is coming early. You Korra fans are being rewarded for your online behavior. The last FOUR episodes of Book 2 are within your viewing pleasure this weekend. That is a big dose of Korra. I hope you enjoy the action-packed, emotional, cerebral, poetic onslaught! See you on the other side.
Watch all four finale episodes this weekend! The last 2 episodes will also still air on TV next friday as well.
The first Mega Man game celebrates its 26th anniversary this year, while its sequel is still “only” 25 years old. But it was Mega Man 2 that catapulted the Blue Bomber and his franchise to fame, and is widely considered to be one of the best videogames of all time. Created by NES modders Platinum Fungi and Custom NES Guy.
We are really excited to have Steve Yeun join us for the NYCC Korra panel where we will be screening the first of two episodes featuring him in the role of Wan, the first Avatar. He did a brilliant voice-over job and he is a really nice, hard-working guy dedicated to his craft. The EW.com link above has an exclusive clip from the beginning of the episode.
Check out this gorgeous poster of Korra and Wan, made exclusively for New York Comic Con (via Comics Alliance)
Then, tell us what questions YOU want answered at the Korra panel, where we’ll also be screening a brand new episode of LoK :)
Respond in the comments with your question for Bryan, Joaquim, Janet Varney (Korra) or PJ Byrne (Bolin).
What question do you want answered?!
This poster of Avatar Wan and Korra is what we’ll be giving away and signing at New York Comic Con. This one took a village: The rough was drawn by Joaquim Dos Santos and me; the cleanup was done by Christie Tseng, Angela Song Mueller, and Christine Bian; and I did the color. I’m really happy with how it came out, and I think it might be my favorite poster that we’ve ever done. Hopefully the printing goes well…
The Legend of Korra is coming to New York Comic Con!
It’s just like San Diego Comic-Con, minus the hyphen! It has been a long time since we made it out to a convention other than SDCC, and we know that fact bums out a lot of non-SoCal/SoCal-accessible fans. We wish that we could venture out more, but even just prepping for and visiting San Diego once a year takes a lot of time out of our jam-packed production schedule, so traveling even further for conventions is usually not an option. But we’re going to make it happen anyway for NYCC, and we’re really looking forward to it!
Unfortunately Mike can’t make it, but Joaquim and I will be joined by some special guests at the panel Saturday, October 12th at 11:00 am. Lots of cool stuff in the works for the presentation. We’re putting together a signing on that Saturday too, so I’ll update with more info when I have it.
The Legend of Korra Book 2 premieres on the East Coast in just a few minutes! Here is a piece of press art that Ryu Ki Hyun drew and I colored, with a BG painting by Frederic Stewart, an exclusive for Entertainment Weekly/EW.com. Thanks for your patience in waiting F O R E V E R for new episodes!
Bryan starting to put up some of the fan art he received yesterday at the book signing.
Back on the ATLA production, we were upstairs in the studio and over the years we covered a big wall at the top of the stairs with all sorts of fanart (you can see the before and after of this wall in the “Avatar Spirits” documentary). On the Korra production, we have been moved around the building and decentralized multiple times (I’m on my fourth office in 3.5 years), and for half of that time there was a studio-wide mandate to make things “clean and corporate.” That mandate has since passed and we’ve been encouraged to “personalize and decorate” our areas, and I think/hope I’m in the final office I’ll have on this production. After the overwhelming number of fanart gifts from you generous and talented fans at the signing last night, I decided to start another fanart wall outside of my office. Angela Mueller (character design) caught me in the act of hanging up the first pieces. Once again, THANKS!
