This year’s New York Comic Con - Legend of Korra poster is pretty epic.
Make sure you pick one up while you’re at NYCC!

Here’s the poster I made in a mad flurry recently. Kuvira’s head and shoulders are from a rough pose Ryu did for her expression sheet, otherwise you can blame the rest on me. I hope you can snag one of these at the Dark Horse booth this week at NYCC!

Channel Surfing Podcast, Episode 233 - IGN

Mike and I sat down with some nice folks over at IGN this week to discuss Book 4––which premieres online tomorrow, Friday Oct 3. Or possibly tonight at midnight, as it seems some of the streaming outlets tend to release it on the early side. Check out the video podcast in the link above. Hope you enjoy the premiere!

Our creators ladies and gentlemen.   
Image retrieved from their recent interview with Janet Varney.

Janet Varney, the illustrious voice of Korra, has a stellar podcast called the JV Club where she interviews an amazing variety of women in the entertainment industry, focusing the discussions on when they were teenagers. She had some fellas on for a change this summer, and Mike and I were honored to be among them. Check out the link above to listen. Thanks, Janet!P.S. Mike’s hair was pretty sweet, huh? That was me towards the end of my senior year of high school, at my last rowing regatta.

My fan art of Katie from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s brilliant recent graphic novel, Seconds. The man is a master storyteller with such a distinct voice. The full-color art is gorgeous. I highly recommend you pick up a copy!

The Legend of Korra: Game Release Date and New Mode, Plus What to Expect in Book 4 - IGN

Four cool videos over at IGN:

1) Interview with Robert Conkey, the producer from Activision on the upcoming Korra video game, which is to be released on October 21st!

2) A bunch of gameplay footage of the Pro-bending mode in the game, with Rob explaining everything in voice over. Dude… I can’t tell you how cool it is to see this sport we created in all of its chaos and fury––without us having to draw it. They even have the tiebreaker face-offs!

3) Interview with Mike and me about the ending of Book 3, the video game, and some tiny tidbits about where Book 4 is headed (TINY ones). I was really sleepy.

4) David Faustino (Mako) and Janet Varney (Korra) talk about love.

Thanks to the fantastic folks at IGN for having us!

With #Gurihiru (the #Avatar comics artists) Jessie Flower (voice of #Toph) and Bryan before our #darkhorse signing. #sdcc2014 #vscocam

It was great to see Chifuyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano, the comic-making powerhouse team known as Gurihiru, and the brilliant Jessie Flower (voice of Toph, as Mike noted, and also the recent voice of young Suyin Beifong)––whom I didn’t recognize because the last time I saw her she was A LITTLE GIRL AND NOT A UNIVERSITY STUDENT! Thanks to Dark Horse for hosting our signing (which also included the great Gene Yang). We had a blast.

Nice write up by Scott Thill — he asked us some of the best questions we’ve ever been asked by an interviewer. Check out the link for the interview.

Indeed, this was a really fun and stimulating interview. I encourage you to check it out!

Mike and I and our stretchy heads met some really cool fans of ATLA/LOK tonight at the second Echo Society concert featuring incredible (separate) compositions by Jeremy Zuckerman and Benjamin Wynn, the composer and the sound designer for ATLA/LOK, respectively. Enriching conversation ensued!
