Mike and I received an advance copy of the first Korra art book from Dark Horse today! Looks great. There’s Ryu flipping through the pages, walking down memory lane. It is breaking my heart that this won’t be available until something like *one week* after this year’s San Diego Comic Con. ARGH!
I’m excited to share with you the final cover art (Korra drawn by Joaquim Dos Santos and painted by me, with a background painting by Fred Stewart) for the upcoming Korra Book One: Air art book, published by our good friends at Dark Horse Books. This was a real labor of love (heavy on the labor) for Mike, Joaquim, and me and all those who helped as we put this book together, and we are so proud of all the great artists’ work inside and can’t wait to share it with all of you. The plan is to do one of these art books per “book” of Korra (so four total), which is daunting yet fantastic.

Korra Art Of Book!
I believe the term is “shut and take my money”
Yes, it is true! We are excited to announce that we are currently working on an art book, with Dark Horse again, for Book One of Korra (in fact, I have to work on it tonight). This *is not* the cover, though. We just used the press art from the finale as a temporary cover for solicitation purposes. Joaquim and I are still cooking up the real cover…
I’ve been officially SDCC’d. Photo by Brandon Hoang at the Nick booth yesterday.
It was great to meet tons of fans all day and spot *SO MANY* Korra/Avatar costumes. (I’ll post a bunch later.) The panel was really cool but it was a huge bummer that so many people were turned away at the doors because people just camp out in the seats all day for subsequent panels. That’s just the way it goes, especially in those bigger rooms with the more popular panels. I don’t know what Comic Con could do to improve that situation, but it seems like there has to be a better way.
One more signing left! We’ll be at the Dark Horse booth today at 2:00. I’m not sure if they did that ticket system again for the spots in line, but I’d say if they did and you didn’t get a ticket, come anyway. Last year they didn’t give out enough tickets and the line was pretty thin halfway through the signing. See you there!
