Rather good colors for these. Nice mix of Asami and Korra colors. Team logo is also nice.

Reminder that the Women's Football World Cup begins this Saturday!

Yeah yeah, I know, it's run by FIFA, but the way things are going the venal psychopaths at the top will all be in jail by the time the trophy is hoisted by a team of lucky ladies. Besides, I doubt an oil prince has ever slid a brown envelope under a toilet stall for the chance to host the Women's World Cup.

The Basketball one doesn't have Korra or Asami available yet. I'll play and post their screens when it comes out. It's pretty fun.

She favorited my tweet suggesting Janet Varney get in on this. Awkward Korra popping the question would be adorable.

Comics confirmed but Mike is writing with Bryan popping in here and there to check on things.

So essentially it is Book Air or Book Spirits quality confirmed plus those two thinking they did a good thing by having Korra and Asami hook up at the very end.
Even if they get to expand on their relationship it will be messed up since they never did anything with it during the show. Not to mention that they'll need to continue to depower and regress Korra so she can make mistakes and inane decisions to move the plot along.
Either that or they'll turn it into the Bolin, Mako, Wu, Varrick show and praise Jinora again like they are want to do.

May it bring you joy, name user. I erased all expectations during Book 2's start and was still disappointed all the way through to the end even with the new writers. Now we are back to one writer and who even knows who will draw it. The dialogue was pitiful at times and now we don't even have the voice actors to sell the scenes to us.
I would have preferred a radio drama over comics. Or actual writers or people who still understood the character of Korra and would do more with Asami than just make her the love interest for Mako twice and Korra once.

This is excellent news! I'm especially glad that Mike & Bryan will have a more hands-on role with this book.
In other SDCC news, Gene Yang won an Eisner (the Oscars of comics) for is work on the Avatar comics. Now I respect anyone who can score an Eisner, but those comics aren't really that great. A lot of the characterization is kind of weak and the stories are missing some of the spark of originality of the show. I for one want to see Johanne Matte aka Rufftoon or Carla Speed McNeil do their own stories. Maybe this new Korra book will open up the possibilities for that.

Now, I did enjoy the comics overall. Yeah, some of it was kinda weak. As cool as the Mother of Faces was, it also felt just a little like a cop-out, but maybe it's just been too long since I've read them.

That said...we should always remember that Scott Kurtz once won an Eisner for his webcomic, PvP. An Eisner award, while prestigious, it not always gonna go to a comic that's my cup of tea, or even very many people's cup of tea...or even any good. That's not commentary on Gene's Avatar comics, it just sort of...is the way it is.

A Rufftoon Avatar comic would be fried gold, her Water Tribe fancomic was superb. Johane's probably too busy with Dreamworks storyboarding, unfortunately.

Well, that's also a part of why the Eisners are called "The Oscars of Comics". How many shitty movies have gotten Oscars when better better movies were completely ignored? Lots. Still, I think it's time to let someone else take a turn.
