So much Korra love!

bean
I hope most of you managed to see the two episodes of Korra this weekend. If not, it will be broadcasted April 14th on Nickelodeon.
I know it's hard if you live outside the US territories. Hope everyone can see them soon!
I could gush on and on and on and on and on and on and on about how I enjoyed them. They've raised the bar: beautiful animation, the art (backgrounds and all), the music, everything is just...*wow*. My head is spinning that a show if this quality and craftsmanship is being helmed here in North America (with help from overseas, but so are most animation projects so...not an excuse!).

Work on Guardians is moving at a brisk pace. The movie is out in November this year! We'll be sandwiched between "Twilight and "Hobbit", so any hopes of a #1 spot is pretty nil. But hey, if we can stay in the top 5, I'd be happy.

And finally, FINALLY we'll have a trailer out, in theater April 6th. Possibly online before that, but I have no dates or extra informations about it.
This is only the first, a teaser. Like other movies, there will be other trailers eventually.
Just posted two little comics with "The Thing In The Closet" while waiting for the trailer.
I had deleted the older comics. Personal reasons, didn't want them online anymore (so if any of you saved them, thank you but please don't repost).

Yes! I lucked out and watched Korra earlier today. I knew who those hair loopies belonged to, the moment I saw them XD I thought they did a very good job.

That Zhao. Always so cruel, to a thirsty flatmate.

What's the fun with power if you don't get to abuse people with it?
(Zhao's point of view,not mine, of course).

This is true. Still funny, though!

I hope that I can see the first two episodes of Korra soon. I don't live in the USA so I wasn't able to see them :(

I do believe, if you hunt a bit around, that you may be able to see them. Or you may have to be very patient, and I know how hard that can be.
If only the companies would adapt quickly to this new world where everyone is connected. They can keep their exclusive within their territories, but perhaps make the content available outside for a small fee (say 1$).
Something.
There will be changes in the future. There will have to be.

Thanks to the internet, I managed to see it and IT WAS GLORIOUS!!!

I laughed at the 'Zuko's mum' bit. That was pure evil genius. I loved the humor in these 2 episodes : Zuko's mum, Pema's face with she talks about the 'joy' of raising bender kids, Tenzin's face when he gets angry and Jinora's 'I make no such promises'. Absolutely wonderful!

Yep, I caught Korra last night. That was really well done. I had to pause it though when they did the "what happened to Zuko's mother" bit, I was laughing so hard. Can't wait to see the series unfold!

Also still looking forward to the Guardians, will be spending a lot of time in the theater this autumn, I can already tell!

Ha ha, they were evil for the Zuko's mom bit, and I LOVE THEM for it!

Thank you for reminding me that it was up! I got to see it. YAY!!!!!!

Hopefully non-spoilery... Korra reminds me of Toph a lot. Like, if Toph were Avatar...

Oh man, if Toph had been the Avatar...the possibilities!!

Zhao is such a loveable asshole XD I'm so excited for April 14th. And it will be so awesome to see Rise of the Guardians too in theaters! <3

I also can't wait for April 14th (glorious big screen!!)
The whole crew hopes Guardians will be well received. As I said, the chances it beats Twilight are slim, but if it can hold on...

Thank you for posting this! I just managed to see Korra in time, even though I had to stay up pretty late. I like her even more than I thought I would.

Poor 'Thing In The Closet'. I hope his coming-out is spectacular.

Glad you managed to catch the premiere! It is definitly worth repeat viewings (April 14th, yeah!!)

Ahhhh, the show was just gorgeous! I'm totally with you gushing about the quality of everything from music, to bending, to characters interacting - they spared no expense! I can't wait to watch this on my HDTV~

I have your Roommates series saved (just because everything you draw brings me so much joy.) It is totally safe with me and they will have to raid my personal PC to pry it from my digital archives. (Am waiting patiently for the-dude-from-the-closet to finally make an appearance once that Guardians trailer comes out. ^_~)

So much fanart to do! :D This is totally one of my favorite relationship dynamics on the show right now. http://fav.me/d4tvezd

Ha ha, I love that image you linked to! It is perfect!

And thanks for keeping the comics offline, it is appreciated. I am currently working on making the "Thing in the closet"'s coming out, the moment the trailer airs (pays to be prepared, sometimes).
I don't know if you'll call his appearance memorable, but..

Oh gosh, I was so excited I almost cried... THEY HAD THE SECOND EPISODE UP TOO, I couldn't believe it. ToT

The animation quality of Avatar has always been good, but you're right, they really upped the bar for this one. It was just stunning. And the music, ugghhhhhhh... I hope they do manage to put out the OST, I love every song I've heard so far!
