Flight 4 is out

Though it hit the major book chains last week, the anthology Flight volume 4 is now available everywhere.
What is Flight? Have a little look see at the awesome previews found here for a taste of what's in store:
http://flightcomics.com/flight4preview/

The story I had written for it originally will instead appear in the Flight Explorer book coming out early next year. Never too early to start pimping!

Now, on to more comic!


In last posts, some people mentionned Lao preparing nice drinks, having nice sheets on his bed and all. You are correct! But he's not trying to seduce Zhao. He just loves expensive things.






Now with these pages, you can almost see me coming from a mile away- I never was the type to have big story twists I'm afraid. *sigh*

Don't worry about your plot twists being blindsiding, the loop around to the watertribe weaponey goodness is still exciting and makes me go 'oooh'. Wheee! Zhao!

Awww, thank you.
I'll at least try and make it entertaining.

like sparklemagpie said. It doesn't matter if we can see it coming, I for one am still gleefully waiting for it just the same.

I love Zhao's face, it's so expressive.

Thank you! :)
You find Zhao expressive? I find myself drawing a lot of him frowning recently. Frowning or angry faces. I haven't done a lot of cocky yet. Wonder if he'll get a chance for that.

Rufftoon, are you sure you're not a story supervisor at any film and animation company?

That icon is absolutely hi-larious. Is it from something in particular, or just a cute reference to the Puppet Pals?

Oooh...Zhao gonna bust some heads....

Or not. Man, you're twisty. I did not see this coming. (But then, I have no idea where this is going, and I'm lovin' the ride.)

Congrats on the whole Flight thing!

There's definitely trouble a-comin', and Zhao's answer might just be to bash through it all.
Thanks!

Zhao knows he may well get more than just his mind digested...
rufftoon
Jul. 20th, 2007 12:03 pm (UTC)
...and definitely more than he can handle by himself.
He's gonna be in troooooouble!

Wow! I checked out that link to Flight and that is some amazing work featured there. I liked all of the different styles of drawing and coloring featured. I'll have to check it out more. :)

Definitely work for all tastes in the book (which may also mean some stories may not be to your taste, but that's the same with every anthologies.)
If you go in a bookstore, browse through the previous volumes if they are around. They are also very worth it.

Hey. Zhao. I bet his head would crunch just like a baby turtle-seal's. Juuuuuuust like.

Jul. 20th, 2007 12:26 pm (UTC)
Really? He might just have to try that.

It's not going to be simple.

The suspense is killing me!! See you soon, Johane! Are you dropping by LA first or just going straight to San Diego?
rufftoon
Jul. 20th, 2007 03:10 pm (UTC)
Yay! I have managed a sort of suspense- sweet!
Going straight to San Diego- not enough vacation time left here to take more- especially if I'm going to the Toronto show in August.
See you soooooon! *squeee!*

And now we get a glimpse perhaps of what the Ocean spirit spared him for?

Great pages!

Zhao's going to be asking himself that very same question at some point.
"That's it? That's all?...does that mean I'm off the hook now?"

What is Flight explorer? I think I have the idea in my head that its intended for younger readers or something?

Ohoho! Awesome little twist there! I was wondering if the focus on Zhao's weapons-making would come back... Though I was hoping one of Iroh's square-mouth monkey statues would be in Lao's room somewhere XD

Also I just want to say how much I love the way you do faces, so much variation is such few lines! It great to be able to discern all the chars so clearly like that...
rufftoon

Flight Explorer will defiitely be aimed for younger readers- apparently, the libraries and booksellers have been asking for titles like these, so there goes mine, and a few other Flight artists' stories transfered to it.

Maybe Lao does have one of those monkey statues somewhere. Maybe in a box. Every good pirate needs one!But he likes to smuggle Air Nomads statues most of all.

Thank you- I do find myself reusing the same head construction with ever so slight variations. I need more range!
I mean...Lao is basically my old character, Ja, with a wider nose, slanted eyes, thinner eyebrows and different haircut. Ok, that sounds like a lot of variations, but the basic head shape is the same: he's a square!

Zhao's not gonna be happy about water tribe slaves. ._.
He's all frowny and stuff, he's gonna get old quickly...
Well that's not my problem. ^^;
rufftoon
Jul. 20th, 2007 06:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I told Zhao to lighten up a bit, but he just keeps on frowning.
In any case, in this AU, he is in his late forties now. Not getting any younger...
