Busy bizzness

As some of you may know already, Nick Magazine will be making more Avatar comics! Great news, and I'm happy to be helping along once again. I'll hopefully be doing a few stories with the help of Josh Hamilton (staff writer on Avatar), and other talented folks like Katie Matilla, Justin Ridge, aliwildgoose and many others.
As far as I know, none of the stories will be set after the end of season 3. I guess everything set during the three seasons and before is fair game, mwahaha!
All the stories will be for all ages. Hope you will enjoy.

And if I feel like putting some kickbutts moments...I'll vent that need in Water Tribe.












Everything goes downhill from here- yay!
(Horuk's been downhill already, and is not looking forwards to more downhill rides...)

Man, those poor fish...they really don't get a break, do they? ^_^;

Love that first shot of the oasis, and how lush you manage to make it look, even in black and white!

(Also, Dave sent me your first round of designs, and OH MAN, SO CUTE AND CHARMING! My excitement about all of this just grows and grows and grows! <3 <3 <3 )

No fish ever gets a break, not even ones that are physical incarnations of spirits.
I've actually just sat down to try and do more designs. Hoping to hit a right note somewhere so there's something to work from quickly.

WOW Surprise, surprise!!
OMG thank you!!! I didn't know there was going to be more Avatar comics! First news I got!!! I'm so happy about it, though I would like them to be stories post-season three !!
Now on Water Tribe... plan failed!!! Azula always surprises me, and got me scared, of course.
Hope the poor-cute-spirit fishes end up alive after all this!
And that Zhao can get some help from out there!! (I want Nauja now!!! :D )
Anyway, amazing work, as usual!! Congrats!!!
Good luck, Bye-bye!!! ♥

Re: WOW Surprise, surprise!!
I was also very happy to learn about more comics (and even more happy to be able to share the good news). Keep an eye out for issues of Nick Magazine!

Heh, since when have Zhao's plan ever succeeded? You know he'll be trying to save his situation now. Nauja's busy trying to help Arluk.

Azula ANGRY! Azula SMASH! D:< *throws trashcan at car*

Someone forgot to take their Saint John's Wart before the mission...

More like Azula burns.
She gets pissed when someone turns against her, but she's doing way better than before in terms of keeping her head together.

So Zhao tried to trick her into thinking that the spirits were still in spirity form. Oh yes, that was a really big gamble which sadly Zhao lost. Now he's screwed. I only hope Horuk and pals can come to the rescue before Azula serves bbq fish patties with a side order of Zhao fries.

That's what happens when you think the other person knows less than you.
One order of Zhao fries coming right up!

C'mon Zhao, that's it? That's all what you have?!? ARGH! D:

We're not done quite done yet (but Zhao's plan is pretty much shot out of the water).

Man, that's what I love about Azula. She does Xanatos Gambits as well as, well, Xanatos himself. Maybe better. Most other villians have to rely on the heroes laying out the plan so the audience knows what's going on (if a plan is explained, it'll always fail). But Azula...no, she's always ten steps ahead.


I LOVE THESE COMICS SO MUCH!!!


I'm so glad to hear there'll be more comics! But dangit, take 'em out of the Mag, Nick, and make it a monthly thing. Or something... crud, I'm gonna hafta make nice to my stepbrother to borrow his nick mag...

I would buy collected Avatar "manga" graphic novels. Definitely.

WOW. Can't wait to see the rest of this. Oh, Zhao! How will you survive this one?

We'll see if being with the Water Tribe increased his luck quota.

Would all Northern Water Tribe people know the Ocean and Moon Spirits are fish? Wouldn't that info be on a need-to-know basis instead (shaman, elders)? Hmm. If Azula already knew about the spirit-fish, why does she still need Zhao? Sacrifice? Bargaining chip? How does she intend to influence the Avatar with the Water spirits?

So many questions to be answered in future Water Tribe pages! I'm looking forward to how the story unfolds. (And I miss Nauja too.)

Sorry to hear about your e-mail troubles, rufftoon. Maybe it was a database error? Changing passwords and checking for viruses is good to do though.

They always thought the secret would be the best guard. Throw in a lot of guys with spears around the place, and people may start wondering what's over there. Besides, there are guards all over the palace.
It would also damage a bit of the sacredness. Spirits, they like their place not too crowded.

Oh, crossing fingers for more of your stuff in the magazine!! Eeeee!

Also, eeeeee, fireflamystuff! Poor Zhao, he's not getting a break, either!

...is it wrong of me to hope for manifestation of the moon to go do evil crescent eyes at Azula? >_>
rufftoon
Oct. 20th, 2008 03:21 pm (UTC)
Definitely working on more stuff for the mag.
Zhao never gets a break. Not from me, mwahaha!
Ha ha, nothing wrong with wishing some moon spirit pounce or evil eye of some sort.

It's a good thing you have so much practice. :D
Awesome, I look forward to more comics from you, in any capacity! :D

I was thinking, it would be a great move for Nick to start putting out full, over-arching plotline comics rather than shorts. They'd have a pretty big market for them!

In any case, Noo, Zhao!!

Re: It's a good thing you have so much practice. :D
As long as the plan is to have the comics only in the magazine, I don't think they'd be doing that sort of plot (unfortunately). I don't think they've ever done a series of books or stories like that either, and may be reluctant to jump on that market.

Azula's gonna have a fish fry!

More like a fish bowl- she's not actualy planning on killing them fishies.

This is great - you're gunning on all cylinders! One small suggestion would be for p. 307 - to switch pn.4 with pn.5 and vice versa.

Cheers,

WOOOOOOOOW!!!! This is really getting interesting!! I like the way you portray Azula, always ten steps ahead! I wonder what she is planning to do... Zhao would need to be prepared xDDD

Also I am happy to see that there would be more Avatar comics! =D I love your work!! *__*

I don't know how many steps ahead she is, but Zhao has a bad tendency to underestimate people.
There will be many good artists helping with the Avatar comics. I can't wait to see what the others do!
