the best part of the idea that asami was in love with korra before she went back to the south pole is that at no time did asami ever force her feelings onto korra. like we all know that korra’s emotional state at that time was still extremely fragile and any type of love confession would have been waaaaay too overwhelming for her to handle *cough*mako in season one*cough* instead she just stood by korra’s side and offered her nothing but comfort and support even though she was already secretly in love with her,,,,,asami also respected korra’s decision to go back to the south pole alone even after she made it clear that she would have dropped everything in republic city just to go with her. anyway,,,,,,, god bless asami sato and healthy wlw relationships
'Avatar: The Last Airbender' comic gets new creators, new designs
EW has an exclusive look at Faith Erin Hicks and Peter Wartman’s take on the fantasy world

VERY EXCITED to welcome Faith Erin Hicks as the new writer and Peter Wartman as the new artist of the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics with Dark Horse! Mike and I have been working closely with Faith on the next story arc, and Peter has been turning in some awesome early artwork (some of which you can see if you click the link above, as well as reading some kind words from Faith).

Mike and I are so grateful for the many years and beautiful books our former team—Gene Luen Yang (writer) and Gurihiru (art/color)—gave to the Avatarverse, and we wish them all the best in their many exciting future endeavors. We are so lucky to have had the chance to work with you three luminaries for so long!

More New York Comic Con news! I am thrilled to be doing a signing with Irene Koh, the artist for The Legend of Korra comics, and Janet Varney, the voice actor who plays Korra. We’ll be at the Dark Horse Comics booth, #1636, on Saturday 10/7 from 10:30–11:30 AM. Dark Horse will be giving away posters of Irene’s above artwork, and they’ll have copies of “Turf Wars: Part One” for sale, along with Avatar comics and our various art books, I would assume. Hope to see you there!

(And if you missed my previous post about my other NYCC signing on Friday 10/6 at 10:30 AM, you can get the info here.)


It had been three years since I attended NYCC—or any convention—and it was such a great experience. The people who came through both signings were so warm and welcoming. Thanks to all of you for waiting in line and for all of the kind things you each had to say. It was such a trip to still see so many ATLA/LOK costumes at the signings and on the floor… 💜💜💜

A huge thanks to the staff at First Second Books and Dark Horse Comics for all of your help. And thanks to Irene Koh and Janet Varney for joining me! It was great to see you both.

I’m back in my studio in LA, grateful, excited, and recharged to dive back into my layouts for Threadworlds. Until next time!

Love, Bryan
