SO MUCH LOVE TODAY!! Congratulations America. You are basking in a spectrum of love and pride! Finally!
But, I will stay on topic now…
I am posting the fan panel details now because I do not want there to be any confusion. It seems there is a Dark Horse Avatar the Last Airbender panel with the awesome Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko on Friday, July 10th.
The fan panel is not associated with this panel, though our panel is the very next day, at the very same time, in the very same room…
SO, without waiting another moment, here are the details for the Avatar Legacy Fan Panel: Legend and Legacy SDCC 2015:
10:00am – 11:00am Avatar the Last
Airbender – Legend and Legacy: The story of Aang and Korra has ended in one
form, but continues in graphic novels and through the fans. For over 6 years,
Avatar Legacy has been hosting panels celebrating the fan’s love and loyalty.
Moderated by Avatar_Mom, this year we welcome the talented Magda Escobedo Bazaldúa (Fan Artist), Kevin Coppa (Puppetbenders), Giancarlo
Volpe (Director ATLA - Producer Green Lantern the Animated Series), Aaron Ehasz (Head Writer-Avatar the Last Airbender), Dante Basco (Voice Actor-Zuko), Jack DeSena (Voice Actor-Sokka), and Darcy Rose Byrnes (Voice Actor – Ikki).
We may even have surprise guests! The panel also hosts a cosplay contest open
to all levels of skill. Hopefuls must be in the panel room to be considered by
our scouts. Room 25ABC
We will have a live reading with the voice actors during the panel and a Q&A if time permits (so lets make sure that happens! woo!). Also, there will not be a live martial arts demonstration this year. SDCC seemed a bit nervous about any interactions on the floor. This year, fans who have been inspired by the series to study martial arts, shared their photos and videos with our panel! Thanks loves!
To help fans who cannot attend the fan panel, we are having a few online contests. Winners will be announced at the fan panel!
One is a haiku contest that was recently announced. So far there have been a few entries, but we need more in order to have enough to choose from. Jack De Sena will read the winning haiku at the panel!
The second contest is still being hammered out. It will be an Avatar crafts contest. This is great for all the jewelry makers, knitters, paper artists, doll makers, etc. We are deciding on a few factors before we announce the contest. So stay tuned!
This is my favorite time of year. I can’t wait to see so many of you again. So exciting!
My name is Cecil Castellucci. My first boyfriend was Batman. I invited him to my fourth birthday party. He came and gave me some Bat Binoculars and I’ve been reading comics ever since. Actually, I was probably reading comics before I could read.
I am an author and I am lucky enough to write comics. I wrote The PLAIN Janes and Janes in Love for the DC Comics Minx line (illustrated by Jim Rugg). I wrote the hybrid novel The Year of the Beasts (illustrated by Nate Powell) I wrote Odd Duck (illustrated by Sara Varon) (And it was just nominated for an Eisner!) I’ve written The Green Lantern Animated Series issue #11. Had a story in Vertigo’s Ghosts #1. Womanthology Space #5. Wrote Aquaman and Mera in Young Romance #1 and have a graphic novel Pearl in the Rough out on Dark Horse next year with Joe Infurnari. I am looking forward to writing a billion more comics and reading a billion more comics. I LOVE COMICS! I AM COMICS!
