mine: legend of korra

SDCC, thank you!

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to all the lovely people who came out to SDCC and attended the panel and signing; to all the queer folks who poured their hearts out; to the fans, both veteran and new; to everyone who just wanted to say hi or tell me they liked my art; and to those who helped make the presale books sell out every day of the con (DH had to overnight a bigger batch every day!):

THANK YOU. From my the bottom of my heart, thank you. I was unbelievably moved.

This job has me pretty isolated for most of the time until con season rolls around, and it’s always such a warm reminder of how special it all is. I love seeing all the discourse, both positive and critical, because it’s all so very thoughtful and makes us all better. I loved meeting fellow ATLA/Korra fans and geeking out with all of you (and Janet!). I hope y’all enjoy the book in one way or another, and if anyone is coming to the Bay Area comic shops I listed previously for signings this week, see you then!!

What's one of your favorite moments of Korra and Asami's relationship?

My favorite moment, or one of them at least, the first to come to mind, is at the end of book 3, when Korra is in the wheelchair–but not the scene where Asami all but confesses her love and promises to be there for Korra. Though that is the moment I sold all my worldly possessions and decided to live on this ship forever. But no. My favorite moment is shortly thereafter, when Raiko is talking to Korra and she looks miserable, and Asami, looking down, can tell that Korra doesn’t want to talk about responsibility or danger or being the Avatar, or anything Raiko wants to lay down. Then Asami politely, but firmly, ends the conversation, “I think we better get inside,” or something like it, not drawing attention to Korra’s infirmity, not needing to ask to tell how miserable Korra is, but in tune with her all the same.

  • Disney: We can't have like... A canon gay main character. That would disrupt our viewer base too much!
  • Nickelodeon: Just... Sneak it in man, make it subtle. These kids are smart they'll figure it out. Release comics and stuff dude. Get on it.
  • Cartoon Network: JUST FUCKING GAY IT UP BRUH, MAKE EVERYTHING GAY! Steven Universe? GAY! Amazing World of Gumball? GAY! Adventure Time? HOLY FLAMING JESUS BALLS YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT'S GAY! YOU GET A GAY, AND YOU GET A GAY. GAY ALL ROUND!

I really enjoy the irony that in the avatar universe typically:

firebenders/people from the fire nation seem cold and keep their emotions hidden

waterbenders/people from the water tribes are hotheaded and passionate

earthbenders/people from the earth kingdom are lighthearted jokesters

airbenders/people from the air temples are grounded and level headed

“We will be together for all of your lifetimes. And we will never give up.”

Here it is, folks! “Harmony”- the centerpiece and final entry of my triptych tribute to the amazing, forever-inspiring “Avatar: The Last Airbender” and “The Legend of Korra” series! It’s been a long time coming, but I hope you all enjoy! Together, “Peace,” “Harmony,” and “Balance” equate my love and affection for such a phenomenal project that achieved so much. Thank you Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino for your vision that has been nothing short of one of the greatest animated series I’ve ever known!
