what happened to zuko's mother?Dark Horse continued to up the "Avatar" ante with its graphic novel series "The Promise," which helps fill in the gap between the end of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "Legend of Korra." Written by "American Born Chinese" creator Gene Luen Yang with art by Gurihiru Studios, the three-part graphic novel series wraps in September -- but that doesn't mean it's the end of Avatar Aang's adventures.what happened to zuko's mother?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This weekend at the American Library Association, Dark Horse announced Yang and Gurihiru will return for a second "Avatar: The Last Airbender" graphic novel series called "The Search," which explores the biggest unsolved mystery in "Avatar" lore: what happened to Prince Zuko's mother?
CBR News spoke with Yang, a longtime "Avatar: The Last Airbender" fan, about his work on "The Search," wrapping up "The Promise, his feelings about "Legend of Korra," the challenge of linking the two shows and their characters together and the return of Princess Azula.

Slowly, So Slowly A muffled cry took Zander from his book. He looked around wildly, and was on his feet in an instant when he heard a louder scream. A scream that sounded like his name. A scream that came from Aida's cabin. Maybe it wasn't practical for him to go to her, when Sky and Jace were both nearer, but he had never before been practical when Aida was concerned. He was out on the deck in a flash, the light in his cabin still on and the door swinging on its hinges because he didn't bother to shut it. Nothing in there held higher value to him than Aida's wellbeing.Slowly, So Slowly2 years ago in Personal More Like This
No one else had gone to her cabin. He rapped quickly on the door, praying something terrible hadn't happened.
"Aida?" he said hesitantly. "Did you just call me?"
She muttered something to herself from the inside, and then padded on bare feet—shoes made a very different sound—to throw her door open. Her eyes when they looked up at him were stra
Missing the PointI've been noticing a trend lately where people seem to deliberately be missing the point behind stuff in order to complain. I used to think it was just me, as I watched people write up lengthy articles nitpicking and "debunking" a comic I made because they simply missed the point, but I've started seeing it happening to other people too.Missing the Point3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently over on The Oatmeal, artist Matthew Inman made a joke about guy gamers vs girl gamers. The joke was pretty simple: A guy gamer makes a mistake and gets bitched out by his fellow teammates online. Contrast to that, a girl gamer makes a mistake and her fellow teammates try to comfort her, tell her she's doing great, and make suggestive comments about hooking up. To me the joke was clear, guys treat girls differently online. However, that's not how the rest of the internet saw it...
From what I've read of the whole Oatmeal flare up, the reasons for the hate seem grounded in the fact he depicted the girl as blond and bubbly (ie: stupid) and not as
Unpopular opinion? on Korra ep 05As part of my ongoing quest to be really nerdy, I'm going to oblige the people who sent me notes asking what I thought of "The Spirit of Competition" and what my fave Korra ship(s) are etc. Just a little warning: I'm probably not in the majority with my opinion on this episode, so...here's an opportunity to expand your horizons.Unpopular opinion? on Korra ep 053 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, I'd like to say that I am a HUGE fan of A:TLA and so far am liking LOK a lot. So take this as an individual episode critique, not a series critique. It's still too early for that with Korra.
So. Pema and Tenzin. A romance for the ages. That was sarcasm, in case you were wondering. With their relationship comes my first major problem with ep 05: the way the romantic elements were handled. Let's get this straight. Pema stole Tenzin away from the woman he was dating? And then she recommended to an emotionally confused, EXTREMELY tactless teenage girl that she do the same thing, without getting any of the background information? And nobody sees the pr

P.J. Byrne's MTVGeek Twitter TakeoverYou asked questions and P.J. (Bolin) responded! Here are a few things we got from the session:P.J. Byrne's MTVGeek Twitter Takeover3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Byrne watches Legend of Korra when he gets the chance and "feels 10% stronger" when Bolin kicks butt
He eats lots of noodles and jellybeans to channel Bolin's sassy and funny character
He was a fan of Avatar before working on Legend of Korra
Pabu or Naga? Byrne replies: "Pabu. All day and all night."
His favourite Bolin line: (to Naga) "I want to be on your back."
Byrne would want to play Bolin if there was a live action movie of Legend of Korra. He comments: "Fo Sho! Need to hit the gym beforehand, though."
Byrne has 11 Red Pandas (fire ferrets)
Bolin will get more character development in Book 2
Byrne doesn't feel that Bolin has been taken a backseat in the last few episodes, he replies: "Not at all! WE are team avat

Who's Benjamin? I think. That's an excellent question.
Benjamin. A boy who paints what he wants to see. A dreamer. A friend. A warm summer night on the rooftop, a hot air balloon, a sea of whispering grass backlit by a kerosene lamp and the fireflies that flickered like sparks from a bottle-rocket. A match-giver, a soft-spoken superhero, a tear-choked goodbye in the shadow of the stars. A boy who was, and will forever remain seventeen years old, who died to make his bird fly once more.
But what happened to you, Benjamin Thomas? What happened to my poor, sweet boy? What could you have done to deserve the darkness that befell you despite all of your hopeless, misguided kindness? Could it be that you were born into a world that was just not ready?
You lived your life before its time—a life meant for the pages of a beautiful book, had your story only been written! You could have been a poem, an epic: lyrical, grand,

We have decided our theme will be Creativity is Cool
This contest is somewhat different: We will provide you with different stock images: Four of people, four of interior shots, four of outdoor/landscape images and four 'unusual or 'difficult' images. Now your mission is to choose one (or more) of those and get as creative with it as possible! You can use any part of the stock images in any way you like--so long as it's recognizable as having come from the image. Imagine all the different possibles!
Here pure skill is not as important- A perfect portrait might get not as much recognition as a really creative piece with the same stock base.
THE STOCK IMAGES
STYLE RANTIf you ask me the word "style" is misused and underutilized to be of much use to people discussing something as vast and varied as art. Currently the way "style" works, is people will group a bunch of artists based on trivial common ground and then slap a "style" label to it with whatever word that happens nearby. Now when you hear that word, you think of one image in your brain to summarize a bunch of people. Most people think for instanceSTYLE RANT3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Indy style = Black and white autobiographical comics with chicken scratch linework.
When it should actually mean
Indy = Independent = Self made
Anime style = Big eyes, tiny noses, high saturation, cute shit
When it actually means
Anime = Animation in Japanese = Animation from Japan
An actual USEFUL way to define "art style" would be by motivation for instance:
