Dark Horse announces Brian Wood Star Wars story as part of Free Comic Book Day 2013

Dark Horse Comics announced their stories for their two Free Comic Book Day releases. The publisher will continue their tradition of having flip covers, but will have three different stories in each comic book.

In their all-ages book, the Star Wars story by Brian Wood and stars both Darth Vader and Boba Fett. Also in that book will be a story about Mai from Avatar: The Last Airbender, and a peek into the upcoming series, Captain Midnight, about the search for a superhero gone missing.

In the other comic, we get a trio of stories: R.I.P.D. (by Jeremy Barlow), Mass Effect and a preview of the police-state world of The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. The best part? They’re free! The worst part? Having to wait until Free Comic Book Day 2013, which is Saturday, May 4.

Roundup: What’s been cooking at the Tumblr

So the CJ Tumblr is coming along. It was born from last-minute disappointment, but I’ve actually found it fairly useful for stuff that I just don’t have the time to really blog. (It’s the new fandom minute!) This week we’ve featured so far, among other things…

The Legend of Korra debuts tomorrow on Nick

Sure, the episode has been online (the whole shebang is currently a free download on iTunes) but tomorrow brings the shows’s official debut on Nickelodeon. 11:00 a.m. Be there.

In the meantime, you’ll want to check out a whole bunch of extras over at Korra Nation (particularly the Republic City tour) and an interview with Janet Varney, who voices Korra.

Watch Legend of Korra RIGHT NOW

'The Legend of Korra'

As promised, Nickelodeon has released the premiere (two episodes) of Legend of Korra online now, weeks before their television debut.

UPDATE: The episodes were only up for a limited time, and now you’ll have to wait until the TV premiere on April 14 to see them legitimately. Sorry!

UPDATE, AGAIN: Except for the part where they’re currently a free download on iTunes.

Nickelodeon to debut Legend of Korra on April 14

Nickelodeon has finally announced the premiere date of the highly-anticipated follow up to Avatar: The Last Airbender. The Legend of Korra will debut Saturday, April 14, at 11:00 a.m. and I am too excited for words. KORRA KORRA KORRA KORRA KORRA! Or, basically:

Nick recently launched an official site for the show, and has been releasing clips from the show there.

Who’s excited for A:TLA followup Legend of Korra?

Debuting at SDCC was the first trailer for Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender followup, Legend of Korra. Last Airbender Fans has a wrapup of the panel. It looks pretty damn cool, no?

And, bonus hilarity: The teaser hasn’t even been out a week and there’s not only tons of fan art around, but I’ve heard there are actual ship wars. Oh, fandom.

The only negative? Still no premiere date other than sometime next year…

Missed the Star Wars comic at Free Comic Book Day?

Not able to make it to a comic shop Saturday? Or were they out of the Star Wars comic before you got there? Well, stop your moping: Dark Horse will be putting their offerings up for free on Digital.DarkHorse.com come Wednesday. You don’t even need to download an app – you can read them right in the browser.

Dying for more details on Legend of Korra?

The Wall Street Journals’ Speakeasy blog has been breaking news about the new series from the folks behind Avatar: the Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra.

On Monday, they have us our first look at the face of series’ title character, Korra – she was facing away from us in the initial art.

Tuesday brought casting info: Janet Varney will be voicing Korra, with J.K. Simmons as her airbending teacher, Aang’s son Tenzin. You’ll probably recognize Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson, aka the best part of the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies. We don’t know anything about the rest of the characters, but other familiar voices include Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, ATLA’s General Fong,) Lance Henriksen (remember Millennium?) Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) and David Faustino (Married With Children.) Perhaps the most controversial name? Seychelle Gabriel, who played Princess Yue in M. Night Shyamalan’s much-maligned Airbender adaption. But folks, let’s cut her some slack: It’s not like she scripted or directed the thing.

Wednesday we got an interview with series creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, where they reveal that Nickelodeon ordered an additional 14 episodes – which brings the total number to 26! Go read it.
