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.
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…
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.
MY EMOTIONS! Finally, an official trailer for the long-awaited, much-anticipated followup to Avatar: The Last Airbender. There’s still no release date, but certainly a trailer bodes well for something soon.. Even co-creator Bryan Konietzko says so!
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.
The Oscars are upon us tonight! But in the meantime, we have the Razzies, which last night awarded M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3-D and even Worst Supporting Actor in Jackson Rathbone, who was dual-nominated for Twilight: Eclipse.
Surprisingly, that’s the only ‘award’ for any of the Twilight crew – and all the other genre offerings. Sex and the City 2 was the runner-up with three Razzies, including Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel and Worst Actress for Sarah Jessica Parker. The remaining acting awards went to Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Alba.
