Avatar Magazine #2 [Sep. 18th, 2007|12:46 pm]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry
[Tags|]




The long-awaited Season 3 of Avatar: The Last Airbender starts airing on Nickelodeon, September 21st. The official comics magazine will be on newsstands Sept 18th, just a few days before.

The magazine includes over 30 pages of all-new comics, featuring adventures that take place between seasons 2 and 3 of the highly acclaimed TV show! These comics are the collaboration of writers and artists from the show along with acclaimed comic artists Amy Kim Ganter (Sorcerers and Secretaries), Reagan Lodge (Flight), Bryan Ralph (Cave In, Daybreak), and Johane Matte (Teen Titans Go!, Flight).

The comics were all brainstormed by the show writers as a bridge between the seasons, elaborating on major plot jumps that take place. Which, if you’ve been watching, is sort of a big deal since the end of Season 2 was so HEAVY and altered the fates of several main characters (yes, there are spoilers for people not caught up). And of course, per usual Nick Mag style, all these stories are drawn by awesome cartoonists, so extra bonus for comics readers!
I think Avatar, is pretty much the best show (animated or otherwise) on TV right now, so this was a dream job for me. All of the talented writers and artists who worked on it really put their ALL into making something we (as well as the creators of the show) could be proud of. It is also a complete love letter to the fans. And several contributors who worked on it actually came from the fan community.


The best place to find a copy is the magazine section of a bookstore chain like Barnes and Noble or Chapters/Indigo.

If you have trouble finding one check here:

There is also a great contest over at Avatarspirit.net for those of you who have already bought a copy!








COMIC STORIES:

“The Bridge”
Story by Josh Hamilton and Tim Hedrick with Aaron Ehasz. Script by Frank Pittarese. Art and Color by Reagan Lodge.

After the fall of Ba Sing Se, the gang meets up with Hakoda and the Water Tribe to plan their next move. With the Avatar wounded and out of commission, do they stand a chance against the approaching Fire Nation fleet?

“Going Home Again”
Story by Aaron Ehasz, May Chan, and Katie Mattila. Script by Katie Mattila with Alison Wilgus. Art by Amy Kim Ganter. Color by Wes Dzioba.

Azula refuses to take no for answer when Zuko chooses to stay in Ba Sing Se, rather than return to the Fire Nation as a hero alongside her.
Thus a plan is set in motion that involves false pretenses, the Dai Li, and reigniting an old flame.



“It’s Only Natural”
Story by Josh Hamilton and Johane Matte.
Art by Johane Matte. Color by Wes Dzioba.

Sokka helps the Earth King prepare his royal bear Bosco for life in the wild. Hilarity ensues and lessons are learned…but by whom?

“Momo in Fruitstand Freestyle”
Story and Art by Brian Ralph.

A silent story about everyone’s favorite wicked little critter doing what he does best…getting into trouble!

“Gym Time”
Story by Alison Wilgus. Art by Ethan Spaulding. Color by Wes Dzioba.

In the spirit of “School Time Shipping” the Avatar gang goes super-deformed for dodgeball antics. Oh, the mayhem!
