ATLA panel at SDCC on Sunday July 24th, Korra not mentioned.
Bit of a weird SDCC announcement this time. EVERYONE in the fandom has been waiting for the announcement of what is up with Korra comics, tomorrow July 10th marks 1 year since the initial announcement at last year’s SDCC. Dark Horse have now revealed their full schedule for the convention and right now they are not mentioning anything Korra related. Weird given their tweet, the last update from them on Korra comics.
Here are the two panels where they could potentially talk about Korra comics.
Saturday July 23rd 3:00 p.m.â€“4:00 p.m. Â 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF DARK HORSEÂ (Room 7AB)
Thirty years ago, Dark Horse arrived with an agenda different from that of any other publisher in comics. The young company was founded on the belief that comics creators should have the option to retain the rights to their own work, and it continues to be a highly fertile breeding ground for new characters, concepts, and more! Now, the publisher is poised to make headlines again with some of the biggest news about new original work since Frank Miller brought Sin City to the pages of Dark Horse Presents! Join panelists for an exclusive look at upcoming and unannounced creator-owned work from some of the biggest names in and outside the industry! This will be the comics panel everyone will be talking about at this yearâ€™s show!
Sunday July 24thÂ 12:00 p.m.â€“1:00 p.m.Â AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDERâ€”SPOTLIGHT ON GENE YANG!Â (Room 24ABC)
Please come celebrate Nickelodeonâ€™s Avatar: The Last Airbender with the brilliant mind of Eisner winnerÂ Gene Luen YangÂ and special guests! Anything from discussing past story lines to teasing the future will be on the table at a panel full of surprises and behind-the-scenes stories!
The confusing thing here is that we are getting an ATLA panel, but it is focused on ATLA and Gene Yang which to me suggests focus on North and South with the teases and surprises more about what is next for ATLA comics as opposed to Korra comics. That said they hint at special guests and for Avatar comics who could this be? For me these people fit: Mike, Bryan, Team Gurihiru and potentially the new Korra artist if they are planning a reveal.
The Main Dark Horse panel of course is focused on 30 years of Dark Horse and has no specifics about any comics really. We know Avatar and Korra is a huge license for them so it would make sense to have a big Korra comics reveal during such a big panel for the company.
Overall, very hard to tell what is going to happen. At the very least we are getting focus on the Avatar comics with the panel being “full of surprises” and about “teasing the future”
