More Comic Con news

9 Comments

Comic Con is over for another year, but we are now getting out final few pieces of news.

First of all some merchandise that was available, but we missed out on seeing until now.

Thanks to OwlDee on Tumblr we have images of some of the Chibi Korra badges that were available. From what I can gather there were 25 to collect with some characters having multiple badges for different expressions. With these we get the debut of many Korra characters in Chibi form.

Secondly we have an interesting interview with Mike, Bryan and Gene Yang.

The big news to take out of this is three things

-Bryan off handedly confirms that there are two animation studios working on Korra, this was not mentioned during the panel, but has been speculated by fans for months now. So Pierrot Co. are confirmed to be working on Korra also, they animate episode 1 of Book 2.
-Lin is confirmed to have only a very small role in Book 2, but will have a bigger part in Book 3 and 4. The reason is that Book 2 is not very republic city focused and Lin is a character who is focused on the city.
-Possibly most interesting of all Gene Yang in reference to this mentioned that we will be seeing a lot more of Toph in the upcoming comics. Now as far as we know now, the only announced comic that is not yet out is The Search Part 3 and Toph is more or less confirmed to not be in it especially in a big way. So I think Gene basically confirmed a 3rd comic series that will focus on Toph. At the very least more comics.

    I feel there’s several things that strongly indicates, if not indirectly confirms, more comics. Possibly A LOT of more comics.

    I mean, outside of Gene talking about Toph playing a big role in future comics, Bryke totally talks about this as an ongoing project they, especially Mike, can work with, as a side thing that doesn’t consume too much time and work. I mean, it definitely sound like they WANT to make more, as well as ARE making more.

    I’m personally just waiting for the announcement of another comic, heh!

    i thought they would make more comics 🙂 i was thinking that they could make a whole other comic series focusing on Toph’s relationship with her parents, her metalbending academy, and who she would marry. im not sure if thats what they are talking about, but at least we will get more comics 😀 and the chibi characters are adorable :mrgreen:
