That’s right, Nickelodeon is hosting a Legend of Korra panel at New York Comic Con on Thursday, October 9 at 5:15pm. Can’t wait to see you there!
Be on the look-out for more news about NYCC (and Book 4) as we get closer to October :)
NYCC Korra Panel, Thursday 10/9 at 5:15!
BEHOLD: NEW HAIR! Korra’s design gets backs to its roots in Book 4, with a bob cut like the one Joaquim did in his original concept of her. It wouldn’t be the Avatarverse without some hairstyle changes, now would it?
(Joaquim, Studio Mir, and I drew the Korra above, Lauren Zurcher painted the background, and I did the color.)
Wow! That was fast. Nice!

I like the fact that you can see the shockwave go through the clouds.
Three years ago, researchers fired whisky to the International Space Station as part of an experiment to see how the conditions in space change flavours. Next month, the whisky will return to Earth.
Scotland’s contribution to space research. Good job.

Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.
Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.
Let me tell you guys a story.
In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business.
35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.
At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms.
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG.
In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings.
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.
Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.
How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.
How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.
in 1987 a lone gunman killed 16 people, wounded 15 and then committed suicide. within six months the uk government passed an amendment to the firearms act effectively outlawing all high calibre, high frequency, high capacity rifles and shotguns.
in 1996 another lone gunman killed 16 children and their teacher, and then committed suicide. again within six months the uk government outlawed all handguns. special dispensation had to be issued in order to hold shooting competition as part of the 2012 olympic games, and british hopefuls had to train overseas.
you can legally own certain types of shotgun, .22 calibre rifles over a certain barrel length, and antiques. that’s it.
in the nigh-on twenty years since the uk has had one mass shooting. one. and we’re down to about 30 gun-related deaths annually.
there is not one example of gun control laws reducing mass shootings and gun-related homicide. there are dozens. it literally works every time. the usa is the anomaly not because it didn’t work but because it hasn’t tried.
Has anyone read Lev Grossman’s The Magicians and if so is it worth powering through the obnoxious “mundane life” bullshit at the beginning? Because currently I’m five pages in and the protagonist is so noxiously self pitying that I want to fling the book out the window.
Wah, the girl you like doesn’t like you and everything is a tragedy. Excuse me while I yawn so widely the top of my head falls off.
ETA: I’ve been told that the answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT DO NOT READ THIS TERRIBLE BOOK.
I agree, do not read. It just gets worse. I was told it was like an adult Harry Potter. Authors I respect recommended it. I was told it was this guy in our book club’s absolute favorite book and that he’d never identified with a protagonist so much before. I thought it might be at least okay. It’s not. It’s whiney and boring the entire time. I tried to read it like Fantasy and it sucked. Then I tried to read it as literature, and it still sucked. There is no fantasy. There is not literary value. There is not PLOT. Only stupid kids who are supposed to be too smart for their own good. But instead of being smart, they literally sit around and do nothing the whole book. And whine about sex and girls. And you feel like they should be gossiping about people, but really they don’t care enough to gossip. The interesting characters are never developed. They disappear for half the book, then come back and continue to do nothing. When characters die, you can’t even care, because it feels like nothing changes. Even the characters barely care. You don’t know which characters to care about, because they’re all equally lame. The magical world created should be so fascinating. It’s like Harry Potter and Narnia had a baby. But it just doesn’t work. Imagine Harry Potter, but only the parts in the 4th-6th books where Harry is all moody over Cho or Ginny. And add a full 4 years of school rushed into like 200 pages. Now add Harry not caring at all about magic or school, and not having any sort of enemy. Also, Hermione and Ron are basically just more whiney Harry’s. Instead of playing Quidditch, they all just say they don’t want to play, but then do it, and do badly at it. And imagine him having a bizarre love of Narnia, which is mentioned like twice and is yet is a huge plot point in the last like, 20 pages.
I was so hugely disappointed by every aspect of this book. If anyone read it and liked it, I’d be curious to know why, but just know that I think you have terrible taste in fantasy….
I found the giraffes making love on the TFIOS movie
I’ve been waiting for SO LONG for this post! This is the most definite Nerdfighter reference in the movie…so pleased!
