Five years ago, The Legend of Korra first aired on Nickelodeon in the US, as a sequel series to the much-beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender. While not the critical smash that A:TLA was, for me Korra stands up well as an amazing piece of storytelling, with gorgeous visuals to boot. In case you’re not familiar… Continue reading Legend of Korra, Five Years Later
It was first announced that Korra’s adventures would continue in comics (much like Aang’s) last New York Comic-Con, but it’s taken until this one to get an update. The new comic, titled “Turf Wars”, begins June of 2017. The details: This three-part graphic novel series is written by Nickelodeon TV series co-creator and executive producer… Continue reading The First Legend of Korra Comic, “Turf Wars”, Starts June 2017!
The above picture shows a happy time, with Korra and Asami bonding like sisters (or depending on how you ‘ship’, something more). It’s pretty much the last happy moment Korra will have in her life. I might be exaggerating but not by much. Book 4 starts tomorrow so if you aren’t caught up, here are… Continue reading The Legend of Korra Book 3 and 4
Okay, this was a good episode to show off the supporting cast, considering Korra is missing and presumed dead, at least by Unalaq, Eska and Desna. We see a ship of Varrick’s (filled with Asami’s mecha-tanks) get attacked, but this time it’s not by spirits but apparent Northern Water Tribe goons. Mako, of course, thinks… Continue reading The Legend of Korra – The Sting
I thought Part 2 put a solid finish on the various Civil Wars storylines. Korra learns just how deep Unalaq’s lies and manipulation go, and Tenzin bonds with Ikki, and in doing so has a moment with Kya and Bumi to boot. The Bolin/Eska situation is still less funny and more painful, but at least… Continue reading The Legend of Korra – Civil Wars
Spoilers, if you must know. I meant to write these weekly, but hey, there’s a ton to process here! The first two episodes set the stage six months after the defeat of Amon. Korra can airbend, Mako’s a cop on the fast track to detective, and Bolin’s remade Fire Ferrets are terrible. Asami is barely… Continue reading The Legend of Korra Book 2 – A Rough Start
*whew* That’s quite a title. I got a chance to check out the book thanks to a review copy from Netgalley, and it’s great. I love The Legend of Korra almost as much as its predecessor, Avatar: The Last Airbender, but I’m also fascinated by the creators, Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino. Whether it’s fun… Continue reading Book Review – The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series, Book One: Air
Okay, we FINALLY have something to sink our teeth into here, but we have to wait until September to for Book 2 to start. So let’s obsess over the trailer! Korra and Tenzin meditating. Spirit world connection! Unalaq bending. Such beautiful animation. Looks like…A FUNERAL?? Who are you killing, Bryke? The next part looks like… Continue reading Legend of Korra Book 2 Trailer!
Just a heads-up for those of you who may be interested in these shows: For a limited time, you can watch every episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender at the NickToons site. There are 3 books, that takes you to Book 1. Very much worth your time, even if you are *cough* somewhat grown up.… Continue reading Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra Tips
We have watched the Korra finale a few times now in these parts, and I love it. There are many who don’t, and they would be wrong. That is not to say that there weren’t problems or things that could’ve been tweaked, some silly choices, but you know what? I didn’t even think of them… Continue reading The Legend of Korra Season Finale – You Gotta Deal With It!
Well, it seems like the show has barely started, and we are already at the season finale. This Saturday at 11am, we see the endgame with Amon and Korra. From the previews, it’s clear that there is a HUGE battle involving battleships, planes (launched from General Iroh’s ships?), airships, and who knows what else. We… Continue reading The Legend of Korra Season Finale Preview
Note: bigtime spoilers here, if you aren’t fully caught up. I watched episode 8 today (both times it was on!) and am completely floored at what’s happening here. The show is moving through plot at a breakneck pace, and just when you think they might take a breather, BOOM, Tarrlok and Korra fight. And for… Continue reading The Legend of Korra: WHOA
