Comic Preview by rufftoon Comic Preview by rufftoon
Since this image has been previewed at San Diego this weekend, and can be seen at various places on the internet in various quality of more or less in focus, I decided to show an early version- work in progress (a tent was added behind the Earth King in a later corrected version).
This will be a short story that will appear in the All Avatar Nick magazine special coming out in September. It will contain stories that will bridge elements of season 2 and 3.
There will be more stories and illustrations in the magazine, one drawn by :iconmerofi:, another by Reagan Lodge [link]
A chibi one by director Ethan Spalding, the cover by the very talented :iconnotthepornstar: and much much more!

COLORS BY: Wes Dzioba

So that's a portion of what I've been up to recently, that has kept me from updating as much as I'd like on DA.
And I've got more on my plate. Oy!!

I believe the words to this are of course:
"Ittybitty baby, itty bitty boat"
"I don't believe it"
"Habeeb it!"
"twinky house!"

Once in a while, I get a little comic gig. It's nice :)
I'm not quite certain about posting the comic online just yet. I may have to wait a while, and ask permission first.

A few places might still have copies. Check some stores or Ebay. Try and contact Nick magazine too- they may have it as back issue sale.

The fun part is trying to guess the dialogue.

I keep getting the last panel to: "BEARS ARE GODLESS KILLING MACHINES!!" though. :p

Poor Bosco has always been a bit clueless. The ways of men (especially Sokka's) are a mystery to him.

Thanks for sharing this with us. I still can't really put this into context, and I have no clue why Sokka would tear that book apart and then yell at Bosco. I'm sure it'll make sense as part of the whole comic (plus text).

I'm definitely going to try and get my hands on the magazines, and I have my ways to do so. Looking forward to see it all :]

There's actually a few panels missing at the top, plus this is an excerpt from page 2-
Hope you'll manage to get copies of the magazine. If not, contact me. I may manage to get an extra one.

I've been bugging our newsstand for ages now, asking when it would go up, but now I know 18 September. :D

Lady at the News Stand: So, what magazine are you looking for?
Me: Nick magazine. The September/October issue.
Lady: I have no idea when that goes up. How old are you?
Me: ... 20.
Lady: ... OK. Well, it'll probably be next Tuesday.
(cut to next Tuesday)
Me: Where is it?
Lady: You again? *backs away slowly*

So anyway, yay. :D And the lady who thinks I'm nuts won't have to see me until then. All is well with my world. Or will be by 21 September at 8:30 pm in this timezone. :D

I'm a bit young to have a kid. Even if I had one, said kid would not be able to read yet. Usually they seem to enjoy pretending that I'm buying for a younger sibling. When I bought Avatar popsicles, the cashier asked if I was buying it for kids I babysat, which was new. I sort of managed to croak out a, "No, my throat is really sore." Which it was, I wasn't making that up. =P

I've had newsstands adventure somewhat similar...not quite, but close.
Usually the people atthe cash ask "is this for your kid?"
Me: "Yeah, sure" (For my inner kid)
