Dark Horse Comics to Publish ‘Legend of Korra’ Comics

As we learned several days ago during The Legend of Korra Comic-Con 2015 panel, The Legend of Korra will continue as comics written by Mike DiMartino and published by Dark House Comics. Bryan Konietzko will act as a consultant for the story and the art.

Three volumes of comics have been confirmed and they will reportedly focus on the aftermath of the Book 4 finale and the relationship between Korra and Asami.

At the moment, Mike and Bryan are still on the hunt to find artists to work on the comics.

With a new Avatar: The Last Airbender comic scheduled to release later this year (Smoke and Shadows), a realistic release date for the first Legend of Korra comic would be sometime next year.

Today’s the day: Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will be in attendance for today’s Legend of Korra/Dark Horse San Diego Comic Con 2015 panel.

Ever since we learned that the co-creators would be in attendance, there’s been nothing but hype. The panel promises to surprise and tease the future of the Avatar series. That definitely makes Korra comics a possibility, so let’s wait and see.

The panel begins at 10:00 am PST – or 2:00 pm EST – and I will be live blogging it as usual.

Let’s hope for something big!

DiMartino: ‘Korra’ Comic-Con Panel will Discuss Past and Future of Comics

Mike Comic COn

Mike DiMartino took to Tumblr to confirm that he and Bryan Konietzko will be in attendance of this year’s Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra Comic-Con panel.

The panel will be hosted by Nickelodeon and Dark Horse Comics, and promises to tease the future of the Avatar universe. Naturally, this brought about an abundance of speculation, some going as far as to say that the co-creators would announce a new Avatar series.

I imagine Mike didn’t want to see the hype train go off rails, so he posted clarification on Tumblr stating that he and Bryan would discuss the past and future of the Avatar comics. Along with that, the co-creators are going to share images from the Book 4: Balance art book.

While this does diminish the chances of a new series being announced, it doesn’t diminish the chances of Korra comics being announced. Realistically, if Korra comics are announced, this Comic-Con would be considered a success. Korra’s journey as the Avatar would live on, and there’s still clearly an abundance of stories that could be told from that world.
