Oh great, now what are they going to call books 3 & 4? They already used up all the elements. Hmm...wood? Sky? Quintessence? The void? Hydrogen?

Tons of Book 2 concept art from Comic-Con, including new costumes, characters, and settings (oh, and some discussion of content too):

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

So, I guess we've got Korra with us until 2015? That's assuming one book per year. If that's the case, that's a good run.

Korra's outfits don't look all that different from what she already has. I liked seeing her in the more modern civilian clothing from Book One and I wouldn't mind it if she adopted that style at some point.

Asami's concept art looks good.

And Mako's outfit looks like a Starfleet uniform variant at first glance.

I only see one outfit shown for Korra. And yeah, it's a refinement of her look rather than a replacement. It's pretty much the same from the waist down, but the top is new, a richer blue with more of a Mandarin design -- which in this universe I suppose would be an Earth Kingdom influence, so it shows her adopting a more multicultural look as befits someone who's been in Republic City for a while. Also the discrete armbands are replaced by the longer glove thingies that cover all her arms except the shoulders and fingers.

I like the darker blue; I think it brings out her eyes.


I liked seeing her in the more modern civilian clothing from Book One and I wouldn't mind it if she adopted that style at some point.
I really liked the outfit she wore to Tarrlok's ball in "The Voice in the Night," but that's too formal for everyday wear. And I really did like the hat she wore in "The Revelation." I hope she kept that hat.


This page on the Avatar Wiki identifies some of the character images, and includes several more, including a new outfit for Bolin. The guy in purple who looks kind of like Tarrlok is identified as Unarock or Unolok, and is Korra's uncle. The "androgynous, creepy twins" are his son and daughter. The big shirtless guy with the beard is a young version of Korra's father Tonraq, who also appears in adult form in the subsequent image on the io9 page; I guess that means we'll be seeing flashbacks. The woman in the next two shots is Korra's mother Senna in two different outfits. The kindly-looking gray-haired woman with the crescent-moon necklace is Kya, Aang and Katara's daughter. The dandy with the Errol Flynn moustache and the fancy outfits is called Verick and is "a captain [of] industry residing in the Southern Water Tribe and a friend of Bolin's."

Oh, that page has videos too, but I don't have time to watch them yet.

My mistake. I thought those other girls were Korra with various outfits. The changes they made with Korra aren't even noticeable unless you know what to look for. I was hoping for something more radical.

Well, it's probably a matter of branding. They've established a look for the lead character and don't want to alter it too much, at least not this early on. I believe they made similarly subtle refinements to the A:TLA characters' wardrobe in Book/season 2, and didn't go for a more radical change until the story dictated it in Book 3.

But I'm sure we'll see her in various outfits throughout the season, as we did in this one. I've rarely seen an animated series that modified its characters' wardrobe so regularly.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

Hopefully we'll get a start date for Book 2 when Nickelodeon holds it's Upfront on February 26th.

Every year, Nickelodeon holds an event called an "Upfront", which is essentially the Comic-Con equivalent for Television Networks. During these Upfronts, Networks talk about their upcoming television schedule for the year. They discuss shows that will be returning to the network and talk about what fans should expect during the new seasons.
Read more…

And in other news, I picked up an oversized hardcover book called The Promise. It's a compilation of three graphic novels that were released individually. It tells the story of what happened after the events in Avatar: The Last Airbender. The book includes commentary from the author and artist in the margins as well as a sketchbook at the end with notes on the characters and the changes that were made to their attire. It's a good keepsake for Avatar fans.

The Promise @ Amazon.com

Korra being turned into a guy? I'd actually love to see something like that, but it's probably a little too "out there" for a western audience. Defying Gravity was going to have an arc where one of the female characters was supposed to turn into a man, but the show got cancelled. Sounded like a fascinating thing to see.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

As much as I am looking forward to more of this show, at this point I'd be happy with the first season being released on DVD or Netflix or something so I can watch it again.

IIRC, they are waiting for Book 2 to be completed, and release them together. (Though I can't point to where I got that idea)

Best Guess is Book 2 should start airing somewhere around April, and Amazon still doesn't have a release date for Book 1, so, that could lend support to the idea they will release Book 1 and 2 together. I basically record all the shows I watch from my On Demand menu to DVD, so, I fortunately have all the episodes already

Oh, heck... I figured there'd be a collection eventually, but I couldn't wait, so I bought all three volumes individually. I wonder if it's worth it to double-dip. I wish there were some kind of trade-in program...

There's another trilogy coming out soon, a direct followup to The Promise called The Search, which is about Zuko's search for his mother and features the return of Azula. Volume 1 comes out a month from now, March 20, and Volume 2 will be out July 10. No word on Vol. 3 yet.

I almost got the individual issues, but never got around to it. Then I saw this hardcover and snatched it up. It's a good looking high quality book. I'm sure a local comic book shop has one or two on the shelf, so you can go look and decide if you want it. The price on the back says $39.99.

Looks like that'll be good. I think I'll wait to see if they release a big hardcover for that one too though. Hopefully The Promise will sell well eough for them to put one out.

They released The Promise, Art of Avatar:TLA and a couple other things as digital comics a couple weeks ago for anyone else who prefers digital versions.
