Things We Saw Today

  • Speaking of Avatar, The Promise, a graphic novel that bridges the gap between Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, came out yesterday! It’s written by a fan who came to the attention of the show’s creators through his protest against the white-washing of the movie adaptation, so you should pick it up if only as an example both of fandom getting you places in life and of the success of fan activists. Check out a preview at Comic Book Resources.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
