Apparently you can pre-order the Zuko-tastic prequel graphic novel from Amazon already?! Some of the information is wrong -- the book is probably going to be 100 pages, not 176 -- so I have no idea if that May release date is accurate. But still! *laughs* Although man, who's this "Nickelodeon" guy who's supposedly the author? ;)

I spent this weekend trying to crawl my way out from under a completely insane flu (although not THAT flu) and have only just gotten to the point where I can stay awake long enough to get much of anything done. So...TIME TO GO WORK ON THE AIRBENDER BOOKS? (And various other things that I owe various other people, like the extremely patient [livejournal.com profile] goraina.) The deadline for the scripts for BOTH of the books is early October, but since [livejournal.com profile] hoshizora will be arriving at the end of September I have quite a bit of motivation to get this stuff mostly finished even earlier than that. This wasn't a great month for my body to horribly betray me, but you know...I'll manage. I just ordered a giant pile of groceries from Fresh Direct, so at least I'll be able to hunker down in the apartment and slave away without having to go outside for sustenance. (I ordered myself an entire steamed lobster and a pint of cocktail sauce, I am so excited you don't even know.)

Finally: Anyone coming into town for New York Anime Fest? [livejournal.com profile] jetbaby, you're gonna be there, right?

If I get this book to catalog at work I am going to freeeeeeeeak out. Already people kinda know not to give me the ATLA tie-in books because I'll do less cataloging and just plain read them. (The lost scrolls are surprisingly informative on worldbuilding!)

I hope you feel better soon! Everyone seems to be getting sick lately.

Yeah, you know, I keep meaning to look at everything....I know some of it is just nonsense, but there's good stuff mixed in!

And yes, man, it's the one thing that sucks about those seasonal transitions. I only get colds like this maybe twice a year, but that's ENOUGH D:

Whether you like it, or not. Looking forward to seeing you there - barring deadline crushes and death by lobster.

We should absolutely do a thing while you're in town! <3 <3

Are you commuting back and forth or staying in the city?

I love doing things! Esp. in good company. ^_^

Per usual, I'm commuting back and forth - I'll be in on Sat., but I'm not tied down to any curfew. Hope you're on the mend and being productive!

One of the things that REALLY SUCKS about my weirdo anxiety is that for some reason, I sometimes get in this place where avoid doing the Fresh Direct order for like a month. Which is a TERRIBLE IDEA, because I love Fresh Direct! The whole point of it is to be easy and non-stressful! But instead I end up seeing what I can make with two shriveled potatoes, an onion and a suspect-looking slice of ham.

AH WELL. \o/

....YOU ARE DOING WHAT.

Okay. Sorry. I just stumbled across your journal and I saw this post and you don't know me (yet :D) and. WHAT. You're writing the graphic novel for Nickelodean? Really?

SORRY for being late on everything :D

Haha, hey!

Yeah, my friend/sometimes-editor [livejournal.com profile] yaytime and I are cowriting a prequel! It's about Zuko during the time of his banishment, and while it's necessarily based on the world and aesthetic of the film, we're trying to keep it as accessible as possible to fans of the show as well for obvious reasons <3

Dave was one of the comics editors at Nickelodeon Magazine, so I've worked on Avatar comics with him before. But this is much more extensive than anything else we've done -- the longest comic I wrote for the magazine was 14 pages, and this will be more like 100.

Hahahhaa and you're not late! We're not even done writing the thing yet! ^_^;

Oh my- I am going to pre-order my copy now. Like, at this instant. I am so in love with this idea that I may never think about anything else until my preordered copy arrives in the mail.

...Okay, exagerrating. BUT OMFG YOU ARE LIKE A CELEBRITY TO ME NOW *_____* cannot think of a coherent thought, so, have some keysmash LKFADJLDKFJ.

so you drew for the Avatar comic? Which one? Or was it just your script? I'd like to see that :Q________

This is so amazing. It'll be amazing and gorgeous, I can tell :D
