Hello all,

The artistic team behind the Avatar comics are retiring from the series with a farewell piece in the works. I'm not sure if this means the comics are ending or new artists will take over but whatever it is, we will probably find out shortly.  I'm sure it's hard to produce these things when the bar is set so high by the show's creative team, the fans, and the general public. Avatar is not perfect but it's a lot to live up to and it's possible the pressure got to everyone.

I just want to remind everyone that when Turf Wars releases this summer, please don't raise your expectations too high. The comics WILL NOT cover every loose end or go the direction you may be expecting, they WILL NOT be perfect. Whatever direction the writers choose to follow, we all need to remind ourselves that we are here to have fun and be a team. Let's make the big event of the summer a fun one. We will be kicking off the release of Turf Wars with our summer contest so when we do the tiebreaker between the top two choices, choose your fave.

What are your thoughts on this news? What are your speculations for the future of the franchise? Do you think it's time for the comics to end or do you want them to keep going? Let us know in comments.
Hello all,

I just got back from Beijing and we will do a tie breaker vote for the summer contest between the two most popular prompts so vote away once we post that. Also, Turf Wars is fast approaching so we will be keeping up with anything related to the new comic and posting it in our weekly newsletter. As for Avatar, we got a suggestion in our comments section to give Azula, Mai and Ty Lee their own group folder. We will have a vote on this decision at the end of July because it's honestly not a bad idea but we want to run it by you all before we do anything. Also, an important note to address, please submit your artwork to the correct folders. There was some confusion over the fan fiction folder so remember, only literature from the avatar franchise will be permitted in that folder. Art of your fanfics should always be submitted to OC's. If you have questions, concerns and or suggestions to help us improve your experience in our group, please note us and we will get back to you. I apologize for not being able to answer notes for a while but I've been super busy so I'll get to all of you when I can(I'm still having jet lag). Thank you for all the support, continue to be yourselves and let us continue to grow as a passionate community.

Hello all,

I'm going to be on a two week hiatus because I'll be in Beijing for a cultural study so I'm putting cofounder :iconluniara: in charge of membership and art submissions as well as blogs if she wants to write any. Go to her for group questions and support, she's great about getting back to people and super nice.

:icongyzmo-grim: and :icondawn2nightfall: will be in charge of answering questions in the comments section and journals as well as checking in on the group when they can do so.

I'll be back in two weeks. You guys are the best and I''l be keeping you all updated on Turf Wars and future Korra related events.

Hello all,

I'd like to thank everyone for their hard work on this contest. Our judges have decided upon the winners and I just want to say that I thought everyone did an amazing job with record breaking participation.

Honorable mention: :iconaliceandamy: with their creative and beautiful piece Fight Like a Girl. They will receive 50 points and a cake badge for their hard work.

Second place: :iconthehomicidalpigeon: with her beautiful rendition of Azula titled Molten Gold. This piece is stunning and visually captivating.

Grand Prize Winner: :iconinspector97: with his amazing crossover Nat geo piece titled Korra Nat Geo featuring Korra depicted as the cover image on the famous women empowerment cover.

Prizes will be distributed this week. Once again, this contest was a lot of fun to put together. For our July contest, remember to vote for the theme on our poll once we post the prompts.

Can you believe that Korra first aired five years ago on this day? While there really is no such thing as a perfect show, Korra comes pretty close. This was a show that pushed boundaries and made changes. It's only fitting that this year we are getting Turf Wars and the Korra adult coloring book. When I was 8 and first watching Avatar, I thought nothing could surpass it. Then along came Korra today in 2012. I just want to come out and say that the Korra community has a special place in my heart. So thank you Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante Dimartino for bringing your creativity to life for us.

The Women of Avatar contest is now over and judging is underway. The winners will be announced on Easter and prizes distributed later in the week. Thank you all for participating in this contest, we had a record number of submissions that we have not had in years. All of you submitted beautiful pieces and it was a lot of fun for me to jump in and participate along with you guys instead of judging this time.

I just want to remind members that if you have any concerns or questions, please note us and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Lack of communication from either members and or administrators can lead to misunderstandings, fights and other trouble so don't be afraid to note an administrator for questions of clarification, we are always happy to assist you.

Thank you everyone for being such a wonderful group of people. You guys truly are amazing, so keep on being creative and remember that we are all here to enjoy our show and have fun. Get ready for this year's summer contest this July which we will post our sample prompts for on Easter so go vote.

Happy Korra day from all of us on the staff. YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH IT!
