Comic-Con News:  At the San Diego Comic-Con Dark Horse Comics announced an agreement with Nickelodeon to create a series of comic books based on The Legend of Korra TV series.  When The Legend of Korra debuted on Nickelodeon four seasons ago, it set a new cable record for a kid’s show.  The critically acclaimed Legend of Korra series, which was a follow-up to the hugely successful Avatar, The Last Airbender focused on a new Avatar, Korra, who mastered the four elements and her struggle to protect and bring balance to the world.

The fact that the new Legend of Korra comics, which ICv2 has learned will be digest-sized, will feature Korra and Asami, takes place after the conclusion of the events in Season 4 and is being written by the co-creator of the show means that these comics (like Dark Horse’s Avatar volumes) will become part of the Legend of Korra canon.

Dark Horse’s Avatar graphic novel collections did exceptionally well in both the comic book and bookstore marketplaces, and its Legend of Korra books are well-positioned to continue that success.  Details about the creative teams and the launch date of Dark Horse’s Legend of Korra comics should be forthcoming in the next few weeks.


Dynamite announced a licensing partnership with Grumpy Cat Limited to bring the internet celebri-cat Grumpy Cat to print and digital comics.


The first comic adaptation, a three-issue miniseries starring Grumpy Cat and her brother Pokey, will release this fall. The miniseries will be collected into a hardcover graphic novel in time for holiday release.  Dynamite also plans to launch a new website this summer featuring weekly Grmpy Cat comic strips.

Grumpy Cat, aka Tartar Sauce, started out her meme life on Reddit, where her adorable perma-scowl (which her owner says is the result of feline dwarfism) quickly spread to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, capitalized on the kitty’s success with two New York Times bestselling books, a Lifetime TV Christmas special, numerous TV and product spots, and merchandise that ranges from an iced coffee drink to a line of Ultra PRO game accessories. Her Facebook fans currently number over 7.6 million, and her YouTube video views have topped 31 million.
