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.
To wrap up its animation panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Marvel premiered early footage of a “Guardians of the Galaxy” cartoon. In the clip, Rocket Raccoon, appearing first in silhouette, fights off multiple flying robotic enemies before Starlord shows up, telling him, “If you’re going to hang out with me, you’re going to need bigger blasters.”
The short clip followed comments by SVP-Production and Creative Director Eric Radomski that the Guardians would appear in episodes of all current Marvel animated series, including “Ultimate Spider-Man,” “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.,” and “Avengers Assemble.”
“With the upcoming movie, we’re trying to get them into the minds of everybody who might not know about the Guardians.” Cort Lane, Vice President of Development & Production added that a Season 3 episode of “Spider-Man” will actually air early to get the Guardians out there.

Incomplete details were leaked back in August, but now Disney Publishing has confirmed via the disneyandmore blog plans to release a 176-page graphic novel inspired by the Disneyland attraction Space Mountain. Space Mountain will be released on May 6, 2014 as the first of a planned trilogy.
Space Mountain will be written by Bryan Q. Miller (Batgirl, Teen Titans, Smallville: Season 11, Spiderman) and illustrated by Kelly Jones (Batman, The Sandman: Dream Country & Season of Mists) and Hi-Fi Design. The book will be available from Disney Press in both hardcover and paperback editions.
The story is set in the year 2125, described as "story of two kids, a miniature flying saucer and dangerous mission twenty-four hours into a twisted tomorrow." The young cadets are chosen to join a team of space explorers on a special field trip to journey 24 hours into the future. Of course, something goes wrong, and the kids must save the day and get back to Space Mountain before the universe is destroyed.
Disney plans to follow up Space Mountain with two other books: Return to Space Mountain in 2015, and Battle for Space Mountain in 2016. The Space Mountain indoor coaster opened in 1975 in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World, and is currently the oldest operating roller coaster in Florida.
