Hey avapeople the comic is back! In a limited, noncommittal fashion at least. I'm a little unsure about starting it up again, but I've got about 4 pages in the queue, and wanted to start putting them up. For now, it's going to be one every other week like it was previously, but after those are up it might be longer between pages as I've found that my hands can handle about only about 1 hour of art work per day. So... Yeah. I'm being noncommittal.

This was a difficult page, and I wondered if I was just being too silly having the troops trying to jump out of the panel to get away from the fire tornado. In lots of comics they use the 'out of the panel' thing for action shots and it works fine, but as soon as the characters acknowledge it's there it gets a little fourth wall breaking. Regardless, the more I thought about it the more I liked the idea, so I left it in anyway.

I also debated the pseudo-swearing. There's no language like this in the show, but I tried having them yell something like 'run' and it just didn't have the same effect. If someone throws a fire tornado at you, chances are swear words are going to result, probably without even thinking about it. This is about as much swearing as the comic will have, though.

On the previous page I mentioned the guy with the tongue hanging out. It's referencing the show's creator's tendency early in the show's development for crazy tongue flapping in the wind action, shown in three places:

1: The pilot episode that's included on the DVDs but not part of the actual series during the fight between Aang and Zuko.

2: The opening sequence briefly as Aang scoots by on his air scooter (found by hmsnike)

3: In the art book for ATLA on pages 28 and 29 (you can see Zuko on page 28 by 'looking inside' on the amazon page) where they show the first pencil tests for the series where Zuko is rolling with his tongue out, and Aang is... uh... I'm not sure how to describe it, but I'll just say it's the most over the top martial arts tongue action I've ever seen.

Sorry it took so long for this page, and I hope people didn't waste too much time searching for tongue references. ^^; In retrospect, I should have just posted the answers earlier.

I actually don't remember. I was poking at the page so long (for like a half year) I forgot specifically what was so difficult about it, but I remember the feeling of being frustrated while working on it.

It looks wonderful. The fire is very good too, so whatever frustration you had was worth it.

I was thinking about this comic just a few days ago! I reread it as soon as I saw this page in my inbox. :) I nearly forgot how awesome it is.

Yay! Glad to see the comic updating again, and with such an awesome page! Glad your hands are feeling a little better. If it takes longer to make the pages, so be it. The comic is wonderful, but letting your hands heal is more important.

And the troops trying to escape via the panel barrier is hilarious!

Nice to see these again! I don't mind the 'out of the panel' thing, as this comic has always been your way to mess around with things, so you might as well experiment! As for the show and swearing, I think 'monkeyfeathers' is about as close as they got. Otherwise I think characters just used a lot of screaming and emoting.
