Avatar: The Last Airbender and Korra creator previews new graphic novel Threadworlds [Entertainment Weekly]
Imagine five planets that share a single orbit. Imagine an inquisitive young scientist, curious about the world, setting out on adventures across the universe. That’s the grounding for Threadworlds, a new graphic novel by Bryan Konietzko, best known for creating the internationally acclaimed animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Published by First Second Books, Threadworlds is Konietzko’s graphic novel debut and takes you on a science fiction journey that promises to inspire you, captivate you and thrill you all at once.

Is there historical consensus as to who actually Shot the Sheriff?

How did the Spacing Guild develop such a stranglehold on the Padishah Emperor? What led to the split between the People's Front of Judea and the Judean People's Front in the first century? If Franz Ferdinand's assassination was the inciting cause for WWI, how are they still able to go on tour? How could Scrooge McDuck have maintained his extraordinary wealth from the 1940s onward without destabilzing the entire world's economy? Did the 'genocide' against the Air Nomads REALLY happen? And, finally, how did the Eagles manage to rescue Frodo and Sam at Mt. Doom and still have time to record "Hotel California"? [more inside]

But I believe Aang can save the world.

Ten years ago today, two teenagers found a boy and his sky bison in an iceberg, and Avatar: The Last Airbender began. Set in a world where people can control one of the four elements - fire, air, water, and earth, the Avatar is the one being who can control them all, reincarnated life after life to bring balance and harmony to the world.

The creation of Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, The Last Airbender drew upon fully fleshed-out characters, stirring music, and Japanese-inspired animation to convey the serialized story of Avatar Aang, siblings Katara and Sokka of the Southern Water Tribe, Toph Beifong, and the rest of Team Avatar as they faced off against the Fire Nation and the evil Fire Lord Ozai. And, in the process, changed our world as much as theirs. [more inside]
