For those of you on the East Coast, your wish has come true! 'The Legend of Korra' will be doing a panel at the 2013 New York Comic Con (which will be held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City from Friday, October 10 - Sunday, October 13). In attendance will be co-creator of the Avatar universe, Bryan Konietzko, and co-executive producer, Joaquim Dos Santos. As well as some "special" guests from the voice cast of 'The Legend of Korra.' The panel takes place on Empire Stage 1-E on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.
Bryan Konietzko wrote a blog on his Tumblr about the upcoming event:
The Legend of Korra is coming to New York Comic Con!
It’s just like San Diego Comic-Con, minus the hyphen! It has been a long time since we made it out to a convention other than SDCC, and we know that fact bums out a lot of non-SoCal/SoCal-accessible fans. We wish that we could venture out more, but even just prepping for and visiting San Diego once a year takes a lot of time out of our jam-packed production schedule, so traveling even further for conventions is usually not an option. But we’re going to make it happen anyway for NYCC, and we’re really looking forward to it!
Unfortunately Mike can’t make it, but Joaquim and I will be joined by some special guests at the panel Saturday, October 12th at 11:00 am. Lots of cool stuff in the works for the presentation. We’re putting together a signing on that Saturday too, so I’ll update with more info when I have it.
See you East Coasters soon!
The panel is sure to be a real treat for fans! Also, 'The Legend of Korra' Examiner will be there. I'm really excited to be going (because I, like all of you, am just a really big fan), and I hope to see some of you there!
