Earlier this year, Dark Horse Comics announced plans to continue to continue the story of “The Legend of Korra” in an all-new comic series. Helmed by co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino, the series’ story will be fully in canon, exploring Korra’s world following the conclusion of the hit Nickelodeon animated series.
Today, at New York Comic Con, Dark Horse announced that artist Brittney Williams has joined the “Korra” team. Williams, who was also recently named as the artist on Marvel’s “Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat,” spoke briefly with CBR News about her new gig, and shared an exclusive first look at her interpretation of DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko‘s fan-favorite character.
“I’m definitely going to stay true to the amazing style and tone that the “Legend of Korra” and the “Avatar” series have,” Williams told CBR News of her approach to the beloved characters as they transition from screen to page. “The great Bryan Konietzko will be there to provide direction and inspiration! At the same time, animation and comics are very different. As opposed to a whole crew with a variety of tastes and styles working on an animated series, a comic usually has one artist. In that respect, I think my drawing style will probably show itself a bit!”
