Irene Koh Speaks New Legend of Korra: Turf War and Comic Series preview

Irene Koh Speaks Legend of Korra New Comic Series.

Legend of Korra: Turf Wars artist ,Irene Koh, says she's the perfect person for Legend Of Korra comic series.

Speaking at Emerald City Comicon, Koh said "I'm Asian, bisexual and a martial artist"... Koh admitted that it was a lot of pressure, but she revealed that she's closely working with the creators to make sure everything flows.

Dark Horse Comics will release the first volume in a brand-new The Legend of Korra graphic novel series, The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars in June 2017.

Last month DiMartino told EW that the comic series will focus on Asami and Korra's relationship.

"Korra has to figure out how to find a new balance in the city with all this stuff that's gone on." He continued, "It's gonna take place right after the finale, so it's focusing on Korra and Asami's relationship as a new threat emerges. It's kind of like the aftermath dealing with the new portal in the city, and all the evacuees coming back to find their homes wiped out because of the portal."

The three-part graphic novel series is written by Nickelodeon TV series co-creator and executive producer Michael Dante DiMartino, drawn by Irene Koh (Batgirl, 1602, TMNT), with covers by Heather Campbell (Free Comic Book Day 2016: The Legend of Korra), and consultation by TV series co-creator and executive producer Bryan Konietzko.

The comics take place almost immediately after the series with Korra and Asami leaving the spirit world and returning to Republic City only to find political hijinks and human vs. spirit conflict, as a pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. In addition, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal brawl at the city's borders where hundreds of evacuees have relocated. In order to get through it all, Korra and Asami vow to look out for each other—but first, they've got to get better at being a team.

Koh said she was given a "Bonding Bible" which showed all the different martial art styles for present and future characters and that while having fun drawing the different styles as references.

The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Parts 1–3 will serve as the official continuation of The Legend of Korra television series.
