Comics Are Great! 21 – Puppetbending

It’s a jam-packed episode where we tackle the topics of fandom in the 21st century, the role of “shipping” in storytelling, what it’s like to win an Eisner award, and perhaps most importantly, the new Avatar: The Legend of Korra series!

First we’re joined by Raina Telgemeier, who stops by for a little to share her experience at the Eisner Awards and to show off her freshly-won trophy for her graphic novel Smile!

Then Dave Roman and Kevin Coppa hang out with me to talk about Kevin’s Avatar: The Last Puppetbender series of videos. We talk about the importance of fan-created works and how they can contribute to the overall success of a creative project, how one gets into being a puppeteer and creating their own fan films, and then move on to a discussion on the new Avatar series, The Legend of Korra.

We’re joined at the end by Sharon Iverson of the Ann Arbor District Library, who shares a few book recommendations for this week’s episode as well as some upcoming comics events in Ann Arbor.
