Joshua Middleton joins The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra

From Joshua Middleton's poster for "The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra"

Following a stint last year as an art director for Warner Bros. Animation’s upcoming Green Lantern: The Animated Series, artist Joshua Middleton announced this week that he’s joined the staff of Nickelodeon’s The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra. And he does so in fine fashion, with the beautiful illustration he created for the limited-edition poster that debuted at Comic-Con International.

The eagerly awaited sequel to the hit Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra picks up 70 years after the original series, following the current incarnation of the Avatar, a hotheaded teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe. The 26-episode series is set to debut in mid-2012. Check out Middleton’s full poster after the break.

I’m not an animation guy, but I’m excited for Korra fans that will get to experience Middleton’s work. He’s a huge talent.

Ohhhhh myyyy goodness. I’m not sure that my brain can fully comprehend this. It’s too much awesome!


I just hope this show will be better or at least the same level as the last airbender. I am looking at some comedy scenes as well as action!
