Legend of Korra Cast Returns for Second Dark Horse Comic Book Reading

The cast of popular animated series The Legend of Korra is returning for another live reading from the Dark Horse comic book that continues the show. After reading the first part of Legend of Korra: Turf Wars, which picks up right after the series finale, back in April, Janet Varney and Seychelle Gabriel, who voiced Korra and Asami, are doing another, and this time they're joined by P.J. Byrne (Bolin), David Faustino (Makko), and Mindy Sterling (Lin Beifong). The voice actors will read the next few chapters of Turf Wars, and the whole thing will be streamed on Twitch.

A press release provides more information on the event:

Following the successful live table read from The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One in April by voice actors Janet Varney and Seychelle Gabriel, Dark Horse is excited to welcome the actors back for a second live reading from the comics!

On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, starting at 2 pm PT, Varney (Korra) and Gabriel (Asami) will be joined by P.J. Byrne (Bolin), David Faustino (Makko), and Mindy Sterling (Lin Beifong), fellow cast members of Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra animated series. This live reading from The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars: Part One will pick up where the previous reading left off, covering the next several chapters of the graphic novel, and will be broadcast on Dark Horse's Twitch channel: twitch.tv/darkhorsecomics.

Fans are invited to ask questions about The Legend of Korra in the live stream chat. Following the live reading, a moderated Q&A session will take place with the actors.

A free digital excerpt from The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One will be made available on Dark Horse Digital, beginning at 12 am Pacific on May 26, 2020, so that fans can follow along during the live reading.

During the stream, Dark Horse will give away a copy of The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Library Edition to one lucky viewer. Participants must enter during the live broadcast in the stream chat (instructions will be given during the broadcast). One entry per person/Twitch account. Full rules and disclaimer below.

So even if you don't have a copy of the book, if you're a fan of Legend of Korra and are interested in seeing the cast reunite, you'll definitely want to tune in to Dark Horse's Twitch channel. Not only can you read along with the free digital excerpt, but you could potentially win a nice hardbound copy of the book as well.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
