Good news, everyone!
ASN will have the chance to interview Gene Yang pretty soon, and we'd like to open the floor to questions from everyone. The more people there are to submit questions, the better chance we'll have of getting interesting questions that haven't been asked before Cheesy

Questions can be about Gene's job, the process of writing the comic books, the plot of the comics, character development, shipping, etc. Everyone, please note that among the questions posted here there could be spoilers for "The Promise, Part 1", so proceed at your own risk if you don't want to be spoiled.


Bad news, everyone...
I'm afraid I have to give you all a very tight deadline, since ASN staff will need time to cull through the questions and pick 10-12 to send to Gene. So you'll only have a very short time to post your questions.


DEADLINE
Please submit your questions by posting them in this thread no later than Friday, 20 January 2012, at 9pm US Eastern time. You can use this handy timezone converter to figure out when this deadline falls in your local timezone.



Update 25/jan/2012: You can discuss the interview in this new thread.

Whoo-hoo, yay!

- The last page showed Zuko slipping back after so much character development, that angered a lot of fans. Any reason for that?

- Where's Iroh in the comic? A lot of the fans are worried he's dead.

- Zuko has been Fire Lord for a year now and there's still no engagement to Mai. Any problems in their relationship?

- What about the other ships? We see no Sokka and Suki interaction, are they no longer together? What about Smellerbee and Longshot?

- You mentioned in earlier interviews that you wanted to introduce "conflict" in Katara and Aang's relationship. What kind of conflict did you have in mind?

- How did Smellerbee and Longshot escape from Lake Laogai? Will we get to know about that in the comics?

- Were you a fanboy of the cartoon series? How did it feel when you could work with the creators?

- Could you tell us more about the comic writing process? How long does it take from the start to the publishing of the comic?

- Ultimately, we know Aang and Zuko will create Republic City together so would the character development of both characters be mind blowing awesome? =D

My questions:

- Why does Katara nod at Aang when Zuko asks him to make the promise? What's the meaning behind that nod?

- Are the Royal Guards really that incompetent that so many assassination attempts have happened to Zuko, or have they been doing their job badly on purpose? Could they be Ozai loyalists who want to see the new firelord taken down?

- Are Longshot and Smellerbee a couple?

*reads through questions*

No one's asked about Ursa yet? Tongue

-Do you know what happened to Ursa? Since this trilogy focuses on the founding of Republic City, are there any plans for future comics that cover Ursa and possibly Azula?

-Why were Aang and his friends so quick to assume that Zuko was turning into Ozai, and that he must die? Have they grown apart during the last year? In addition, why did Aang agree to kill his friend when his deep morals caused him to go out of his way to avoid killing a genocidal, evil dictator?

-Will Zuko ever tell Aang that Roku is his great-grandfather?

-Will Toph have any closure with her parents? Will we get a hint as to who her future husband will be?

-Will Kori and her family play a role in the future comics?

because it's quite likely that even the issue of Ursa cannot be resolved in the comics....at least that's what i interpreted from the latest interview from Darkhorse

Most of my questions have already been asked, but I'll still put them in my own words:

Like someone else said, fans are puzzled and concerned about Zuko going to his father for advice, there is a logical explaination for it, right?

More of a comment than a question, while there maybe be some conflict with the couples, I hope you are not planning on break up any couples(I like them as is), though I know you can't break up Aang and Katara for good.

I don't see the point of devoting one of our questions to Ursa. It's like beating a dead horse.

^ Yes. He will give the same incomplete answers that he has given a thousand times to the many fans that already asked about Ursa. As for the couples, I doubt he would be allowed to break in a 240 page comic something that was solidly built in a successful tv series that ended years ago.
My question: Is there going to be a big surprise in this comic? Something that nobody expected?

I second the Smellershot question (lol predictable).

But I suggest expanding it; asking if we'll see it in the comics or if it will potentially be hinted at. If we make the questions too blunt, we'll get blunt answers.

My version of said question: "Are Smellerbee and Longshot a couple, or do you intend to portray them that way in the comics? It's unclear in the series; can we (or will we) have any confirmation on that, or has it come up at all in your discussions with Mike and Bryan? Will we get to know how they escaped Lake Laogai? Will minor characters like Smellerbee and Longshot be explored much in this way? We did see that the story continues for the Freedom Fighters. How big of a role do they play?"

I dunno if you can make all that one question, but that's the best I can think of to get those sorts of questions answered.

Can we also ask how he feels about the leaks?

Is this the only comic series that will make the tie between Avatar: the last airbender and Avavar: the legend of Korra?

Or will there be something else coming out to make the connection as well?

^I second those, those are really great questions, especially the ones I bolded Tongue

Quote
- Why does Katara nod at Aang when Zuko asks him to make the promise? What's the meaning behind that nod?

^THIS.
Why does Katara so quick to want Zuko to die? He did sort of potentially sacrifice his life for hers. Gosh, Katara, someone's still bitter about Ba Sing Se are we?

Quote
- Is Sukka still up and running?

^I need to know! Cry

Quote
- Where is Lo and Li?

- What's about the five other assassins before Kori? Who were they? Whats happened with them?

^Those are good questions.

Quote
Does spirit Avatar Roku even know his great grandson is the new Firelord? (he kinda agreed on the promise Zuko and Aang made)
^THIS. This so hard. Also: Will Zuko and Aang ever find out that they are technically related?

Quote

-Do you know what happened to Ursa? Since this trilogy focuses on the founding of Republic City, are there any plans for future comics that cover Ursa and possibly Azula?

^THIS. But I think it should be mentioned that we saw the interview with Bryke by Darkhorse that lead to these speculations.

Quote
-Why were Aang and his friends so quick to assume that Zuko was turning into Ozai, and that he must die? Have they grown apart during the last year? In addition, why did Aang agree to kill his friend when his deep morals caused him to go out of his way to avoid killing a genocidal, evil dictator?

^Yes, Aang, what's with your sudden urge to agree to murders? Tongue
Quote
-Will Zuko ever tell Aang that Roku is his great-grandfather?
[/b]
^Again, YES
Quote

-Will Toph have any closure with her parents? Will we get a hint as to who her future husband will be?

Seconded. Big Time. We gotta ask about 'em because they rarely ever get asked about.

Also, Does Kori have a more important role?

Will there be another comic series beyond "The Promise"?

Why was Aang so quick to decide when making his "promise"? Why didn't he mull it over before answering Zuko?

Why did Katara encouage the answer of yes when Aang made his "promise"?

Will we see Kori in the following installments of "The Promise"? What about her family?

Do you know if Kori's multi-cultural family has any connection between Mako and Bolin's multi-cultural family?

Did you come up with the decision for Zuko to ask Ozai for advice at the end, or did you and Bryke collaborate on that?

And just for kicks and giggles:
Is Toph's baby daddy Dark Boy, or The Duke?

Azula has a large and loyal following and for three years fans have prayed that she would be able to get over her nervous breakdown and be out of the asylum as quickly as possible. The news that she would appear in “the promise” and that she got to keep her firebending sparked a bit of hope within the entire fan community.

In the interview with avatar wikia it was said,

“Gene Yang agrees with the rest of the Avatar community that Azula is a layered and fascinating character. He couldn’t tell us much about of the princess but she will definitely show up in The Promise, which discusses her being put away in the insane asylum.”

The phrase “discusses her being put away in the insane asylum.” indicates that she may still be there and we hope that is not the case. Can you please tell us what the conditions of the asylum are? Or whether or not she received visitors?

-

is Ursa a bender?

-

Why doesn’t Zuko ask the guru for help? He can help his sister recover and the guru can use the connection of between brother and sister to find there mother the same way he did with Apa and Aang.

-

What are the full capabilities of firebending? Can a fireBender create ice by sucking away the heat? Can they see heat the same way Toph can see vibrations? Can they use electro bending to bend metal?
I bet Azula could use that to escape. Cheesy

-

and will there be a comic that explains what happened in between the series and the promise?

-

what are the characters birthdays?

For the Toph's baby's daddy question we should word it specifically so that it's a yes or no question that specifically narrows down the possibilities. For instance,

"Is Toph's baby's daddy in The Promise?"

If yes, then we have a good list to go off of. If no, then we know it's none of those characters.
