Legend author Marie Lu was at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore at The Grove in Los Angeles to participate in what was called the Power of Fandom panel. In the video, she answers from fan questions, sitting alongside Shadow and Bone author Leigh Bardugo, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of KorraMike DiMartino, and co-produce of The Walking DeadSeth Hoffman.
As we stated in a previous post, Marie Lu will be at the Barnes & Noble book store at the Grove in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 26th, with Shadow and Bone author Leigh Bardugo, Avatar and Legend of Korra creator Mike DiMartino, and The Walking Dead Co-EP Seth Hoffman. If you’re attending (which I hope to try myself) and you like drawing, then you might be interested in this tweet by Marie:
A:TLA/Korra. The Walking Dead. Shadow & Bone. and Legend. Make crossover fanart of all 4, we’ll sign it at our panel! http://t.co/qTVkw7854K
How cool is that?! Of course, this type of crossover may need some out-there creativity, as you it’s not generally known that characters from Avatar or Legend of Korra frequent the lots of The Walking Dead. However, artists tend to have a very creative mind anyway.
So, get at it, and post it on Tumblr! They might get it signed for you and even shower you with other gifts as well. Who knows when it comes to these authors.
Last night, TheFandom.net had their first ever live hangout session in which we got to talk about the movies that are coming up for some of our fandoms that we have on the site. However, one of the most exciting news to come from the hangout happened near the beginning of the hangout, where we revealed that we will be adding more fandoms to the site in the very near future!
A little after the 4:20 mark, I get to announce which fandoms will be getting their own fandom site, which are listed right here:
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (book series by Laini Taylor)
Graceling (book series by Kristin Cashore)
Legend(book series by Marie Lu)
Shadow & Bone (book series by Leigh Bardugo)
Sherlock(BBC TV Series)
Supernatural(The CW TV Series)
Under the Never Sky (book series by Veronica Rossi)
As to the reason we chose each series, it’s really just a matter of the quality of the books and the TV shows. They either have a certain unique quality about them, either through the story that’s told, through the characters that we learn of, or both, and we’re very excited to give these fandoms an opportunity to grow on the site and expand the fandom to many other people who are looking for new books or shows to gush over. We hope you agree with us when you do get a chance to learn about each one of them.
You can watch the rest of the hangout episode below:
I’ll send you notice when the new fandoms have been integrated into their new homes!
