For The Avatar Fandom

And by Avatar, I mean the ORIGINAL Avatar. The Last Airbender Avatar.

I was on deviantart the other night when I remembered a fan comic of Avatar that had cracked me up. So I went searching for it and finally found it after a half hour of digging around. It's actually a series of comics set during different moments of the original series. If you're a fan of the old TV show, then you'll love this.

Zuko and King Bumi's Medicine
Aang's "Concern"
Side Effects May Include...
What A Relief
The Perfect Solution
Side Effects May Also Include...
Because of a Cat



  1. Hahaha! That is sooo bad... but sooo funny! I have one as well...


    There is also a few other shipping jokes I can find if you want me to post them...


  2. Oh my goodness, that's hilarious! And so true. I think pairing wars are bigger than the wars in the actual series, and that goes for every TV show, cartoon, and anime.

    Yeah, post away, I'd love to see them!

  3. Yep! Avatar though is HORRID though, as you shall see. I'm not sure if you know of tvtropes (warning, addicting site that is an encylopida of 'tropes' or what cliches were when not cliche), but on several 'shipping' pages, avatar gets the title picture. And here they are...

    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LauncherOfAThousandShips (this one is so wrong...)

    You can read the description if you want, but its the pictures that are funny. And that's all I have...

  4. Bahaha, those are hilarious! And so true. Fans these days...They all come up with crazy shipping ideas. With Avatar, the Zutara pairing has wayyy too many fans. I will never understand it.

    The Launcher of a Thousand Ships completely astounds me with its absurdity. Bleeegh, who thought of that anyway?? Oh well.

  5. I don't know... that one was creepy. But its true ain't it, fans love Katara! And Zuko, and Aang, and May, and Yumi... maybe that is the issue with that show, too many likeable characters!

    As for Zutara... I have no idea. Maybe since they are so polar opposites? Since Zuko isn't as sappy as Aang? I don't know, and frankly, don't care. Shippers are oddities to watch from a distance, as one might a wild animal.

  6. Yup. Though I find a lot of Katara haters around the internet...

    They do it just because. Katara's the female lead and, my assumption is, "Zuko is hotttt!!" So everyone says, why not? My theory.

    And hey! I'm a shipper with some shipper tendencies! Just kidding. I do ship couples, but not as obsessively or crazily.
