He couldn't resist- one last time to annoy her.
Maybe it is his way of saying "goodbye, don't forget me".

Page original size 5,5" X 8".
Rough pencils. Grey shading, lettering and word balloons done in Photoshop
These pages done for fun, and also as a good exercise in storytelling and planning on such a long scale, which I had not really done before.
I am not planning on inking, cleaning more or coloring them. I simply do not have the time.

The Avatar universe belongs to Mike, Bryan, Nickelodeon-Viacom-MTV.
All the characters belong to them, but a few of the extras are my own creation.

Now I'm seeing Zhao in a retirement home for grumpy bastards, being taken care of by a nurse.
That's the only way he would enjoy a simple life with anyone.

HAHAHA he'll never enjoy anything... or maybe he'll secretly love it, being cared for day and night, all those bath times with nurses washing under his manboobs and giant wrinkle flabs, aaaah HAHA!

All his loves are secrets.
Of course he'd enjoy the baths- gotta love a good scrub (oh, the mental image of that, ha haha!!)

"How about we do that next time I'm around?"
A-hahaha! Priceless line right there, but so, so, so very wrong. So many bad hints and connotations that could be taken in.

I suppose as many times as he's had his ass handed to him now (both in the cartoon and in your wonderful comics) that he would have to develop some strange affinity for it, otherwise he would have stopped doing this sort of stuff by now! xD

So much in these finally pages were special, but I guess this is the first time that Zhao smiles and it wasn't just a grin!

Yup, that would be a genuine smile on him for once.
Gah it was hard to draw.

I think that's the first REAL smile we've seen on the man. Not a sneer, not a grin, a smile.

It looks good on him. He should do it more often.
