Official Zhao storyZhao wants his crew to rejoice!
Dark Horse comic will offer this coming July a compilation of all the Avatar short stories that were printed in Nickelodeon magazine, plus never before seen material! 240 pages of Avatar goodness!
The Admiral does have a short story in it, which will also appear as preview during free comic book day on May 7th.
You can count on the club to have some of the books to give away in a future contest. We haven't had one of those in a while.
Stay tuned for more!
Contest Prizes CONTEST PRIZES
First off, apologies for the delay. The prizes are finally being sent out today. I'm afraid being a slave to the Admiral sometime eats up all available time.
The only two prizes that haven't been sent yet are for elmenora (currently on the move- escaping the Admiral) and Ritualist (information still missing, or would that be missing in action?).
Once again, thank you all for your great entries!
And now, some existential questions:
Why is it that the movie!Zhao toy is smaller than the movie!Zuko toy, making him look like a teenager?
Why does movie!Zhao's toy box give him the title of General and not Admiral?
Why am I even asking?
The top entries !CONTEST RESULTS!
First off, apologies to everyone for this late posting. I am just emerging from work deadline crunch AND preparing for comicon.
But the wait is now over:
Our top two entries for the Zhao's secrets contest are:
9) by INKNOSE
6) by lily-stardust
And a special one to 10) by Booter-Freak
All three will be getting the "ATLA Art of the animated series" hardcover book. Congratulations!!
The Admiral has asked that everyone be...persuaded not to spread anymore false rumours about his personal life.
Therefore, all other entries will receive the Zuko Prequel manga.
Of course we cannot be bribed so easily, so keep those not so shining moments about Zhao coming.
Or nice ones, if you feel so inclined.
So all twelve participants, please send a note either to the club or rufftoon with where to mail your prizes. I will ask for a bit more patience since I will be at SDCC, but I
The contest is over! !CONTEST ENDS!
Apologies for taking some time to get back to you all. Movie!Zhao was telling me this fascinating story about a scroll and a library he found.
Once again, our contributors have given us some memorable entries!

Zhao: Secrets !NEW CONTEST!
Zhao has plenty of secrets to hide. Like any sleazy, corrupt and ambitious man, he has his own tricks to climb the military and social ladders.
But there are other secrets, like a certain weakness for cake.
This contest is all about finding what Zhao has to hide.
It could be serious business. Perhaps his dreams to take over the fire nation from Ozai.
Or maybe he doesn't want anyone to know that in private, he enjoys the new Red Dead Revolver game, is a fan of the Twilight books or doesn't mind a little karaoke session every once in a while.
It's all up to you to come up with the most serious or silliest Zhao secret.
There will be two categories: one for prose and one for illustrations. This one is open to members only. You can enter in either or both category, but can only win once.
Though preference should be on animation!Zhao, movie!Zhao will also be accepted.
The admiral will bribe you to keep th
Be prepared!Even if a proper theme for the next contest has not yet been decided, the basic idea for how it will work is down.
There will be two categories this time: one for art, one for prose. That way, our fiction writing members, who are here but seem a bit shy about waxing poetics about our favorite admiral, will have a chance to stretch out their writing muscles.
Prizes will include the beautiful Avatar: The art of the Animated series hardcover books and the Zuko prequel manga written by :iconyaytime: , :iconaliwildgoose: and illustrated by the talented :iconspacecoyote:
For this upcoming contest, your input and suggestions are still very much welcome! Think about what you'd like to draw or write about.
In other news, we finally have the first clear image of movie!Zhao.
He is seen here, cowering away from animation!Zhao (off screen), about to challenge him to an Agni Kai for not sporting proper sideburns.
Yes, that's it movie!Zhao. Back away from superior animation!Zhao.
Contest update and looking ahead Members Gallery Favs FAQ
A very quick note for the participants of our previous contest: most of the prizes have been shipped out today. Please, let me know when you receive them so I know everything arrived without trouble.
I will have the remaining ones sent out next Saturday, the moment I have those new customs paper filled out.
We ship worldwide, it just takes extra paperwork.
I would be very interested to have some suggestions for the next club contest. Should we do something that is prose writing? Keep up with drawings? A mix of the two? Any Zhao related subject you would like to tackle?
