Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. My choice this week:

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise, Part 1, by Gene Luen Yang and Gurihiru
Publisher: Dark Horse
Release date: January 25, 2012

According to Dark Horse:

This series of digests rejoins Aang and friends for exciting new adventures, beginning with a faceoff against the Fire Nation that threatens to throw the world into another war, testing all of Aang's powers and ingenuity!

I reviewed the first Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel several months ago, a collection of "missing moments" from the original series. While that volume was quite enjoyable, this one is bound to be even more awesome, as it's the continuation of the original series. That's right kids: continuation. And it's apparently a link to the upcoming sequel series, Legend of Korra!


And it's being written by Gene Luen Yang. Printz Award winning Gene Luen Yang! Author of American Born Chinese, the first graphic novel to win the Printz Award! Who was clearly a fan of Avatar even before he signed on to this project.



I've been a fan of Yang's work ever since I happened to pick up an ARC of Loyola Chin and the San Peligran Order at a California Library Association conference in 2005. And then he won the Printz for American Born Chinese, and I felt like, "Hey, I knew about that guy before he was cool!" He's enormously talented and seems like an all-around awesome person, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what he does with the Avatar universe.

  4. IEEE Project Domain management in software engineering is distinct from traditional project deveopment in that software projects have a unique lifecycle process that requires multiple rounds of testing, updating, and faculty feedback. A IEEE Domain project Final Year Projects for CSE system development life cycle is essentially a phased project model that defines the organizational constraints of a large-scale systems project. The methods used in a IEEE DOmain Project systems development life cycle strategy Project Centers in India provide clearly defined phases of work to plan, design, test, deploy, and maintain information systems.

    This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
