Avatar The Last Airbender Series “The Promise: Part 1″ To follow events Shortly after Season 3 in Comic Form – Pre Order Now
We have some AWESOME new Avatar news. This time it is about Avatar Comics from Dark Horse. We found out with the announcement of The Lost Adventures that there would be Graphic novels coming early 2012 that would continue on Avatar The Last Airbender post book 3. Just today we have our first look at the first of what seems to be many Graphic novels.
Important Confirmed Details
- Events will take place 1 year after the end of Season 3
- Original Series Creators, Mike & Bryan are involved, so this will be way good stuff
- Zuko Appears to have yet another cool new hairstyle
- Developed by the Geniuses behind Avatar The Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures a huge hit.

Now for more specifics about this book
- It will have the same dimensions as The Lost Adventures at 6 inch by 9 inch, but will be 80 pages long the equivalent of just less than 4 single issue comic books.
- Art will be done by Gurihiru, who’s work can be seen in The Lost Adventures in Dirty Is Only Skin Deep, Boys Day Out and Monster Slayer etc.( Dirty Is Only Skin Deep can be read here http://avatarthelastairbenderonline.com/avatarthelastairbenderfreecomics/)
- It will be written by Gene Luen Yang, who is the author of the book American Born Chinese, I don’t think he has been “¬†involved with Avatar before now
- It will come out January 25th 2012
- While The Lost adventures had an age rating of 8+ this book is 10+ so I presume things will be more serious here.
- The price on the solicit is $10.99
- They will take place 1 year after the end of the series
- This will be the first of a trilogy of books.
And probably the most interesting part of this, the description
“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!
“The continuation of”¬†Airbender and the link to its upcoming sequel,”¬†Legend of Korra!”
“tale of a world learning the ways of peace after a century of war. It is a difficult lesson, one that will threaten to tear the friendship of Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko apart, and plunge the world back into war.”
This tells us a few things, that this will in some way link into Korra, which to me suggests that the various volumes each split into parts will cover Aang and co at a different point in their post war lives. The Fire Nation still have some people loyal to Ozai’s regime, which Aang and Zuko will need to sort out and may leave them with opposing ideas on how to do this.
