Lots of news this week, this time comic news. Most of you may have been aware that there was an Avatar comic for Free Comic Book Day 2011 which included the comics: Relics and Dirty Is Only Skin Deep. There was no Avatar comic for 2012, but Dark Horse have just announced their FCBD line up for 2013 and it includes an Avatar Comic.

Free Comic Book Day 2013 will be May 4th 2013

Dark Horse’s description of this free comic says this,

And the smash hit Avatar: The Last Airbender follows Mai as she deals with her broken heart . . .

As you can see from the cover, Gene Yang is once again the writer, but we have a new Avatar artist in Ryan Hill. I am very interested to see how this art looks on the interior.

I am also happy to see Mai be the focus of this comic as she was quite conspicuous in her absence from The Promise Part 2 and 3. So in a way this comic may serve as the “What happened to Mai during The Promise Part 2 and 3 into The Search” comic.

What are your thoughts on this comic ?

    Plot wise; the promise was about world peace and the search is about finding Zukos mom. I wonder what the message will be of Mai’s broken heart and finding Zukos mom. I’ve liked all the comics so far.

    How would we receive these “free comic” books? Just go to a comic store which distributes ATLA? I’m so used to purchasing my stuff from amazon, lol.

    Only certain comic shops participate in Free Comic Book Day, just go to one that is on May 4th 2013 and you can get as many of the free comics as you want (depends on the store).

    Ok, so you go to this website and type in your ZIP/Postal code or address and pick a comic shop that is near you : http://www.comicshoplocator.com/Home/1/1/57/575
    It will be held at the store and you get it on May 4th, 2013. All you have to do is drive out to the store during store hours to get it, I’m pretty sure it is free.

    You don’t think it might be when Zuko leaves at the invasion? I think it would make more sense to do it in the show time than the Promise time. People might get really confused if they don’t know about the Promise books.

    Well based on Zuko’s design on the cover it pretty much confirms it is The Promise time.

    So cooool!
    I love to Mai, and my favorite couple in Avatar is Maiko <3 xD
    I was "sad" because they ended their relationship in The Promise :(
    But now I hope they to be a couple again, and many years later them to have a daughter, that would be very nice and cute for me! :D
