The Search Hardcover revealed


Thanks to the monthly comic previews we now know that there will be a Hardcover edition of The Search comic series.

The Search Hardcover


According to the preview it is out 2/5/2014, February 5th 2014.

(W) Gene Luen Yang & Various (A/CA) Gurihiru
The biggest mystery of Avatar-the fate of Fire Lord Zuko’s mother-is revealed in this remarkable oversized hardcover collecting parts 1-3 of The Search, from Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko!Featuring annotations by Eisner Award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese) and artistic team Gurihiru (Thor and the Warriors Four), and a brand-new sketchbook, this is a story that Avatar fans need in an edition they will love!
So this means it is going to be the same style of The Promise Hardcover. The pages will be bigger than the single parts, but there will be a border around them and certain pages will have annotations from Gene Yang and Team Gurihiru, plus a couple of pages of concept art for the comics.
I am really excited for this as I loved this first hardcover, it was a very impressive book and since The Search is an extremely important story in the Avatar Universe I will be picking this up for sure. The new cover looks great too, I really like the decision to have the characters on a white background with the scenery around the edges of the cover.
The Search Part 3 (final part) will be out October 30th this year in comic stores. With this hardcover out February 5th next year.

    I love that they use a lot more light colors rather then dark.

    Is it just me, or are the colors a little off?

    It is just a scan put together for really advanced previews, I assume some edits will be done in the 4 and a half months to release.

    Once again, i don’t know whether to get the Search part 2 and 3 or to get the hardcover itself and try to get rid of part 1

    i wonder how much this will cost, im still working on getting the promise hardcover series 😛


    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    40 dollars is the retail price, but Amazon will probably have it for around 25-35.

    ahh, that will be much more affordable.

    do you know when it will be up for pre-order?
