I hope they'll sell it on Amazon, cause that's the only way i'll be able to get it.

Anyways, this is great.

Wow. That came out of nowhere... the last we heard about this book idea was almost two years ago in the interview in the Sozin's Comet book and I figured it was just an "oh, it would be nice if we could do this but Nick will never let us and we don't have the time for it anyway" sort of idea.

It's expensive, but I am sure it's going to be amazing and huge and full-color.

...If they're done working on the book now, can they start on the next series? Cheesy

Heh, I didn't read the description very carefully, but I made some pretty accurate assumptions. 9x12 is very big and it is in full-color. Mmm, and hardcover makes me think it's got to be pretty thick. Cheesy EDIT: I am really bad at reading. Tongue It also says it has 184 pages. Not bad at all.

Oh, and before all of you get confused by the title of this thread, the description says it's coming out in May, not June.

A new series has not been confirmed right now, but still, this is a very positive development. I'm glad to know that Nick committed to this new project.

Sweet! I've been waiting for this! Cheesy I'm an artist, and the only art books I have are Fullmetal Alchemist, so it'll be awesome to have some more ideas of pictures to make. Plus it'll add more to my Avatar memorobilia. Grin

Does Aang look a little older in that cover picture, or is it just that I'm still in OMGOMGOMGNEWSTUFFWANTWANTWANT fangirl mode?

Dark Horse is an extreamly good thing in my opinion SMBH. Grin They do amazing Comic Works, and I've bought/read several Star Wars comics from them. So yes, you may proceed to fangirl a little bit more about it!

And about the age thing, I think it's how they drew him. But I agree with Pyve. He does look a bit like Noah. Tongue Not that I mind..it's cool.

Well, it's really neither right now. As Endless noted, they're a big comic publisher, known for doing good work with licensed properties like Star Wars, Alien, Predator, Conan, and other stuff. I just find it interesting that a big, critically acclaimed publisher of licensed products now has a business relationship with Nick and Avatar, and that there's nothing saying that future products of a similar nature aren't coming.

AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER—THE ART OF THE ANIMATED SERIES
Bryan Konietzko (W/A), Michael Dante DiMartino (W/A), and Various (A)
On sale June 2
Full Color, 184 pages $34.99

This will be a beautiful hard cover, coffee table book featuring so much amazing art it will blow your mind! It took a lot of hard work and convincing from the creative staff of the show to make it happen!

Since its debut in 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender has remained one of Nickelodeon's most talked about and highest-rated animated series to date, and it's not too hard to see why . . . Not only does it offer an epic storyline, engaging characters, action, adventure, and a powerful message about the importance of hope in a world long-besieged by war, all the while serving up top-notch entertainment. It's also beautifully executed, a stunning masterpiece of animated storytelling that harmonizes Western influences with aesthetic inspiration drawn from a diverse array of cultures, including those of China, Japan, India, and the Inuit.

An unprecedented look at the concept, design, and production art behind this smash-hit series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Art of the Animated Series chronicles the show's development—from the very first sketch through to the series finale and beyond!—along with behind-the-scenes commentary from series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino.

• Featuring hundreds of images, most of which Nickelodeon has never released to the public!

Why can't June come faster?
