_______

Dark Horse Comics announced the first volume of their Avatar the Last Airbender Graphic Novel series: http://www.darkhorse.com/Books/18-604/Avatar-The-Last-Airbender-Volume-1-The-Promise-Part-1-TPB.

The Promise was written by writer/artist/creator Gene Luen Yang and illustrated by the creative team GuriHiru (illustrator Sasaki, Colorist Kawano).

This thread is for speculation about the story. For question on release dates and buying the books, see A:TLA Graphic Novels in the Marketplace. For other comics that might still be coming in the future, see Future Avatar Comics.


Thread split off from Future Avatar Comics and links & explanation added (with thanks to Avatar_Mom).

Aw, they brought that artist back. At least the writer sounds competent, even if he's a no-name.

So, who else is loving the new outfits?

Let's hope he's a capable writer for the Avatar comics, and doesn't make mistakes like Azula's "little brother"...

Reading about him, I'm fairly heartened. He's an Eisner-award winning comic writer, up on geek culture, and specializes in intelligent young adult material. I have an inkling that he's One of Us.

That's so cool! Well, I'm guessing this new one is the one that Amazon got confused on when they were releasing the Lost Adventures.

I WANT IT!

But wait a sec, where is Suki? I can't imagine her not being part of the Gaang by this point.

You know, I was hoping either Sokka or Zuko having a goatee. They all look about the same.

Now that looks awesome. Pity they had to hire the artist who chibifies everyone.

Gene's writing is very intelligent. He's pretty down to earth, but his approach makes you think. I suggest reading American Born Chinese and check out other publications he's been a part of. a few years ago, i fell for "secret identities" and started looking around for more writers/artists recommended by the team that contributed to SI. found gene, and i have been interested in his work ever since. Level Up is a collaboration with Thien Pham that i highly recommend. its very funny!

judging by his ability to bring characters to life through his writing, i am pretty satisfied with this announcement. i am definitely going to read more of his work to get a true feel for his writing style.

Awesome cover. Aang looks a little young, but that's not too bad. And I like Toph's new clothes the most.

Ditto. Though I don't expect her to show up right away.

But seriously, I can't imagine Sukka no longer being in existence, so it's odd she's not on the cover.

the style may have been chosen to appeal to the young reader demographic. i really like this artist, but i hope we see many different styles of art represented in later publications as well Smiley

I think (hopefully) Suki will be there, but they just chose not to have her in the cover. But other than that...
