Dark Horse to Publish Avatar: The Last Airbender Comics

Press Release

DARK HORSE AND NICKELODEON CONSUMER PRODUCTS ANNOUNCE A MULTI-PART PUBLISHING PROGRAM BASED ON THE ORGINAL ANIMATED SERIES AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER!

MILWAUKIE, OR – Feb. 8, 2011 – Following the breakout success of last year’s Avatar: The Last Airbender—The Art of the Animated Series, Dark Horse is proud to collaborate with Nickelodeon on a comprehensive publishing program built around this beloved and exciting Emmy-winning animated series!

The first installment of this new series will be released on Free Comic Book Day, May 7, with two introductory short stories—the unpublished tale “Relics” and the iconic Dirty Is Only Skin Deep… This free comic will be packaged with Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars in a special flip-book comic, available only at your local comic book shop.

Avatar: The Last Airbender—The Lost Adventures will be released on July 13. This all-new 240-page comic book contains over 70 pages of never-before-seen material in addition to long-out-of-print comics previously published in Nickelodeon Magazine. With 26 stories set in Airbender continuity and created by a host of top-notch talent, many of whom worked on the original animated series, this is an essential addition to any fan’s bookshelf.

Additionally, Dark Horse will create all-new Airbender stories that will be published as digest-style original graphic novels—conveniently sized paperback collections—in early 2012. Picking up where the season three finale left off, this new series will follow the further adventures of Aang and his friends, as they help to rebuild a world torn apart by 100 years of war.

“We had a great experience collaborating with Dark Horse on Avatar: The Last Airbender — The Art of the Animated Series,” series co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino said. “We are excited to work closely with them once again to bring the further adventures of Avatar Aang and his friends to the comic world.”
