According to Dark Horse, Gene Luen Yang is the writer for the upcoming Last Airbender book. “[T]his series of graphic novels rejoins Aang and friends for exciting new adventures, beginning with a face-off against the Fire Nation that threatens to throw the world into another war, testing all of Aang’s powers and ingenuity. In addition to continuing the story line established in the first three seasons of the show, this new graphic novel serves as an essential bridge to the animated series The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra, coming to Nickelodeon in 2013.”
This is not Yang’s first Avatar-themed work. He was quite vocal in a web-comic about his opposition to the casting of the Avatar movie.
We are very excited to see what happens with this new series!
With eighty pages of all-new content, The Promise arrives on January 25, 2012.
