Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise Part 1
That is why the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics started from the same place the TV show did: creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. To us, they revealed untold chapters in the story of Team Avatar, chapters to be told in the comics.
Just as on the TV show Michael and Bryan teamed with the finest talents in animation to bring their vision to the screen, with the comics they have teamed with the Japanese art-duo Gurihiru and award-winning author Gene Luen Yang to continue their vision on the page.
This January, Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise Part 1 begins a trilogy of original graphic novels that reveal what happens next to the heroes and villains from the TV show after the final episode. Taking place one year after the events of the last season, these graphic novels begin a new adventure for Aang and his friends that will change their lives and change their world.
With Gurihiru, Gene Luen Yang, best known for his graphic novel American Born Chinese, weaves a tale of a world learning the ways of peace after a century of war. It is a difficult lesson, one that will threaten to tear the friendship of Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko apart, and plunge the world back into war.
Like all fans, Dark Horse wants to return to our favorite places, see our old friends, only if they are the real deal, and not some shadowy facsimile. That is why we are so glad, and so proud, to present to you The Promise Part 1—this is it, the genuine article. Team Avatar is back, and we can’t wait to show you what they’ve been up to.
