Here’s some awesome news for you fans of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’. A new comic book series will soon be released by Dark Horse Comics which will focus on the story of the newly crowned Fire Lord Zuko. Written by Gene Yang (Superman and Boxers and Saints) and illustrated by Gurihiru (Thor and Captain America), the new series is titled ‘Smoke and Shadow’ and promises to keep with the energy of the original series from Nickelodeon.
“One of the best things about working on the comics is that we get to tie up some loose ends that the series left,” Yang reveals to Entertainment Weekly. “And the series left them intentionally, I’ve talked to Mike [Dante DiMartino] and Brian [Konietzko], the creators of the original show about it, and we talked about how life in general, we often have loose ends so they wanted that feel. So in the comic, we bring some resolution.” The story will be released as three volumes before being collected into a single hardcover edition. It will follow the events of the story ‘The Rift’. ‘Smoke and Shadow – Part One’ will be available in stores on September 23rd and the second part will be released in December 16th.
