Posted by Icy_Ashford on December 18th, 2014 @ 8:54 AM EST (782)
comic line up for Free Comic Book Day 2015 is out and once again, we will have an Avatar: The Last Airbender comic. We don't know the details of the story yet but it features Ty Lee and Toph on the cover. Quite an interesting combination.
The writer for this comic is Gene Luen Yang who also writes the main ATLA comics. The artist is Carla Speed McNeil whom is an artist new to this franchise.
FCBD will fall on May 2nd 2015 (Saturday) so keep your eyes peeled for a sneak preview in the future.
Fourth Avatar comics trilogy announced: "Smoke and Shadow"
Posted by SMBH on December 2nd, 2014 @ 8:59 PM EST (780)
announced yesterday the continuation of the Avatar comics series written by Gene Luen Yang and illustrated by Gurihiru.
The fourth trilogy will be titled Smoke and Shadow (it doesn't start with "The"!), and takes place after the events of The Rift (the third trilogy, after "The Promise" which was the first, and "The Search" which came second).
The story focus will be "on the Fire Nation and a segment of the population none too happy with the rule of Fire Lord Zuko".
The comic will go into detail about a group of people we first met on the ATLA Free Comic Book Day 2013 comic titled Rebound -- the New Ozai Society, a group of malcontents who are rebelling against the new post-war government of the Fire Nation, and whose leader is Mai's father.
Will Mai and Zuko get back together? Will we see Azula again? Will Zuko suffer through yet more assassination attempts? (poor kid). We'll need to wait until September 23, 2015 for the release of Smoke and Shadow, Part 1, to start finding out!
The CBR article also includes an interview with Gene, and images of the covers for the first two books in the trilogy, which we have reproduced here on the right. Click on the thumbnails to see the cover images at full size.
Yay for more Avatar comics!

on avaterthelastairbenderonline. If you've read the previous two installments, you might find the last couple of pages rather touching.
Part 3 will be released on November 5th 2014 so you have to wait a little while longer to get to the conclusion of this tale.
The Rift Part 2 preview pages

some preview images of The Rift Part 2 that will be out later this month.
Don't you feel like giving Toph a hug even though she might shove you away? Too bad the moment is interrupted by the Rough Rhinos. I'm sure all will turn out fine.
