North and South Part 1
We are getting yet another new comic series after Smoke and Shadow! Penguin Random House released the cover image for North and South - Part One.

The description for North and South - Part One is listed below:

"When Aang leaves to aid Zuko with the Kemurikage, Katara and Sokka return to the Southern Water Tribe by themselves. Katara is shocked to find that her beloved village has become a bustling city, with none other than their father, Hakoda, in charge! A Northerner named Malina seems to be behind this change, pushing the North and South to be more unified…but what are her true goals?"

Like the previous comics, North and South will be written by Gene Luan Yang in collaboration with Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. Gurihiru will draw and color the comics, as usual.

North and South - Part One is slated for release on September 27 2016. The book is available for pre-order on Amazon and Book Depository.

Smoke and Shadow Part 3
Via ATLA Online comes the cover image, release date, and summary info for the third comic in the Smoke and Shadow series. You can see the cover image here on the left. The description, found on Amazon (where you can now preorder it) reads as follows:

"Children are disappearing in the Fire Nation capitol! Avatar Aang and his friends are doing everything in their power to save them--but will it be enough?!

What's worse, when Azula--the mad sister of Fire Lord Zuko--appears on the scene, Zuko locks down the capitol to catch her, igniting fear and riots in the streets! Will Zuko follow in his evil father's footsteps in order to save those he holds dear?!"

Azula!!! Azula's back! Wooo!!!

Smoke and Shadow Part 3 will be released on April 12, 2016.

We've got some ATLA related news! At SDCC 2015 last week, Gene Luen Yang, writer for the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics published by Dark Horse, won an Esiner Award for "Best Writer" for his work on the ATLA comic and the graphic novel "The Shadow Hero". Congratulations to Gene! You can read the full list of winners in this IGN article and also glimpse at some pictures of Gene accepting the award in this post.

In other news according to Bryan's tumblr post, it seems there will be a newly-packaged DVD box set for the complete series of Avatar: The Last Airbender that would go on sale in the United States and Canada on October 6th this year. A picture of Aang is embedded in this post and you click on the image for a full view. You can also read Bryan's post to see more cover art of each book featuring the other main characters of the show.

I think it's amazing that after all these years, we finally get a complete series DVD box set. Maybe there would be one for The Legend of Korra series down the road too? We can only wait and see...
