Return To The Airbender Universe With Two New Comics Projects

You could make a pretty good case for Avatar: The Last Airbender being one of the best new pop culture mythologies to debut in the last decade or so. Creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko made a world where young people embodied hope, even as they were thrust into a war that tore their lives apart.

Yeah, there was a crappy movie, but overall, the Airbender fiction is a poignant adventure that constantly surprises you with how it ups the stakes.

Airbender acolytes can get a deeper look inside the Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation and Air Nomads thanks to two new books being published by Dark Horse Comics. First up is Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search, Part Two, followed by The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series, Book One. Both books come out in July and you can get an exclusive look inside the Korra artbook via the images below.

    Couldnt really get into the show not enough boys poking woman's vagina's like in dragon ball

      That's a really specific reason

        Also a reason that is, you know, wrong. About both series.

          Guess you didnt watch much original dragon ball

            You mean where Goku pats Bulmas crotch? Once? In the entire 500+ episode saga?

            That was only in the first 2 seasons or so, hardly constitutes the entire run, especially since it largely moves away from being a gag comic.

    The world would benefit greatly from more Avatar.
