These Avatar: The Last Airbender Posters Have Mastered All Four Elements

Water. Earth. Fire. Air. The forces that hold all benders together also bind together these excellent posters.

Created by artist Shane Sandulak, these four posters, each based on a single element, bring together the broad, compelling cast of characters from both the original Avatar and its followup, The Legend of Korra, all around encompassing seven seasons of riveting television and character growth.

I’ve recently started re-watching Avatar: The Last Airbender, and it’s incredible how effectively the characters land, even in the first few episodes.

Part of the reason fan art like Sandulak’s is so great is because these characters are really worth memorializing, all of them with interesting conflicts and story moments to call their own.

Sandulak was generous enough to let us feature the posters on io9, and you can check out more of his work on Twitter and Art Station.

    They really need a new series. One of the ideas I remember floated at one point was to set it in that worlds modern day, with 'modern tech' compared to where Korra was upto, where the Benders were a forgotten thing, a 'myth', each Nation became a 'Nation state'. Then something happens, the coming of some evil force and the Benders basically come out of hiding, showing the world they're not a myth etc.

      If it counts, the lead writer is partnering with Netflix for a new program.
