[NYCC’17] Dark Horse announces creative team for new Avatar: The Last Airbender series
Do you love Avatar? Do you love the comic book tales Dark Horse Comics has released thus far? Then you are in for a treat as Dark Horse and Nickelodeon announced a new Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel series from Faith Erin Hicks, and Peter Wartman.
“Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my favorite things in the world. I’m totally not kidding: I remember watching the series finale over ten years ago when I was a struggling animator, wishing I could work on a show that was even ten percent as thoughtful and compelling as Avatar. I was so in love with the world and characters,” mused Faith Erin Hicks. “Even now, there’s nothing that has filled my heart quite like Avatar, and I’m so honored to contribute to the real thing.”
Hicks and Wartman will work with television series executive producers and co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, on a three part graphic novel series set for a fall 2018 release.
