New “Avatar: The Last Airbender” comic series coming soon, titled “Imbalance” & one-shot anthology

Ahead of Emerald City Comic Con, Dark Horse Comics is thrilled to reveal information about upcoming publications in the Avatar: The Last Airbender publishing series this fall.

Avatar: The Last Airbender–Team Avatar Tales is a one-shot anthology of stories from the Avatarverse featuring beloved characters brought to life by a cast of all-star creators. It features never-before-collected stories from Free Comic Book Day publications and also debuts several brand-new stories. Fans can journey along with Team Avatar as they rescue a pumpkin farmer waylaid by monsters, go undercover in the Fire Nation, help an old rival with a hair-raising problem, and reflect on what it means to save the world. Featuring the work of Gene Luen Yang (Avatar: The Last Airbender—North and South), Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City), Carla Speed McNeil (Finder), Ron Koertge (Vampire Planet), Dave Scheidt (Dreamworks Trolls, Wrapped Up), Sara Goetter (Dungeon Critters, Boozle), and more, this anthology features stories both hilarious and heartwarming. The beautiful cover is by artist Sara Kipin (The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic).

Avatar: The Last Airbender—Imbalance Part One is the official continuation of the bestselling Dark Horse graphic novel series. Writer Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl, The Last of Us: American Dreams) and artist Peter Wartman (Stonebreaker, Over the Wall) have signed on as the new creative team, in collaboration with Avatar: The Last Airbender TV series co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. This new three-part adventure follows Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph as they return to Earthen Fire Industries—the factory owned by Toph’s father—and Team Avatar find that the once-small town of Cranefish is now booming. Expecting a warm welcome, Aang is surprised when their arrival is met with disinterest and even open hostility. At a business council meeting, the reason for the slight becomes clear: A massive bender versus non-bender conflict has gripped the town’s inhabitants, and is threatening to turn violent!

Avatar: The Last Airbender–Team Avatar Tales goes on sale September 5, 2018, and is available for preorder on Amazon, and at your local comic shop. This 80-page collection retails for $10.99.

Avatar: The Last Airbender—Imbalance Part One goes on sale October 10, 2018, and is available for preorder on Amazon, and at your local comic shop. This 80-page graphic novel retails for $10.99.

WATCH – Grey Delisle tells the best stories at BoroughCon 2017

Here is the full Q & A panel with Grey DeLisle (AKA Daphne of Scooby-Doo fame) at BoroughCon 2017.

The veteran voice actress got her break as the role of Reptar on Rugrats in 1994. Since then she has starred in hundreds of popular cartoons including The Fairly Odd Parents, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Star Wars: Clone Wars, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Danny Phantom, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Batman: The Animated Series, Green Lantern, Wow Wow Wubbzy and Clifford, the Big Red Dog. Still, she is best known as the voice of Daphne that she has performed on Scooby-Doo since 1997.

Gamers recognize her voice from such titles as Monkey Island, and the characters of Nova in Starcraft, the Female Wizard in Diablo 3, and both Vicky Vale and Catwoman in the Batman: Arkham City video game.

For those who don’t want to sit through the entire panel, here are a few hilarious highlights with Grey:

In this clip, Grey talks about her Grandmother, and how much she loathes Spongebob Squarepants and an incident with the Taco Bell Chihuahua.

Things took an unexpected turn at BoroughCon 2017, when Jess Harnell invaded Grey Delisle’s Q & A panel and asked her about some pretty crazy stories that involved the voice behind Daphne from Scooby-Doo and Azula from Avatar going to an amateurs night at a strip club, and working for the Spice channel.

That title may sound pretty innocent, but this video features a few hilarious stories about Avatar, orgasms & the craziness that is her son.

Grey also appeared during the “Women in Voice Acting” panel and “Toons You Grew Up With” panel.

The Legend of Korra continues with new graphic novel series “Turf Wars”

Dark Horse Comics will release the first volume in a brand-new The Legend of Korra graphic novel series, The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars in June 2017. This three-part graphic novel series is written by Nickelodeon TV series co-creator and executive producer Michael Dante DiMartino, drawn by Irene Koh (Batgirl, 1602, TMNT), with covers by Heather Campbell (Free Comic Book Day 2016: The Legend of Korra), colors by Jane Bak, and consultation by TV series co-creator and executive producer Bryan Konietzko.

Turf Wars begins with Korra and Asami leaving the spirit world and returning to Republic City only to find political hijinks and human vs. spirit conflict, as a pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. In addition, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal brawl at the city’s borders where hundreds of evacuees have relocated. In order to get through it all, Korra and Asami vow to look out for each other—but first, they’ve got to get better at being a team.

Dark Horse’s award-winning Avatar: The Last Airbender program has seen multiple number-one New York Times bestsellers and continues to grow with the current North and South series written by Gene Luen Yang, an Eisner Award winner and the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. Turf Wars is the latest release in an ongoing partnership between Nickelodeon and Dark Horse to bring fans the very best in graphic novels.

The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Parts 1–3 will serve as the official continuation of The Legend of Korra television series.

NYCC 2015: BRITTNEY WILLIAMS JOINS “LEGEND OF KORRA” CREATIVE TEAM

unnamedThe Legend of Korra continues!

At New York Comic Con 2015, Dark Horse Comics announced that Brittney Williams (Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat) will be the artist for its line of Legend of Korra comics.

“Brittney Williams is one of those exceptional talents whose work captures the essence of beloved characters in a style entirely her own,” said Dark Horse editor in chief Dave Marshall. “She brings Korra and her world to the page in a way that is simultaneously fresh and true to their origins.”

Brittney Williams will join The Legend of Korra writer and cocreator Michael Dante DiMartino for the new series of original graphic novels, which will begin in late 2016, continuing the story of the fan-favorite and award-winning animated series.

Dark Horse to create merchandise for “Avatar: The Last Airbender” & “The Legend of Korra”

Dark Horse Comics and Nickelodeon are expanding their incredibly successful publishing partnership to include a wide range of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra collectable items. These brand-new products ranging from figures to plush will debut at International Toy Fair in New York February 2014, and will be released in May.

This new program extends the success of the certified best-selling Dark Horse art books and graphic novels, based on the work of series creators and executive producers Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, into the realm of collectable products.

A full list of products in development include: limited-edition statues, figurines, and busts, as well as, featured plush, drinking glasses, cups, coffee mugs, coaster sets, magnets, playing cards, badges, pins, lunch boxes, sculptural pins, among other items.

“Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra are some of the finest animated television shows ever created,” said David Scroggy, Dark Horse Vice President, Product Development. “We feel a strong responsibility to bring forward the creators’ vision as accurately as possible in the style they have established, and we are excited to bring these products to fans.
