Hicks Takes Over 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'

With Wartman on art duties

Source: Avatar: The Last Airbender comic gets new creators, new designs

After the animated Avatar: The Last Airbender left Nickelodeon's airwaves in 2008, Dark Horse Comics helped to fill the void for fans by publishing Aang's adventures in comic form. Many of those titles were written by Gene Luen Yang, with the most recent trilogy of books being the North and South  series.

Starting in 2018, a new creative team will be taking over the Avatar comics. Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl) will be taking over the writing duties of the comic, while Peter Wartman (Over the Wall) will be doing the art. Avatar: The Last Airbender's co-creators, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, will remain close to the project as they have been in the past. Hicks was very enthusiatic about her new project:

"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. Even now, there's nothing that has filled my heart quite like Avatar, and I'm so honored to contribute to the real thing."


No story details or title have been revealed, but here are some drawings of how Wartman will be handling some of the main characters:
