Faith Erin Hicks and Peter Wartman are to take over the creative leads on the Dark Horse and Nickelodeon series of original graphic novels based on Avatar: The Last Airbender, replacing the previous creative team of Gurihiru and Gene Luen Yang.
And Faith is a fan from the outset:
“Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my favourite 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 honoured to contribute to the real thing.”
Hicks and Wartman will collaborate with the Avatar: The Last Airbender television series executive producers and co-creators, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, on the next three-part graphic novel series in Dark Horse’s publishing program.
Hicks had already written a 10-page story starring Sokka and Suki for Dark Horse’s 2014 Free Comic Book Day. The next volume of Avatar: The Last Airbender however will take a year to be published, available in autumn 2018.
