Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Promise Part 2 will be released by Dark Horse Comics on May 30th. Written by Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese), this series tells the story of events directly after the television series finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender. So basically, you’ll enjoy this book a lot more if you’ve finished Avatar on Netflix.
Concluding the trilogy, Dark Horse has also announced a September 26th release date of Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Promise Part 3.
The first volume of The Promise has enjoyed impressive sales and reception. As a fan of the TV series, I enjoyed it quite a bit myself, but with no conclusion it forces you to pick up the next volume. I’m eager to see how The Promise ties-in with the new Avatar animated series The Legend of Korra, which is raising numerous questions about what happened before it. If the next two installments of The Promise continue to find an audience, perhaps a comic series of The Legend of Korra is in the cards.
