Dark Horse Comics Announces 'Avatar: The Last Airbender - Imbalance Part Two'

Dark Horse Comics have announced the second part of their hit three part Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel series, "Imbalance", the official continuation of Airbender from its creators, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko!


Avatar: The Last Airbender — Imbalance finds Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph dealing with a conflict between benders and non-benders in a booming industrial town. Perhaps the story will explore connective tissue between the end of Avatar and sequel series Legend of Korra, which featured a much more industrial world and began with high tensions between benders and non-benders.

In Avatar: The Last Airbender - Imbalance Part One, set to be released on Tuesday, December 18th, when Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph return to Earthen Fire Industries--the factory owned by Toph's father--Team Avatar finds that the once small town is now booming. Expecting a warm welcome, Aang is surprised when their arrival is met with unimpressed, cold-shouldered spectators. As soon as the team is asked for help at a business council meeting, the reason for the slight becomes clear--a massive bender versus non-bender conflict has gripped the town and is threatening to turn violent.

In Avatar: The Last Airbender - Imbalance Part Two, slated to be released on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, Aang and Team Avatar race to resolve rising tensions between benders and non-benders before a town is torn apart! There's something fishy going on in Cranefish Town, and it's up to Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph to find out what, before the simmering conflict between benders and non-benders boils over into all-out war. But danger lurks where they least expect it, and uncovering the truth will reveal a threat unlike any they've ever faced--and a fateful choice for Aang he can never unmake! The issue has a SRP of $10.99. (TP; DEC180407; Final Orders Due: Jan 07, 2019)

A release date for the concluding part of the story, Avatar: The Last Airbender - Imbalance Part Three is still to be announced.

Avatar: The Last Airbender — Imbalance features the debut of writer Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City) and artist Peter Wartman, who are taking the reins from longtime Avatar comics writer Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese). Like Yang, Hicks and Wartman will be working in collaboration with Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko.
