Dark Horse has announced that Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City) and Peter Wartman (Over the Wall) will take over the Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel series, based on the television show that used to air on Nickelodeon.
“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 10 percent as thoughtful and compelling as Avatar. I was so in love with the world and characters,” said Hicks. “Even now, there’s nothing that has filled my heart quite like Avatar, and I’m so honored to contribute to the real thing.”
