Preview: ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender: Team Avatar Tales’
We’re closing out the week with a preview of some pages from Avatar: The Last Airbender: Team Avatar Tales, an anthology of original stories by different creators. The book is due out in October. Here’s the blurb:
Journey along with Team Avatar as they rescue a pumpkin farmer waylaid by monsters, help an old rival with a hair-raising problem, and reflect on what it means to save the world. Featuring the work of Gene Luen Yang, Faith Erin Hicks, Carla Speed McNeil, Ron Koertge, Dave Scheidt, Sara Goetter, and more, this anthology features stories both hilarious and heartwarming.
This volume also includes the short stories, ”Rebound,” ”Shells,” and ”Sisters,” previously released for Free Comic Book Day and never before collected!
And here’s the preview. Each page is from a different story, so there’s a good range of styles.
