Since its launch, Dark Horse Comics’ “Avatar: The Last Airbender” series has been told through a series of graphic novel trilogies, but the series is getting a shake up with its first stand-alone graphic novel, “Avatar: The Last Airbender — Katara and the Pirate’s Silver,” this October.

The Beat announced the book will reunite the ‘Imbalance’ trilogy writer Faith Erin Hicks, artist Peter Wartman, colorist Adele Matera, and letterer Jimmy Betancourt for a story focused on Katara. Not only that, they’ll be joined by Tim Hedrick, a writer on the Avatar: The Last Airbender TV series, who wrote classic episodes such as “The Swamp,” “Lake Laogai,” and “The Puppetmaster.”

“Katara and the Pirate’s Silver” will see Katara separated from Aang, Sokka, and Toph after a Fire Nation ambush. This is a story that will explore Katara’s tougher side, making unlikely allies and avoiding capture while she tries to reunite with her friends.

“Avatar: The Last Airbender — Katara and the Pirate’s Silver” will come out in comic stores in early October, followed by a book store release on October 13th, 2020. The book will be eighty pages with a retail price of $12.99. It’s among several other releases Dark Horse have planned to mark the 15th anniversary of the series, which premiered February 21, 2005.
