Dark Horse Comics will launch Avatar: The Next Shadow, a four-issue comic miniseries that takes place after the first Avatar feature and before the upcoming sequel, in January.  Written by Jeremy Barlow, with art by Josh Hood and covers by Gui Balbi, the story begins days after the destruction of the Na’vi Hometree.  Internal conflicts threaten to tear the Omatikaya apart, and there’s a treacherous plot to remove Jake Sully from the clan forever.

Dark Horse previously released Avatar: Tsu’tey’s Path, which explores a background story of the original Avatar, in 2019 (see "James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ from a New Perspective").
