Avatar: The Last Airbender Graphic Novel Reading Order.

Avatar: The Last Airbender was a unique animated series for US television which a broad range of influences. Mixing Chinese mythology with martial arts and fantasy elements, the show was very different to everything else being produced in the US at the time – especially on Nickelodeon, home of Spongebob Squarepants. (Personally, I only caught a handful of episodes back when it was airing but I like it’s approach and the way it used Eastern influences.) While it didn’t have a lengthy stay on TV, lasting 61 episodes over 3 seasons, it did have a very passionate audience who loved the show very dearly. Luckily for fans, Dark Horse Comics acquired the rights to continue the show in comic book form.

Working closely with the creators of the show, Dark Horse have produced a series of graphic novels which pick up where the show left off. All of the graphic novels are written by Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Superman) and art by Gurihiru. The creative team works very closely with the Avatar creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko with the plot so it should definitely please the fans. So far this has worked quite well with the graphic novels being well liked by fans and critics.

With another graphic novel trilogy beginning soon, Dark Horse want to make sure Avatar fans know that the series has continued in this format. They’ve done so by releasing their Avatar: The Last Airbender Graphic Novel Timeline which you’ll be able to see below. I’ll also expand on the timeline with a listing of all the graphic novels that have been released so far.
