Dark Horse’s Avatar Graphic Novel Tops New York Times Best Sellers List


Nickelodeon and Dark Horse’s graphic novel Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift Part 1 managed to debut at the top of the New York Times’ Best Sellers list for the week, beating the massively popular The Walking Dead Compendium. The new graphic novel continues Avatar: The Last Airbender, and serves as a great companion to The Legend of Korra.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift Part 1 was written and illustrated by Gene Luen Yang and Gurihiru, with help and input from Avatar: The Last Airbender and the Legend of Korra creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. The story focuses on Aang as he asks his friends for help in honoring an Air Nomad holiday, which hasn’t been celebrated in over a century.

However, cryptic visits from the spirit of an earlier Avatar leads Aang to discover a jointly owned Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom refinery that operates on land sacred to the Airbenders. Is this the cause of the pollution Aang finds there or is something more mysterious happening?
