SDCC: Dark Horse Announces "Legend of Korra" Comic Book Series

Dark Horse Comics announced an all-new comic book series taking place in the world of "Korra" and written by "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "Korra" co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino.

Details about the series are currently unknown but as with Dark Horse's previous "Avatar" comic installments -- and especially with DiMartino writing -- it most likely will be considered canon. And while the gif by "Avatar" co-creator Bryan Konietzko following this article isn't official art from the upcoming series, Dark Horse used it for the announcement. Considering it features Korra and Asami -- confirmed as a couple by the series creators -- emerging from the Spirit World, it seems a solid bet that the comic series takes place after the conclusion of the show.

A follow-up series to beloved "Avatar: The Last Airbender," the critically acclaimed Korra ran for four seasons on Nickelodeon and centered on the new Avatar, the master of all four elements -- water, earth, fire, air -- and her journey to protect and bring balance to the world. To series addressed issues of identity, power, corruption and more and received countless praise for its mature themes and deeply developed characters and story.
