Anybody who watched and loved the unique Avatar: The Last Airbender has a selected villain that’s their favourite, and for a lot of, that baddie is Zuko’s sister Azula. The princess of the Hearth Nation was stays fairly intimidating even right now, and is a part of one of many present’s greatest moments.
It’s been awhile since she’s been featured within the comics, however later this 12 months, she’ll be headlining a graphic novel of her personal. Azula within the Spirit Temple was revealed formally last year, however Screenrant not too long ago revealed the e book’s launch date on September 26 and 27. Written by Religion Erin Hicks and drawn by Peter Wartman, it’ll decide up the place 2016’s Smoke & Shadow left off, along with her on the run after making an attempt to groom Zuko into a greater Hearth Lord in her personal, bizarre approach. When a mission along with her followers doesn’t go as deliberate, Azula winds up in a forest temple inhabited by a single monk.
“What first looks as if a spot to securely move the evening is rapidly revealed to be one thing horrifyingly completely different,” reads Darkish Horse’s description. “Azula is compelled to confront her previous and can lastly face her probability at redemption…however will she take it?”
The Azula comedian continues a pattern of standalone targeted on particular Final Airbender characters. Joined by collection author Tim Hedrick, Hicks and Wartman beforehand labored on graphic novels targeted on Katara, Toph Beifong, and Suki in 2020 and 2021. These have all been fairly good and captured the spirit of the present fairly properly, and it’s uncertain that pattern will finish with Azula’s. What’ll be attention-grabbing to see, although, is that if Azula will get the redemption story that some followers have thought she deserved—in spite of everything, if her brother and uncle did, there’s no rule saying she will be able to’t—or if she’ll simply embrace that she’s evil as hell and preserve menacing her household.
