Dark Horse Announces 'Avatar: The Last Airbender - Chibi' All-Ages Book Line


Dark Horse Books and Nickelodeon are pleased to reveal a new line of books for the smallest fans of Avatar: the Last Airbender in the upcoming book line Avatar: The Last Airbender—Chibi, launching September 2021!

Avatar: The Last Airbender—Chibi launches with "Aang’s Unfreezing Day". When Aang was frozen in an iceberg for a hundred years, he managed to forget his birthday! Luckily his friends Katara, Toph, Sokka, and Zuko plan to surprise him with a new special day to celebrate. But they’ll have to be careful while they prepare--it’s a surprise!

The title and art style derives from the Japanese term chibi (“small”), often used to refer to small, cute caricature art. Nickelodeon has previously released a series of animated Avatar: The Last Airbender chibi shorts.

Celebrated children’s author and illustrator Kelly Leigh Miller (I am a Wolf; I Love My Fangs) teams with Avatar fandom favorite artist Diana Sim - a Seneca College graduate who has gained an online following for her Avatar/Korra fan art - to bring young Avatar fans and their families this heartwarming tale of love, celebration, and friendship, in collaboration with Nickelodeon and Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series writer Tim Hedrick, who also served as a consultant on several Dark Horse Avatar and Legend of Korra comics.

Avatar: The Last Airbender -- Chibi Vol. 1: Aang’s Unfreezing Day arrives September 7, 2021 and is available for pre-order now through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and your local comic shops. Follow NickALive! for more Avatar: The Last Airbender—Chibi announcements and reveals!

The announcement comes in the wake of this week’s news that Nickelodeon have created Avatar Studios, a division headed by series creators Michael DeMartino and Bryan Konietzko, that will produce new films and TV shows set in the world of Avatar. A theatrical animated film is due to begin production later this year, while other projects are planned for the streaming service Paramount+, and even more platforms.
