Artist Peter Wartman Talks New 'Avatar: Imbalance' Comic Series at NYCC 2018

The past decade has treated fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender, Nickelodeon’s iconic animated series, kindly. Since the show’s finale aired in 2008, a well-received sequel series, Legend of Korra, has been released and recently, a live-action retelling of the original series was announced for Netflix. Also helping keep Avatar fans satisfied is publisher Dark Horse Comics, which has released a number of graphic novels that continue the stories of Avatars Aang and Korra.


At this year’s New York Comic Con, The Beat sat down with artist Peter Wartman, who’s working with writer Faith Erin Hicks to bring to life one of the next tales in the Avatar universe. Together, they’re crafting Avatar: The Last Airbender — Imbalance, a three part story that focuses on Avatar Aang and his friends.

According to the official Avatar: The Last Airbender — Imbalance Part One synopsis released by Dark Horse, the first graphic novel follows Team Avatar visiting a town where there’s a conflict between benders and non-benders.

This interview has been condensed and edited for clarity.

Aaron Halls: Can you talk about your relationship with Avatar: The Last Airbender prior to working on this series?

Peter Wartman: It was a show I watched in college, basically. It was sort of like — it showed me you could tell deeper stories in kind of this style. I hadn’t really been into anime or anything like that, but this show sort of was like a gateway to that kind of thing. It made me more interested in telling stories like that, and also stylistically it was a big influence. It was a big thing to me in a lot of ways, I guess.

Halls: Was there a particular episode that made you go “Oh, ok!”?

Wartman: There was that early episode called “The Blue Spirit.” That’s when it really went from being just a pretty good Nickelodeon show to being like ‘Oh, they’re going somewhere with this.’

“The Blind Bandit,” after that, was another level up [moment] and there was one more episode — the one with Hama– I can’t remember the name of the episode [“The Puppetmaster”], but it was that creepy ghost story. It’s still one of my favorite episodes of TV even though I can’t remember the name of it. This show was a huge thing to me.

Halls: What do you think it is about the Avatar universe that allows it to successfully connect with so many fans– not just on a screen, but also on the pages of a comic?

Wartman: I think Avatar really benefits from having these great characters. I think that’s the main thing that really makes it work, [characters] who all have these interesting dynamics with each other. They can be kind of goofy sometimes; they can be just playing around and being kids, but they all have a past that’s a little more serious and there’s a curve of this wider dialogue about war and how that changes things.

This show manages to at once be silly and fun and also meaningful. I’m not sure how much that is due to the world building as opposed to just good writing, but everything seems to works together to create this better whole; even the elemental stuff can push those metaphors too. Aang has to overcome his fear of fire after he burns Katara — that has a resonance with his need to pay more attention. Stuff like that really makes this show so strong; [and] Zuko’s arc is just one of the best redemption arcs.

Halls: Can you tell me a little bit about what it’s like working with writer Faith Erin Hicks?

Wartman: Yeah, Faith is great. Because she’s also an artist, the scripts she gives me are written with the visuals in mind. She gives me a lot of places to play with character emotions and really think about how I want to pace things — she never gives me too much to do in a panel. I think her ideas’ about the politics of this world and how this city is changing things and how Aang has to change; all these characters have to change, and deal with problems they don’t necessarily see. I’m really excited about where it’s going.

I can’t give too many spoilers away, but I think we’re both on the same wavelength about trying to keep in mind all those things I said about how this show has this hidden depth under its fun exterior. I think she’s doing a great job of really digging into that and understanding the characters.


Aang character designs by Wartman

Halls: You’re also working with original [Avatar: The Last Airbender] series creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko on this comic. How exciting is that?

Wartman: It’s crazy. It’s really crazy getting notes on my art from Bryan — like really good, really detailed, ‘Here’s how you should be doing it.’ I learned so much from it. [It’s] really intimidating too because you have to get the kung fu right because he’ll notice. I think that makes it so much stronger if you have someone who really cares about us and they definitely do. [They’re] willing to make sure that you’re treating it correctly.

So it’s been hard, but in a really good way, knowing that the people I’m making this for care about it as much, or more, than I do which is nice. It’s fulfilling maybe? It’s great. It’s fun.

Halls: The Avatar world is extremely imaginative— you’ve got animal hybrids, spirits, benders— all that stuff. Creatively speaking as an artist, was this an exciting universe to be able to jump into?

Wartman: Yeah, it’s interesting. There’s a lot of that but because it draws so heavily upon the real world, all these different Asian cultures, I spent a lot of time trying to make sure that I’m researching those things. The show’s already done a lot of the heavy work. I have this amazing book of all the concept arts, that came out a long time ago, but it shows their process and has all of the different nations, buildings, and stuff.

I’m referencing that a lot, but I’m also referencing a lot of photos, and trying to make sure that everything we do is grounded. So even though the world is kind of crazy, like you said, it also owes a lot to the real world; I actually have to do a lot of research to make sure that all works.

Halls: I know you talked about this at the [Dark Horse] panel a little bit, but you have your own Avatar-ish young adult [comic] series with Over the Wall and Stonebreaker. Do you feel like working on these helped you prep for working on Avatar?

Wartman: I think so. I mean, it definitely taught me how to tell a story visually, which is super important when you’re trying to do 72 page books in this short period of time; you have to know what you’re doing, so in that sense it taught me a lot. I think also my style sort of looks a lot like the show so that helps me I guess. It was definitely a necessary step for me to do this — to really figure out how to write and draw and all of that.

Halls: In working on a web comic [with a project like Stonebreaker], compared to working with a publisher now, was there any hurtles or anything like that?

Wartman: To switching to working for the publisher?

Halls: Yeah.

Wartman: Working with Faith’s the first time I haven’t also been the writer of my own work, so that was a big shift, but mostly I haven’t found it to be too hard. It’s a very different thing to interpret someone else’s words. It’s a very different thing to have to send your images in and have them get critiqued. Everything has been very positive, where it’s never been something I’ve disagreed with, it’s always been about making it better. It’s been also fun to learn how to collaborate instead of just [doing] everything yourself. It can lead to different places and lead to characters having different interactions then you necessarily would have considered — it’s better that way. So yeah, I’ve enjoyed it.

Halls: I know you talked in the panel about your favorite characters to draw, but can you talk about why artistically you like drawing them? I think you said Toph —

Wartman: Toph is fun. All the main characters are very distinct shapes and their designs are great. It’s really fun to draw Sokka because he’s so noodly. Toph is fun because she’s very solid; even the way her hair is always covering her eyes kind of giving her that, maybe not even like mysterious, but mischievous kind of thing.

Every character gives you different things to play with. Katara is very thoughtful, and that’s a different kind of body stance. Aang is a bit more playful, but he can also be thoughtful. It’s fun to always have these different ways you can draw expression.


Katara character designs by Wartman

Halls: Just to wrap everything up — why should fans, both old and new to the series, be pumped for Imbalance?

Wartman: I think Faith has written a really interesting story that is going to be really exciting. It’s bringing the original series a little closer to Korra — showing some of that connection. I think it still has [those] serious undertones while still being pretty funny at times. I hope I’ve done a pretty good job with showing the city, and putting a lot of time into that, and making the fighting look cool. I hope that will make it an exciting thing to see and live up to the show.

Avatar: The Last Airbender-Imbalance Part One is scheduled for release on December 18, 2018 with its second part scheduled for April 16, 2019. The third part’s release date has yet to be announced by Dark Horse Comics.

Mattel Partners with Network Rail for Thomas the Tank Engine Railway Safety Campaign

Network Rail partners with Thomas the Tank Engine to teach children railway safety


Network Rail, the owner and infrastructure manager of most of the railway network in Great Britain has teamed up with the world’s most famous blue engine and pre-schooler favourite, Thomas the Tank Engine, to help children learn how to be safe when using the railway!

The Stay Safe with Thomas story book sees the mischievous Thomas having fun on the railway over being safe, putting both himself and his friends in harm’s way. He learns valuable lessons on the dangers of not stopping at a level crossing when the red light shows, leaving gates open to allow animals on to the tracks and when people stand too close to the edge of a platform.

This is the first time a Thomas and Friends book has covered a rail safety theme.

Network Rail, along with British Transport Police, hopes the story book will encourage parents to discuss rail safety with their young children, in the same manner that they teach them about other dangers they may encounter when out and about.

“The railway is full of both obvious and hidden dangers” said Allan Spence, head of public and passenger safety at Network Rail. “By offering parents an engaging and fun way to talk to their children at a young age about safety on the railway, we hope children will grow up knowing the dangers and keep themselves and their friends safe.”

The launch of the story book comes off the back of the ‘You vs Train’ campaign, ran by the rail industry and the British Transport Police (BTP), which targeted older children and teenagers to warn them of the dangers of the railway and that it isn’t a playground.


In the last five years, the number of young people taking risks on the railway has gone up by almost 80 per cent, according to National Fusion Unit data from June 2018.

Superintendent Susan Peters said: “We are delighted to be collaborating on this initiative, our focus is keeping people safe and working with such a well-known children’s television character is exciting. This Thomas the Tank engine story book gives us an engaging and accessible way to ensure essential safety messaging is reaching young children. Although BTP runs activity through the year to educate the public of the seen and unseen dangers in and around the railway tracks, we hope that being able discuss this subject through the use of these books will make our safety messages go further.”

Senior Regional Licensing Manager, Publishing at Mattel Consumer Products, Maribel Le Gelebart, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Network Rail on the launch of the Stay Safe with Thomas storybook. Thomas & FriendsTM has been teaching life lessons for over 70 years through storybooks as well as its exciting content and product ranges. So, it was a natural fit to collaborate on a rail safety storybook which leverages and reinforces the brands’ key values of friendship, teamwork and safety.”

Network Rail and the British Transport Police (BTP) are distributing copies of the book to local libraries, nurseries and doctors’ surgeries across the country. A free, electronic version of the book will be available to download from mid-October 2018.

To download your free copy of the Thomas & Friends: Stay Safe with Thomas eBook please visit: www.networkrail.co.uk/thomas (available in English and Welsh editions and iTunes and PDF formats).

Thomas the Tank Engine™ was created over 70 years ago, by a British clergyman, the Rev W Awdry, as a storybook for his son. That story quickly grew to become the award-winning #1 preschool train brand franchise it is today, enjoyed by families in more than 160 territories and over 55 languages across multiple touch-points and formats, including: 500+ original TV shows; 12 feature-length films; selling 1 engine every second; apps; toys; consumer products; publishing; live attractions and much more. Thomas & Friends is viewable on more than 30 world-class broadcasters including Nick Jr. in the US, Super RTL in Germany, and on Five's Milkshake! in the UK.

To better portray diversity, Thomas & Friends has received an update for its 26 x 11-minute 22nd season. Entitled Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!, the new season takes Thomas beyond the fictional Island of Sodor for the first time. The major refresh sees the iconic blue engine Thomas travelling farther than ever before, taking kids on a journey of wonder and curiosity as he adventures around the world to discover and learn about new countries and cultures. The show has a more contemporary feel, a brand-new theme tune and a refreshed Steam Team to include three girls and three boy engines, and Thomas, ensuring gender equality across the show, increasing global appeal for preschool viewers. This all-new format series features faster-paced action, increased humour, new music, new international friends, animals and exciting fantasy elements. Thomas & Friends season 22, "Big World! Big Adventures!" is airing now on Milkshake! in the UK (which has seen a 40% growth in viewers) and on Nickelodeon USA, and is now rolling out across the globe.

A 23rd season of the beloved children's series was recently greenlit.

Thomas & Friends can also be viewed across digital platforms including Hulu, iTunes, YouTube and more. On YouTube, the Thomas & Friends channel has had over 1.16 billion lifetime views, over 909k subscribers and 2.6MM engagements.
