Dark Horse announced that Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra will be getting some titles for Free Comic Book Day. The publisher told fans about the news on social media, and people are excited. Over the course of the coronavirus pandemic, both series have experienced a surge of interest. Both The Last Airbender and Korra were highly-influential kids shows during their heyday. With Dark Horse's titles, fans can get even more of the story with characters like Aang and his friends. (If you've ever wondered what happened to the Avatars after the curtain fell, this is where you're going to want to look.) So, this is obviously a cause for celebration among the fandom. And more importantly, it's all free, which means the barrier to entry is basically just access to a computer and a local comic shop.
Dark Horse describes their Silver offering on August 14th.
