Today at the ComicsPRO retailer summit, Dark Horse Comics revealed details on the next installment of their Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel line.

Avatar: The Last Airbender – North and South Part One will once again be written by Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Superman) and illustrated by Gurihiru.

Here’s Dark Horse’s synopsis:

When Aang leaves to aid Zuko with the Kemurikage, Katara and Sokka return to the Southern Water Tribe by themselves. Katara is shocked to find that her beloved village has become a bustling city, with none other than their father, Hakoda, in charge! A Northerner named Malina seems to be behind this change, pushing the North and South to be more unified…but what are her true goals?

The Dark Horse Comics graphic novels are the in canon continuation of the story of Avatar Aang, created in conjunction with Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.

Avatar: The Last Airbender – North and South Part One goes on sale Sept. 28, 2016.
