“At the San Diego Comic-Con, Del Rey Manga announced that it will publish both a manga prequel and a manga adaptation of M. Night Shyamalan’s live-action feature film The Last Airbender, which is slated to debut on July 4th, 2010. Dave Roman (associate editor of Nickelodeon Magazine) is writing both the prequel and the adaptation. Joon Choi is illustrating the adaptation in full manga style, while Nina Matsumoto, who just won an Eisner for her work with Bongo comics and is the creator of Yokaiden, will illustrate the prequel, which is due out from Del Rey about three months prior to the movie’s debut.” –ICv2
That’s what I’ll be busy working on for the next few months! Alison Wilgus is co-writing both comics with Dave Roman. I met both of them at Comic-Con, and we’re all going to try our best to make this into something the fans of the TV show will be happy with since we are fans ourselves.
