Avatar: The High Ground Release

Avatar: The High Ground Release

Huge thanks to Exostike#9829 on Kelutral.org‘s Discord for keeping tabs on Avatar: The High Ground. This is a comic series that I’ve covered before due to a leak on Amazon. However the listing was later removed from some of the various Amazon countries, and no official information has surfaced about it. The only thing spotted so far apart from the Amazon listings was a couple of photos during a live stream that showed what appeared to be characters from the comic. Exo noticed and shared that the Amazon UK listing had been updated and the photo of the cover was re-uploaded in a higher resolution photo. After a quick search I turned up a bit more information. It appears Volume 1 will be Hardcover and is due to be published in December of this year. This is the first time this information has appeared when I’ve searched for it. However, as often as Dark Horse has had their Avatar comics pushed back, take the month of December with a grain of salt right now. However we have an idea when it is scheduled to release.

Avatar: Adapt or Die


As we enter further into the year of Avatar 2 we get our newest bit of Avatar media announced, Avatar: Adapt or Die from Dark Horse Comics. This is a 6 part series with issue one releasing on May 4th, 2022. So even us Avatar fans can have a good Star Wars day this year.

Decades into the advent of the Avatar program on Pandora, pressure to bridge the divide between human and Na’vi has hit a peak. As an ally of the Omatikaya clan, Dr. Grace Augustine begins negotiations to open a school for Na’vi children, but her plans for peace, hope, and unity could trigger an unprecedented disaster—one afflicting the most vulnerable and protected of Na’vi.

This sounds like a story diving further into the lore of Avatar 1. I love seeing things that happened off screen expanded upon. So I am very excited to see more of this book. I’m going to assume we will get more of the Neytiri/Sylwanin backstory from this as well, which I am very happy about. It will also be interesting seeing the Na’vi learn English from Grace at her school.

As more details are announced, previews shared, and preorders open up, well be sharing that info as well.

Clan rivalries erupt amid turmoil in an untold story set immediately after the events of James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster film Avatar! Jake Sully maintains his position as leader of the Omatikaya Na’vi clan, but with their Hometree destroyed, he begins to doubt his place among them. As the Na’vi and human feud persists, tensions between the clans begin to escalate as longstanding family animosities ignite–spawning treachery and betrayal!

Pre-order the upcoming Avatar: The Next Shadow trade paperback (TPB), at TFAW.com now. It collects all four issues of the mini series and is currently only $13.99, with a $19.99 suggested retail price, releasing on 8/11/21. I have the TPB for Tsu’tey’s Path and it is worth having even if you already own each individual comic already. This looks to have a cover we didn’t get in the main run showing Arvok and Jake Sully facing off in the First Blood ritual. I am very excited to see how this series finishes up with issue 4 coming out this coming Wednesday 4/14. If you still need a copy of issue 4 you can still pre-order on TFAW as well. Or you can buy it directly from Dark Horse digitally. You can save a few dollars going to digital route, as issues 1-3 are only $1.99 currently, with issue 4 at the cover price of $3.99 to pre-order.

Avatar: The High Ground new information

Avatar: The High Ground new information

I’ve come across a couple of additional bits of information for the much anticipated Avatar: The High Ground, the paperback book series which we first discussed back in October of 2019. If you need a refresher on what we knew check out this article-https://avatarsequels.com/avatar-the-high-ground/

The United Arab Emirates Amazon site has the book listed as-James Cameron’s Avatar: The High Ground Volume 1 Advent To War. That aligns with what we had already known, that the book was a series of three, so now we have the name of book one. AE Amazon also confirms the page length of being 96 pages, the same as the UK listing showed, and has the same ISBN numbers. Sadly no new information on the release as it shows the original date of 1/23/20. Hopefully after Avatar: The Next Shadow finishes up we will get more information on when The High Ground will release. Nick noticed that two of the pieces of character art from the Avatar: The Next Shadow Q&A showed two new Na’vi, and it looks like in the top left corner it says “High Ground.” So I believe we have a couple pieces of character art from the upcoming series. Thanks for the eagle eye on noticing that Nick. Pentyarus page shows is it from book 1, and neither character showed up in The Next Shadow issue 1.

Avatar: The Next Shadow Q&A with Josh Izzo, Jeremy Barlow, and Josh Hood

If you are like me and you are excited about the new Avatar comic releases you wont want to miss this video from Dark Horse Comics. It was streamed live yesterday and archived for all who missed it. The video is hosted by Cara O’Neil, featuring Joshua Izzo (VP of Franchise Development at Lightstorm), Jeremy Barlow (writer), and Josh Hood (artist). Further expanding on what we currently know about the series Avatar: The Next Shadow, we get to know the creative team behind the series, and learn more about the process of bringing the comic to life. Plus we learned the series takes place in a 1-2 week window after the movie ends.

If you need a physical copy, still you can purchase a Josh Hood autographed comic from https://shop.neighborhoodcomics.com/products/avatar-next-shadow I highly recommend Neighborhood comics, they are a great small shop who ships quickly and securely. I received my copies of issue 1 from them yesterday. If you are looking for a digital copy check out Dark Horse Digital Comics where you can instantly download and read the issues on release date. You can use your home pc, laptop, tablet, or phone to read the comics you purchase. I am not able to get my comics locally so I purchase the digital copy on the day it comes out, then wait for my physical copies to arrive. It’s something I did for the Tsu’tey series and enjoy it, that way I’m up to date and don’t get the story spoiled online while waiting for my physical copies.

These two character sheets were shown during the Q&A, they show us two previously unseen Na’vi, Yeyatley and Pentyaru. Nick noticed the top left of the character sheets seem to say High Ground. Pentyarus page says Book 1 and she doesn’t appear in The Next Shadow, so I believe these are indeed characters from the upcoming Avatar: The High Ground series.

Avatar: The High Ground

Avatar: The High Ground

While we don’t have any official word on this release yet, Amazon UK had a pre-order up for a new Avatar series called Avatar-The High Ground. The pre-order has since been taken down but I took some screen shots last night when I saw it. The listing is brief but still tells us a lot of great information. Plus the cover looks fantastic.

 

This sounds really exciting. I have been waiting a long time to see what has happened on Pandora since Avatar ended, and we finally get to dive into that world again. I love that the book will be 96 pages, and is the first in a series of three. If the other two hold up we will be getting almost 300 pages of new Avatar goodness. I can’t wait to be introduced into the Sully family and revisit familiar faces and meet the all new ones. Being based of James Cameron’s unused sequel, and adapted by Sherri Smith almost assures us a fantastic story. Sherri was the writer of the previous Avatar comic series, Avatar-Tsu’tey’s Path. Even though the listing was pulled I hope it sticks to the January 23rd, 2020 release date and we will soon be diving back into some new Avatar goodness.

Big thanks to Nick for sharing this with me. Give him a follow, he’s a long time Avatar fan.
