Last Airbender Manga Sample


Canadian comic book artist Nina Matsumoto, who will be working on The Last Airbender manga prequel, recently posted a piece of fan art of Avatar: The Last Airbender on her deviantART page.


While she admits she will not be rendering the Gaang like this for the actual prequel manga, it’s a nice sample of her style and a taste of things to come. She does go on to note that the prequel manga will chronicle Zuko’s banishment.

Thanks go out to valalight for the tip!

    The manga will cover Zuko’s banishment?

    Does that…does that mean it won’t be in the movie?

    • sam Says:

      No, I don’t think it means that at all…

      this manga is covering what happens in the movie, same with the TV show manga. If anything that means his banishment definitely will be covered in the movie.
      That’s my opinion, though. You can look at this matter however you like.

      • pg15 Says:

        But this is for the prequel manga, not the manga that reflects what’s in the movie.

        Believe me, I’m not trying to be negative, but this is what springs to mind when I read this.

    • Tasunara Says:

      No, it’s going to cover Zuko’s banishment by the movie’s standards.

    • sam Says:

      To your reply:

      Huh, I guess you’re right. I must have overlooked where it said “prequel”.

      But, that doesn’t mean it won’t be in the movie. This could just be where it starts before Zuko gets his scar, and then the story moves on from that point. In the movie they could still do a flashback to it. Just because it’s in the prequel doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t be talked about in the movie.
      I was having trouble wording that, though, so if you don’t understand what I’m saying I get why. 😉

      But actually the movie really has no choice but to cover why he has his scar. Without that information the whole storyline falls apart, really.

    like the style, though! Can’t wait to see the comic.

  14. Paige Says:

    I think it will cover the banishment if full detail, not just iroh telling the story 😀

    I used to read the artist’s webcomic Saturnalia, before it went on permanent hiatus, and enjoyed it immensely. She certainly has a very unique, interesting art style, and a pretty good grasp of pacing and story. Plus, she makes funnies! So, all in all, I’m actually pretty excited about this piece of news.

  16. Hatter Says:

    Hey! They posted a pic of what Zuko is gonna look like!

  17. admiral360dude Says:

    Aang does look like a girl. Does Sokka’s head look a little too long and pointy?
