The most badass earthbender in the Avatar: The Last Airbender is getting her own novel. Toph Beifong won the hearts of Avatar fans across the globe for her bravery and killer eartbending moves in the said fictional universe.
At only twelve years old, she discovered how to bend metal — something that was previously thought to be impossible. She even started her own school to teach metalbending to others. Now, Toph and her academy will be getting their own graphic novel, titled Toph Beifong’s Metalbending Academy.
Described by publisher Dark Horse as “the ultimate continuation” of the animated series, Toph Beifong’s Metalbending Academy is written by Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City) with input from animated series writer Tim Hedrick, with artwork from Peter Wartman and colors by Adele Matera.
It is priced at $12.99, or roughly P640.
This will be the second standalone graphic novel set in the Avatar universe after Katara and the Pirate’s Silver, which is set to be released later this year. Faith Erin Hicks, author of Katara and the Pirate’s Silver and the Imbalance trilogy, is also behind Toph’s standalone, which will be published by Dark Horse Comics.
“Toph Beifong’s Metalbending Academy” is set for release in February 16, 2021.
