Dark Horse Comics is no stranger to adapting filmmaker James Cameron’s highly-successful film franchises like Terminator and Alien into monthly comic book series, and that trend will continue in 2019 with the release of Avatar: Tsu’tey’s Path, set during the events of the original 2009 Avatar.
Writer Sherri L. Smith (Lucy the Giant, Flygirl and Orleans) will team with artist Jan Duursema (Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Wolverine: Knight of Terra), inker Dan Parsons (Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Game of Thrones) and colorist Wes Dzioba (Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Mystery Science Theater 3000) as they follow a proud Na’vi warrior whose world is rocked after the arrival of Jake Sully of the Sky People.

Avatar: Tsu’tey’s Path promises to reveal never-before-seen events that were only hinted at in Cameron’s Avatar, which holds the record for the highest grossing movie of all time. Cameron has plans to expand the world of Avatar with four movie sequels, the first scheduled to arrive in theaters in 2020.
Below is the cover for Avatar: Tsu’tey’s Path #1 by Doug Wheatley, who will provide covers for the six-issue companion series. Dark Horse’s Avatar: Tsu’tey’s Path #1 (of 6) by Sherri L. Smith, Jan Duursema, Dan Parsons and Wes Dzioba goes on sale January 16, 2019.
