[Update: in the original post, we mistakenly identified the release date of the first season of "The Legend of Korra" as set for May. This has not been confirmed by Nickelodeon, but we'll have an update for you when there is a concrete release date.]
The hardcover "The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series—Book One: Air" will out July 24 from Dark Horse, featuring commentary from the show's creators.
In spite of feeling a little short (and focusing a tad too much of the Pro Bending League), "The Legend of Korra" was a worthy followup to three excellent seasons of "Avatar: The Last Airbender." In July, Dark Horse has partnered with Nickelodeon to release a 184-page hardcover featuring the art of the series.
From the official synopsis:
THE LEGEND OF KORRA: THE ART OF THE ANIMATED SERIES BOOK ONE-AIR HC
Michael Dante DiMartino (W) and Bryan Konietzko (W/Cover)
On sale July 24
FC, 184 pages
HC, 9" x 12"
This handsome hardcover contains hundreds of pieces of never-before-seen artwork created during the development of Season 1 of The Legend of Korra.
