Avatar: Brothers is the first comic from Dark Horse's Avatar comic line. It was a special issue written for Free Comic Book Day 2017 by Sherri L. Smith, illustrated by Doug Wheatley, and colored by Wes Dzioba. The cover art was done by Dave Wilkins. The lettering was done by Michael Heisler. The full issue is available to read online for free with a Dark Horse Digital account.
The issue focuses on Jake Sully's bond with the Great Leonopteryx, strengthening it through his memories of his brother and the stories he shared about great historical & mythical partnerships. The story is set during the events of the first film as a "comic book exclusive scene" with Jake preparing for the final battle in the Pandoran War, showing what happened between him jumping onto the Great Leonopteryx and him arriving at the Tree of Souls. The issue also features a preview of another Dark Horse published comic, Briggs Land, written by Brian Wood and illustrated by Werther Dell'Edera.
Mashable previewed the finalized cover and first two pages of the FCBD 2017 issue on January 31st, 2017. The cover is mostly unchanged from the original art previewed, with the exception of the likeness on it changed to Jake in his battle gear during the Assault on the Tree of Souls.
- Jake's expression on the Free Comic Book Day 2017 cover strongly resembles his expression on the Sideshow Collectibles Hot Toys 1:6 scale Jake Sully collectable figure.
