Avatar: The Next Shadow is a four issue comic book miniseries from Dark Horse's Avatar comic line. The comic is the first official continuation of the Avatar storyline past the events of the first movie, set immediately after the events of the first Avatar film. The miniseries is written by Jeremy Barlow with interior art by Josh Hood and covers by Gui Balbi. Wes Dzioba is also credited for the first issue. The first issue was released in print and digital on January 6, 2021.

Similar to the accidental reveal of Avatar: The High Ground, The Next Shadow was first revealed by a later deleted tweet from the official Avatar Twitter account on October 15. The announcement was officially posted the day after with an exclusive preview from The Hollywood Reporter.[2][3]


Set just after the events of AVATAR, the story continues as Jake Sully finds himself ill-equipped to defuse the internal conflicts threatening to tear the Omaticaya apart.
