The Search is a graphic novel trilogy set one year after the events of The Promise, and preceding those detailed in The Rift. The trilogy was released in three separate installments by Dark Horse Comics in collaboration with Nickelodeon throughout 2013. A hardcover edition containing the entire trilogy will be released on February 5, 2014. It focuses on Zuko and Azula as they search for their mother Ursa, with Team Avatar accompanying them to keep the mentally unstable princess in check.
The Search trilogy includes:
- Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko originally pitched Ursa's fate as the plot for a television movie of the same title, but Nickelodeon rejected the idea, which led to the comic trilogy instead.
