This is the sort of thing that infuriates me that I didn't find it sooner. If you go to the Amazon site for The Promise Part One, and click on the book's cover, you can get a preview of the inside,as well as the back few pages. While you're there, preorder the book! From these pages, we know:
- The comic begins very similarly to episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender, but with an extension: "...I believed Aang could save the world. And you know what? I was right. With the help of his friends, Aang defeated Fire Lord Ozai and ended the hundred year war. Zuko, Ozai's son and our ally, became the new Fire Lord. Together with Earth King Kuei, Aang and Zuko promised to restore the four nations to harmony.
- This means Kuei will most likely make an appearance. (That means Bosco, too, and we all love him).
- The Promise Part Two cover is revealed (Again, follow the link)
- The Promise Part Two will come in May. The flavor text for Part Two reads, "What does Zuko learn from Ozai? Can Aang prevent the return to war? Will Sokka find a cure for his "oogies"? Find out in..."
- This means we might not find out about Ursa until Part Two.
- I have no idea what "oogies" are, but I guess we'll find out in Part 1.
- The back cover of The Promise Part One is revealed, as well as additional plot details: "...The Promise takes Aang to a Fire Nation colony in the heart of the Earth Nation, (sic) where tensions between neighbors threaten to shatter the world's newfound peace-- putting the Avatar on a collision course with one of his closest friends, Fire Lord Zuko!"

- Yes, I did just type all of those. And I probably didn't have to, since most of those are probably universal Dark Horse staff members.
- One more thing: Don't fret, the cover for Part Two definitely shows Aang at his correct age.
