Chinese American author Gene Yang is going to tackle the graphic novelization of The Last Airbender. However, he plans on returning back to the original series’ Asian themes and characters rather than furthering the film’s version which white-washed all of the lead characters.
Gene is author of the award-winning book, American Born Chinese, which also happens to be on my Christmas list should you wish to send me a copy.
