There will be a piece of Avatar in another one Nickelodeon's nostalgic titles.

If you like Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, Bryan Konietzko--the co-creator of both series--has drawn a variant cover of the next Invader Zim issue, which will be available on Oni Press next month.

Konietzko showed the cover off on his Tumblr page. The picture shows Zim, the villain protagonist of the series, beating Dib, his arch nemesis.

"The nice folks at Oni," Konietzko stated, "including some friends of mine who have since moved on to other endeavors, emphatically approached Nickelodeon about exhuming Zim in comic form.

They knew the show was special to me and asked if I would contribute a variant cover.

Here's what I came up with (along with my original sketch with a nixed trumpet mouth on Zim), minus the logos so you can see more waffles."

Most fans would prefer Konietzko to work on more Avatar related material. That, however, is unlikely--for now, at least.

Legend of Korra ended in a fashion that won't soon be forgotten, with Korra and Asami walking off into the spirt-laden sunset.

But the Avatar universe is currently on hiatus, as Konietzko and Mike DiMartino parted ways in March. They told Hypabale that they were "tired and burnt out" after making two of television's most iconic cartoons in recent memory.
