Avatar #1: Shadowdale is the first issue in a trilogy of graphic novels illustrating the Avatar series novels. It was published by DC Comics in 1991.
The Tablets of Fate have been stolen. Ao, creator and ruler of the gods, is furious. And Faerûn will be made to suffer the price of his rage as he banishes the gods to the realm of humans and elves. The gods will stop at nothing to recover the stolen relics and appease Ao's anger...and the gods help any human (or other being) who gets in their way.
