Can someone help me. Is it in one of the Avatar comics? Just curious.

It falls into the forest and we don't see it again in the episode.
A firebender comes out of the ship and fires at Sokka and Toph. They fall of the side and Sokka uses his sword in an attempt to stop the fall. They fall and land on a platform, breaking Sokka's leg and his sword landing just in front of him. Toph falls off and Sokka holds onto her hand.
Sokka [In pain.] My leg! Hang on Toph!
Toph Aye, aye, Captain. Two firebenders come out on the platforms next to them. One of them is about to shoot them off, but
Sokka throws his boomerang at him. He kicks his sword in to his hand and throws it at the other one's platform.
Sokka [Sadly.] Bye, space sword.
Although there's no canon explanation for its recovery, you can clearly see on this officially licensed poster that Sokka does indeed recover his sword.
