When Asami is kidnapped, Korra sets out to the Spirit Wilds to find her. Now teeming with dark spirits influenced by the half spirit-half human Tokuga, the landscape is more dangerous than ever before. The two women must trust in each other and work together if they are to make it out alive. Their fate is revealed in this stunning, action-packed conclusion to The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars!

It was great to be back in Republic City to see the crew working together to stop another threat. This series has highlighted Korra and Asami’s blossoming relationship in a wonderful way showing young love in it’s fledgling state even with all of the outside factors at play. It was also cool to see the airbenders taking a stand and hosting a peaceful protest and it shows just how misguided officials can be. All in all I totally recommend this for Legend of Korra fans!

When Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph return to Earthen Fire Industries–the factory owned by Toph’s father–Team Avatar finds that the once small town is now booming. Expecting a warm welcome, Aang is surprised when their arrival is met with unimpressed, cold-shouldered spectators. As soon as the team is asked for help at a business council meeting, the reason for the slight becomes clear–a massive bender versus non-bender conflict has gripped the town and is threatening to turn violent.

The Gaang is back with another adventure in the ATLA world and I just cannot get enough of these stories. Called to Earthen Fire Industries, the once small region has exploded in business and population, looking like the very beginnings of the great Republic City. This progress isn’t all sunshine though with people losing jobs and struggling to make a living. Plus the early stages of bender/non-bender tension are taking shape. The art and colors in this one were absolutely beautiful and just brought the world to life. Obviously I recommend picking this up if you love Avatar and I’m interested to see what this arc will explore next.


Are you an Avatar the Last Airbender or Legend of Korra fan? Have you read the comics?
